US Scientist Criticizes ICNIRP’s Refusal to Reassess Cell Phone Radiation Exposure Guidelines after US National Toxicology Program Studies Show Clear Evidence of Cancer in Experimental Animals

US Scientist Criticizes ICNIRP’s Refusal to Reassess Cell Phone Radiation Exposure Guidelines after US National Toxicology Program Studies Show “Clear Evidence of Cancer” in Experimental Animals.

Ronald L. Melnick Ph.D Senior Scientist (retired), National Toxicology Program, NIEHS, NIH has issued this scientific  critique of ICNIRPs dismissal of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) findings. On September 4, 2018 ICNIRP   issued a “Note on Recent Animal Studies” that concluded the 28 million dollar US National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences study did “not provide a reliable basis” for changing the over two decades old ICNIRP guidelines on radiofrequency- cell phones and wireless – radiation. In response, Dr. Ronald Melnick went through the ICNIRP document point by point and presented the data to show the document has “numerous false and misleading statements.”

Peer Reviewed and Published 

The critique below comes directly after Dr. Ron Melnick published a paper documenting the “unfounded criticisms” of the NTP  entitled, “Commentary on the Utility of the National Toxicology Program Study on Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation Data for Assessing Human Health Risks Despite Unfounded Criticisms Aimed at Minimizing the Findings of Adverse Health Effects”  in the peer reviewed journal Environmental Research (Pubmed link, ScienceDirect with Full PDF.)

Two Additional Notes

The Ramazzini Institute Director of Research Dr. Fiorella Belpoggi  also posted comments on the ICNIRP   note stating that, “both NTP and RI studies were well performed, no bias affecting the results. ICNIRP confirms that,” and “We are scientists, our role is to produce solid evidence for hazard and risk assessment. Underestimating the evidence from carcinogen bioassays and delays in regulation have already proven many times to have severe consequences, as in the case of asbestos, smoking and vinyl chloride.” (Ramazzini Institute Statement on ICNIRP Note)

A paper was just published by scientists stating that radio frequency radiation can cause cancer based on the human and animal evidence. The NTP study was highlighted in the research review.  Read it here Cancer Epidemiology Update, following the 2011 IARC Evaluation of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (Monograph 102)” 

Critique of the ICNIRP Note of September 4, 2018 Regarding Recent Animal Carcinogenesis Studies

Ronald L. Melnick Ph.D Senior Scientist (retired), National Toxicology Program, NIEHS, NIH

September 12, 2018


The International Commission of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP, 2018) recently issued a report (dated September 4, 2018) that contains numerous false and misleading statements, particularly those about the toxicology and carcinogenesis studies on cell phone radiofrequency radiation by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP). This flawed analysis by ICNIRP served as the basis for ICNIRP  to support their conclusion that existing radiofrequency exposure guidelines do not need to be revised despite new evidence showing that exposure to cell phone radiofrequency radiation (RFR) causes cancers in experimental animals. ICNIRP also does not take into account evidence on other harmful effects of cellphone radiation including damage to brain DNA, reduced pup birth weights, and decreased sperm quality.

The number of extensive incorrect and misleading statements in this ICNIRP document includes the following:

1) The ICNIRP statement that “the NTP reports have not yet undergone full peer–review” is wrong; the NTP reports on cell phone RFR underwent multiple peer reviews, including an unprecedented 3-day independent review more than five months earlier in March 2018.

2) The ICNIRP statement that many endpoints presented in the NTP reports were not defined “a priori” is also wrong. All of the endpoints presented in the NTP reports were specified in the Statement of Work for the conduct of the NTP studies that was developed during my tenure at NTP.

