There have been speculations that cell sites or cell phone towers cause cancer due to radiation – but this is not true. Simply because RF frequency of these sites are too low compared to x-rays. The distance from the tower to the ground cannot also penetrate even the slightest cell in the body. Read this report from the American Cancer Society:
Some people have expressed concern that living, working, or going to school near a cell phone tower might increase the risk of cancer or other health problems. At this time, there is very little evidence to support this idea. In theory, there are some important points that would argue against cellular phone towers being able to cause cancer. http://www.emfexplained.info/?ID=25821
When it comes to radiation, cell sites even have lesser effect compared to the cell phone near your ears. If cell phone towers really do cause cancer, then all mobile phone users are already with cancer which is far from reality. Why check what you eat – to prevent yourself from having one!
