Letter: Cancer worry over radiation
United Kingdom Created: 3 Aug 2017
Steve Grove is right, Letters, July 19 - Most low-level microwave radiation is found inside houses rather than outside them, and I agree with him – where are the facts on mobile phone masts?.

Our Government insists that drugs are tested before they are let loose on the public. No one tested the phone masts or the mobiles or the more dangerous Dect phones – Dect phones are like your own mini mobile phone mast in that they give out low-level microwaves in your home day and night. No one tested wi-fi or Bluetooth.

Basically it is left to us the public to prove that they are damaging our health.

The Government made billions selling the airwaves to the mobile phone companies who make around $17bn a year.

The economy profits. GNP goes up. Young and old are happily addicted to their phones.

The problem is that no one can see these microwaves – yet it seems to me that it is self-evident that, as our bodies/nerves work on electrical impulses, they can be interfered with by numerous other forms of radiation.

There is plenty of anecdotal evidence – for instance, in nearby Crediton there were five cancers in four homes directly behind each other in the beam of a phone mast.

These people are not all old – the cancers in the house nearest the mast being a five-year-old child and her young mother.

I spent five years going around the cancer and other illness clusters around mobile phone masts in England, houses where even the dogs and pet rats got cancers.

There are independent scientific studies that show low-level microwaves damage health. Those studying them soon stop getting research grants. The mobile phone companies do most of the studies which are short and quick and show they don’t affect us.

I can point to scientists who have been removed or sacked if they get the wrong results.

More than 6,000 doctors in Germany signed the Frieburger Appeal, pointing out the illnesses their patients were prone to when living near mobile phone masts. Our English doctors are not allowed to comment.

Phone masts, such as the new one proposed in Totnes, are for 4G phones, smart meters that GCHQ warns us can be hacked, and probably for those passing through Totnes on the train.

The Government has tied the hands of planners and our district councillors. Mobile phone masts go up as if they were lamp posts.

The planners are not allowed to object on health grounds and the councillors will incur huge fines if they do – we will then pay them via our council tax, and the masts will go up anyway.
