Ever wondered where the butterflies, some insects and birds
like sparrows have vanished? Well, your constantly ringing
cell phones could be responsible for this.
A study conducted by three departments of Panjab University
has found that cell phone towers are the dominating source
of electromagnetic radiations in environment in the city and
this could lead to diseases in plants and animals.
The study was conducted by Centre for Environment and
Vocational Studies, Department of Botany and Department of
Zoology from December 2005 to September 2006. Dr V P Sharma,
Dr R K Kohli, Dr H P Singh, Dr D R Batish and Dr Upma Bagai
were involved in the study.
It was found that there are 199 mobile towers in the 52
sectors and industrial areas in the city. Of these, 74 per
cent are present in the Southern sectors and the remaining
in the northern ones. The measurement of radiations was done
at 100 metres, 200 metres and 300 metres with the help of RF
Field Strength Meter at heights ground, 4 feet and 5-6 feet
Dr Kohli says the electromagnetic radiations generate heat.
Due to this, the microorganisms present in the soil near it
would be killed. This in turn harms those organisms which
feed on them. It disturbs the ecological cycle.
The towers continuously transmit radiations even when nobody
is using a cell phone. In the city, the maximum radiation
content was found in Sector 46. It was 97,926 micro
watt/square metre. The minimum of 564 micro watt/square
metre was in Sector 1. Radiations were found to be maximum
at 5-6 feet and minimum at ground level.
Prof Kohli says a petition has been filed by a Gujarat-based
NGO in the Supreme Court, saying the maximum permissible
limit should be less than 10 micro watt/square metre.
Another conclusion of the study is that though the power
density of the electromagnetic radiations is less than the
recommended safe levels, even at this level, diseases can be
