So he "read enough about cell towers and cancer rates on the internet." This is a prime opportunity for the Reformer to rise above the level of disinformation and nonsense on the internet by not printing a scare-mongering accusation like this without doing some research and reporting on how totally absurd it is as a scientific claim. The contribution by a cell tower to local background EMF is far below the EMF from the electrical wires and devices in any wired home. If the Reformer is going to print, even second-hand, silly pseudo-science, it is the Reformer's public responsibility to show that print newspapers can still go beyond random internet sites.

Putting a cell tower next to a school is the most "greed driven form of child abuse" there is. los angeles, portland, new zealand, france and others ban them near schools. radio frequency radiation from cell towers cause cancer and many other acute and chronic conditions. this is not considered irrefutable among most of the scientific community and journalists that are actually looking into this. for more info: http://www.wirelesswatchblog.com who said these private corporations have the right to invade our bodies with radio frequency radiation??

It is now irrefutable that cell phones and other sources of RF and EMF's cause brain cancer and a host of other acute and chronic conditions. Schools and city councils should be lobbied for change and wi fi should be taken out of schools and libraries. RF and EMF health issues should be taught in schools alongside the dangers of tobacco and alcohol. Our educators have a moral and legal obligation to protect our children from toxic environments.
