Gro Harlem Brundtland was the head of the World Health Organization (WHO). Mrs. Brundtland is a medical doctor and was the former Prime Minister of Norway. In March of 2002, she reported to the Norwegian press that cell phones were banned from her office because she became ill if an active cell phone was brought within thirteen feet of her. Her concerns were published by one Norwegian newspaper, and ignored by every other newspaper in the world. Five months later she stepped down from her leadership post of the World Health Organization after just one term. It could be that she was forced to resign because of publicly exposing the ill effects that cell phones have on some people.

As technology advances there is more and more radiation around us. It is now being termed by some as “electronic smog.” There’s a new type of “allergy” that appeared because of our technological advances. An increasing number of people are becoming sick from the “electronic smog” around us. These people suffer from symptoms like nausea, dizziness, and depression. They experience difficulty in sleeping and concentrating when electromagnetic devices are brought into close proximity. Some have been so badly affected that they had to relocate to less electronically polluted environments. http://plans-cell-phone.zerocreditcards.org/our-electromagnetic-world/

The only country that currently recognizes electromagnetic sensitivity as a real medical condition is Sweden. There, government support is available to sufferers. Elsewhere, since this illness is contrary to the interests of large telecommunications companies, it is often trivialized.

Man made electromagnetic waves have been around for over one hundred years. Radio and TV towers that were present for the last century emit electromagnetic radiation similar to cell phone towers. There has always been controversy about illnesses caused to people living close to radio towers. There were only thousands of radio towers scattered throughout the country, but with cell towers there are hundreds of thousands of towers and the numbers keep climbing. There are hundreds of millions of gadgets using and creating electromagnetic energy including cell phones, computers, gps devices, satellites and all types of two way radios. It is estimated that for the average city dweller “electronic smog” has increased a thousand fold within the last fifteen years.

In Chicago, where I live, the city notifies neighborhood residents whenever a parking lot is being put up to give them the opportunity to debate the issue. But cell towers seem to sprout out of nowhere and without warning. There is a 1996 US Federal law that prevents communities from stopping the construction of cell towers based on health concerns. Not only are cell towers placed next to homes, some are being built right on top of apartment buildings and other public buildings where people work or reside.

The mayor of Chicago wants to bridge the “digital divide” by creating internet access anywhere in the city using wireless technology that could be picked up by specially enabled laptop computers. This technology is called wireless fidelity or “Wi-Fi.” For this to happen, electromagnetic radiation would have to blanket the city.

The “digital divide” is a term used to describe the lack of internet access for the poor as opposed to those that can afford it. The poor are generally also poorly educated. People with limited education tend to use the internet for entertainment rather than as an educational tool. They download music and videos, gossip in chat rooms, and surf porn sites. It would be easier for child predators and other scammers to remain anonymous using this technology. So what the mayor wants to do is fry everyone’s brains so it would be easier to keep the masses entertained and make it harder to identify crooks and perverts. Many other cities are also planning to invest in “Wi-Fi” for similar reasons. What about the people that are already sensitive to this technology?

I guess they’ll have to find someplace else to live.
Currently laptops with “Wi-Fi” cost more than desktop computers. An organization called OLPC (One Laptop per Child) plans to make hundred dollar laptops with built in “Wi-Fi.” These computers would initially be sold to governments of China, India, Brazil, Argentina, Egypt, Nigeria, and Thailand. They, in turn, would pass them on to school children in selected cities. This idea assumes that saturating their cities with electromagnetic radiation to access the internet and implement wireless networking will present no health effects. What if “electronic smog” makes some of their children ill? Many researchers say that children are more vulnerable to electromagnetic radiation than adults.

Inevitably, these laptops will be commercialized and sold to the poorer citizens of the more developed countries throughout the world. As we can see, to bridge the “digital divide” plans are being made to flood the world with electromagnetic radiation and cheap laptops.
Experts all over the world are voicing concerns about the health hazards of electromagnetic radiation even at low levels. Some are saying that there could be cumulative effects from this radiation and we may not know the damage it causes for years. We’re already saturated with cell towers, with more popping up like weeds. With the planned additions of “Wi-Fi”, people are becoming guinea pigs in a world-wide experiment.

In time, many of us that currently show no symptoms could develop electromagnetic sensitivity or other technology related illnesses. It is almost impossible to shield our homes from this type of radiation. As greedy corporate aliens saturate our world with “electronic smog” to realize ever increasing profits from modern technologies, what will happen to us, the inhabitants of our electromagnetic world?

16 NOVEMBER 2011

Out of many global explosions in the recent past, the bloom of cell phone industry has superseded all. Today there are a whopping 5.3 billion mobile subscribers worldwide which constitutes 77 percent of the world population. India had 890.2 million mobile phone subscribers at the end of Aug 2011, and is expected to have the world’s largest subscribers (around1.159 billion) by 2013. Cell phone has had major impact on our day-to-day life including tourism, travel, business, banking and healthcare. http://www.greaterkashmir.com/news/2011/Nov/16/a-human-and-environmental-disaster-in-the-waiting–30.asp

Mobile phone, a sort of complex small radio imbedded with mini transmitter, transmit radiofrequency-waves (RF-waves) when powered on. These waves are captured by nearest tower (base-station) and thus cell phone when turned on is “always online” to receive calls and texts. The term cellular phone is derived from the “cell” principle of radio transmission. Each base station provides a single “cell” or radio-signal-span-radius. Combining all of these signals in a location makes it appear as cellular compartments. Therefore, when you change your location, you go out of a single cell and enter a new one.

When a person makes a cell phone call, a signal is sent from the phone’s antenna to the nearest base-station antenna. The base-station responds to this signal by assigning it an available RF-channel. RF-waves transfer the voice information to the base-station. The voice signals are then sent to a switching center, which transfers the call to its destination. Voice signals are then relayed back and forth during the call.

