Is cell phone radiation really causing cancer?

Cell phone radiation is not like radiation from a nuclear explosion. This is called "ionizing" radiation - this radiation can destroy your DNA, researchers have determined this will lead to cancer. The energy emitted by the phone is much lower (below visible light) and is considered "non-ionizing." We know that non-ionizing radiation does not damage DNA like ionizing radiation. But the question is still whether it can still affect the body in other ways.

In order to understand the relationship between mobile phones and cancer, the foreign media The Verge reporter spoke with Jonathan Samet, president of the Colorado School of Public Health and telephone radiation expert who led a working group on WHO-related projects. In 2011, the World Health Organization considered mobile phone radiation "possibly carcinogenic." Samet now says that the evidence in any direction is still uncertain, and there are "some signs" of risk.

Another large study published more details. These studies revealed high levels of cell phone radiation in rats and mice. Although there are still deviations in the results of the study, the latest evidence has not found a direct link between cell phone radiation and cancer. In response, the FDA stated: "Together, all of these studies ... have convinced us that the current safety limits of cell phone radiation are still acceptable to protect public health."
