Cell phone tower toxicity – can you hear us yet??

November  5, 2010.  Important review of the biological effects for those living near antennas was just published in Environmental Reviews, a Journal of the Canadian National Research Council.


Levitt, BB and H. Lai.  2010. Biological effects from exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell tower base stations and other antenna arrays.  Environmental Reviews 18:369-395.


This paper written by Blake Levitt, an award winning medical science writer, and Dr. Henry Lai at the University of Washington, one of the first scientist along with his colleague Dr. Singh to document DNA damage attributed to cell phone radiation, follows on the heals of a Private Member’s Bill introduced to the Ontario Legislative Assemble by NDP Health Critic, France Gelinas, asking that warning labels be posted on cell phones.


Cell phones communicate with cell phone antennas and both devices emit radiation. One you hold to your head or ideally away from your head.  The other may be near your home or on top of your or a neighbouring apartment building sending out microwave radiation each time someone nearby  uses a cell phone.

The scientific consensus is that the more you are exposed to this radiation, the greater the potential for damaging effects even at levels well below existing federal guidelines.  Indeed, many scientists believe that there is no “safe” level for microwave radiation.
