Cell Tower Radiation – Is It Strong Enough To Knock You Down?

Here is a letter one of my readers sent me relating his concerns of EMF exposures. Its an eye opening account. The subtle effects of these man made frequencies are well known (on this website at least). But his experience suggests that the effects could be more overt for some people. Here is the letter:

A note to some of my family members,
Having communicated with some of you lately regarding the likely hazards of electro-magnetic radiation from the ubiquitous cell phone towers especially, and other sources as well, below is the link to a good video about the research into these topics. It is about 1 1/2 hours long
I personally have been feeling the effects of living within 300 yards/meters of a cell phone tower which is approximately 75 feet tall with multiple radiation antennas on it. I would not say that I have been debilitated by this one but I often am awakened with high frequencies in my head (for want of any better way to describe them) and sense a warmer than normal body temperature from this radiation. These sensations are not consistent and it is as though the intensity of the radiation varies for unknown reasons to me. Perhaps there are more sources than I am unaware of. Perhaps it depends upon who is using their cell phones and the company that is serving them as well as how far the signal must be sent to the customer which would determine its strength and possibly its frequency.
As I have mentioned to some of you, slightly over a year ago now, I had a unique experience (for me, in this lifetime!) as I was casually walking along in the evening in a large, well-lit parking lot of a local business that was closed for the day, while my good dog was getting some exercise prior to my going to a small meeting with some of my acquaintances. We had been there perhaps 10 or 15 minutes when, ******!… with no warning, I was on my back with no memory of what might have happened, or how I ended up in that position. Neither my head nor arms felt as though they had been impacted from falling backwards, but my main torso seemed somewhat numbed and unusual when I found my dog licking my face probably confused as to why I was lying there. I urged him to move away a bit while I tried to determine whether I might have any internal injuries. I decided to get up within about 5 minutes, and my body gradually seemed to return to normal within a half an hour, and I do not seem to have any ill effects from this experience.
However, I had noticed prior to this, and especially afterwards, that there is a cell phone tower that I estimate approximately 60 feet tall, near the end of the business building, and about 30 meters from where I was standing or walking at the time of the incident.
I cannot say with certainty that the cell tower was responsible for what happened to me but I am telling of this experience, mainly to see, if anyone else has had any similar or comparable experiences, or know anyone who has.
Never before, had I any particular concerns regarding the cell phone towers and related, but I have since read on the “Electric Sense” website about electric charge building up in the human body in various ways, some from free-radical accumulation, but especially from our living in a relative “fog” of electromagmetic radiation from all of the many thousands of these cell phone towers throughout this country alone.
And, relative to this build up of charge, I have read that there are people in business who are producing “earthing shoes” to help to “ground” this charge back to the earth since most of our footwear is insulative instead of conductive. I have noted that Lloyd Burrell, of the website Electric Sense, cautioned one about being too close to a cell phone tower while being too good of a “grounding rod”, so to speak. Being well grounded in a drizzling rain near a cell tower, might be hazardous to one’s health?? Lloyd has stated that going bare-foot is a good way to ground such charge back to earth, though not so convenient for most of us, and, of course, with the above precaution.
I have wondered if some people may have had such experiences as I, alone or with others and assumed that they might have had a stroke or some other sort of attack without considering their proximity to cell phone towers. If there were a quick manner to determine the average (should one call it “normal”?) charge on an individual and then a reasonable range of deviation according to size, body mass, etc., it may be easier to conclude likely causes; and one might even find that there would be an excess residual charge left in the body after such an experience, if it were, in fact, caused by the cell phone tower. Just some thoughts for how to proceed in a relatively un-investigated area, but one that would be advantageous for those in the realm of diagnosing medical and/or biological problems which seem perplexing.
Also, relative to some of the concerns in the video below, I too, have noticed a marked reduction in this area of the bees and birds populations in recent years which will have serious ramifications for us people as well.


Sorry for this being a bit lengthy but I think it is all relevant to the topic at hand.
Thank you.

    This is an odd experience I had a few months ago:
    I have a cell phone but it is always in ‘airplane mode’ and I basically use it as a watch/alarm clock. One morning I knew I was expecting an sms so when I woke up, still lying down, I reached out, picked the phone up, turned off the ‘airplane mode’ and put it back down on the bedside table. As I lay back down again for a snooze I had a very sudden weird spinning sensation and just lay there helplessly wondering what was going on. Then it dawned on me that I had JUST turned on the cell phone, which was about 60 cm from my head, and it was probably making contact with the nearest cell tower. That was the only possible explanation I could think of for the very sudden dizzy spell. I hadn’t put my feet on the ground, and so wasn’t dizzy from suddenly standing up – it was a crazy spinning sensation. Weird.

    Jon Draw,
    You asked: “I cannot say with certainty that the cell tower was responsible for what happened to me but I am telling of this experience, mainly to see, if anyone else has had any similar or comparable experiences, or know anyone who has.”
    Yes. In fact this just happened to me on 02/15/2013 whilst at hospital for examination. I was forced to go to hospital due to an intractable skin rash. Skin rash is one of the many maladies caused by EM radiation sickness.
    I was sitting in an exam room with a number of electronic machines, as well as a lap-top with wi-fi open and running. When I stood to walk across the room, I simply crumpled to the floor, and had no use of anything from the neck down. When I tried to get up, I had no feeling or control of my legs. I was lifted into a wheel chair, and moved to an EMF free ‘procedure’ room.
    It took about 45 minutes to regain proper heart rate, breath rate, and control of major body functions.
    I am certainly not an invalid by choice, and hiked nearly 1,000 miles of remote forest last year, in an attempt to stay out of EM radiation fields. I am now confined to my sheilded apartment, and my life has become a prison. All so utility companies can continue to lie and profit from those lies, and people can talk nonsense on their plastic cell phones.

