Cell Towers are proliferating. We know what they used to look like, but they are increasingly disguised -- in a tree, in a steeple, inside the top floor of a building, perhaps even in a home of someone who needs money. There has been at least one case of a cell tower, indoors, next to the children's bedroom. Those who work with cell towers have training and monitors and when they are schedule to work, the towers are usually turned off. Everyone else who is exposed to the radiation emitted by cell towers has no protection, not even warnings or the ability to see where the cell towers are. Yes, working in the immediate proximity of the pole is the most dangerous spot. However, prolonged exposure at a lower level is also harmful. It is not only the cooking of tissue that is a concern. Headaches, dizziness, sleep problems, heart palpitations -- are but a few of the things that can wrong when there is prolonged exposure. Further, when the towers are in a residential area, the exposure is during sleep, when the body is most vulnerable. If the exposure is 24/7, the body has no time to heal. There is a petition to large cell phone companies to provide warnings and education to those who are exposed to their radiation.