3) ICNIRP incorrectly states many critical conclusions from the NTP studies (NTP 2018a, 2018b). The peer review panel in March 2018 (NTP 2018c) concluded that there was “clear evidence” of carcinogenic activity for heart schwannomas in male rats exposed to GSM- or CDMA-modulated RFR, “some evidence” of carcinogenic activity for brain gliomas in male rats (both GSM and CDMA), and “equivocal evidence” for heart schwannomas in female rats (both GSM and CDMA). These categories of evidence are defined in all NTP technical reports: some evidence of carcinogenic activity means that the test agent caused an increased incidence in neoplasms, but “the strength of the response was less than that required for clear evidence.” Equivocal evidence of carcinogenicity means that there was “a marginal increase in neoplasms that may be test-agent related.” Therefore, any analysis of the NTP data must include the brain gliomas and the heart schwannomas; the ICNIRP report excluded consideration of the RFR-induced gliomas.

4) The statement by ICNIRP that animals in the NTP study were exposed “over the whole of their lives” is incorrect. Surviving animals were killed at about 110 weeks of age; e.g., more than 70% of mice were still alive at the end of the study (NTP 2018a, 2018b).

5) The ICNIRP report criticized the exposure intensities used in the NTP studies as being “75 times higher than the whole-body exposure limit for the general public” and therefore “not able to inform on mobile-phone radiofrequency exposures.” This issue had been raised before by others and is addressed in my paper (Melnick, 2018):

“While the exposure limit to RFR for the general population in the US is 0.08 W/kg averaged over the whole body, the localized exposure limit is 1.6 W/kg averaged over any one gram of tissue (FCC, 1997); for occupational exposures, the limit is five times higher (0.4 W/kg and 8 W/kg, respectively). Thus, the whole-body exposure levels in the NTP study were higher than the FCC’s whole-body exposure limits (3.8 to 15 times higher than the occupational whole-body exposure limit). Whole-body SAR, however, provides little information about organ-specific exposure levels (IARC, 2013). When an individual uses a cell phone and holds it next to his or her head, body tissues located nearest to the cell phone antenna receive much higher exposures than parts of the body that are located distant from the antenna. Consequently, the localized exposure level is more important for understanding and assessing human health risks from cell phone RFR. When considering organ-specific risk (e.g., risk to the brain) from cell phone RFR, the important measure of potential human exposure is the local SAR value of 1.6 W/kg (the FCC’s SAR limit for portable RF transmitters in the US, FCC 1997) averaged over any gram of tissue. In the NTP study in which animals were exposed to whole-body RFR at SARs of 1.5, 3, and 6.0 W/kg, exposures in the brain were within 10% of the whole-body exposure levels. Consider the converse scenario. If the brain and whole-body exposures were limited to 0.08 W/kg, then localized exposures in humans from use of cell phones held next to the ear could be 20 times greater than exposures to the brain of rats in the NTP study. Under this condition, a negative study would be uninformative for evaluating organ-specific human health risks associated with exposure to RFR. Therefore, exposure intensities in the brains of rats in the NTP study were similar to or only slightly higher than potential, localized human exposures resulting from cell phones held next to the head, and lower than the FCC’s permissible localized limit for occupational exposures.”

6) The claim by ICNIRP that the whole-body exposures in the NTP study can produce adverse health effects is without foundation; the animals tolerated the exposure levels used in the NTP study without significant effects on body temperature, body weights, or induction of tissue damage (NTP 2018a, 2018b). The current RF exposure guidelines from the Federal Communication Commission, which are similar to those of ICNIRP, are based on a whole-body SAR of 4 W/kg, in order to ‘protect’ against adverse effects that might occur due to increases in tissue or body temperature of 1OC or higher from acute exposures. The whole-body exposure limit of 0.4 W/kg SAR for occupational exposures and 0.08 W/kg SAR for the general public is based simply on dividing the 4W/kg value by 10 for occupational exposures and by 50 for the general public, while the exposure guideline limit for localized exposures in the US is 1.6 W/kg averaged over any one gram of tissue for the general population and 8 W/kg for occupational exposures (FCC, 1997) is based simply on multiplying the whole-body exposure limits by 20. For localized exposures, the ICNIRP guideline is 2 W/kg averaged over any 10 grams of contiguous tissue for the general population, and 10 W/kg for occupational exposures.  The NTP thermal pilot study showed that rats and mice could maintain body temperatures within 1OC at 6 W/kg and 10 W/kg, respectively (Wyde et al., 2018). Thus, the exposures used in the NTP study are consistent with FCC and ICNIRP guidelines that limit whole body exposures to levels that do not cause any significant temperature increase. The 10x or 50x uncertainty factors applied to the 4 W/kg SAR are aimed at minimizing potential acute thermal effects, but do not address health risks from non-thermal or minimally thermal exposures. The ICNIRP report also criticized the use of subcutaneously implanted transponders to monitor the effects of RF exposure on core body temperature; however, Kort et al. (1998) showed that temperature changes recorded by the subcutaneous transponders did not differ significantly from rectal temperature measurements in rats or mice.

