NTP architect insists the FDA is misleading the public – Risk of Brain Tumors is Real

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — American Brain Tumor Study finds brain cancer to be the #1 cancer for children 15-19 years old; meanwhile, FDA releases statement distorting and minimizing the significance of a landmark study $30 Million NIH National Toxicology Program Study which found Clear Evidence that wireless non-ionizing radiation causes brain cancer, heart cancer and DNA damage non-thermally below current FCC safety guidelines.

“What most people do not understand is that THE FDA DOES NOT DO SAFETY TESTING OF WIRELESS DEVICES BEFORE THEY ARE RELEASED ONTO THE MARKET EXPOSING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE The FDA does not do post market safety surveying to see how heavy users are developing more cancer and neurological disorders like they do with drugs and medical devices.  We are seeing a dramatic increase in brain tumors in the three areas of the brain that get the most radiation from cell phones: frontal lobe, temporal lobe, and cerebellum.  The Italian Supreme court has already ruled that cell phones can cause brain cancer.  In essence without premarket safety testing, we have become the lab rats in a massive human experiment of nonionizing radiation health effects,” insists President of US Brain Tumor Association Kevin Mottus.

According to Ron Melnick PhD, former Senior Scientist and Leader of the team that designed the National Toxicology Program Study, “For the FDA to dismiss the findings of the NTP study saying exposure levels were 50 times allowable whole body exposures limits for humans is misleading the public because it is local exposure limits which are more relevant to human risk and this study was designed to test the effect of local exposures levels on the brain and other organs.  The highest exposure levels were only 4 times as high as the local exposure limits for humans and yet there was still tumor growth at the lowest exposures which were slightly below FCC local exposure limits.

In toxicology and cancer studies like those conducted by the NTP, we need higher exposure levels so we can extrapolate these findings to the larger population and to better understand the relationships between dose and health effects.  This is standard practice in Toxicology and the FDA is taking advantage of the public not understanding this.  We chose wireless radiation levels that would create radiation levels in the brain of rats comparable to those permitted by current FCC exposure guidelines.

Rat studies have been the gold standard for predicting toxicity and carcinogenicity in humans for decades even by the FDA’s in their own studies so why now is there no direct relationship between the results of this study and human cell phone use?  Why then did the FDA nominate this study which cost $30 million of tax payer money and took 16 years if they thought it was irrelevant to humans?  The NTP study was qualitative research and it did its job–it proved that wireless nonionizing radiation can cause cancer and DNA damage nonthermally which was previously believed to be impossible by proponents of the wireless industry and others.  Now the FDA is suppose to do its Quantative Risk Assessment to determine its health risk to humans but it refuses to do so and insists on making these misleading statements that mask the conclusive findings of this study.

The important lesson we should learn from the NTP studies is that we can no longer assume that any current or future wireless technology is safe without adequate safety testing” (

The Italian Supreme Court has ruled that cell phones can cause brain tumors.  In this country, we can no longer pretend the evidence is inconclusive; the NTP study provides conclusive evidence that wireless radiation can cause cancer and other serious effects.  The FDA statement failed to take into consideration the fact that no one is only exposed to one source of wireless radiation today as in the NTP study.  Most of us are exposed to a multitude of low and higher frequencies at varying distances for most if not all of the day.

Yes WiFi and 5G do have different frequencies and modulations; they pulse more and 5G will be more highly modulated to carry more data.  Pulsation and modulation are both factors which our scientists believe contribute to the bioactivity of wireless radiation rather than power and heating which has been proven by the NTP study as an incorrect assumptions when determining the safety of wireless radiation and our safety guidelines which are based on this false assumption must be updated immediately.

Action must be taken to protect our population and minimize our exposure to carcinogenic wireless radiation; obviously the FDA is shirking their responsibility to protect us based on their statement released Thursday.  This is unacceptable and the FDA should be held responsible for the unnecessary sickness and death caused by harmful wireless radiation exposure,” insists Kevin Mottus President of US Brain Tumor Association.

