Could your cell phone be endangering your health?
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Researchers have long known that cell phones emit radio frequency energy, a form of low level radiation and a recent study revealed how dangerous it may be.
Researchers at the National Institutes of health spent four years exposing rats and mice to the same type of energy emitted from cell phones. They discovered a rare type of tumor in male rats and no obvious effects in female rats.
The FDA concluded that current safety limits for cell phones are acceptable.
However, epidemiologist Dr. Devra Davis isn’t convinced.
“We know that sell phone radiation damages DNA, we know that it can damage sperm. Those studies have been done and we ignore them at our peril," she said.
