Cell Phone Tower Health Effects

8 Studies referenced from the World Health Organisation
 
(1) Santini et al, 2002 (France): 530 people living near mobile phone masts reported

more symptoms of headache, sleep disturbance, discomfort, irritability, depression,

memory loss and concentration problems the closer they lived to the mast.

 

(2) Navarro E, 2003 (Spain): Statistically significant positive exposure-response

associations between field intensity and fatigue, irritability, headaches, nausea, loss of

appetite, sleeping disorder, depressive tendency, feeling of discomfort, difficulty in

concentration, loss of memory, visual disorder, dizziness and cardiovascular

problems. Two different exposure groups also showed an increase of the declared

severity in the group with the higher exposure.

 

(3) Bortkiewicz et al, 2004 (Poland): Residents close to mobile phone masts reported

more incidences of circulatory problems, sleep disturbances, irritability, depression,

(4) Wolf et al, 2004 (Israel): A four-fold increase in the incidence of cancer among

residents living within 300m radius of a mobile phone mast for between three and

seven years was detected.

 

(5) Eger et al, 2004 (Germany): A three-fold increase in the incidence of malignant

tumours was found after five years' exposure in people living within 400m radius of a

mobile phone mast.

 

(6) Hutter et al, 2006 (Austria): A significant correlation between measured power

density and headaches, fatigue, and difficulty in concentration in 365 subjects.

 

(7) Abdel-Rassoul et al, 2007 (Egypt): Residents living beneath and opposite a long established

mobile phone mast reported significantly higher occurrences of

headaches, memory changes, dizziness, tremors, depressive symptoms and sleep
