Cellphone radiation study finds mixed effects in rodents, without
clear implications for human health.

A senior scientist involved in the 10-year study said, "I have not
changed the way I use a cellphone, no."

The long-awaited results of a $25 million National Institutes of
Health study on the effects of cellphone radio-frequency radiation
exposure on animals is out, and the results are mixed. They showed a
higher risk of tumors, DNA or tissue damage, and lower body weight in
some groups of rodents, but no obvious ill effect in others and no
clear implications for human health.

John Bucher, a senior scientist involved in the 10-year study, was
cautious in his interpretation of the results in a conference call
with journalists Friday. Given the inconsistent pattern of the
findings, the fact that the subjects were rats and mice rather than
people and the high level of radiation used, he said, he could not
extrapolate from the data the potential health effects on humans.
