Save India- Adopt Better Cell Tower Radiation Norms

Save India- Adopt Better Cell Tower Radiation Norms

Purpose of the mail

The Indian government through department of telecommunications have invited opinion on “Effect of EMF radiation on human health” through their website “http://www.dot.gov.in/miscellaneous/imc.htm “. We want you to please be a part of this as it can not only affect you but your family and near dear ones. Please go through the following effects of cell tower radiation before mailing to them.

Summary of health effects due to cell tower radiation

1. Due to cell tower radiations, lot of people are suffering from various forms of cancer and tumor like salivary gland tumors, lymphoma, facial nerve tumors, skin, blood, testicular and breast cancer.
2. People who lived close to the cellular antennas face the highest incidences of the following disorders: fatigue, sleep disturbances, headaches, visual disruptions, irritability, hearing disruptions, skin problems, cardiovascular disorders and dizziness.
3. Cell tower radiations are causing a lot of environmental problems like disappearance of bees, drying up of fruits and plants. It creates navigational problems for many birds. Also the agricultural output has been reduced at many places where cell towers have been installed.

To avoid all these or to minimize the effects, the radiation norms should be brought down to .001 w/m2 from the present levels of 9.2w/m2. This is what we should ask the government to formalize.

General misconceptions regarding cell tower radiations:

7 comments:

  1. The radiations emitted from mobile phone are more dangerous than radiations reaching to user from the cell phone tower, because the intensity of the radiations drop below the danger limit when it reaches a user who is usually hundreds of meters away from the cell tower, but as the mobile phone is usually very very close to our body most of the time and the intensity of radiations reaching us from it is very high compared to the radiations from cell tower, so be careful and start protecting yourself from the mobile phone radiations by using waveban radiation shield, visit http://www.waveban.in to know more in details

  3. how do we come to know the level of radiation from a mobile tower.also whom do we need to contact in case the radiation levels are high.

    1. Dear Mr. Ashish,

      We have come up with a detector based on health recommendations. Please find the details http://neha-wilcom.blogspot.in/2011/12/cell-tower-radiation-detector-detex-189.html

      Or you can ask TRAI to do the measurement however the problem is that their reference level is ICNIRP guideline and all operators are much below this guideline, so the possibility of the actual danger is neglected.

  4. it is too much to comment on cell phone tower without knowing about it as it is are we not victim of radiation can i complaint to anybogy

    1. Dear Pandian,

      You can read about the same at:

      (1) Cell Tower Radiation Report - sent to DOT (Department of Telecommunications) - http://www.scribd.com/doc/44736879
      (2) Radiation Hazards from Cell Phones and Cell Towers - Presentation at KEM Hospital -http://www.scribd.com/doc/37796846

      Unfortunately, right now in India there is no e-mail id or authority where one can directly complain. However, one can try writing to TUG/DOT/TRAI.

  5. Dear Neha, Please suggest a EM radiation meter from independent authority / renowned manufacturer like Tektronix so that people can check the radiation levels themselves. Also detex 189 has only 3 LED indicator, please refer some with LCD display of exact radiation levels within 10~20K price range.
