Do you know how close your home is to cell towers and or cell phone antennas? "Being exposed to a mobile tower located within 160' of your home or workplace is like being in a microwave oven for 24 hours," said Prof. Girish Kumar, department of electrical engineering, IIT Bombay, who submitted a report on cell tower radiation to the department of telecommunications.
Knowledge is power. Locate the number of towers and cellphone antennas you are living and working near. You can find the exact number by simply putting your address into this service:

I am always disgusted when I see what a pathetic job the US does in removing toxins and other environmental risks for their citizens. Once again we are on the list of almost worst offenders in this regards.
Country Limits: Radiation Values and norms in other countries are more stringent and allowed exposure is much lower than in US. (stated in milliwatts per meter square)
Switzerland: 42 mw/m sq
Russia: 100 mw/m sq
China: 400 mw/m sq
US: 3000 mw/m sq
India: 4,500 mw/m sq
Several studies done in various countries such as Germany, Austria, Brazil, Israel, etc have reported increase in cancer cases in 5 to 10 years, where radiation level was more than 1 mW/m2.
Cancer is the last stage and before that, people living close to mobile phone towers have reported sleep disturbances, headaches, memory loss, lack of concentration, fatigue, joint pains, vision distortion, miscarriage, heart problems, etc.
Also, these safety standards are based on 6 minutes per day exposure, without accounting for people who live close to cell towers 24/7. The norms allow EMF of 4,500 mw/m2.
What you can do to protect yourself:
Don't buy a home near one even if the price is right.
Maximize your health through proper nutrition and good hydration.
People who are living within + to + mile of a mobile tower should get their houses tested for radiation.
Eat foods high in antioxidants and take supplements.
Limit your use of wireless devices. Go back to 'wired' connections whenever possible.
People can refuse to work or shop in environments that endanger their health. They can demand that wireless devices be removed from their children's schools and from their work and entertainment places.
Don't let cell phone companies install cell phone antennas on the roofs of schools where your children attend.
An apartment owners Association or Resident Welfare Association (RWA) should ensure that service providers and property owners have permission from occupants before installing Cell phone Towers.
If any citizen has apprehensions, he should seek an explanation from the company putting up the tower. If that remedy fails then they have a right to approach the court of law.
