When Mom asked me to look into possible health hazards posed by cell phone panel antennas that a church in her neighborhood wants to put up, I expected to find reassuring facts to allay Mom’s concerns. Instead, I found deeply disturbing data that makes me wonder why the public is not being informed about health risks and why our government seems intent on covering up troubling truths.
Cell phone companies and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration assert that cell phone towers don’t pose health risks to the public. Some studies support this assertion, but other studies suggest just the opposite.
Harvard-trained Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona’s medical center recently observed, “In January 2008, the National Research Council (NRC), an arm of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering, issued a report saying that we simply don’t know enough about the potential health risks of long-term exposure to RF energy from cell phones themselves, cell towers, television towers, and other components of our communications system.
The scientists who prepared the report emphasized, in particular, 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) energy. Because so much of cell phone technology is new and evolving, we don’t have data on the consequences of 10, 20 or 30 years worth of exposure to the RF energy they emit,” Weil concluded.
The report called for long-term safety studies on all wireless devices including cell phones, computers, and cell phone towers.
