New Study: Cell-phone Radiofrequency Radiation Could Enhance Head and Neck Cancer

Share

A recent study has found cell-phone radiofrequency could enhance head and neck cancer by stimulating biological processes that promote cancer development. The study entitled “Effect of cell-phone radiofrequency on angiogenesis and cell invasion in human head and neck cancer cells” was published May 13, 2018. The study concludes that, “our data revealed that cell-phone radiofrequency promotes angiogenesis of the CAM. In addition, the cell phone enhances cell invasion and colony formation of human head and neck cancer cells; this is accompanied by a downregulation of E-cadherin expression. More significantly, we found that the cell phone can activate Erk1/Erk2 in our experimental models.”

In the video clip below, a 36 year old testifies against small cell deployment to the Santa Rosa Council meeting.and shares his personal story of developing a cancerous tumor in his neck after twenty years of cell phone use. The type of tumor he developed was a schwannoma, the same type of tumor that rats developed in two largescale studies that looked at long term exposure to cell phone radiation – the Ramazzini Insititute Study and the National Toxicology Program StudyWatch the full Santa Rosa Council meeting here.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Today, the cell phone is the most widespread technology globally. However, the outcome of cell-phone radiofrequency on head and neck cancer progression has not yet been explored.

METHODS: The chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) and human head and neck cancer cell lines, FaDu and SCC25, were used to explore the outcome of cell-phone radiofrequency on angiogenesis, cell invasion, and colony formation of head and neck cancer cells, respectively. Western blot analysis was used to investigate the impact of the cell phone on the regulation of E-cadherin and Erk1/Erk2 genes.

RESULTS: Our data revealed that cell-phone radiofrequency promotes angiogenesis of the CAM. In addition, the cell phone enhances cell invasion and colony formation of human head and neck cancer cells; this is accompanied by a downregulation of E-cadherin expression. More significantly, we found that the cell phone can activate Erk1/Erk2 in our experimental models.

CONCLUSION: Our investigation reveals that cell-phone radiofrequency could enhance head and neck cancer by stimulating angiogenesis and cell invasion via Erk1/Erk2 activation.
