Effects of cell phone radiation on health still not clear after two more research studies

Two new studies investigating the effects of radiation emitted by cell phones on health have been made public. However, the research, performed on animals, gave sometime puzzling results and it didn’t resolve the old debate about the issue. Phones emit non-ionizing radiation, similar to the one produced by a microwave and scientists have not managed to conclusively link it to health problems. The study showed that male rats exposed to radiation had a higher risk of developing tumors, but they also lived longer. However, the sometimes-counterintuitive results are very important and provide the foundations for the next step in this line of research.