1st November 2018 –  Final Report on the NTP Cell Phone Radiation Study is released. 

Clear Evidence of Carcinogenicity

“Given the widespread global usage of mobile communications among users of all ages, even a very small increase in the incidence of disease resulting from exposure to [radio-frequency radiation] could have broad implications for public health.”  NTP Report on Cell Phones and Carcinogenicity

The National Toxicology Program (NTP), which cost $25 million dollars and took  10 years to complete, concluded there is clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones developed cancerous heart tumours.
The NTP found what it calls “clear evidence” that these two different types of cell phone signals  increased the incidence of malignant tumors in the hearts of male rats over the course of the two-year study. Higher incidences of brain and adrenal tumours were also seen.
The Study did not include frequencies from 4G, wifi, or 5G radiation.  We are now exposed to an increased mix of 2G, 3G, 4G, 4G+ and Wifi pulsed radiation frequencies globally.  5G technology is intended to be rolled out across the planet. 

What did the studies find?

The NTP studies found that high exposure to RFR used by cell phones was associated with:

  • An increase in tumors of the heart (schwannomas), brain (malignant gliomas) and  adrenal gland (pheochromocytomas)
  • Increases in other organ tumors compared to controls (not statistically significant but noteworthy) for pancreas, prostate, pituitary, liver and lung
  • DNA damage in rodents
  • Cardiomyopathy similar to aging
  • Adverse perinatal effects in some groups

About The EMF Call

Urgent Need for Truly Protective Limits for Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz)

On November 1st, 2018, in order to protect the public and the environment from the known harmful effects from electromagnetic fields (EMF), The EMF Call was launched. It is signed by 157 scientists and medical doctors together with 86 non-governmental organizations. New medical guidelines need to be developed that represent the state of medical science and are truly protective. They also need to be developed  without any industry influence.

The EMF Call also urges all governments, the UN and the WHO not to accept the ICNIRP guidelines, issued as draft on 11th July 2018. ICNIRP’s guidelines pose a serious risk to human health and the environment. They allow harmful exposure to the world population, including the most vulnerable. They are not protective. They do not represent an objective evaluation of the available science on effects from this form of radiation.

About This International Appeal

The signatories to this Appeal are scientists, doctors and environmental organizations from every continent who have been working tirelessly for many years to call the world’s attention to an invisible assault on our biosphere. That assault can be ignored no longer.

5G—the 5th generation of wireless technology—must not be built on Earth or in Space. The notion that radio frequency radiation, commonly known as radio waves, is somehow not real radiation and is harmless, was disproven by the 1970s in laboratories all over the world, and the harm to humans, animals and plants has since been confirmed in over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies. If 5G is built, radiation levels will increase 10- to 100-fold, virtually overnight, everywhere. There will literally be no place on Earth to hide from it.


The effects of levels of radio frequency radiation already existing now on the health of the population and the environment, as reflected in quality of life; high rates of cancer, neurological disease, heart disease and diabetes, even in children; plummeting populations of birds, bees and butterflies; and unhealthy forests, can be seen and felt everywhere.

We urge governments and the public to read the Appeal carefully, and to act accordingly.

THE TESTIMONY OF THE TREES – New Poetry Book Raises Awareness on EMF

Lynne Wycherley’s new volume is a prayer for the living world in the face of dark digital trends. In an age increasingly swallowed up by wireless radiation, corporate greed, and addiction to small screens, embattled trees, children – and even DNA – shimmer with endangered beauty. Long-known as a lyrical poet, and more recently as a science writer, Wycherley has brought the two dimensions together in her new collection. Her closing poems return us to the spiritual world of nature that has always been close to her heart.

