Worries about radiation have been persistent since the dawn of the cell phone era. But decades of scientific research have not established a firm connection between cell towers and health issues.
“For people on the ground, exposure to radio frequency from cell phones, held against the ear, is far greater than from cell towers,” McCormick says.
McCormick goes on to state that even 30 meters away from a tower, children's exposure to RF would be "almost zero."
