I saw this earlier.

The study's authors cautioned that one should not draw the conclusion that cell phone radiation increases this breed of lab rat's life span.

Correlation is not causation. It's all economics. The rats who can afford to use cell phones so often obviously are more healthy to start with.

However they were more likely to be murdered by rats trained to be wait staff.

Probably because they couldn't get out of the contract any sooner

Ok, so cell phone radiation didn't necessarily make the rats live longer, but can we say that it clearly didn't kill them sooner?

Or are they shrodingers rats and are both dead and alive?

There's a "fight the cell phone tower at <local church>!" thread on my Nextdoor neighborhood this information will be perfect for.
