Is Cell Tower Radiation Dangerous?
Cell Phone Tower Exposure Overview
You are exposed to 100 million times more electromagnetic radiation than your grandparents were, and part of the reason is radiation from cell phone towers and microwave antennas.
Human population centers are flooded with massive amounts of powerful wireless microwave radiation. Cell phone towers emit high-frequency radio waves, or microwaves, that can travel as far as 45 miles over level terrain. The closer you are, the greater the danger.
The microwaves from cell phone towers can interfere with your body’s own EMFs, causing a variety of potential health problems, including:
- Memory loss
- Cardiovascular stress
- Low sperm count
- Birth defects
A Closer Look at Cell Tower Exposure
Cell towers (or cell sites) that hold antennas and other communications equipment flood the area for miles around with powerful high frequency radio waves (known as microwaves) to support the use of cellphones as well as Wi-Fi, WiMax, Wireless LANs, 802.11 networks, Bluetooth supported devices and more.
Cell tower microwaves might travel for as few as two miles in hilly areas, and up to 45 miles where there are fewer obstructions; and of course, they easily penetrate brick and metal
Radio masts - Smaller versions of cell towers, often seen on rooftops and billboards, typically installed 800-1300 feet apart.
Mobile towers - Sometimes installed on the tops of buildings. Mobile towers are especially dangerous because they emit microwaves at a frequency of 1900 MHz. Recent studies have shown that the intense radioactivity from mobile phone towers adversely impacts every biological organism within one square kilometer.
Cellphone tower microwaves have a significantly higher frequency than even radio waves. The higher the frequency, the more powerful the wave—and the more powerful effect on biological organisms (recall that a mobile tower emit microwaves at 1900 MHz).