7) Criticism by ICNIRP concerning the consistency between the NTP studies (NTP 2018a) and the Ramazzini study (Falcioni et al., 2018) is disingenuous. The fact that both studies carried out in independent laboratories in Italy and the U.S. found increased incidences of heart schwannomas and Schwann cell hyperplasias in Sprague-Dawley rats under different exposure environments and different RF intensity levels is  remarkable. Without knowledge or analysis of the true dose-response relationship between RFR exposure and the induction of schwannomas and Schwann cell hyperplasias of the heart, it is unreasonable to expect a linear dose-response by combining data from these two separate studies.

8) The discussion by ICNIRP concerning the “expected ratio’” of about 30% for schwannomas to hyperplasias is based on the paper by Novilla et al., 1991, and is a misrepresentation of the data and its relevance to the NTP study on cell phone RFR. In the Novilla paper, there were zero hyperplasias and zero schwannomas among 100 male Sprague-Dawley rats (there was one hyperplasia and one schwannoma in female Sprague Dawley rats). Most of the spontaneous hyperplasias and schwannomas reported in that paper were observed in Wistar rats (ratio ~ 3). However, even if there had been a difference in the ratio of spontaneous hyperplasias to schwannomas in that study, it still would not reflect the impact of cell phone RFR on that ratio. The fact that Novilla et al. did not see either hyperplasias or schwannomas in male Sprague-Dawley rats lends further credibility to the absence of these lesions in the NTP study in Sprague-Dawley rats and the increased incidences of schwannomas in exposed rats being due to the exposures to cell phone RFR.

9) It is noteworthy that ICNIRP cites two reviews that conclude there is no association between RFR and acoustic neuromas, while ignoring any mention of the IARC monograph (IARC, 2013) that reported positive associations between RFR from cell phone and glioma and acoustic neuroma in humans.

10) The issue raised by ICNIRP on the lack of cardiac schwannomas in control male rats in the NTP study and the expected incidence (0-2%) based on historical control rates had been raised before by others and is addressed in my paper (Melnick, 2018) for both schwannomas and gliomas:

“Gliomas and schwannomas of the heart are uncommon tumors that occur rarely in control Sprague-Dawley rats. It is not unusual to observe a zero incidence of uncommon tumors in groups of 50-90 control rats. In experimental carcinogenicity studies, the most important control group is the concurrent control group. As mentioned above, the uniquely designed reverberation chambers used in the NTP study were fully shielded from external EMFs, and the lighting source was incandescent instead of fluorescent light bulbs. The housing of rats in the RFR shielded reverberation chambers could affect tumor rates in control animals. No data are available on expected tumor rates in control rats of the same strain (Hsd: Sprague Dawley rats) held under these specific environmental conditions. Thus, historical control data from previous NTP studies are not reliably informative for comparison to the results obtained in the cell phone RFR study.”

11) The hypothetical argument raised by ICNIRP about the effect of one additional schwannoma in the control group is nonsense; one must analyze the available data rather than inserting arbitrary values to downplay the significance of a true response.

