Cell towers and hidden "stealth" antennas are cropping up all over, despite vehement objections from community members. Health & safety questions arise, but are often dismissed by the very people entrusted to protect community welfare who have been told they cannot consider such questions. Those concerns have yet to be resolved, despite our increasing exposures. Cell Towers cuts through the rhetoric to address the complex issues of low-level RF. Some of the issues addressed:
With chapters contributed by prominent research scientists, government officials, engineers, and attorneys, the book is the most comprehensive and balanced cell tower radiation information resource available for lay people today. 348 pages. 2001.
First he exposed the asbestos industry. Now Paul Brodeur reveals the dangers of high voltage and high current power lines and industry's attempts to cover them up. Tough and highly controversial, Paul Brodeur's book vividly documents EMF tragedies all across the nation-and exposes the massive cover-up undertaken by the electric utilities and their government allies. Brodeur focuses on a wide variety of cases-particularly those in which children are at risk; and shows how local, state, and federal officials have unscrupulously ignored the data, downplaying disease among school children, stifling scientific investigations, and hobbling the E.P.A. He concludes with incisive policy recommendations on ways to resolve the power-line health crisis. An in-depth follow-up to Currents of Death, on the growing body of evidence showing the harm caused by high voltage powerlines. Excellent documentation and abundant citations. 351 pp. 1993
This 58-minute film is the first of its kind to explore the potential health risks and consequences of proliferating wireless devices and transmitting antennas (especially cell phones). The state of the science and needed public policy solutions are reviewed from an international citizen's rights and consumer advocacy perspective. This video talks about what the communications industry prefers not to discuss --- how exposure to radiation from wireless communications technology poses a major environmental health threat.
See footage of experts discussing the known biological threats posed by wireless radiation, sit in on public hearings (including pleas by Senator Tom Hayden of California) discussing the need for a rational policy on cell tower siting, and gain valuable ammunition to help you discuss this important issue intelligently with neighbors, town boards, school boards, anyone involved in tower siting and attorneys. Also a great teaching tool for students.
This bulletin, provides assistance in determining whether FCC-regulated transmitting facilities, operations and devices comply with limits adopted by the Commission in 1996 for human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields. One of the areas discussed in Bulletin 65 is compliance with the limits adopted by the Commission for safe exposure to RF emissions from mobile and portable devices, such as non-fixed wireless transmitters and hand-held cellular telephones.
Supplement C, entitled, "Additional Information for Evaluating Compliance of Mobile and Portable Devices with FCC Limits for Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Emissions." is included which provides further guidance for use by applicants for FCC equipment authorization in evaluating these devices for compliance with RF safety limits. 84 pages 1997.
"Get the message out!"
Nice quality vinyl bumper sticker is a not-so-gentle reminder to fellow motorists of the one of the many dangers of cellphone use: distraction! If you ever get the chance, you can also explain the other hazards as well: reaction time, increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier, and possibly brain tumors. Good for cars, trucks, bikes, skates and just about any other moving vehicle.
