Can we make the phone mast-cancer link?

Part One

THERE is a growing number of well-reputed professors and scientists around the world, who are raising the alarm about mobile phone base transmitter masts.

They are cautioning that there is an increased incidence of cancer in people working or residing in the vicinity of the masts.

But the global telecoms industry is sticking to its guns, purporting that people in close proximity to the masts are safe and they (providers) are heeding industry standards for radiation emissions.

However, scientific experts counter that those very industry standards are not stringent enough and should be reviewed.

Researcher, Steve Gamble notes that the US, Australian and New Zealand Governments take the transmitter mast issue "seriously enough at both the national and local levels to adopt the precautionary principle and introduced policies of prudent avoidance, which have effectively banned the erection of these masts from school buildings and residential areas and in other densely populated locations".

Mark Townsend in a story carried in The Observer also gave a rather grim take on what was transpiring in Britain.

He wrote: "Schools and hospitals in Britain are making millions of pounds from deals to site mobile phone masts on their premises despite health concerns.

"More than 1,000 schools and hospitals have accepted offers from telecom companies averaging £10,000 to house masts and antennae on their premises."

Townsend reports that campaigners claimed they had identified 15 cancer clusters among people living close to the masts.

The campaigners used special meters which detect microwave emissions from nearby masts.

He wrote that although there is no direct evidence linking microwave radiation from masts to ill health, the campaigners findings ignited calls for a fresh inquiry into the biological effects of mobile phone masts.

Townsend noted that Phil Willis, Liberal Democrat MP, chairman of the all-party Parliamentary group on Mobile Telecommunications, said: "When you examine some of these clusters there are patterns that clearly give credence to the biological effects being looked at in association with these stations."

He also wrote that pressure groups Mast Action UK and Mast Sanity gathered research using complaints from residents living near mobile phone masts who reported a high incidence of cancer and other adverse health effects.

"The clusters include one at Crediton, near Exeter, where residents reported four cancers and three leukemias cases within 300 metres of a mast.

"Another at Gainsborough, Lincolnshire involves four brain haemorrhages-three among next-door neighbours, in residents living within 100 metres of a mast," he said.

Another cluster was identified at Milford Haven, Wales where six people had been diagnosed with cancer since a mast was erected.

At a family home which was described by Townsend as being "sandwiched between two masts, one at a hospital and the other on the roof of an office block", the wife was diagnosed with skin cancer, her husband with throat cancer and their 13 year-old daughter complained of a rash.
