Cell Towers, Disease, and
Cancer Clusters. Cause to be Concerned? You Decide!
clusters of cancer and other major sicknesses have been
discovered around mobile phone masts, raising issues over
the technology's potential effect on health. Studies of the
sites show high incidences of cancer, brain haemorrhages and
raised blood pressure inside a radius of four hundred yards
of mobile telephone masts. One of the studies, in
Warwickshire, showed a cluster of 31 cancers around a single
street. 1 / 4 of the thirty workers at a special faculty
close to the 90ft high mast have developed tumours since two
thousand, while another quarter have suffered important
The mast is being pulled down by the mobile telephone after
the display of the evidenceoperator O2 by local
demonstrators. While rejecting any links to ill-health, O2
admitted the choice was obviously rare and surprising.
Telephone masts have incited protests through Britain with
thousands of folk objecting every week to planning
are roughly 47,000 masts in the United Kingdom. Dr John
Hiker , a scientist who assembled the cluster studies with
aid from local campaigners in Devon, Lincolnshire,
Staffordshire and the West Midlands, said that he was
convinced they showed a potential link between the angle of
the beam of radiation emitted from the masts' antennae and
diseases discovered in local populations.
should be moved away from conurbations and colleges and the
power turned down, he revealed. Some scientists already
believe such a link exists and studies in other EU states
suggest a rise in cancers close to masts. In 2005 Sir
William Stewart, CEO of the Health Protection Agency,
claimed he found 4 such studies to be or worry but the
health risk stayed unproven.
