Cell Phone Radiation Classified as a Group 2B Possible Carcinogen — Joins the Ranks of Lead, DDT, Coal Burning and Dry-Cleaning Chemicals

“Dr. Joseph Mercola’s latest book — ‘EMF*D’ — introduces the reader to the concept that electronic and wireless technology emits frequencies in the form of dirty electricity and microwave radiation that can harm your health …

This book comes at an interesting time when governments around the world are racing to roll out 5G wireless technology, without any testing of the biological and health effects of long-term exposure ... It is no longer enough for us to eat organic, drink purified water, inhale fresh air, exercise, and get plenty of sleep to stay healthy.

We must also minimize our exposure to the harmful effects of electromagnetic pollution. Learn how to reduce your exposure and how to repair EMF-related damage by reading Dr. Mercola's book, 'EMF*D'. You won't be disappointed!"

There’s no question wireless EMFs are unsafe. A working group of nearly 30 scientists appointed by the National Institute of Environmental Health Services (NIEHS) carried out important research after Congress passed the Energy Policy Act in 1992.

In 1998, NIEHS produced a 532-page report in which the experts voted 19 to 9 in favor of designating EMFs as a “possible carcinogen.” As you can imagine, that decision created much backlash, spurring yet another 10-year, $30 million, 13-country study.

Cell phone radiation is a Group 2B "possible" carcinogenic, similar to the pesticide DDT, now banned in the U.S

The Interphone Study looked specifically at the effects of cell phone radiation and its potential role in brain cancer.
The results of this study were interesting indeed…

While they reported “inconclusive” results and no overall increased risk of brain tumors for cell phone users, they found that “heavy users” — or those using their cell phones for more than two hours per month — had an approximately 80% greater risk of glioma, a life-threatening and often-fatal brain tumor, after 10 years of cell phone use.

A review of the data finally landed cell phone radiation exposure a “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” or Group 2B classification, the same category as the pesticide DDT, lead, gasoline engine exhaust, burning coal and dry-cleaning chemicals.
