  • “The exposure modulation and levels were designed by the IT’IS Foundation in collaboration with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences  to mimic a cell phone user’s exposure in the environment for these two systems and to expose all of the animal tissues as uniformly as possible; the highest level of exposure investigated was at dosimetric levels as high as the thermal response of the animal permitted. As a result, local exposures were higher than the typical human exposure, yet the overall exposure remained within normal levels – a fact that was repeatedly reported wrongly in many news outlets. “
