New Cell Tower Report in Error: Don't Get Closer Than 1500 Feet

This new report is a great dis-service to you and your health.  The main error is that the study is too short.  The time frame is legitimate studies are well know to me much longer.  And if you review the existing science on this subject you will see that  the standard distance to a tower where you have continual exposure is not less than 325 yards or better, 1500 feet (500 yds).

Of course you are free to decide what risk you really want to take.

LONDON, June 23 (UPI) -- British researchers say living near a cellphone base station does increase a woman's likelihood of having a child with cancer.

Researchers at the Imperial College London analyzed radio frequency exposure from nearby mobile phone base stations during the nine months of pregnancy for mothers of 1,397 children who developed leukemia or nervous system brain cancer in their first four years of life.

Exposures were also calculated for the mothers of controls -- four children for each cancer child who share gender and birth date.

The study, published in the British Medical Journal, concluded children developing cancer were no more likely to have a birth address near a cellphone base station than those in the control group.

"People are worried that living near a mobile phone mast might affect their children's health," study corresponding author Paul Elliott says in a statement. "We found no pattern to suggest that the children of mums living near a base station during pregnancy had a greater risk of developing cancer than those who lived elsewhere."

Elliott and colleagues analyzed total power output and power density for base stations near the birth address of almost 7,000 children.  © 2010 United Press International, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
And on a healthier cell phone note 

San Francisco has become the first city in the US to require mobile phone retailers to post radiation levels next to the handsets they sell.

I just found out that my 24 yr old cousin has a brain tumor. I am convinced it's cellphone related. How can cellphones be a convenience for us when it is making us more ill? Can western society create anything that does not have a serious side effect?

This can be a real concern and the sad part is that so much of this has been known yet withheld from consumers.
I am sorry for your cousin, I lost my niece last October to a brain tumour, not sure of her cell phone use, or microwave cooking, WIFI et al.
If using one never leave it by your bed and use speaker phone mode. Never use if pregnant or around infants and children.

Thanks for the kind words. I finally got rid of the router today and gave away the microwave. My next thing is to get rid of the cordless phones.

I am just glad for sites like these that keep the info going out there.
