“We found that cells inside the brain, after exposure to radiofrequency radiation, had DNA damage. These are so-called strand breaks. The DNA basically break up into pieces. In my experiment, I only expose animals for a short time. Then the question is, what happens if you’re exposed to radiation, for example, from cell towers? ” – Dr. Henry Lai, Ph.D.
Dr. Henry Lai, Ph.D. Bioelectromagnetics Expert: first to find DNA breaks! Dr. Henry Lai heads the Bioelectromagnetics Research Laboratory at the Universe of Washington in Seattle. Lai and colleague Narendra Singh conducted research that found DNA breaks in the brain cells of rats exposed to radio frequency radiation (Sun-Sentinel/Kathy Sauber / September 30, 2005 – PubMed )

Federal regulations protect the public only from the thermal (i.e., heating) risk due to short-term exposure to high intensity, cell tower radiation. The Federal regulations ignore the hundreds of studies that find harmful bio-effects from long-term exposure to non-thermal levels of cell phone radiation. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not allow communities to stop the siting of cell towers for health reasons. Nevertheless, landlords may be liable for any harm caused by cell phone radiation emitted by towers situated on their property. Localities need to organize and change the Federal law to protect public health and wildlife from exposure to microwave radiation emitted by mobile phone base stations.
As of March 10, 2019, www.antennasearch.com, an industry website, reports 712,000 cell towers and 1.98 million cell antennas in the U.S. We cannot verify the accuracy of these data because the FCC only collects data on certain types of cell towers.

Following are some resources regarding the health effects of exposure to cell tower radiation. I will occasionally update this page.
Olle Johansson, associate professor at
the Karolinska Institute (retired Nov 2017, still active), Department of
Neuroscience, and head of The Experimental Dermatology Unit, has a long
background in the neurosciences and has coauthored – together with his
supervisor professor Tomas Hökfelt and many others, including Nobel
Laureates – up to the presentation of his doctoral thesis 143 original
papers, reviews, book chapters and conference abstracts, a publication
record hard to beat! His doctoral thesis at the Karolinska Institute was
entitled ”Peptide Neurons in the Central and Peripheral Nervous System. Light and Electron Microscopic Studies”.
Olle Johansson has participated in more
than 300 congresses, symposia and meetings as an invited speaker, and
with free contributions and as an invited ’observer’ at an additional
200. His studies have been widely recognized in the public media,
including newspapers, radio and TV as well as on the Internet, both
nationally as well as internationally, and he is a regular interview
guest in magazines, journals, tabloids and newspapers, as well as in
radio shows, TV programmes and in the Internet-based news blogs and
