The scientists, one of whom is the former director of the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP), published a preprint review unpacking the latest research on electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and RF radiation. It concludes that there is "substantial scientific evidence" that "RF radiation causes cancer, endocrinological, neurological and other adverse health effects."
The paper also chastises the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for failing to protect public health. In many ways, the FCC has been bought off by the communications industry in much the same way that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have been bought off by the pharmaceutical and vaccine industries.
According to the four scientific experts, the FCC has systematically ignored the "Precautionary Principle" when it comes to cell phone dangers. The Precautionary Principle, in case you are unfamiliar with it, is a set of principles commonly used in toxicology to assess risk.
"This article is a clarion call for prevention and precaution," said Devra Davis, PhD, MPH, a toxicologist and epidemiologist and one of the co-authors of the paper.
"We know enough now to take steps to reduce exposure to this ... It's time," added Davis, who is also the founder and president of the Environmental Health Trust, as well as the founding director of the Center for Environmental Oncology and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.

Davis told The Defender that that there is a "plethora" of experimental and epidemiological evidence that establishes a causal relationship between EMR-RF and cancer. EMR-RF is also linked to DNA damage, adverse fetal development, and damage to the endocrine system.
"EMF-RF functions like a classic endocrine disruptor by impairing both male and female reproductive functions," the authors of the paper say.
As has been stated by senior adviser at the World Health Organization (WHO), if EMF and RF radiation were evaluated based on the latest studies, they would more than likely be upgraded from "probable" human carcinogens to confirmed human carcinogens.
Davis, in speaking about the new research, called it "landmark" in the sense that it comes to solid conclusions about the dangers of EMF-RF radiation – "but the landmark is built on the shoulders of a number of others," she emphasized.
The reason why EMF-RF radiation is still considered "safe" by the authorities is because regulators are relying on "fundamentally flawed," yet widely publicized, reports written by "industry-affiliated scientists" whose job it is to declare "no health risk."
"It is imperative to insist on a complete picture of the evidence and not the whitewashed or distorted version currently promoted," Davis and her colleagues stressed.
The only way to ever learn the truth, in other words, is to separate sound science from the biased telecommunications industry. Until this happens, "we are effectively conducting an uncontrolled experiment on ourselves, our families, and our children," they say.
The FDA is also to blame for dismissing mounds of studies showing adverse effects from RF radiation, including the $30 million NTP study from 2018 which provides "clear evidence" that electromagnetic radiation is associated with cancer and DNA damage.
