Could exposure to radiation from cell phone towers really responsible for over 7,000 cancer deaths? According to research findings from Brazil, the facts speak for themselves. The study established a direct link between cancer deaths in Belo Horizonte, Brazil’s third largest city, with the cell phone network.

What does this direct link stem from?

Over 80 percent of those who succumbed to certain types of cancer resided approximately a third of a mile away from one of the hundreds of cell phone antennae that populate the city.

These cancers, primarily found in the prostate, breasts, lungs, kidneys, liver, are the ones associated with exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

This is a real concern for cell phone users and even non- cell phone users. Those who shun mobile phone technology still suffer the consequences of cell phone tower radiation.

Is the Brazilian study an isolated study?

Cell phone tower studies which examined the relationship between radiation exposure and cancer rates were conducted in the city of San Francisco in addition to cities in Austria, Germany, and Israel, dating as far back as the 1970s. All the studies shared similar findings: living within a certain proximity to a cell phone tower increased the risk of cancer anywhere from two to 121 times depending on what type of cancer was detected.

Adilza Condessa Dode, PhD, one of the engineering researchers as well as the coordinator of the Brazilian study, addresses those who are concerned about cell phone tower radiation and explains the Brazil study does not stand alone. Dode elaborates, “these levels (EMFs), are already high and dangerous to human health. The closer you live to an antenna, the greater the contact with the electromagnetic field.”

The Brazilian study covers just one city in Brazil. Residents of the United States are vulnerable too as America is home to hundreds of thousands of these radiation emitting towers. In the U.S., with the proliferation of cell phones and the growing needs of cell phone users in recent years, there has been an explosion in cell towers.

Overwhelming evidence

A growing number of organizations and many more studies support the conclusions of the Brazilian study. The International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC), based upon findings from research conducted by an international think tank, came to the conclusion that radio frequency radiation, including the radiation spewing from cell towers, is a possible carcinogen.

The BioInitiative 2012 Report written by a group of leading independent international scientists has put out an unequivocal health warning against exposure to EMFs. This includes exposures from cell phone towers.

Why are cell phone towers particularly dangerous?

The threat comes from the constant nature of the activity of the towers; they emit pulsed radio frequency radiation. This radiation has been shown in thousands of studies to cause biological damage to the body and to be a precursor to disease.

What are some of the dangers (besides cancer), which result from this damage and are associated with EMFs and cell phone antennae?

• Genetic mutations

• Memory disruptions

• Hindered learning


• Insomnia

• Brain disorders

• Hormonal imbalances

• Infertility

• Dementia

• Heart complications

These dangers clearly make it imperative to take action.

Cell towers are here to stay but their implantation needs effective regulation in terms of location and radiation levels. The 1996 Telecommunications Act (TCA), does not qualify the public’s right to protest cell tower locations based on health hazards. Cell towers should be located away from residential areas and far away from schools and day care centers.

  1. Its been proven since the 80’s, but no one cares enouh to learn more about it, I used to work in the hi-teh industry, when we all went for lunc break, and all those mcrowave machines were working you felt it coming from them untill you walked out of the room

    • I wish to add, that back in the 80’s the comic book Marvel even made an episode about the dangers of microwaves in the She Hulk series explaining the effects of radiation on human beings after it was proven to be true, so that dumbass retard who thinks radiation is a bunch of bullshit, go fuck a dead goat you stupid sheeple.

  2. How about, before we all blindly follow someone who may or may not have any real credibility, lets do some research on which type or radio waves are harmful to the human body and which are not. Which are absorbed and which pass through………….

