Lethal exposure guidelines
Even if there were reliable compliance monitoring, experts say that FCC public
exposure guidelines for RF/microwave radiation are deadly because they are based on the obsolete and unfounded theory that
only power density hot enough to flash-cook tissues is harmful. This puts FCC at odds with current scientific evidence regarding
the minimum exposure level at which harm to living cells begins.
Myriad symptoms of radiation poisoning can be induced
at exposure levels hundreds, even thousands of times lower than current standards permit. Russia’s public exposure standards
are 100 times more stringent than ours because Russian scientists have consistently shown that, at U.S. exposure levels, humans
develop pathological changes in heart, kidney, liver and brain tissues, plus cancers of all types……...suffer health

Prior to 1996, the wireless age was not coming online fast enough, primarily because communities had the
authority to block the siting of cell towers. But the Federal Communications Act (1996) made it virtually impossible for communities
to stop construction of cell towers —even if they pose threats to public health and the environment….

Wireless communications radiation
is to America today what DDT, thalidomide, dioxin, benzene, Agent Orange and asbestos were yesterday. Historically, the truth
about the public health menace of extreme toxins is never told until thousands sicken and die.
We can only guess how
many Americans are in their graves today from microwave assault. Arthur Firstenberg, who founded the Cellular Phone Task Force,
wrote that, on November 14, 1996, New York City’s first digital cellular provider activated thousands of PCS antennae
newly erected on the rooftops of apartment buildings. Health authorities reported that a severe and lingering flu hit the
city that same week. In response to its classified newspaper ad advising that radiation sickness is similar to flu, the Task
Force heard back from hundreds of people who reported sudden onset symptoms synchronous to microwave startup—symptoms
similar to stroke, heart attack and nervous breakdown.
Firstenberg gathered statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and analyzed weekly mortality statistics published for 122 U.S. cities. Each of dozens of cities recorded a 10-25
percent increase in mortality, lasting two to three months, beginning in the week during which that city’s first digital
cell phone network began commercial service. Sites with no cellular system start up in the same time period showed no abnormal
increases in mortality.23
Recent health surveys in other nations confirm that people living close to
wireless transmitters are in big trouble:
• In 2002, French medical specialists found that people living close to
cell towers suffered extreme sleep disruption, chronic fatigue, nausea, skin problems, irritability, brain disturbances and
• German researchers found that people living within 1,200 feet of a transmitter site
in the German city of Naila had a high rate of cancer and developed their tumors on average eight years earlier than the national
average. Breast cancer topped the list.25
• Spanish researchers found that people living within 1,000 feet of cellular
antennas had statistically significant illness at an average power density of 0.11 to 0.19 microwatts /cm2, which is thousands
of times less than allowed by international exposure standards.26
• An Egyptian medical study found that people
living near mobile phone base stations were at high risk for developing nerve and psychiatric problems, plus debilitating
changes in neurobehavioral function. Exposed persons had significantly lower performance on tests for attention, short term
auditory memory and problem solving.27
• Researchers in Israel studied people in the town of Netanya who had lived
near a cell tower for 3-7 years. They had a cancer rate four times higher than the control population. Breast cancer was most
Europe in an uproar
A new European Union poll of more than 27,000 people across the continent reveals
that 76 percent of respondents feel that they are being made ill by wireless transmitters.29 Seventy-one percent in the UK
believe they suffer health effects from mast (cell tower) radiation. In April 2007, The London Times reported a startling
number of cancer clusters in mast neighborhoods. One study in Warwickshire, found 31 cancers around a single street.30 Some
sick Brits send their blood to a lab in Germany, which uses state of the art methodology to confirm wireless radiation damage.
