Will NIEHS Ever “Get” EMFs?

Most managers at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) refuse to allow that the EMF­cancer playbook may be different from the one for chemicals. Even now, when there is ample evidence that power line EMFs can increase the risk of childhood leukemia and there is a growing
suspicion that cell phone radiation is associated with three different types of tumors, NIEHS prefers to look the other way. The institute has long resisted endorsing precautionary policies for any kind of EMFs.

The latest case in point involves John Bucher, a senior NIEHS official who runs the National Toxicology Program (NTP). During his 27-year career at NTP/NIEHS, Bucher has evaluated the dangers of any number of chemicals. He
is currently taking the lead on BPA, the controversial plastic additive, as well as radiation from cell phones.

In a story featured on the front pages of North Carolina’s leading newspapers earlier this month, Bucher declared that he doesn’t believe that cell phones can cause cancer. “I anticipate either no correlation or, if anything is seen at all, it won’t be a strong signal,” he said. Bucher was referring to a massive NTP project designed to see whether long-term exposure to cell phone radiation can cause cancer in rats and mice. It is the largest single cancer study ever undertaken by the NTP/NIEHS with a budget of $25 million, maybe more. NIEHS spent ten years planning the project.
