    A high exposure to radiation similar to those emitted by cell phones create tumors for the male rats, but not for the “ratte” potatoes, and mice, according to a study published Friday by a u.s. government agency, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

    This research indicates that male rats have developed a particular form of heart tumour when they are exposed to prolonged radiation of frequencies higher than the allowable standards for human activities. The rats, males and females also had a higher incidence of cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart muscle.

    “The levels and durations of exposure to radiation from radio frequencies were much larger than what people are experiencing even at maximum use levels of the cell, and the whole body of the rodents tested was exposed to,” explained the scientist who oversaw the research, John Bucher, by issuing a press release.

    In an interview with the NBC network, it has not shown up worried for the health of those who use the cell phone.

    “Our reports (of research) don’t go much farther than those that have been made previously. I have not changed the way I use my cell phone and I don’t recommended to my children to do it, ” said Mr. Bucher.

    In a statement following the publication of this research, the director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States, Jeffrey Shuren, recalled that the scientific data collected so far do not let fear for the health of the users of cell.

    Dr. Shuren also noted that despite the use of increasingly widespread and frequent in the cell, the diagnoses of brain cancer were not increased.

    “According to information we have, we believe that the current restrictions to ensure the safety related to the use of cell phones are acceptable to protect the health of people “, concluded Mr. Shuren in a statement released Friday.