12) The discussion in the ICNIRP concerning survival differences between controls and exposure groups affecting the relative tumor response had been raised before by others and is addressed in my paper (Melnick, 2018)

“This comment is an inaccurate portrayal and interpretation of the data for at least two reasons: (1) there was no statistical difference in survival between control male rats and the exposure group with the highest rate of gliomas and heart schwannomas (CDMA-exposed male rats, SAR = 6.0 W/kg), and (2) no glial cell hyperplasias (potential precancerous lesions) or heart schwannomas were observed in any control rat, even though glial cell hyperplasia was detected in exposed rats as early at week 58 of the 2-year study and heart schwannoma was detected as early as week 70 in exposed rats. Thus, survival was sufficient to detect tumors or pre-cancerous lesions in the brain and heart of control rats.”

13) The issue in the ICNIRP report about the need for blind pathology to avoid biases related to exposure status is discussed in my paper (Melnick, 2018).

“The reviews of the histopathology slides and final diagnoses of lesions in the RFR studies by the pathology working groups were conducted similar to all other NTP studies in that the pathologists did not know whether the slides they were examining came from an exposed or an unexposed animal (Maronpot and Boorman, 1982). In fact, the reviewing pathologists didn’t even know that the test agent was RFR. For anyone questioning the diagnosis of any tissue in this study, all of the slides are available for examination at the NTP archives.”

Also, the designations ‘test agent A’ and ‘test agent B’ refer to the separate studies of GSM and CDMA exposures and not to exposure status within a study. Therefore, these designations would not “result in bias because perceived patterns within a group’s samples can affect how subsequent samples are evaluated.”

14) The issue of multiple comparisons leading to possible false positives (with a probability of 0.5) was addressed by the NTP in its release of the partial findings of the RFR study (NTP, 2016):

“Although the NTP conducts statistical tests on multiple cancer endpoints in any given study, numerous authors have shown that the study-wide false positive rate does not greatly exceed 0.05 (Fears et al., 1977; Haseman,1983; Office of Science and Technology Policy,1985; Haseman, 1990; Haseman and Elwell, 1996; Lin and Rahman, 1998; Rahman and Lin, 2008; Kissling et al., 2014). One reason for this is that NTP’s carcinogenicity decisions are not based solely on statistics and in many instances statistically significant findings are not concluded to be due to the test agent. Many factors go in to this determination including whether there were pre-neoplastic lesions, whether there was a dose-response relationship, biological plausibility, background rates and variability of the tumor, etc. Additionally, with rare tumors especially, the actual false positive rate of each individual test is well below 0.05, due to the discrete nature of the data, so the cumulative false positive rate from many such tests is less than a person would expect by multiplying 0.05 by the number of tests conducted (Fears et al., 1977; Haseman, 1983; Kissling et al., 2015).”

15) The conclusion in the ICNIRP report that the NTP study is not consistent with the RFR cancer literature is wrong, and the claim by ICNIRP that epidemiological studies have not found evidence for cardiac schwannomas neglects to note that no studies of cell phone users have examined relationships between RFR exposure to the heart and risk of cardiac schwannomas. While it is true that the NTP did not report an increase in vestibular schwannomas in rats, it must be recognized that the vestibular nerve was not examined microscopically.  The NTP findings of significantly increased incidences and/or trends for gliomas and glial cell hyperplasias in the brain and schwannomas and Schwann cell hyperplasias in the heart of exposed male rats are most important because the IARC classified RFR as a “possible human carcinogen” based largely on increased risks of gliomas and acoustic neuromas (which are Schwann cell tumors on the acoustic nerve) among long term users of cell phones. The concordance between rats and humans in cell type affected by RFR is remarkable and strengthens the animal-to-human association.


