The Health Department for Brazil’s third
largest city, Belo Horizonte, recently released a government-funded cell phone antenna study
showing an increased risk of cancer for those living within 500 meters of the antennas.The city prosecutor has wasted
no time in suing the cell phone companies, with the result that 66 of the 500
antennas which the citizens asked to be removed, have so far been taken down.Between 1996 and 2006, 7,191 cancer deaths
occurred within an area of 500 meters from the cell phone antenna base
station:a high mortality rate of 34.76 per
10,000 inhabitants.Outside of this
area, there was a decrease in the number of cancer deaths.

In a 52-minute lecture on cell phone tower microwave radiation given in Oakville, Ontario, Dr. Magda Havas, leading Canadian expert, mentions this study.

Mobile Telephony : MfE requests stricter limit values
The International Agency for Research on Cancer
(IARC) considers the waves emitted by wireless communication “possibly
carcinogenic”. According to the IARC,
the risk of cancer for this type of radiation is thus similar to that of the
insecticide DDT, rightly banned. Physicians for the Environment (MfE) is
concerned that the limit values expected to protect the Swiss population, notably
vulnerable groups such as children and pregnant women, constitute insufficient
protection. In a communication sent to
the Federal Assembly, MfE thus requests strict application of the principle of
precaution and – in view of the risk of cancer – lower limit values.
rooms, housing, trams or offices are experiencing a growing exposure to
radiation from diverse sources:
babyphones, mobile telephony, wifi, etc., yet more and more studies warn
against the serious health consequences of electromagnetic pollution for human
beings and animals.
