In a latest revelation, the Interior Minister of Pakistan Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has shared a announced that mobile signals actually cause cancer. He made the shocking disclosure in a press conference on Thursday.
While addressing the media, he stated that the signal towers which are placed by the telecom companies in Pakistan are in reality a threat to the lives of the millions. Additionally, he added that these mobile signals are affecting children the most.
To support his claim, Chaudhry Nisar did not put forward any proof or research. It is pertinent to state that the signal towers are erected at various key locations like schools, universities, markets, hospitals etc. in almost all the cities across the country.
What does the researchers say about it?
There has been continuous ongoing research about mobile signals causing cancer or posing other threats to the life around. The research has now been going on for years, and plenty of established researchers have conducted studies all over the world about the issue. Quite a few have warned the people about the hazards of mobile signal towers which emit unsafe radiation.
Dr. Girish of the Indian Thermal Analysis Society conducted a research and submitted his papers in 2010 in which he stated:
“Being exposed to a mobile tower located within 50 m of your home or workplace is like being in a microwave oven for 24 hours.”
The claim could be exaggerated but the risk is very real.
It holds plenty of significance to mention that people who live in the close vicinity of a mobile tower i.e. within 50-300 meter range are generally more at risk than anyone who is residing outside this range.
Moreover, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has said this about cell phone towers near homes or schools:
“Radiofrequency emissions from antennas used for cellular and PCS [personal communications service] transmissions result in exposure levels on the ground that are typically thousands of times below safety limits. These safety limits were adopted by the FCC. They were based on the recommendations of expert organizations and endorsed by agencies of the Federal Government responsible for health and safety. Therefore, there is no reason to believe that such towers could constitute a potential health hazard to nearby residents or students”
