Do Cell Sites Pose Health Risks?

One common assumption to signal is it channels health risks to an individual. While this claim might be true in some studies, but not with Cell Sites. Do Cell Sites really affect human health?

With my last post about ODAS, I mentioned there that cell sites do not really affect health risks to human beings according to World Health Organization (WHO).

The study conducted with WHO( Yes, one of the trusted organizations) concluded that Radio frequency signals from cell sites do not actually pose any health effects.

In line with the results, the Globe Head of Network Technologies Strategy, Emmanuel Estrada, these signals from cell sites were classified as non-ionizing radiation. Which means, technically, in laymans term, Non-Ionizing radiation is series of energy waves that don't carry enough energy per quantum to ionize atoms.

On the other side of the coin, ionizing radiation affects health just like x-rays, UV rays, and Gamma rays which chemically break DNAs(ouch).

Estrada stated that:
"Based on studies conducted by WHO, the world’s most trusted authority in health issues, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak radio frequency signals from cell sites or base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects".
But according to International Agency for Research on Cancer, these cellphones could emit radiation that could hard the human beings. It is stated that phone that located on weak signal doubles to get signal and thus give off more radiation.
