Principal Michael Lee, representatives from the Governor’s Commission on Disability, and DOCTORS W.A.R.N., comprised of 90 local health care professionals, are all greatly concerned about the microwave radiation effects on children of a tower to close to Gonzales Community School.

But only your voices and the objections of parents can stop this from happening. Call Burger King's toll free number: 1-866-394-2493.

A new federal law allows cell tower companies (AT& T, Mobile, Sprint, etc.) to radiate unlimited levels of radio and microwave radiation once this tower is built, despite the work of the Santa Fe City Council in passing a more protective ordinance last November 2011.

You have a chance to stop this tower before it is built. You have a chance to protect the children and staff at this school before the tower is approved. Once built, the contract is for thirty years.

The World Health Organization classifies cell tower radiation, also called electromagnetic fields (EMF) and radiation (EMR), as a Class 2B: Possible Human Carcinogen along with “Chloroform, DDT, Engine exhaust, Fuel oils, Gasoline, Human immunodeficiency virus type 2...”

PEDIATRICS, Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics (2005), research study warns of the dangers to children from RF cell tower radiation:

“Concerns about the potential vulnerability of children to radio frequency (RF) fields have been raised because of the potentially greater susceptibility of their developing nervous systems; in addition, their brain tissue is more conductive, RF penetration is greater relative to head size, and they will have a longer lifetime of exposure than adults.”
