DOT Inter-ministry committee accepts radiation hazard

An Inter-ministerial committee was constituted to examine the effect of EMF radiation on human health. A soft copy of the report (Inter Ministerial Committee Report on EMF Radiation) is placed on the DOT website. It is requested that feedback if any may please be sent at the following address by 25.02.2011:

You can see the full report at
They have mentioned several health hazards due to radiation and
recommended to use 1/10th of the existing radiation norms, pl see
Section 5.7, page 33.

However, according to my study and calculations, they should adopt lower than this value, which is 0.1 W/sq.meter immediately and which should
be reduced further to 0.01 W/sq.meter in 1 to 2 years, which will give
time for operators for smooth network operations.

Please spare time to go through it and educate people and write to
the above concerned people to adopt safe radiation norms.

With regards.

Cancer victim on Cell Tower Radiation

A cancer victim from Usha Kiran building after five cancer cases in the same building. "We are always told to give proof that we fell ill because of mobile tower radiation. We ask all of you to prove that we did not fall ill because of mobile tower radiation"

Radiation Health Hazards from cell phones and mobile towers - Myth or Reality

Bombay Telephone User’s Association (BTUA) on its 25th celebration organized a meet on 29 Jan 2010 on "Consumer Awareness and Radiation Health Hazards from cell phones and mobile towers - Myth or Reality", where experts from various fields very invited.

At the panel were experts from Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Telecom User Group (TUG), Prof Girish Kumar, IIT Bombay and others, however no official representative appeared from the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) and the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI).

Prof. Girish Kumar gave a talk on "Better Radiation Norms for Cell Phones and Cell Towers "

Better Radiation Norms for Cell Phones and Cell Towers

Presentation on Biological Effects of Cell Tower Radiation

Biological Effects of Cell Tower Radiation

Towards the end, a lot of victims came forward and spoke about their health problems and the increasing number of cancer cases among their neighbours.

One lady developed a meningioma (benign tumour) and had recovered, however the tumour has recurred back. The number of cancer cases has risen to six in her building and these cases have appeared on the 5th, 6th (2 cases), 7th, 8th and 10th floor of the same building, and some others feel sick. All these houses are in direct line of sight from the towers installed on the7th Floor of opposite building located at a distance of about 50 meter.

Another lady (a doctor by profession) has developed ovarian cancer and mentioned that nine ladies have developed cancer in a row. Even they have several towers very close and opposite to their building.

Yet another person mentioned that there were towers atop his house (10m distance) and his grandson becomes epileptic when he is at home.

Many others complained of severe headaches, buzzing sensation in the head, fatigue, involuntarily hand movements, heavy heads, severe body pains, sleep disturbance and so on. All of them mentioned that they feel better when they are away from towers.

It is really disheartening when you see such cases yourself. People are really suffering and are very angry now. However, the rules which have been framed by the industry has made the common man totally helpless!

We don't know what the government and industriy are waiting for - Perhaps a cancer boom! I really hope not.

Testimony of a victim of EMF radiation:

Testimony of a victim of EMF radiation:

Munich, Germany (Name kept anonymous):

A few years ago I became aware of myself being sensitive to electromagnetic radiation.

First I felt dizzy and sick in my stomach, Then I had difficulty to fall asleep and my sleeping spans became shorter and shorter. I felt agitated and restless. My normally low blood pressure skyrocketed. My heart sometimes was racing. Doctors didn´t find anything wrong with my body and didn´t offer any cure.

I found out myself what caused my symptoms:

Emissions from celltowers nearby, also my neighbour`s digital cordless phones and wireless-lan computers with basestations and modems both radiating 24 hours a day. I asked my neighbours to use cables for the computer and the new ECO DECT phones. Most of my neighbours responded, but not all. This gave me already some relief. I often fled to the countryside where my symptoms miraculously vanished and reemerged after coming home.

In the meantime my symptoms are getting worse and include high pitched sounds in the ear (Tinnitus), joint pains, nausea, heart palpitations, short term memory loss etc. When my symptoms become unbearable I go to sleep in my car in the underground garage or in a nearby wood.

There are people who can´t work anymore in this sickening environment and are applying for their pensions as young as fourty years old. They are acknowledged as being disabled but not because of Electrohypersensitivity, but of psychic problems.

The much praised wireless revolution is creating living hell on earth for me and many of my friends. The German government does not care about the ca. 9 % electrosensitive people who are fleeing their homes to escape the antennas, as long as the majority is buying their lies about the harmlessness of microwave radiation. Studies have shown that 50% of the Germans have sleeping problems, children have sicknesses only known by elderly people in earlier generations, but any context with microwave radiation is officially denied.

I know of course that this is a global problem and India is affected as well. It is high time that people awake to this danger to life.