“In this inspiring collection, Lynne Wycherley paints pictures with words that capture the exquisite connections among living creatures and the dangers posed by the unprecedented rising sea of radiofrequency radiation” Dr Devra Davis, Nobel laureate, President, Environmental Health Trust

“Wycherley is a real Renaissance woman… She has the courage to ask the questions we should all be asking” Dr Olle Johansson, Professor Emeritus, Karolinska Institute

5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by EMF Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them – Prof Martin L Pall

May 17, 2018

Written and Compiled by Martin L. Pall, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University


We know that there is a massive literature, providing a high level of scientific certainty, for each of eight pathophysiological effects caused by non-thermal microwave frequency EMF exposures. This is shown in from 12 to 35 reviews on each specific effect, with each review listed in Chapter 1, providing a substantial body of evidence on the existence of each effect. Such EMFs:

  1. Attack our nervous systems including our brains leading to widespread
    neurological/neuropsychiatric effects and possibly many other effects. This nervoussystem attack is of great concern.
  2. Attack our endocrine (that is hormonal) systems. In this context, the main things that make us functionally different from single celled creatures are our nervous system and our endocrine systems – even a simple planaria worm needs both of these. Thus the consequences of the disruption of these two regulatory systems is immense, such that it is a travesty to ignore these findings.
  3. Produce oxidative stress and free radical damage, which have central roles in essentially all chronic diseases.
  4. Attack the DNA of our cells, producing single strand and double strand breaks in cellular DNA and oxidized bases in our cellular DNA. These in turn produce cancer and also mutations in germ line cells which produce mutations in future generations.
  5. Produce elevated levels of apoptosis (programmed cell death), events especially
    important in causing both neurodegenerative diseases and infertility.
  6. Lower male and female fertility, lower sex hormones, lower libido and increased levels of spontaneous abortion and, as already stated, attack the DNA in sperm cells.
  7. Produce excessive intracellular calcium [Ca2+]i and excessive calcium signaling.
  8. Attack the cells of our bodies to cause cancer. Such attacks are thought to act via 15 different mechanisms during cancer causation.

There is also a substantial literature showing that EMFs also cause other effects including life threatening cardiac effects (Chapter 3). In addition substantial evidence suggests EMF causation of very early onset dementias, including Alzheimer’s, digital and other types of dementias (Chapter 3); and there is evidence that EMF exposures in utero and shortly after birth can cause ADHD and autism (Chapter 5).

Each of these effects is produced via the main mechanism of action of microwave/lower frequency EMFs, activation of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) (Chapter 2). Each of them is produced via what are called downstream effects of VGCC activation. It follows from this that we have a good understanding not only that these effects occur, but also how they can occur. The extraordinary sensitivity of the VGCC voltage sensor to the forces of the EMFs tells us that the current safety guidelines allow us to be exposed to EMF levels that are something like 7.2 million times too high. That sensitivity is predicted by the physics. Therefore, the physics
and the biology are each pointing to the same mechanism of action of non-thermal EMFs.

The different effects produced are obviously very deep concerns. They become much deeper and become existential threats when one considers that several of these effects are both cumulative and eventually irreversible. There is substantial evidence for the cumulative nature and eventual irreversibility of the neurological/neuropsychiatric effects, of the reproductive effects, the mutational DNA effects, the cardiac effects, of some but not other of the hormonal effects (Chapter 3); any causation of ADHD and autism may add additional concerns (here the cumulative nature is probably limited to the perinatal period). When we know that sperm counts have dropped by more than 50% throughout the technologically advanced countries on earth, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the vast majority of the population in those countries is already substantially impacted. The same conclusion can be made based on the widespread nature of the neuropsychiatric effects in those countries. Both of those effects will get much much worse even with no increase in current exposures, due to the cumulative nature and irreversibility of these effects. I expect we will see crash in human reproduction almost to zero as happened in the Magras and Xenos mouse study which I estimate to occur within about 5 years, without any increases in our exposures. Obviously 4G and 5G will make the situation much worse. Similarly I expect that the deterioration in brain function that we are already seeing will seal our fate if we fail to act rapidly and vigorously. Our collective brain function may become
completely incapable of dealing with such a mega-crisis situation….  READ FULL DOCUMENT HERE