  3. Oh how I do love a good scare campaign, pics of screaming kids with their heads half burned away….. oooohhh scary…. These tower emit very low power radio waves measured in mere in watts(below 10watts)…. yet people will happily live up the street from a 500 Kilowatt(500,000 watts) TV or radio transmitter, two way radio transmitter with 10 times the power of cell phone towers and pager transmitters. All electronic devices emit EMR…. you are surrounded by thousands of these things. and yes even your microwave over emits EMR but in dosed deemed to be safe…… People need to look at the WHOLE picture and don’t go blaming just ONE thing

  4. We all know that Cell Phone Tower & High Voltage Power Lines Emit Dangerous CANCER CAUSING RADIATION…FACT !
    YOUR HEALTH IS AT RISK… Earth Patriot
    All day long your Family is being bombarded by Dangerous Deadly DIRTY ELECTRICITY… Earth Patriot
    It is in your Home , Schools and your Workplace…
    Wireless Internet , Computer Screens , Fluorescent Lights , Many Electrical Appliances , Cell Phones and Many More…..

    This dirty Electricity is linked to CANCERS like Leukemia..


    We use Propitiatory Magnetic Earth’s Energy to shield our bodies from all this dirty electricity and EMP’S…
    The Earth’s Magnetic Field protects the Earth from all the dangerous RADIATION from the Sun.
    So our Magnetic Technologies do the same for our bodies…
    Make sense?

    Want to try them?

  5. Ive been scanning this fear-monger page and this is also untrue, i have personally worked on cell towers for over 10 years and know guys that have for longer and no cancer. Radiation isn’t generated by a tower or phone.

  6. Golden Cindy. I do not doubt that there are cell phone towers everywhere. I in no way believe economic status can insulate one from all bad environmental factors.
    The article specifically mentions that the closer one has in proximity, the possible greater the risk. I was stating that scientific methodology can determine different outcomes( I taught science for 22 years on the campus of a major university and taught my students to use and question scientific methods when drawing conclusions).This helps prevent the ” I read it so it must be true” environment. Cell towers and cell phones may very well be linked to cancer. I know those with pacemakers must keep cell phones 12 inches away from their ICD for well documented reasons.
    I was pointing out that the ” all things being equal” is important to be considered in scientific studies. I did not see a link to the specific studies mentioned in the article. I would be interested to read them.

  7. Only found out cigarettes were bad because there were still people that didn’t smoke and they didn’t get sick over the years like smokers did… But, there’s not much you can do to avoid this. There’s a good doc. about all this, they show a man who basically made his house a faraday cage because he was sensitive to the radiation

  8. Do these studies take all other variables into account? For example, people with cell phones may be less economically challenged and therefore may be better able to have preventative medical care? They tend to not place cell phone towers near upscale neighborhoods as they would be unsightly. Did they also take into account the number of smokers living near the towers?
    And heart disease is still the number one cause of death.
    I am not saying there isn’t some connection- only wondering as to the scientific methodology used to draw this conclusion.

  9. My husband has worked on these cell towers for many years and I know many people in the field. Funny I don’t know any of THEM,that would be exposed the most, that have died of cancer and my husband is a healthy man.

  10. I know… “They” think we are stupid when they continue to say heart disease is the #1 killer. All you have to do is think about everyone you know who has died in your lifetime and you’ll have your answer!! Cancer IS the #1 killer of people ALL ages, even children. And Vickie Jobe… its all of the above!! And lets not forget vaccines!! So line up folks for those flu shots!!

  11. Lol my parents have a cellphone tower no more than 10 feet from their business (of repairing cellphones and radios which they have done for 30-odd years) and my dad also smokes 1.5 packs a day. No cancer yet.

  12. Our cells are killing us! I believe this. It says it right on the instructions to any smart phone! We sit here and take it! Demand cells n towers be safe! Boycott and tell you reps this is an issue! stand Up America!

    • “Cell” is a short-form of “cellular telephone”, and is used so commonly in said reference that generally everyone knows what it means when someone says it. “Get off your cell when driving!” is a good example.

      No need to go down *that* road, as it only takes away from the subject at hand. LEave the thread on the rail please. 😉

  13. CELL PHONE TRANSMISSION TOWERS……and others saying the PHONES and others still MICROWAVES……….there goes any FREE ENERGY and WIRELESS TRANSMISSION DREAMS …….so LONG TESLA ………it of course couldn’t have anything to do with the 98 MILLION CANCER ENZYME INJECTIONS in POLIO VACCINES……….has to be WIRELESS and MICROWAVES ……..great
