S.O.S. SANTA FE: THE BACK STORY ON CELL TOWERS

IF THE "URGENT" POST LINKS BELOW DO NOT WORK, JUST ENTER THE TITLE INTO SEARCH WINDOW....THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE...SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN TO THIS SITE. FOR EASIER UPDATES, "SUBSCRIBE" IS ABOVE AT RIGHT CORNER. Do you live within 3000 feet of the proposed site? Do your children spend hours a day at a nearby school or child care? Because property owner Tom McCullum has applied to lease to a 64 foot cell phone tower behind the Burger King located at the corner of West Alameda and St. Francis. The only problem with that is that just a few strides away is the Gonzales Community School, housing K through 8th grades. Between McCullum's property and the school is an arroyo filled with dry brush and trees. And if the tower fell, it could easily explode the three gas pumps leased there by Phillips 66. FCC specialist Attorney Andrew Campanelli, who represented the “Moms of Merrick” and groups in other communities opposing cell towers, says safety questions persist about cell phone towers, especially near schools. Campanelli said in Bayville, five children who attended school 50 feet from cell antennas on a water tower have been diagnosed with cancer or leukemia and three have died....

LEADING UK MD WANTS CELL TOWERS BANNED NEAR SCHOOLS

Dr Baxendale claims the situation is now so serious that immediate action should be taken to stop masts going up in places where children congregate. ‘You can’t reverse the process later. By then the damage could well have been done,’ Dr Baxendale said. The scientist wants a ban in Scotland, following the lead of New Zealand, Sweden, Italy, Australia and parts of the U.S. in banning them from such areas. In 2005, the Mail revealed that a third of schools in Britain’s towns and cities had a mast within 200 yards of them.
The Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association, representing 45,000 teachers, says computers in all new schools should be hardwired instead of setting up wireless networks. It also says Wi-Fi should not be installed in any more classrooms.

In a position paper released today, the union - which represents 45,000 teachers - cites research by the World Health Organization.

Last year the global health agency warned about a possible link between radiation from wireless devices such as cellphones and cancer. Some believe wireless access to the Internet could pose similar risks.

The MCG wants the mobile operators to relocate these towers from residential areas to commercial locations. "It's a well known fact that the radiation from these towers causes deadly diseases like cancer and we want to ensure the safety of our residents. There are hundreds of mobile towers in residential areas and in case somebody gets affected by this radiation everybody will blame us for it," said mayor Vimal Yadav.

Important regions of the brain necessary for learning, memory and other functions of the mammalian brain were impacted by the microwave radiation, including the hippocampus, cerebellum and frontal lobe, at exposures below the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) safety guidelines....providing new evidence for a potential relationship between everyday cell phone use, wireless transmitters and wireless computer equipment and electrosensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness and sleep disorders, as well as with tumors, Alzheimer's and even metabolic effects.

Cell Phone Report: Children and Pregnant Women Require More Protection

John Wargo, Ph.D., professor of Environmental Risk and Policy at Yale University and lead author of the report, said, “The scientific evidence is sufficiently robust showing that cellular devices pose significant health risks to children and pregnant women." Frequent texting means cell phones are often kept in a pocket all day and under a pillow or on a teenager's bed at night. Exposures to electromagnetic radiation are increasing most rapidly among the youngest in our society, as service providers focus their advertising on children and educational markets.”
Chris Varcoe, president of the Mississauga Fire Fighters Association, expressed concern about plans by the municipality to locate cell towers at City facilities, including fire stations.

"We believe that there are established biological effects from exposure to low-level cell tower radiation," said Varcoe. "Such biological effects may be markers of adverse health effects, similar to biological markers arising from exposure to toxic chemicals. Therefore, we strongly object to placement of cell towers on our fire stations and request that you carefully consider placements for towers on City properties or withhold the decision altogether until the true health effects are known."

For each hour a child uses a transmitting wireless phone or wireless laptop to communicate, watch videos/TV or play games, he may be exposing his developing brain, eye and gut tissues to radiation damage equivalent to 66.6 chest X-rays.

If the 1.75 million 8 and 9 year olds who now use cell phones average only half an hour a day, they will be at high risk for radiation cancer in their teen years. Cancer is the number two cause of death for American children.

Results of this study indicated that whole body exposure to modulated RFR similar to that emitted by GSM mobile phones caused pathological changes in the thyroid gland by altering gland morphology and inducing apoptotic [cell suicide] pathways.