Based on numerous incorrect and misleading claims, the ICNIRP report concludes that “these studies (NTP and Ramazzini) do not provide a reliable basis for revising the existing radiofrequency exposure guidelines.” The data on gliomas of the brain and schwannomas of the heart induced by cell phone radiation are suitable for conducting a quantitative risk assessment and subsequent re-evaluation of health-based exposure limits. The ‘P’ in ICNIRP stands for Protection. One must wonder who this commission is trying to protect – evidently, it is not public health.

Good morning dear friends of the European Alliance Stop 5G

I inform you that the video of the stop 5G international conference held in Switzerland where you can see and hear the speech in English, Italian and German language of friends of Austria (Claire Edwards former UN and activist of the International Appeal Stop 5G From Earth and Space), Germany, Denmark and Italy. A 30-minute video of the entire conference will be released shortly, with translations in Spanish, French, German and English.

The Swiss conference has made it official that by 2019 the study on the biological effects of 5G will begin and an Italian body (The Municipality of Trento) has just approved the allocation of 30,000 euros for an independent study on the effects of 5G.

We have created a page on the Italian Stop 5G Alliance page on the European Stop 5G Alliance. It would be appropriate for each of you to do the same on your own website.

I remind you that on August 1, 2019 the STOP 5G DISCONNESSI DAY – EUROPEAN DAY OF DIGITAL SCIOPERO returns, which we will replicate every first round of the month in Europe to spread awareness of the risks of Wireless. I attach poster in Italian, you can also make one in your own language.

We are waiting for Germany to come up with the proposal for a citizen of Europe initiative to start collecting 1 million signatures to ask the European Parliament to stop 5G, in the meantime we are in contact with some MEPs from different groups politicians from Strasbourg are against 5G. We keep you updated on developments.

A warm greeting

Kind regards

Maurizio Martucci

A Request From Claire Edwards

Dear friends

I am writing an article documenting the pushback against 5G in 2019 as an update to my article earlier this year entitled “5G The Dominoes are Starting to Fall’
In order to describe the worldwide pushback in 2019 as comprehensively as I can, I am writing to ask if you know of any relevant significant actions in your country (or in another) that I can include. I have a lot of information on what is happening in the USA, France, Italy, Russia and Switzerland, but nothing or not so much from elsewhere, even from the UK.  I have nothing on Spain or Canada or Australia or from Asia or Africa or South America, for example (yes, I know – huge gaps!).  I am not listing conferences or demonstrations organised by citizens, but only the following (or similar):
  • Comments or actions made/taken by politicians, doctors’ associations, local or national government or telco executives
  • Discussions or debates in your national parliament or on television or radio where officials of telcos or of government or doctors’ associations made significant negative comments about 5G
  • Citizen attacks on 5G infrastructure
  • Court cases relevant to 5G or EHS
  • Legal opinions provided (I have one from Denmark and one from Switzerland)
  • Laws to curtail 5G either proposed or passed
  • Official reports expressing concern about 5G
  • Anything else that you consider may be of major significance
If you can help me with one or two links to what you consider for 2019 are the most relevant and significant videos, articles, programes, parliamentary debates or other, in your language but providing a brief description of what it is in English, I would be very grateful.  I hope to publish the article as soon as possible.
Many thanks for your assistance.

Take Action Tuesday – the DIGIT Act – Steamrolling on 5G!

The Senate and Big Wireless Are Ready to Steamroll on 5G.

Who: U. S. Senate Commerce Committee
What: Hearing on S1611 – the “Developing Innovation and Internet of Things” (“DIGIT”) Act.
When: Wednesday, July 10th, 10:00 am
The Digit Act sets up a working group and steering committee within government that identifies and addresses any regulations, programs, or agency barriers to the deployment of 5G and the Internet of Things. Read the bill here.

