Radiation Safety Certificate from DOH

welcome
By: Elena Grace Flores
In the era of Smart Manufacturing, the impact of previous cancer-scare myths is still haunting the existence of cell sites. Providers of communication technology services are finding it hard to find strategic locations for their mobile phone towers because of this wrong propaganda. As a result, phone signals are not that good which is also a bad thing for subscribers. To pacify people opposing the installation of phone towers, the Department of Health issues a Radiation Safety Certificate as a guarantee that they are indeed safe. read this example from Globe:

Globe cell sites radiation-safety certified by DOH

“The radiation safety certificates for every cell site that we have in the country are a proof that concerns over potential health hazard coming from base stations are without basis,” said Emmanuel Estrada, Globe head of Network Technologies Strategy.  http://www.sunstar.com.ph/manila/business/2013/08/27/globe-cell-sites-radiation-safety-certified-doh-299975


Providers that are abreast with technology as it is advancing already addressed the negative speculations by using control systems that can detect problems before they happen. Being  updated with advanced methods will not only make their products and services safe but will also make them cost-efficient. So better not to believe any gossips before checking the facts. You might be blocking such progress which is also for your own benefit.

Cell Sites cannot Cause Cancer

welcome

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:

American Cancer Society – Latest on Cell Phone Towers

By: 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!
