Would anyone be crazy enough defeat microwave oven interlock switches, put their head in the oven and press COOK? Not likely. What would happen? Since the body is composed of about 80% electrically conductive salt water, it won’t be pleasant. Lenses in both eyes will be the first to go, as both of them will rapidly cloud over with serious cataracts and the vitreous humor in both eyes would start to boil, causing permanent blindness.

All this will happen in a matter of seconds. And this is only the beginning of the agony. This damage would quickly be followed by searing internal heating inside the skull, creating unimaginable pain. Death would be sure to follow after untold agony.

Remember that new area denial toy the pentagon has which creates a burning sensation in crowds so severe that no reporter could stand it for more than a few seconds? Now imagine this happening INSIDE your head from exposure to 700 watt microwave oven power levels, as a long and agonizing death would follow.

About forty years ago, a man innocently walked briefly past a telephone microwave dish located on the roof of a tall building in Rochester, NY. He died an agonizing death just a few days later in the hospital from massive organ failure.

Although his exposure was only a fraction of a typical microwave oven, it was only about twenty times the radiation of a cell phone.

Property values have also been known to drop once a cell tower is erected, due to the perceived risk of negative health effects. Cellular phone frequencies have also seriously disrupted local emergency and law enforcement radio communications.

Massachusetts lawyer Mark Berthiaume, opposing placement of a cell phone tower, said “Municipalities …. are being bullied every day by providers of wireless telephone service who use their financial clout and the federal (law) to intimidate the communities into allowing them to place large towers in inappropriate locations.” 17

Some Questions and Answers

But don’t we need and depend on cell phones?

Of course. No one is saying not to have cell phones and towers, but to make them safer. If Austria can have levels 10,000 times more protective, then so can we. It is just more expensive to the companies. Also, we don’t have to let these cell towers go anywhere and everywhere the industry wants them. We can require that they erect the minimum number required to provide adequate coverage, and be put in the safest places possible.

Why don’t we just oppose the construction of cell towers in our county?

In a strategic move, the cell phone industry has tried to make it illegal for citizens to oppose the towers based on health concerns. In the Telecommunications Act of 1996, state and local rights were seriously limited with regard to opposing towers based on health concerns. The constitutionality of this Act has been challenged in the Supreme Court, and a long legal battle is sure to follow. But it will take years, while the public continues to be exposed to chronic, cumulative radiation with each new cell tower.

So what CAN we do?

The Telecommunications Act prevents citizens from opposing the towers based on concerns about RF emissions, but we can oppose them on numerous other valid grounds. There are still rights we and our local elected officials maintain, that allow us local control of the number, size and placement of cell towers, while still providing for adequate cell phone coverage. Numerous communities have called for moratoriums on tower construction, allowing them needed time to study the issue, and enact strict ordinances that require the industry to respect community desires, such as building the minimum towers necessary, in appropriate locations. During these moratoriums, communities are preparing non-industry biased studies of cell phone tower need, and creating cell tower Master Plans, to help protect the rights and health of citizens, while complying with the law. 18, 19, 20

Siting of cellular towers is an important function of our elected officials. Protection of citizens’ health and property rights should be foremost in the responsibilities of local government. We urge our elected officials to protect the health and welfare of the citizens who live here, rather than big-money interests with profit as their bottom line.

Dr. Neil Cherry, Ph.D. biophysicist from New Zealand, reports that “there is no safe level of ER radiation.” Dr. Cherry wrote a 120-page review of 188 scientific studies. He said the standards are based on thermal effects, but important non-thermal effects also take place, such as cell death and DNA breakdown. “The electromagnetic radiation causes cells to change in a way that makes them cancer forming.” It can increase the risk of cancer two to five times, he said. “To claim there is no adverse effect from phone towers flies in the face of a large body of evidence.”

“To claim there is no adverse effect from phone towers flies in the face of a large body of evidence.” Dr. Neil Cherry, biophysicist Public health officials caution that we err on the side of conservatism, given the massive public health risk that is possible. Other federal health agencies disagree that safe levels of exposure have been identified, much less built into the FCC standard. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not agree with the FCC standards, and analysts have recommended that EMR be classified as a “probable human carcinogen”. 12

Deputy Director of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, Elizabeth Jacobsen, has stated that the safety of RF “has not been established nor has the necessary research been conducted to test it”, and cites risk of brain cancer, tumors and DNA breakdown. The California Public Utility Commission has urged the cell phone industry to not locate towers near schools or hospitals. And the World Health Organization reports “many epidemiological studies have addressed possible links between exposure to RF fields and excess risk of cancer. These studies do not provide enough information to allow a proper evaluation of human cancer risk from RF exposure because the results of these studies are inconsistent.”

