Cell Phone Towers / Antennas harm health with dangerous levels of Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR).

Cell Tower Health Hazard Alert – January, 2010 Update

Cell tower installation planned by T-Mobile at Walt Whitman High School, Bethesda, MD

The T-Mobile tower will be 120 feet tall, rising above the tree top level, and will be approximately 400 feet from homes on Clearwood Road.  According to the plans in the MC PTSA Cell Tower Report, T-Mobile will rent out 3 additional antennas, which will further increase the RFR levels

Check Outwww.BioInitiative.Org (published August 2007) for peer-reviewed, published studies on the non-thermal bio-effects of wireless emissions.

“Studies link cell tower radiation to learning difficulties, leukemia, eye tumors, diabetes, brain tumors, fatigue, headache, damage to blood-brain barrier, DNA strand breaks, chromosome aberrations, sleep disorders, early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, autism, and cancer at EMF/RFR levels hundreds or even thousands of times below limits currently established by the FCC. The lowest limits are in Salzburg Austria at the BioInitiative recommended exposure level of 0.1 umW/cm2.  In the U.S. it is 1000 uW/cm2.

STAND UP FOR THE HEALTH OF THE WALT WHITMAN COMMUNITY.

Concerns about Cell Tower Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR)

“Radio frequencies emitted from mobile telephone towers will have deleterious medical effects to people within the near vicinity according to a large body of scientific literature. Babies and children will be particularly sensitive to the mutagenic and carcinogenic effects of the radio frequency radiation.  It is therefore criminal to place one of these aerials on or near a school.”  Helen Caldicott, MD, pediatrician and co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility

“The FCCs current exposure guidelines…are thermally based, and do not apply to chronic, non-thermal exposure situations…. Therefore, the generalization that the guidelines protect human beings from harm by any or all mechanisms is not justified.” Norbert Hankin, Radiation Protection Division, EPA

Palm Beach, Florida, Los Angeles, California, and New Zealand prohibit cell phone towers and antennas on school property due to safety concerns. The European Parliament recommends that cell towers should not be sited near schools. The National Academy of Science called for more research on risks on long-term exposure to children and pregnant women.

The European voted to recommend precautions be taken to protect human health with regard to wireless technologies, such as mobile phones, Wi-Fi/Wi-Max, Bluetooth, DECT portable phones and cell towers. That certain establishments be kept free of wireless radiation, including schools, day care centers, retirement homes and health care institutions;

January 2008 National Academy of Science Report Identification of Research Needs Relating to Potential Biological or Adverse Health Effects of Wireless Communication Deviceshttp://www.nap.edu/catalog/12036.html

The National Research Council (NRC), an arm of the National Academy of Science issued a report saying that we don’t know enough about the potential health risks of long-term exposure to RF energy from cell phones, cell towers, television towers, and other components of our communications system. The scientists emphasized the unknown risks to the health of children, pregnant women, and fetuses as well as of workers whose jobs entail high exposure to RF (radiofrequency)
