Parents, Neighbors, and Students Against Cell Towers on School Property
Calming Behavior in Children with Autism and ADHD
The Autism EMF Protocol
US standards were developed 30 years ago, do NOT apply to long term exposure, are NOT protective of children and are NOT "safe"?
Would we buy a car with all these problems?
Why FCC Standards Do Not Protect Our Kids.
"Children are not little adults
and are disproportionately impacted by all environmental exposures,
including cell phone radiation.
Current FCC standards do not account for the unique
vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children."
"As a research scientist and physician who studies how microwave radiation affects the outcomes of pregnancy, I am deeply concerned about growing exposures to cell phone and other wireless radiation."
- Dr. Hugh Taylor, Chief of Obstetrics at Yale
Cell Tower Radiation is not Safe.
Dr. Samet was the Chair of the World Health Organization’s EMF Working Group when they made the 2B carcinogenic classification.
"Safety is not assured."

SAFETY ZONE DETERMINATION FOR WIRELESS CELLULAR TOWER Nyakyi et al, Tanzania (2013): This research looked at the radiation that cell towers emit and states at safety zone is needed around the towers to ensure safe sleeping areas. The authors state that "respective authorities should ensure that people reside far from the tower by 120m or more depending on the power transmitted to avoid severe health effect."
"Neurobehavioral effects among inhabitants around mobile phone base stations," Neurotoxicology, G. Abdel-Rassoul, et al., (2007) "Conclusions and recommendations: Inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations are at risk for developing neuropsychiatric problems and some changes in the performance of neurobehavioral functions either by facilitation or inhibition. So, revision of standard guidelines for public exposure to RER from mobile phone base station antennas and using of NBTB for regular assessment and early detection of biological effects among inhabitants around the stations are recommended."
Long-term exposure to microwave radiation provokes cancer growth: evidences from radars and mobile communication systems. Yakymenko I 2011We conclude that recent data strongly point to the need for re-elaboration of the current safety limits for non-ionizing radiation using recently obtained knowledge. We also emphasize that the everyday exposure of both occupational and general public to MW radiation should be regulated based on a precautionary principles which imply maximum restriction of excessive exposure.
A cross-sectional case control study on genetic damage in individuals residing in the vicinity of a mobile phone base station.Ghandi et al, 2014 (India): This cross-sectional case control study on genetic damage in individuals living near cell towers found genetic damage parameters of DNA were significantly elevated. The authors state, " The genetic damage evident in the participants of this study needs to be addressed against future disease-risk, which in addition to neurodegenerative disorders, may lead to cancer."
Mortality by neoplasia and cellular telephone base stations. Dode et al., 2011 (Brazil): Aclearly elevated relative risk of cancer mortality at residential distances of 500 meters or less from cell phone transmission towers.
Investigation on the health of people living near mobile telephone relay stations: Incidence according to distance and sexSantini et al, 2002 (France): 530 people living near mobile phone masts reported more symptoms of headache, sleep disturbance, discomfort, irritability, depression, memory loss and concentration problems the closer they lived to the mast. This first study on symptoms experienced by people living in vicinity of base stations shows that, in view of radioprotection, minimal distance of people from cellular phone base stations should not be < 300 m.
The Microwave Syndrome: A preliminary Study. Navarro E, 2003 (Spain): Statistically significant positive exposure-response associations between field intensity and fatigue, irritability, headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, sleeping disorder, depressive tendency, feeling of discomfort, difficulty in concentration, loss of memory, visual disorder, dizziness and cardiovascular problems. Two different exposure groups also showed an increase of the declared severity in the group with the higher exposure.
Bortkiewicz et al, 2004 (Poland):Residents close to mobile phone masts reported: more incidences of circulatory problems, sleep disturbances, irritability, depression, blurred vision and concentration difficulties the nearer they lived to the mast.
Wolf et al, 2004 (Israel): A four-fold increase in the incidence of cancer among residents living within 300m radius of a mobile phone mast for between three and seven years was detected.
Eger et al, 2004 (Germany): A three-fold increase in the incidence of malignant tumours was found after five years’ exposure in people living within 400m radius of a mobile phone mast.
Hutter et al, 2006 (Austria): A significant correlation between measured power density and headaches, fatigue, and difficulty in concentration in 365 subjects.
Abdel-Rassoul et al, 2007 (Egypt): Residents living beneath and opposite a long established mobile phone mast reported significantly higher occurrences of headaches, memory changes, dizziness, tremors, depressive symptoms and sleep disturbance than a control group.
Oberfeld et al, 2008 (Austria): All subjects reported various symptoms during exposure including buzzing in the head, heart palpitations, unwellness, lightheadedness, anxiety, breathlessness, respiratory problems, nervousness, agitation, headache, tinnitus, heat sensation, and depression.

Damage to the Brain!
This means means that chemicals and toxins are more easily absorbed into the brain and this can result in brain damage.
A recent policy paper by Human Rights Experts argues that cell towers placed near schools and child care centers is an environmental pollution that poses a long-term threat to a child’s rights to life and is therefore- an international human rights violation.
All persons have a right to health, including a safe environment and protection from exposures that may undermine their health. For infants and children, who can not act on their own behalf, a special obligation is incurred.
Current RF Radiation guidelines for risk assessment do not address children. This is a human rights issue for children who cannot advocate for themselves.
Juhi is former Miss India and a Bollywood Actress who is also a leading advocate for cell tower safety after she found herself living across from cell towers.
Many are concerned.
The Precautionary Principle
Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation.

Position on Cell Towers
"The IAFF opposes the use of fire stations as base stations for towers and/or antennas for the conduction of cell phone transmissions until a study with the highest scientific merit and integrity on health effects of exposure to low-intensity RF/MW radiation is conducted and it is proven that such sitings are not hazardous to the health of our members."

" The evidence has increased.
I think this is an important opportunity we have
to protect the public."
Briefing by Dr. Dart and Dr. Pall
Why We Have Concerns:
Cell phone towers emit very low level microwaves, also called radio frequency RF radiation, a form of electromagnetic radiation EMF. Studies have shown that even at very low levels of this radiation, there is evidence of damage to cell tissue and DNA, and it has been linked to brain tumors, cancer, suppressed immune function, depression, miscarriage, Alzheimer’s disease, and numerous other serious illnesses.
No. It is not scientifically documented to be "SAFE". No medical organization states it is "safe".
