23 Myths About the National Toxicology Program Cell Phone Radiation Cancer Study
Correcting the Misinformation


The National Toxicology Program (NTP) study found an association between cell phone radiation and cancer prompting an astonishing chorus of criticism from almost every prominent media outlet in the country.

Environmental Health Trust analyzed the media response and found a pattern of consistent inaccurate and misleading statements repeated over and over again in literally hundreds of news articles. Most of the criticisms levied at the NTP findings are inaccurate and simply do not hold up to scientific scrutiny.

We have counted a total of 23 myths. Sometimes they are quotes and sometimes they are the journalists statements. Either way, the more such false facts are put forth without scientific response, the more DOUBT is perpetuated. These myths inaccurately portray the NTP study and allow the important results to be downplayed.

Please take the time to inform yourself of the FACTS about the study.

23 Myths About the National Toxicology Program Cell Phone Radiation Study

Click on the Myth below
Myth 21: This study needs to be replicated before we believe it.
Myth 22: The NTP study is not groundbreaking and will have little impact on federal health agency recommendations.
Myth 23: The NTP study was not peer reviewed and was rejected by medical journals.


Overarching Myth #1:
The NTP study is just one rat study that is irrelevant to humans because the radiation exposures were far higher than humans get from cell phones.

Fact:
This is the world’s largest, most carefully done study on wireless radiation specifically designed to mimic human exposures in rodents. Every agent that is known to cause cancer in humans has been shown to be carcinogenic in animals when adequately tested.
