Study: Microwave Radiation Similar To The Kind Used In Cellphones Caused Brain Damage in Rats. It's the latest assault on the American love affair with cell phones: A new addition to a mounting pile of evidence suggesting they may pose health risks, reports CBS News Correspondent Elizabeth Lakedin. "Are they safe? No, I don't think we can say that at this time," says Dr. Henry Lai. The new study, conducted by Dr. Lai of the University of Washington, finds microwave radiation similar to the kind used in cell phones caused long-term memory loss in rats. Lai taught lab rats to memorize the route to a platform in a pool, as though they had an internal map. He then exposed them to relatively low doses of radiation and found they were unable to find their way back to the platform.
