The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Cell Towers, Wireless Convenience? Or Environmental Hazard?':

Unknown reviewer wrote:
Long gone are the days when you had to pull off to the side of the road and search for a pay phone to make a call. With every "advance" in technology towards greater luxery and freedom, one is presented with the so-called 'side effects' these lovely miracles bring with it. With every invention or advance comes responsibility, and that is true for the explosion in wireless communications. "Cell Towers" presents an informed and valid concern regarding yet unexplored side effects of the considerable increase in these towers sprouting up everywhere in response to consumer demand. Environmental exposure from cell tower masts is still a very gray area about which this book wants to inform you. Wireless communication companies will need to address, in cooperation with environmental agencies, the impact that ambient non-ionizing radiation is having on our health, our families and our planet. This is a passionate text written for the lay reader as well as the informed biologist. Inside you will be able to find legal petitions, websites, and proposed federal legislation that is current and timely.

Book description:

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?
