Could this cell tower harm me

Hello,

I’m sorry for my poor English!

I live in a house on the second floor. There is a 9-storey building 100 metres from here, with a big cell tower on the roof. It’s even visible from my desk inside.

Here is a picture taken from the window: http://oi67.tinypic.com/2d7soxl.jpg

I called the regulatory agency, they told me I’m safe because the cell tower is in close range to my house and at the same time it’s much higher. But I don’t trust the authorities, we all know why.

Is this something to worry about?

Hi Lyudmil
I suggest that you read some of the material on this site and elsewhere to help you decide how concerned you should be. Here are some ‘starters’
https://www.electricsense.com/13440/cell-tower-radiation-cancer/

Note that cancer is not the only known risk, and may not even be the biggest.
If you decide to go for protection: https://www.electricsense.com/1299/cell-phone-tower-protection-tips-what-to-do-if-a-cell-phone-tower-is-erected-next-to-your-home/
I would be very wary of any advice, official or otherwise, which is not based on real measurements – the radiation can be reflected by buildings in the area, and can create interference patterns, resulting in ‘hot spots’. I have been zapped by a cell tower on top of a tall building within 100 meters, so being below the main beam does not necessarily provide reassurance.
If you do decide to go for protection I would emphasise one or two points:
Get a decent RF meter and measure before and after to make sure you have improved the situation. There are some recommendations on the main site here. You may be able to identify particular areas of the house or directions which need shielding (eg walls and windows facing the cell tower).
If you can, try temporary measures before doing anything permanent like using shielding paint. Putting up aluminium foil at least temporarily can be useful to give an indication whether shielding is likely to be effective
Make sure you eliminate all sources of radiation inside any shielded areas – eg wifi, cordless phones, ‘smart’ devices etc. These should be eliminated anyway as they can contribute more electrosmog than a nearby cell tower – again a meter would confirm. Also be aware of any radiation from neighbours – below, above or adjacent. Again a meter will help to identify these.