In advance of the hearing, we’re asking you to call the offices of Senator John Thune and Senator Brian Schatz, co-chairs of the Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet.
Senator Thune: (202) 224-2321
Senator Schatz: (202) 224-3934

(see script ideas below)

If your own senator sits on the Commerce Committee, please call him/her as well. We must keep the pressure on our elected officials to do what’s right and protect public health before corporate profit.
Sample Script
(Try to get as much of this in as you can before they stop you!)Hello, I’m calling to voice strong opposition to S1611, the DIGIT ACT, because of the scientifically proven health effects associated with long-term exposure to wireless radiation emitted by “small cell” antennas located close to homes, apartments, schools and businesses, which are required for the deployment of 5G.

The Senator needs to be aware of the honest science, not just take the word of telecom companies that there is no risk to the public from 24/7 exposure to wireless radiation.

Fiber-optic cable is much faster, more reliable, secure and completely safe. We don’t need, or want, powerful 5G wireless antennas going up in our neighborhoods, and the Senator should not be voting to use taxpayer dollars to promote the interests of the telecom industry over the well-being and security of the American people!

Thank you.

Thanks to your enthusiastic support, we are making progress informing the public about 5G and other wireless technologies, creating a wave of public opinion that is more powerful than the giant telecom industry.

Thanks for all you are doing!

Measuring Microwave Radiation Levels at Microwave Oven – LIVE – 1 of 2

A visual to demonstrate microwave radiation.

Part 2: Measuring EMF from WiFi Router

This is the same that emits from wireless devices.

For comparison purposes, the Building Biology precautionary guidelines show levels in excess of 1000 microWatts per square meter to be in the “extreme concern” category, you will see that levels measured here reach the max on the EMF meter which is 100 times this level! While there are thousands of peer-reviewed, published, scientific studies showing harm to all living beings on the planet – especially to our children, I invite you to consider how a potato cooks inside a microwave oven… The water molecules inside the potato are agitated or “excited” and the heat that is generated cooks it from the inside out. Now consider this: we are made up mostly water. Children hold more water than adults and absorb up to 10x the amount of radiation than adults. SO, think about how your children are being zapped inside their classrooms from all the microwave devices inside (commercial-grade routers, laptops, iPads, white boards, VR headsets, and the load increases if cell phones are allowed inside the classroom). The radiation is cumulative – causes DNA damage and permeates developing blood-brain barriers and thinner skulls in children.

Girls are born with all the eggs they will ever have. The radiation passes through the child and into the eggs as well.

Boys are impacted when they have laptops on their laps, and anyone who may carry cell phones in pockets and when cell phones are held to head, the brain is being irradiated as well – the thyroid is impacted too.

AT&T Fires Up Sweat-Inducing 5G

AT&T Fires Up Sweat-Inducing 5G in “Sin City” With Plans for 20 More Despite Anticipating More Lawsuits


JUNE 30, 2019
Last February, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they could NOT provide any studies that prove that 5G technology is safe.  Unfortunately, plenty of research already proves it isn’t (see 1, 2, 3).

Not only that – cybersecurity experts, (see 1, 2), environmentalists (see 1, 2, 3) meteorologists, NASA, NOAA, the U.S. Navy, and utility companies have ALL warned that installing 5G everywhere could lead to widespread catastrophic events.

Regardless, AT&T is introducing 5G in more U.S. cities despite this  as well as growing 5G opposition and that Americans ARE NOT signing up for it where it’s already been installed.

Even ballsier, the company is doing this while fighting current lawsuits AND they are anticipating more lawsuits will follow.  Of course, all telecom companies have been anticipating lawsuits for awhile now.

Now back to 5G in Vegas:

AT&T’s 5G network is continuing to grow, though it still remains limited to business users.

On Thursday the wireless carrier announced that it has turned on 5G in Las Vegas, its twentieth city to get its 5G mmWave network (what AT&T calls “5G+”).


At twenty live cities, AT&T has grown a sizeable, early lead on Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprintthough all three rival carriers either have launched consumer 5G networks or plan to do so this week.

It is bonkers crazy, and some elected officials are still endorsing 5G and forcing installation on Americans even when few residents are signing up for it.
