Cell Towers and hidden "stealth" antennas are cropping up all over, despite vehement objections from community members. Health & safety questions arise, but are often dismissed by the very people entrusted to protect community welfare - planners and zoners - who have been told they cannot consider such questions. But safety concerns about radio frequency radiation (called RF) used in all wireless technology, spans decades. Those concerns have yet to be resolved despite our increasing exposures. "Cell Towers" cuts through the rhetoric to address the complex issues of low-level RF. With chapters contributed by prominent research scientists, government officials, engineers, and attorneys, the book is the most comprehensive and balanced resource available for lay people today. Questions answered include: Are the health concerns justified? What does the science really say? What are the roles of the lead government agencies: EPA & FCC? Are the RF exposure standards reliable? Are they current? What are other countries doing? Are humans the only concern? What about millions of birds killed annually when they collide with towers? 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?

We quote the following endorsements: "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 an 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, San Antonio, Tx and Pettit Memorial VA Hospital, Loma Linda CA
"The continued proliferation of this radiation constitutes one of the most significant alterations of the natural environment, with the possibility of major impacts on human health. Ms. Levitt's compilation of the presentations of the Cell Towers Forum - along with additional scientific evidence, up-tp-date regulatory provisions, and abstracts of pertinent legal decisions - is unbiased, authoritative and represents the opinions of recognized experts in the bioeffects of electromagnetic radiation. This book should be required reading for all planning boards, environmental groups, and concerned citizens." -Robert O, Becker, M.D., Biomedical sciences consultant; author of "The Body Electric" and "Cross Currents."About the Author:
