#Cell Towers and health risks

Banning, limiting and avoiding cellphone towers 

            back to: Practical Advice

1. Established ill health from cellphone towers

Since the 1950s some countries have adopted biological limits. These and others have long-term rather than heating limits to cellphone tower (mobile phone mast) radiation. They also often restrict the towers to locations at least 500 meters from people’s residences.

Other countries, however, have not yet adopted biological limits and still keep to the old 6-minute heating limits proposed in the USA military in the 1950s, declared ‘obsolete’ by the European Union parliament in 2009. The USA’s FCC still has these heating limits, as does the WHO’s ICNIRP, still used by, for instance, the UK. Heating limits, averaged over six minutes, are irrelevant to long-term exposure experienced by residents living near to cellphone towers.

Since heating limits were devised by the FCC and ICNIRP:
  • This cellphone radiation has been classified as a 2B possible carcinogen.
  • 80% of medical studies show increased rates of cancer, up to 4 or 5 times, for residents within 300-400 metres of a tower. 
  • Medical studies show typical electrosensitivity symptoms near towers. 
  • Other studies have associated nearby towers and similar electromagnetic exposure with other neurological illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, ADHD, autism etc. MORE
