    Living near a cell tower

    Lots of conflicting studies on this issue, but most seem to suggest the dangers are real.
    This vs this

    Found a house i'd really like to live in, but it's right next to a cell tower, i need some help in making a decision.

    I'd consider it just another one of the hazards of life. I'm sure there's other things you do that are also associated with similar levels of cancer risk.

    +1. I probably do things to myself that are worse for my health than a cell tower. Like smoking, and sitting at a computer for hours on end.

    There aren't, i'm actually moving to the mountains to get away from polluants, heat, disorder, ugliness and an overall carcinogenic life.

    ^what do you eat? Things you actually put into your body are the first place to look if you want to reduce your risks of cancer. Then make sure you're getting appropriate amounts of exercise and sunlight exposure. Also you have to keep stress at a minimum.

    Aw man forget about the helpin me out part, i would just really like to get people's scientific viw on how damaging cell site EM radiation is. Most studies seem BS and i have limited knowledge in that area.

    Well, just looking at the two links you provided, I've heard bad things about naturalnews before(linking autism to vaccines I believe) so I was skeptical of that one. It doesn't cite the specific studies it alludes to and its sources include some blatantly biased websites. None of them look particularly reputable either. The American Cancer Society page actually goes briefly into the scientific reasoning of how cell phone radiation might affect tumor growth, and its language is much more neutral throughout. It also has an actual bibliographic references section with case studies and reports from professional organizations rather than just a list of websites. So I'm inclined to trust the validity of the ACS page much more than the naturalnews one. I don't think cell phone radiation is a significant danger.

    The wavelengths are too long to cause actinic damage (e.g., to DNA, etc.).
