Put Cell Towers In Graveyards Not Schoolyards

This petition had 184 supporters

If it wasn't so sad it would almost be comical to see massive metal cell phone towers casting shadows over elementary school playgrounds (and hospitals). Every cell tower in these areas represents an utter lack of concern for generations of children, families, and communities as a whole by cellular/wireless corporations.

What many in the medical and scientific community have warned of for years is now coming to the surface in scientific studies. A study released last month (Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure) titled "Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences" lists the immediate and long term dangers for children. In addition, children's brains have a higher sensitivity to the accumulation of the adverse effects of chronic exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). Correlations have been made between radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMF) field exposure in children and disruption in memory, decline in attention, diminishing learning and cognitive abilities, increased irritability, and higher disease rates.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the United Nations' World Health (WHO) lists RF-EMF as a possible 2B carcinogen. In this list of 2B carcinogens that also contains lead, DDT, pesticides, chloroform, and gasoline fumes, cell phone towers are the only item that is allowed to continuously bathe communities across the United States and the world.

We the undersigned of this document strongly urge Sprint and its management to lead the wireless and cellular phone corporate sector in a public pledge to remove all cell towers from school property, playgrounds, and all other locations that children and kids commonly gather in communities. Perhaps graveyards will be more appropriate locations to place towers. We The People are not as concerned about the health of the individuals who reside those locations.
