The level of exposure to the general public, even for those living in close proximity to a cell tower, is at least 50 times lower (usually thousands of times lower) than established safety limits. The following is a quote from the WHO Fact Sheet on cellular base stations: “”Recent surveys have shown that the RF exposures from base stations range from 0.002% to 2% of the levels of international exposure guidelines, depending on a variety of factors such as the proximity to the antenna and the surrounding environment.
This is lower or comparable to RF exposures from radio or television broadcast transmitters.”” To be exposed to the established safety limits, one would need to climb the cell tower and stand within a few feet of the antenna. See the following extract from FCC OET Bulletin 56. Note that the existing exposure limits already have a safety factor of 50 for the general public.