RF-waves (450-2700MHz; 0.1-2W) are electromagnetic fields and unlike ionizing radiation (X-rays, gamma-rays) can neither break chemical bonds nor cause ionization in the human body. Tissue heating is the principal mechanism of interaction between RF energy and the human body. WHO/IARC has classified RF waves as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). By definition Group 2B carcinogen is an agent possibly carcinogenic to humans or for which there is limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans.

Towers (base-stations) may be free standing or mounted on existing structures. Guidelines (The Environment Protection Act, 1986) for erecting towers include: base structure should be 50 to 200 feet high so that antennas can adequately cover the area; first preference to erect tower should be given to forest areas or open or public places away from residential locality; towers should not occupy premises of schools or hospitals or narrow lanes and not directly facing any building.

In case of multiple antennas, sharing of the facility should be explored. Access to tower should be prohibited: “Danger! RF-radiation, Restricted area”. If above guidelines are followed human exposure to RF-waves from towers is minimal. The energy from a tower antenna is directed toward the horizon (parallel to the ground), with some downward scatter. The amount of energy decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the antenna. As a result, the level of exposure to RF-waves at ground level is very low compared to the level close to the antenna.

Problem arises when the above guidelines are flouted. Often we see towers erected on roof tops, compounds, schools, hospitals, and trees, water tanks, within narrow lanes, inside crowded residential areas, chimneys, church steeples and flagpoles; all for monetary gains. Under such circumstances it is impossible to protect general public from RF-radiation exposure. However cell phone industry for several reasons stresses that the exposure to RF-waves, even under these circumstances is negligible. Even the Federal Communications Commission believes that RF-radiation from antennas result in exposure levels on the grounds that are typically thousands of times below safety limits. Therefore, there is no reason to believe that such towers could constitute a potential health hazard to nearby residents or students. Most experts question the validity of these explanations and would like the guidelines for erecting base stations to be implemented.

The current US standard for cell site radiation in the US is 580-1000 microwatts-per-square-centimeter. Many other countries have set levels hundreds of times lower. The reason for the disparity is that no one really knows what level of cell tower radiation is safe. Current limits have been influenced more by economic and political imperatives than by research into health and safety. More important than the intensity of radiation emitted at the tower is the strength of the resulting radiation wherever people live and work. This depends on the intensity at the source – and one’s distance from it. Different cell sites emit different amounts of radiation. Radiation levels from a single cell site vary, depending on usage. Even maintenance issues can affect how much radiation a cell site is currently producing.

Measurement with a suitable meter is the only way to know how much radiation you are receiving at a particular spot. If you detect >100 mv/m in place of your work or residence, you should be concerned. If you cannot obtain a meter, tower distance of 400 meters or more from your residence or work is probably not harmful to you.

What are the possible harmful effects of RF waves emitted by the base stations? Most of the literature driven by powerful industry on this subject state that there is no evidence that RF-waves from towers is harmful to human health and there is no published convincing evidence that this leads to any form of human cancer. They often refer amongst other to a British study on more than 1000 families which found no link between mother’s exposure to towers during pregnancy and risk of childhood cancers.

In contrast, over 100 scientists and physicians at Boston and Harvard University’s Schools of Public Health have called cell phone towers a potential radiation hazard. Experts believe that individuals differ in their response to similar levels of RF-radiation. For some people, short term effects from tower radiation exposure may include headaches, sleep disorders, poor memory, mental excitation, confusion, anxiety, depression, appetite disturbance and listlessness.

In September of 2010, 10-member committee under Bombay-Natural-History-Society (BNHS) studied the impact of towers and reviewed 919 studies performed in India and abroad; 593 showed negative impact on birds, bees, humans, wildlife and plants. They pinpointed cell phone towers as a potential cause for decline of animal populations. Committee stressed an urgent need to focus more scientific attention on the subject before it was too late.

A study into the effects of a cell tower on a herd of dairy cattle conducted in Germany showed a measurable drop in milk yield. Relocating the cattle restored the milk yield and moving them back to the original pasture recreated the problem. A human study (Kempten West) in 2007 found substantial adverse effects on many hormones in persons exposed to tower radiation.

A German study on 1000 residents living within 400 meters of towers for over 10 years found prevalence of cancer 3 times higher than the control group. Breast cancer topped the list, but cancers of the prostate, pancreas, bowel, skin melanoma, lung and blood cancer were all increased. Another study from Israel found 8 cancers in 622 residents who lived within 350 meters of a cell phone tower as against 2 cancers in 1222 control patients who lived further away. In a case known as “Towers-of-Doom”, two cell masts on a five story apartment building in London caused many health problems in residents especially those living in top floors and seven detectable cancers.

I have carefully reviewed the scientific contents of the above anecdotal reports published on the safety and/or harmful effects of cell phone towers on humans and environment. One is struck with the paucity (in amount) as well as poverty (in quality) of published literature on this vital subject. Very few studies have specifically concentrated on cancer risk from cell phone towers. This lack of studies is in itself a cause for concern, especially since anecdotal evidence is plentiful. This is because of major conflict of interest by the industry. Funding agencies of future projects are the very organizations that would be at disadvantage if definite link between cell phone towers and human and environment effects are found and that is the reason this research is going at a snail’s pace.

Consequence to this, I was not convinced by either of these studies to state that cell phone towers are safe or harmful. Thus the slogan: “Cell phone towers, as distributed now, are potential and hidden human and environmental disaster in the waiting” shall need much more scientific data to prove or disprove it. Till then most exposed to RF-radiation shall have to pass through a painful wait!
