Credible Research Supports Cell Tower Health Risks
Just a few days ago, May 31, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) made a historic announcement today that cell phones may cause cancer. It rated personal exposure of non-ionizing radiation emitted from cell phones as a possible humancarcinogen (Group 2B), the same rating as lead, engine exhaust, and chloroform. The rating was based onan increased risk of a glioma, which is a deadly brain tumor.A proposal from T-mobile was disclosed to parents shortly before summer vacation. If passed, it will allowfor the construction of 150’ cell towers at the following locations:
Notice to DeKalb County
Regarding the proposal to locate a cell tower at each of the following schools:Briarlake Elementary SchoolBrockett Elementary SchoolFlat Rock Elementary SchoolJolly Elementary SchoolLakeside High SchoolMargaret Harris Center Martin Luther King, Jr. High SchoolMedlock Elementary SchoolMeadowview Elementary School Narvie J. Harris Elementary SchoolPrinceton Elementary SchoolSmoke Rise Elementary SchoolDeKalb County School Board expected to vote:
THIS MONDAY, JUNE 6 at 6 p.m.*
Here is the notification from the school board:http://www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/news-and-info/cell-phone-towersThe specifics of this proposal, including the dollar amounts involved, have not been disclosed to the public.When asked directly at a school meeting about how much the schools would receive directly, T-mobilerepresentatives refused to comment. A fair cost / benefit analysis cannot be made if the public is not givenaccess to the terms that the school board is considering.
* This is the assumed date and time for the vote on this agenda item. It was circulated via email toPTA members of one or more of the schools on the list. However, the meeting agenda has not beenconfirmed. Requests by this author to view the agenda have not been acknowledged. All concernedcitizens are encouraged to attend Monday’s meeting.
There are cell towers everywhere! What makes this proposal any different?
True, cell towers have been popping up in Atlanta and across the county at an alarming rate. In fact, in oneneighborhood being cited by T-mobile as needing additional coverage, the number of towers is already at86 existing and 2 pending in just a four mile radius from the school. However, the residential areas in our county have been protected from direct exposure to cell tower emissions within about a mile radius, untilnow. Typically, cell towers have been confined to commercial areas such as parking lots or alongInterstates where personal exposure to human beings is limited.What is currently being proposed in DeKalb county and around the country is the citing of large-scale cell
towers within the center of quiet, residential communities. One way of gaining access to this residentialarea is by offering long-term lease agreements to the schools and parks which are zoned as “multi-use“ properties. The public school system has been a target for T-mobile because, in their words, “it was theeasiest place to start.”Since cell towers at our local schools would place them in the heart of our residential areas, adjacent to our schools where children spend as much as eight or more hours per day, five days a week, there is reason for  parents and others to be alarmed. For children who live near the school, their exposure would be round theclock. Studies have not been conducted regarding the outcome of this type of continuous exposure to non-thermal radiation.
If approved, our children will become part of what is becoming known as“the biggest human experiment of all time."
