Fear and Panic Followed Stories with barely any scientific proof began doing the rounds.
Fear and Panic Followed People began to blame cell towers for any and every unexplained phenomena
Actress Juhi Chawla’s Involvement•Claims that her building at Malabar Hill in South Mumbai, issubjected to high levels of radiation from cell phone towers•Says that according to an independent study by Prof. GirishKumar, the radiation levels in her neighbourhood stand at adangerous level of 25 Megawatts
The TRUTH•Cell phone towers emit RF waves, which, unlikeMicrowaves, are harmless, and incapable of causing anydamage to humans•Juhi Chawlas claim has been investigated by none other thanfraudulent & tainted Professor Girish Kumar, whose own motiveshave been questioned by everyone in government & civil society
The TRUTH•Juhi’s husband Jay Mehta has business interests in WilcomTechnologies and Salora International•Wilcom is owned by Neha, Girish Kumar’s daughter•These companies deal with anti-radiation products andsupposedly low radiation cell-phones
Questions to JUHI CHAWLA•If you are so concerned about safety of your children, why didn’tyou move to a “safer” area?•Have you stopped using cell phones yourself?
Questions to JUHI CHAWLA•Where do you propose to relocate the cell towers that have beenremoved from your building?•Arent the lives of other peoples children equally important?
Questions to GIRISH KUMAR•Your articles always say cell towers MAY be a risk to your life.Aren’t you sure yet?•You say radiation is carcinogenic. But people who have beenliving under All India Radio towers for decades have not reportedany health problems. Why?
Questions to GIRISH KUMAR•Cell phones are a recent invention. How did you find historicaldata of long term health effects?•Cell tower radiation is even less than that of householdappliances like microwave and radio. These have been aroundfor a longer time than mobiles. Shouldn’t we all have developedhealth problems by now?
Conclusion•There are no studies that confirm that cell tower radiationcauses cancer•Fear spreads faster and hence you will find more negativereports of cell tower radiation than positive•Half of these so-called negative reports are propogated byGirish Kumar and his allies with vested interests•Citizens are therefore urged to conduct their own researchthrough reliable sources and then form an opinion