“The safety of RF has not been established, nor has the necessary research been conducted to test it.” Elizabeth Jacobsen, Director, US Dept. of Health “Our bodies are exquisitely sensitive to subtle electromagnetic harmonics, and we depend upon tiny electrical impulses to conduct complex life processes,” says Dr. Robert Becker, author of The Body Electric, and Cross Currents, The Perils of Electropollution. 13, 14

He says “at the present the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of (these) electromagnetic fields.” Radiation once considered safe, he says, is now correlated with increases in birth defects, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, learning disabilities, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and cancer. The incidence of brain cancer is up 25% since 1973, and this year 185,000 Americans will be diagnosed with brain cancer. Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer death for children and young adults. Yet, the United States has a de facto policy of “post sales surveillance” with respect to RF radiation. Only after years of exposure, will there be studies to characterize the health consequences. It can take 3 to 10 years for health effects to show up. Citizens shouldn’t be forced to act as guinea pigs in a radiation bioeffects experiment.

Some adverse health effects show up immediately, but it can often take 3 to 10 years for the longer term effects of RF illness to appear, such as cancer. Many researchers, public health officials and citizens believe that consumers shouldn’t be forced to act as guinea pigs in a bioeffects experiment for the next 20 years. In short, “we are the experiment”, for health effects.

The current U.S. standard for radiation exposure from cell phone towers is 580-1,000 microwatts per sq. cm. (mW/cm2), among the least protective in the world. More progressive European countries have set standards 100 to 1,000 times lower than the U.S. Compare Australia at 200 microwatts, Russia, Italy, and Toronto, Canada at 10, China at 6, and Switzerland, at 4. In Salzburg, Austria the level is .1 mircowatts (pulsed), 10,000 times less than the U.S. New Zealand has proposed yet more stringent levels, at .02 microwatts, 50,000 times more protective than the U.S. standard. 3, 4
Contrary to what the communications industry tells us, there is vast scientific, epidemiological and medical evidence that confirms that exposure to the RF and microwave radiation emitted from cell towers, even at low levels, can have profound adverse effects on biological systems. 5, 6, 7, 8

There is vast scientific and medical evidence that exposure to cell tower radiation, even at low levels, can have profound adverse effects on biological systems.

Scientists and advocacy groups say that the current FCC “safe” standards are based on 1985 research, and fail to consider more recent research that found brain cancer, memory impairment, DNA breakdown, and neurological problems with RF at much lower levels. The earlier studies considered only the “thermal”, or heating effects of the radiation in other words, the level at which the radiation would heat tissue, or ” cook” a person, in the same exact manner that a microwave oven works. The FCC levels may ensure our tissues are not “cooked”, but they fail to address long-term chronic exposure at low levels, or what is called “non-thermal” effects.

Doctors say that RF radiation is wreaking havoc with normal biological cell functions. “RF alters tissue physiology”, says Dr. George Carlo, an epidemiologist who found genetic damage in a $28 million research program, paid for by the industry. He now fights to have safety levels lowered. 9

Over 100 physicians and scientists at Harvard and Boston University Schools of Public Health have called cellular towers a radiation hazard. Over 100 physicians and scientists at Harvard and Boston University Schools of Public Health have called cellular towers a radiation hazard. And, 33 delegate physicians from 7 countries have declared cell phone towers a “public health emergency”.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is in charge of setting the standards of exposure for the public, and claims that, based on scientific studies, the current levels are safe. But it is not a public health agency, and has been criticized as being “an arm of the industry”. Many who work for the FCC are either past, present or future employees of the very industries they are supposed to regulate. With an explosively emergent $40 billion dollar a year industry at stake, critics have stated “you can bet that their studies are going to show whatever they want them to show.”
Our federal government also once told us that asbestos, cigarettes, thalidomide, and the blood supply were “safe”, but which were later found to be harmful.

With a $40 billion dollar a year industry at stake, ” you can bet that their studies are going to show whatever they want them to show.”

Just why would a cell phone tower be placed on a church, school or fire station? Money. Cell phone companies pay organizations handsomely to install cell tower equipment on these properties. This eliminates the need for the cell phone company to lease or purchase land or buildings to erect their own towers. They can simply rent existing structures from someone else. This “rent money” can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars a month. What school district or church couldn’t use a few extra dollars to benefit a tight budget? But does the income outweigh the potential risk? The studies say absolutely not.

If you are concerned, you may choose to reduce your RF exposure by limiting the length of cell phone calls or using “”hands-free”” devices that keep the cell phone further away from your head and body. Since children are typically more sensitive to many known environmental agents, parents who are concerned about possible long-term risks from RF exposure may wish to take extra precautions by limiting their children’s use of cell phones.

Precautions to limit public exposure to RF energy from base stations are unnecessary because worst-case exposure levels are typically thousands of times below those specified in health-based exposure standards.

