Insurance ranks Radiofrequency Radiation #1 Emerging Risk
USA Created: 14 Mar 2013
RF (Radio Frequency) Radiation Risk Today there are more than 600,000 cell sites in the United States and that number is expected to grow with the demand for faster, more reliable wireless devices.

The risks associated with long term use of cell phones, although much studied over the past 10 years, remains unclear.
Dangers to the estimated 250,000 workers per year who come in close contact with cell phone antennas, however, are now more clearly established.
Thermal effects of the cellular antennas, which act at close range essentially as open microwave ovens can include eye damage, sterility and cognitive impairments. While workers of cellular companies are well trained on the potential dangers, other workers exposed to the antennas are often unaware of the health risks.

The continued exponential growth of cellular towers will significantly increase exposure to these workers and others coming into close contact with high-energy cell phone antenna radiation.
