Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 188482062X, Paperback)Cell Towers and hidden "stealth" antennas are cropping up all over, despite vehement objections from community members. Health & safety questions arise, but are often dismissed by the very people entrusted to protect community welfare - planners and zoners - who have been told they cannot consider such questions. But safety concerns about radio frequency radiation (called RF) used in all wireless technology, spans decades. Those concerns have yet to be resolved despite our increasing exposures. "Cell Towers" cuts through the rhetoric to address the complex issues of low-level RF. With chapters contributed by prominent research scientists, government officials, engineers, and attorneys, the book is the most comprehensive and balanced resource available for lay people today. Questions answered include: Are the health concerns justified? What does the science really say? What are the roles of the lead government agencies: EPA & FCC? Are the RF exposure standards reliable? Are they current? What are other countries doing? Are humans the only concern? What about millions of birds killed annually when they collide with towers? What about property devaluation? Liability? Case law? What can communities do? What are good zoning regulations? Are we on an environmental collision course with ambient energy?
