Well increased cases of Brain Tumors, Cancer, Migraines, Joint Pain, Sever headaches, Stress, Eye problems, Memory Loss, Impaired Immune System & more disorders, well you are thinking how come our generation has the best quality life style ever and still having all this health issues unlike our grandsters who lived life without even heading to a hospital, well there is a Silent Killer close to houses, offices & even schools & Hospitals which are slowly & steadily killing you in pieces. Yes, they are called Cell Phone Towers, well if anyone doesn’t how it looks like here is a picture of the same…
Well I think even the wild mushrooms will not grow so faster these days but there is no scarcity of this death machines lurking and growing on your neighbour buildings by the time you get out of your sleep, such is the greed of quick money making & carelessness of others health & the society around them.
I will explain you much simple words exposure to 1 cell phone tower within 50 meters close to your house or office is like sitting in a microwave oven for about 2 hours every day, well you know your chicken or that tasty meal will get char coaled by that time then imagine your brain cells or immunity with exposure to such harmful radiations emitted from this deadly Mobile towers on a day to day basis.
Here is a story of two of who have been diagnosed with brain cancer after three towers were installed next to their upscale C-scheme neighborhood in Jaipur. Since then, illnesses, both minor and major, have become a part of their lives and the lives of the 50 other families in their neighbourhood.
It has proven one of the major reason of Brain tumours & Cancers is exposure to Carcogenic radiation and there are few who complain I never smoked or drunk my whole life i was having a life style but still I am pron to cacncer well you know whom to blame the deadly killers hanging around your locality. A complete study of the hazards of Mobile towers is available @ (If your intrested in wordly matters) http://www.ee.iitb.ac.in/~mwave/GK-cell-tower-rad-report-DOT-Dec2010.pdf
A number of independent health and government authorities have commented on this important study & hazards of this deadly killer. In 2006 a large Danish study about the connection between mobile phone use and cancer incidence was published. It followed over 420,000 Danish citizens for 20 years and showed no increased risk of cancer. A number of independent health and government authorities have commented on this important study including The Australian Centre for Radiofrequency Bioeffects Research (ACRBR) which said in a statement that an increased risk of brain cancer is established from the data from Interphone
“Even with cellphone use, benign swelling in the brain and head, hearing disorders, headaches and anxiety neurosis are well established,” said Dr Sameer Kaul, cancer surgeon, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi India
The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) says radiation from cellphone handsets and towers is “possibly carcinogenic to humans” and may cause glioma, a type of brain cancer. Towers are more dangerous than handsets because they emit greater-intensity radiation 24X7.
“The area of concern is base-stations and their antennas, which provide the link to and from cellphones. This is because, in contrast to handsets, it (RF) is emitted continuously and is more powerful at close quarters, These microwaves might travel for as few as 2 miles in hilly areas, and up to 45 miles where there are fewer obstructions, and of course, they easily penetrate brick and metal.
The human body itself is electromagnetic (at a very low level—around 10 hertz). It’s been shown that each one of our cells has its own electromagnetic field (EMF). Maintaining balance in those cellular EMFs is critical to staying healthy. Decades of studies have demonstrated that artificial frequencies higher than 10 hertz can create stress and serious health problems. Cellphone tower wavelengths, microwaves have a significantly higher frequency than even radio waves. The higher the frequency, the more powerful the wave—and the more powerful effect on biological organisms.
EMF Exposure Health Effects
- And more
Cell Tower Radiation Has Been Linked To:
- Memory loss
- Low sperm count
- Cancer, birth defects
- Heart conditions
After 20 minutes of using cell phones, you feel a warm sensation near the ear. This is because the temperature of the earlobes increases by one degree Celsius. A maximum of 6 minutes of cell phone usage is recommended during the day since a cell phone transmits 1 to 2 watts of power, which are very high and dangerous. Till 2009, India had no standards. India adopted the radiation norms specified by ICNIRP in 2009, which are now outdated as they were only intended to protect people against short-term gross heating effects and not ‘biological’ effects such as cancers and genetic damage from long-term exposure.
Also, these safety standards are based on 6 minutes per day exposure, without accounting for people who live close to cell towers 24/7. The norms allow EMF of 4,500 mw/m2.
How can exposure be reduced or what is the solution?
Children below age 5 are the most susceptible to such radiations don’t expose them to such radiations. At first, I would recommend that the amplification of power in the cell towers be reduced by removing the power amplifier or by reducing the gain of the antenna. Reduce the power or remove the tower. By reducing the power, coverage area will be reduced, which can be taken care of by using more cell towers or repeaters or in-building solutions. The height of towers should be increased. All towers in close proximity to schools and hospitals should be checked and removed, if too close. No 2 Cell Phone towers should be within 100 meters radius close to each others, specifically in residential areas, school & Hospitals don’t allow to erect Cell Phone Towers or if already erected complain to your nearby local authorities. Finally only proper rules and regulations set up by the civic body can make a difference from the deathly menace lurking around everywhere.
