So Why are People Concerned About Cell Phone Towers? September 20, 2006

“Three reasons for this concern are recognized:
Some people don’t trust the cell phone companies or the government to act with the public’s best interest in mind.
Many people equate the potential adverse health effects of cell phone use with the presence of cell phone towers. In reality, the energy that one is exposed to while holding a cell phone to the head is around 100 times greater than one is exposed to in the vicinity of a cell tower.
The existing exposure limitations are based primarily on the avoidance of energy deposition in the body sufficient to cause heating of tissue. A growing body of research data indicates that some types of radio frequency fields influence cellular function through mechanisms that do not involve heating. Thus, the exposure limitations may be based upon incomplete science, and therefore not fully protective.”
