Description

Recommend the relocation of the identified mobile phone base station tower (MPBST) to a safer location to protect our children and educators. Current location is within 200 meters of two elementary schools, posing a significant threat to the health and development of those nearby. As concluded by the 2016 International Journal of cancer and Clinical Research, Vol 3, Issue 1, "Accumulated empirical evidence points to an increased risk of lymphoma, leukemia, melanoma, breast and brain/CNS cancers associated with exposure to [microwave and radiofrequency] MW/RF radiation. The existing safety standards may not be sufficient to protect the public and workers from exposure to MW/RF radiation and should be revised to account for a potentially long-term effect of exposure to MW/RF radiation. Children exposures to MW/RF radiation should be restricted." Additionally, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified RF/EMF (electromagnetic fields) as possibly carcinogenic to humans. This is an unacceptable and avoidable risk to the health and development of our community.
