Since cell phones began to be used widely, some people have been concerned about the potential for radiofrequency radiation (RFR) from cell phones to cause cancer. The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released the results of a comprehensive review of scientific studies published from January 1, 2008 to May 8, 2018 on RFR and human health effects, looking for any possible causal relationship between RFR and cancer. Their conclusion was that there was no measurable risk:
Based on the FDA’s ongoing evaluation, the available epidemiological and cancer incidence
data continues to support the Agency’s determination that there are no quantifiable adverse
health effects in humans caused by exposures at or under the current cell phone exposure limits.
