Cell phone tower are appears from nowhere every single day more and more.
A cell tower is a cellular telephone site where antennae and electronic communications equipment are placed typically on a radio mast, tower, or other raised structure to create a cell in a cellular network.
There are four types of different cell towers that companies build to transmit their signals:
1. Lattice Towers
A freestanding framework towers that are generally made out of steel and offer the most stability. They can be used as electricity transmission towers especially for voltages above 100 kilovolts, as a radio tower or as an observation tower.
2. Monopole Towers
This type of towers features a single tubular mast and because of their instability they don’t build them more than 200 feet high (around 60 meters). Monopole towers are the least intrusive and easiest communication towers to erect making them one of the most popular tower types in the communication industry.
3. Guyed Tower
Similar to the monopole towers by the design and look with only difference is that the guyed tower utilizes guy wires to help with stability. These guy wires require a larger piece of land for the tower and can be installed on the top of the structure, or to the ground. This type of tower is often the cheapest to build, especially at heights over 300 feet.
4. Stealth Towers
Because of zoning code, this towers are sometimes required. They are built in a various different way to ensure that they match their surroundings. This means that these types of towers are more expensive to build, are smaller and generally do not offer the same coverage as the other types of towers.
This cell tower bring a lot of controversies around the world with a lot of people protesting about building this structure close to their house, working places, schools etc. cause of the bad influence for their health and the environment.
According to the article, “Burbank Action: Decreased Real Estate Value,”
“People don’t want to live next to one not just because of health concerns, but also due to aesthetics and public safety reasons, i.e., cell towers become eyesores, obstructing or tarnishing cherished views, and also can attract crime, are potential noise nuisances, and fire and fall hazards.”
Also some researches claim that a cell phone company can decrease the value of your property just by locating a cell tower next, or near, to your property!
One example is the pole that looks like a “thimble” cell tower that popped up overnight on a private land in Penitas, Texas. The citizens and the local police said that they are concern about this cause nobody knows what is the purpose of the tower and who install it there.
A French study in 2003 published
” that people living within 300 meters [900 feet] of cell phone antennas reported various health complaints including, “fatigue, sleep disturbances, headaches, difficulty concentrating, depression, memory loss, visual disruptions, irritability, hearing disruptions, skin problems, cardiovascular disorder and dizziness”.
According to independent EMF researcher Lloyd Burrell at Electric Sense
“Cell phone tower radiation exposures are linked to many different symptoms, these include: insomnia, Low sperm count, Immune system deficiencies, Depression, Headaches, Concentration difficulties, Joint problems, Skin complaints, Cardiovascular diseases, Auditory system Disturbances, Visual problems, Gastrointestinal problems, Dizziness, Nosebleeds etc”.
Another study coming from Belo Horizonte, Brazil
” found that over 80 percent of people who succumbed to certain types of cancer resided a third of a mile away from one of the hundreds of cell phone antennae that populate the city. The study established a link between over 7000 cancer deaths and cell phone tower radiation exposures”.
A study conducted from people in Germany, who live near the Nalia cell tower
” found that after 6-10 years of exposure there was a 3 fold increase in the cancer risk for residents who lived less than 400 meters [1200 feet] from the tower. For people who lived more than 400 meters away from the tower, there was no marked increase in cancer risk”.
We are leaving in a world full of radiation pollution, which we have no one to blame but ourselves for buying all that microwave technologies just to become part of the “smart” digital world and the internet.
From what i can see, In general all the studies and researches around the globe published by independent non-microwave industry, shows that the microwave cell towers have bad influence for the environment , no meter if we talk about people or the nature, just everything that surround them.
