A telephone company is installing a cell tower (cellular base station-antenna) 40 meters from my house (right in front of my house). The first thing I am concerning about is its effect to our health. My neighbors are worried as well. So I'd like to know How much hazardous is cell tower to our health?
I am not an expert in the field but I know enough to understand that magnetic field the antenna is going to generate will certainly expose some amount of hazard to our health.
I read at Wikipedia that World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer classified electromagnetic fields from mobile phones and other sources as "possibly carcinogenic to humans". Some national radiation advisory authorities, including those of Austria, France, Germany, and Sweden, have recommended measures to minimize exposure to their citizens.
"Effects studied" section of the Wikipedia page addresses several issues like Blood–brain barrier, Cancer, Male fertility, Electromagnetic hypersensitivity, Glucose metabolism which are really scary to read about.
Can anyone answer if installing cell tower too close to population settlement creates hazard to health?
Many thanks for the answers in advance.
