    Sinopsis de: "Cell Towers-- Wireless Convenience? Or Environmental Hazard?"

    Cell towers and 'stealth' antennas are cropping up all over, despite vehement objections from communities. Health and safety questions arise, but are often dismissed by planners & zoners - the people entrusted to protect community welfare - who have been told they cannot consider such questions. But safety concerns about radiofrequency radiation (RF) used in all wireless technologies, span decades and have yet to be resolved, despite increasing exposures. Cell Towers... cuts through the rhetoric to address the complex issues. With chapters by prominent scientists, government officials, physicists, engineers, and attorneys, the book is the most comprehensive and balanced resource available today. Are the health concerns justified? What does the science say? What are the roles of the lead government agencies: EPA? FCC? Are the RF exposure standards reliable and current? Are other species - such as birds - of concern? What about property devaluation? Liability? Case law? What can communities do? What are good zoning regulations? Are we on an environmental collision course with ambient energy? "Finally, a publication dealing with the very timely and important issue of cell towers. Following Levitt's excellent overview of the problem, the book takes us through relevant scientific and regulatory issues in a thorough, easy-to understand manner. This is essential reference work for laypersons, as well as those in science, policy development, regulation, and legislation." - Jerry L. Phillips, Ph.D., Bioelectromagnetics Consultant, former Research Scientist, Cancer Therapy & Research Center in San Antonio, Texas, and Pettis Memorial VA Hospital in Loma Linda, California
