Like mushrooms, cell phone towers have been popping up everywhere over the last 3 decades.
These towers are now omnipresent.
Silently doing their job of keeping us connected.
They route our calls, messages, photos and videos via the Internet.
In fractions of a second these cell phone towers execute a very complex process.
But of course there is a downside.
Because these towers, in doing their jobs, radiate our homes, schools, workplaces towns cities and countryside with radio frequency microwave radiation. 24/7.
There are those that claim this radiation is harmless.
There are others that claim that these exposures are highly detrimental to our health.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
But there are a growing number of eminent scientists and researchers that are raising the alarm.
One of them is Professor Girish Kumar.
He has a PhD in electrical engineering.
He is a former Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of North Dakota.
He is currently Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at IIT Bombay.
He's been working on hazards of microwave radiation for over a decade.
He’s considered one of the world’s leading experts on cell tower radiation.
Cell Tower Radiation Effects
All cell towers radiate invisible radio frequency microwave radiation.
These exposures have been linked to numerous adverse biological effects including:
- DNA damage
- Effects on Stress proteins
- Blood brain barrier damage
- Calcium ion release from cell membranes
- Risk to children and pregnant women
- Irreversible infertility
- Effects on skin
- Tinnitus and ear damage
- Uveal melanoma
- Weaker bones
- Salivary gland tumor
- Melatonin reduction
- Sleep disorders
- Neurodegenerative diseases
Level Of Exposure
Few people understand the hazards and workings of cell towers like Professor Kumar. There are various factors that come into play, principally:
- radiated power
- pattern of the antenna
The combination of these factors determines your exposure. Your level of exposure determines the health risk.
Thursday, 16th March at 1:00 p.m. EST (10 AM PST or 6 PM GMT) I’m conducting a LIVE interview with Girish Kumar professor of Electrical Engineering Department at I.I.T. Bombay.
Professor Kumar has written more than 270 papers in the international and national journals and conference proceedings. He has written several reports and given presentations at various forums on cell phones and cell tower radiation hazards and solutions.
He is also the author of two books and has filed 5 patents. His latest booked is entitled Report On Cell Tower Radiation.
It's a compilation of over 200 scientific peer reviewed studies on cell phone and cell tower radiation hazards. It also looks at the impact on the environment of cell tower radiation – not only humans but birds like sparrows, insects like butterflies and bees, and plants and animals have been affected by cell tower radiation.
The interview will last approximately one hour and it’s FREE to listen to.
We are going to discuss:
- what are the characteristics of cell towers we need to be aware of?
- what are the maximum permitted transmit power levels in the US?
- how to tell where the maximum radiation of a cell tower antenna is directed – just by looking at it
- what's the safe distance to live from a cell tower?
- what are the solutions for dealing with cell tower radiation?
This interview has now been broadcast.
