It has become a part of the environment to see tall masts in different locations around the country. It is also fact that these telecommunication masts carry microwave radiations that aid the flow of wired information. These masts though helpful, have been proven to have negative health effects on people living near where they are erected. The erection of multiple masts clustered in built-up areas is thus hazardous
From epidemiologic research, persons living in places where telecommunication masts are erected are vulnerable to disorders like cancer, lung diseases, sleep disturbances and even physical disabilities.
