The US National Toxicology Program, a federal interagency group under the NIH, is said to have

linked radiation from cell phone exposure to cancer in rats in a new study. The researchers exposed

rodents for two years (apparently, a rodents’s life span) to radiation levels designed to roughly match

what a human with heavy cell phone use or exposure might experience. The study results are a long

way from determining if the results of the experiments would be the same if the subjects were

humans. We wonder if the danger to humans will be more or less than the dangers of using a cell

phone while driving (or walking). In any event, if cell phone usage is a work requirement for a

particular injured worker who develops cancer, or gets hit by a bus while distracted by his phone,

there may be some workers’ compensation claims filed.