    Dear Llloyd,
    I experience vertigo when exposed to very high levels of microwave radiation. Found an interesting article on a neurology website about this. http://www.brainandspine.org.uk/forum/index.php/topic%2C14.0.html
    But what happens when you read the advice given to ”Sarah”? http://www.brainandspine.org.uk/forum/index.php/topic,74.0.html
    As far as I can see, no mention of microwave radiation and nothing that I can see that would allow a member of the public to put forward a suggestion about the link.
    Interesting example of how much some authorities still have to learn.
    Keep up the good work
    Best wishes,

    Hello Sharon. This first link expresses just one of many known effects of EM radiaton exposure.


    The brain and spine article you cited, does not address the EM radiation issue, because the majority of people in the medical professions are completely misinformed regarding EM effects in biological cells. Articles like this should be required reading. >


    I have hundreds of such studies, yet the medical profession keeps ignoring the facts, keeps pushing worthless and inappropriate pills, or treating electrosensitives like laboratory rats.


    Readers should (seriously) observe effects occuring in the thalamocortical system, limbic system, and systemic shifts in levels of acetylcholine. All these phenomena are DIRECTLY caused by EM radiation exposures.

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for your useful links. I personally find some of these links abit hard to understand as I did not do much biology or physics in school. But I think it is great that you posted them as I am sure other contributors to Lloyd’s website will have a better knowledge of the areas they describe. They remind me of some very technical information included in the Dec 2012 issue of the magazine produced for members of the Swedish Association for the Electro Hypersensitive http://www.feb.nu.
    In it the chairman of the Association, Per Segerbäck, gave a link to what he sees as being the most important research of the past 25 years into the biological effects of radiation. http://www.pnas.org/CONTENT/109/30/12022 The document linked to was not easy to understand, but Per gave a short and simple summary in the magazine. Here is a translation of what he said
    ” cell membrane may contain small magnets that move according to an external magnetic field. Movements in the cell membrane can affect the flow of charged particles in and out of the affected cells, thus providing biological effects. Researchers found this” compass needle” in the nose of rainbow trout. It is likely that many animals have similar structures’
    Maybe this echoes some of the findings in the links which you give?
    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Lloyd,
    I have been emailing Ofcom recently to find out where I can get better maps of mobile phone mast locations in countryside areas in Britain. A spokesperson at Ofcom told me that the current maps are ample for showing one’s ”local” area.
    But I strongly disagree.
    The areas offered by the maps at present show only a radius of approx. 2 kilometres. A restriction of ”local
    area” to 1 or 2 kilometres may be appropriate for city residents
    but hardly appropriate to people in country areas, where masts are much more spread out and the
    option of being able to see an area with a radius of 5-10 kilometres
    would, therefore, be more logical Trying to get proper overviews of local country
    areas by using Ofcom maps is terribly
    frustrating, as one has to constantly zoom out to find out where
    exactly one is in relation to the nearest town, and then zoom back in
    again to see where on earth that mast was again!

    Lloyd, do you happen to know where one can find maps that give a better overview?
    All the best,

  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Sharon
    To my knowledge Ofcom is the only Internet database for mobile phone base stations in the UK – perhaps someone else knows different?

  • Sharon Ingram said,

    Thanks, Lloyd. Ofcom did eventually say to me that they themselves did not know of any other way members of the public could get maps.
    So I guess they themselves do have better maps with much wider overviews, but we are not allowed access to them!
    Does not sound very democratic or transparent.

    Coincidentally, talking about undemocractic behaviour, I noticed on the website for citizens against mobile masts in France (www.robindestoits.org) that masts in France have been put up during the night – another way of disguising from citiznes what exactly is going on. See video at:

    ”L’installation, c’est passée dans la nuit, Donc ils sont venus, on peut dire ca, comme des voleurs”.
    trans:”The mast was put up in the middle of the night. They acted like they were thieves”

    Great blogg, Lloyd. I especially like the way you give room for so many different topics of discussion. Keep up the good work!
    Best wishes,

    Hello Sharon,
    Thanks again for your comments on this site. I can understand why many people have difficulty with technical language, yet feel it is important for everyone to try and undersatand how complex our technology has become. In short: Our technology has become an enormous threat to all biological life, and we need to scale back in ALL technical fields involving the use of electricity and communications devices. If we fail to address this very imminent threat, we will certainly become extinct within the next generation.
    This is a very concise video done by Dr. Martin Blank, which explains issues related to DNA strand breaks and mutations caused by EM radiation.
    It is vitally important that everyone understands that these DNA damages are occuring in our forests, lakes, rivers, insects, birds, food sources, pets, and children.

    It sounds like you had a seizure. My grandfather is electrically sensitive, and when he’s had too uch exposure he has a grand mal seizure. Then when it’s over he asks what he’s doing laying on the floor.
