Prof. Girish Kumar gives open challenge - Stand in front of your towers at ICNIRP guideline for 10 days! If nothing happens, he will never speak on Cell Tower Radiation Hazards.
The main point here is - Indian government has adopted a very high standards for radiation from Cell Towers - ICNIRP 1998 - which is averaged over only 6min/day exposure, however we have adopted it for 24*7! Also, assuming ICNIRP guideline is safe, if you take the cumulative power and compare with the power of a microwave over, it implies that it is safe to keep a human body in microwave oven for 19min/day and then safe you are safe. The issue is why adopt such high standards?? Industry is within this norm however still several thousand times higher from health point of view.

The challenge was given more than 1.5 years ago. Till date no Industry or Government rep has excepted it!
