High Court to Govt: Ban on mobile phone towers within 50 metre of schools, hospitals and residential localities

Jul 23, 201 - Times of India Delhi HC issues notice to govt over mobile towers
NEW DELHI: Delhi High Court Monday issued notices to central and Delhi governments on a plea to ban high-frequency mobile phone towers in residential areas as its radiation causes health hazards. Justice Rajiv Shakdher sought response from the Department of Telecommunication, the Chief Secretary of the Delhi government and a leading mobile service provider by Jan 14, 2013. The court's direction came on a plea of Ramnath Garg seeking imposition of ban on installation of high frequency mobile phone towers within 50 metre of schools, hospitals and residential localities. The petition said: "Respondents to be directed to stop the radio frequency waves emitted from cell phone towers causing radiation in the schools, hospitals and residential localities, in which the towers be not allowed to be installed in 50 metres of the places." "The radiation from the cell phone towers causes different type of swelling in the brain, head, hearing disorder, headache and anxiety neurosis... but no action is taken for the safety of the persons living around the towers," the petition further said. Garg also sought directions to the Department of Telecom, private operators and the state government to take steps to reduce exposure to radiation. The petition asked the court to enforce guidelines prepared by a committee formed in 2010 to study health hazards from cell phone towers. Garg also claimed compensation of Rs 50 lakh, saying that his 30-year-old son died of cancer caused by radiation from a mobile tower on the roof of his house. He said the common man is being misled by the cell phone companies and even the civic authorities. "The amount to be given for the negligence of the respondents causing death to his son," said the petition. Garg claimed that local state government officials approached him in 2009 with a proposal to install a tower on the roof of his house in Surajmal Vihar. Though he urged the officials not to erect a very high frequency tower, they misled him, said the petition. As per the petition, all his family members gained weight over one year, but with time they faced sleeping difficulties, digestion problems and their health began to deteriorate. Then a doctor advised him to get the tower removed from his house, suspecting it might be responsible for their health problems, the petition added.

  2. ** Na = 6.02214E23 /mole **
    ** h = 6.63E-34 J-sec **
    ** 1 cal = 4.184 J **

    Cancer is caused by breaking bonds inside
    DNA by enough energy (radiation or heat)

    H-bonds are the weakest bonds inside
    DNA that hold AT, GC base pairs.
    Energy required to break normal
    (covalent) bonds (200 - 800 kJ/mole)
    are much higher than Hydrogen bonds.

    DNA H-bond -> 4 - 13 kJ/mole
    Water H-bond -> 20.92 kJ/mole
    (divide by Na)
    1 DNA H-bond -> 0.664E-20 J - 2.158E-20 J
    1 Water H-bond -> 3.474E-20 J

    Cellular comm (Microwave) -> 2-3 GHz (3 GHz - 10 cm)
    (multiply be h)
    1 Microwave photon -> 13.26E-25 J - 19.89E-25 J

    Blue Light -> 659.34 THz (455 nm)
    (multiply be h)
    1 Blue photon -> 43.714E-20 J

    Energy of 1 microwave photon of highest
    energy is 3338 times lower than energy
    required to break weakest H-bond.

    The probability of two photon
    getting simultaneosuly adsorbed
    is very small. And for 3338 it is
    negligible beyond imagination.

    Energy of 1 blue light photon of
    is 12.58 times higher than energy
    required to break strongest H-bond.

    Still it takes more high energy
    radiation UV, X-ray, beta, gamma to
    ACTUALLY break the bonds as some
    extra energy loss is involved in the
    secondary process.

    If microwave could cause cancer
    we would be getting 1000 times
    more cancer from visible light.

    If you still believe microwave causes
    cancer, you are hopeless in physics.

  3. 3-4 CASES OF CANCER ARE REPORTED NEAR THIS TOWER IN SURAJMAL VIHAR. HIGH COURT HAS GRANTED TIME UPTO JAN 2013 TO RESPOND TO MOBILE COMPANIES. TILL THEN SHOULD PEOPLE DIE FROM CANCER? JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED.
