Cellular phone masts a hazard and ugly
The United States government is in the pocket of the wireless companies, its
cities and countryside are littered with all kinds of ugly and more than likely
carcinogenic microwave towers that power cell phones.
The Highlands and Islands council is correct to say it wants more careful
siting of these eyesores, but as is already clear from masses of independent
research, electromagnetic radiation from these masts causes genetic damage and
numerous others serious health problems. The Scottish government should simply
ban the erection of these facilities ANYWHERE within 500metres (1500') of any
place people live or work, and make country placement ones appear incognito.