The Government of Canada’s Role in Regards to Cell Phones and Base Stations

Cell Phones, Cell Tower Radiation Danger

http://www.emfnews.org/headset.html

Cell phone towers health effects

Health Canada’s role is to protect the health of Canadians, so it is the Department’s responsibility to research and investigate any possible health effects associated with exposure to electromagnetic energy, such as that coming from cell phones and base stations. Health Canada has developed guidelines for safe human exposure to RF energy, which are commonly known as Safety Code 6. Some of these guidelines have been adopted by Industry Canada and are included in their regulatory documents on radiocommunication licensing and operational requirements.

Health Canada’s RF exposure guideline document is one of a series of codes that specify the requirements for the safe use of radiation-emitting devices. It sets out safety requirements for the installation and use of RF devices that operate in the frequency range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz, including cell phones and base stations.

The limits specified in Health Canada’s RF exposure guideline document are based on an ongoing review of published scientific studies on the health impacts of RF energy. Using data from these studies, Health Canada set the general public exposure limits 50 times lower than the threshold for potentially adverse health effects. As long as exposures respect these guidelines, Health Canada has determined that there is no scientific reason to consider cell phone towers dangerous to the public.

Health Canada has conducted its own research to determine whether RF energy could cause damage to DNA or changes to certain genes. The exposure levels used in these studies included those that were well above the limits specified in Health Canada’s RF exposure guidelines. Based on Health Canada’s research, no effects from RF exposure were seen.

Cell phones are regulated by Industry Canada. This Department also oversees the licensing and placement of cell phone towers (base stations), considers the effects on the environment and local land use before towers are installed, and ensures that these towers comply with their regulatory requirements. Industry Canada has adopted part of Health Canada’s RF exposure guidelines for protecting the general public and ensures that exposures from cell phones and cell phone towers do not exceed the specified limits.

Health Canada continues to monitor the science regarding RF exposure. If there is convincing scientific evidence in the future showing that exposure from cell phones and cell phone towers is harmful, Health Canada will take immediate action, such as advising Industry Canada to review its policies and regulations with respect to these devices.

Some of the RF energy emitted by cell phones is absorbed in your body. The amount of energy you absorb depends on many factors, such as how close you hold the cell phone to your body and how strong the signal is. So far, the weight of evidence from animal, cell culture and human studies does not indicate that the energy emitted by cell phones is strong enough to cause serious health effects. Some scientists have reported that cell phone use may cause changes in brain activity, in reaction times, or in the time it takes to fall asleep, but these findings have not yet been confirmed.

Public exposure to RF energy from base stations is at a much lower level than that from cell phones. As long as exposures respect the limits set in Health Canada’s Guidelines, Health Canada has determined that there is no scientific reason to consider base stations dangerous to the public.

Cell phones are designed to operate at the minimum power necessary to connect and maintain a quality call. As a result, the intensity of the RF energy from cell phones is well below a level that would cause health concerns. In addition, cell phones and base stations in Canada must meet regulatory requirements that limit the amount of RF energy they emit. See the section below on “”The Government of Canada’s Role”” for further details.

Although the RF energy from cell phones poses no confirmed health risks, cell phone use is not entirely risk-free. Studies have shown that:

* Using cell phones or other wireless devices can be distracting. Your risk of serious injury may increase if you use these devices while driving, walking, cycling, or doing any other activity that requires concentration for personal safety.
* Cell phones may interfere with medical devices such as cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, and hearing aids.
* Cell phones may also interfere with other sensitive electronic equipment, such as aircraft communication and navigation systems.

The Issue

With the growing popularity of hand-held cellular phones (or cell phones), questions have been raised about the safety of being exposed to the radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic energy they emit. Some members of the public have also expressed concern about the possible health effects caused by living near cellular base stations, which are often called cell phone towers.

Background

Cell phones are portable devices that transmit and receive radio signals from a network of fixed, low-power, base stations. The base stations are usually located on rooftops, towers and utility poles. The transmitting power of a cell phone varies, depending on the type of network and its distance from the base station. The power generally increases the further you move away from the nearest base station.

The number of cell phone users in Canada rose from 100,000 in 1987 to more than 21 million by the end of 2008. To meet the demand for new wireless services, cellular base stations have been put up across the country. Along with the rapid increase in cell phone use, there have also been some alarming media reports and Web sites suggesting there may be a link between certain health problems and cell phone use and/or living near base stations. As a result, some members of the general public are concerned about potential health effects from long-term exposure to RF energy.

The RF electromagnetic energy given off by cell phones and base stations is a type of non-ionizing radiation. It is similar to the type of energy used in AM/FM radio and TV broadcast signals. Unlike ionizing radiation (as emitted by X-ray machines), RF energy from cell phones and other wireless devices cannot break chemical bonds. This means it is unlikely to damage your body’s genetic material.
