Presentation at KEM Hospital on 20th September 2010 for medical doctors.
We have explained the radiation pattern of Cell tower antenna, main beam and minor beam of an antenna, who are at more danger, radiation norms adopted in different countries, calculations for amount of radiation the body may be exposed to with current radiation norms, epidemiological symptoms observed with proximity to towers, biological effects of these radiations. In particular its affect on children and pregnant women, health problems reported from cell tower radiation and other EMF sources- case studies, its impact on the environment - birds, animals, bees, plants etc.
Prof Girish Kumar from IIT Bomaby talked about the engineering aspect of cell tower antennae and I presented the biological effects on humans, animals and mentioned a few case studies.
There are several hundreds of publications which show a positive link between cell phone/ cell tower radiation and its association with illness observed in people. Several thousands of cases have been reported worldwide. All this calls for immediate precautionary actions to be taken before it gets too late.
