Biological Effects of Cell Tower Radiation on Human Body

Conference Paper Presentation- 'Biological effects of Cell TowerRadiation' - presented by me and Prof Girish Kumar at InternationalSymposium on Microwave and Optical Technology (ISMOT 2009).

Cell Tower radiation has become of extreme concern as we are exposed tothem 24x7 and one cannot do much if the tower antenna is mounted righton top of your home/school/office building etc. In India, currently(2009) there are about 3.75 lakh cell towers installed and the numbersare expected to rise to 4.25 lakh towers by 2010. Radiation levelmeasurements were carried out at various locations and the levels werefound to be far above the recommended values.

Common complainslike Sleep disruption, Headache, Depression, Concentration, Memoryloss, behavior, discomfort, irritability, nausea, dizziness, appetiteloss, muscle spasms, numbness, tingling, altered reflexes,seizures,paralysis, psychosis, stroke- all related to changes in the electricalactivity of the brain have been on a rise. Similarly increased cases ofAlzheimer’s , Parkinson's disease, infertility, child leukemia, braintumor has been associated with the continuously emitting cell towerradiation.

On reviewing several epidemiological andexperimental studies on harmful effects of Cell Tower Radiation onhealth of human and animals, we recommend safe radiation levels up to50 μW/m2 , with a upper limit as 100 μW/m2. Towards the end, details of"Radiation Shield" -instrument designed to absorb radiation betweenfrequency 800 to 4000 MHz have been given.
