Are you living close to a 'cancer generator'?

Many people are concerned about devices that generate RF radiation, such as cell phones, but now looming as a possible health threat are the related cell towers and Wi-Fi antennas that broadcast the signals.

There is a growing body of evidence the concerns may be valid. In 2004, a study was conducted in Germany titled “The Influence of Being Physically Near to a Cell Phone Transmission Mast on the Incidence of Cancer.” The study was conducted on behalf of the president of the Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz, the German governmental department for protection against electromagnetic radiation. The research team, led by Horst Eger, conducted the study to determine whether people living close to cell phone antennas were exposed to a heightened risk of developing malignant tumors.

The independent research team studied the case histories of 1,000 patients between the years 1994 and 2004. The participants were then classified into groups: those living 100, 200, 300 and 400 meters from the cell phone base station and a control group living beyond 400 meters.
