Cell Tower Radiation Cancers Of The Prostate, Pancreas, Bowel, Skin Melanoma, Lung And Blood Were All Increased
Looking at only the first 5 years, there was no significant increased risk of getting cancer in the inner area. However, for the period 1999 to 2004, the risk for getting cancer was 3.4 times greater in the inner area compared to the outer area. Breast cancer topped the list, and the average age of contracting this disease was considerably lower, 50.8 years compared to 69.9 years in the outer area, but cancers of the prostate, pancreas, bowel, skin melanoma, lung and blood cancer were all increased
• Mumbai facing Radiation
Cell Tower Radiation: LiveIndia.com (05.8.2008) A recent study revealed that the electromagnetic radiations emitted from phone towers in Mumbai were way beyond safety levels. According to the study, the safe limit of radiations for human beings is up to 50 µW/m microwatts per square meter and the upper limit is 100 microwatts per square meter. The study revealed that the radiation readings in several residential areas were more than 1000 microwatts per square meters.
Mumbai has witnessed a spurt in the number of phone towers in the recent past exposing people to dangerously high levels of radiations. Being exposed to such radiation, this leads to problems like loss of appetite, irritation, fatigue, difficulty in concentrating, headaches, problems in vision, infertility and deformity of foetus. Medical experts feel it is a ‘slow and invisible killer’.
“If you are using a headset or hands free close to your ear while talking or put it in the pockets, the radiation is directly affecting this tissue and because it is heating up, even though very minimally, the cellular tissue is being heated,” said Dr Pratima Rajan, Department of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Preventive Cardiology, Jaslok Hospital.
So while technology invasion has happened at a rapid pace in India, stringent laws are still to be in place against the risks that they come with.
