(Continued)
Metaphorically speaking, I was "dragged into" the realm of Cell Tower battles by a pair of gentle grey-haired grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Hoy, who were concerned about the safety of their granddaughter.

Mr. & Mrs. Hoy advised me that their grand-daughter was soon to enter an elementary school in Bayville, New York, a Village which had allowed the installation of more than 50 cell antennas atop a water tower just 50 feet from its only elementary school.

They further explained that, after the antennas went up, as many as 30% of the staff at the school had contracted cancer or other illnesses, that five children had developed leukemia, and three of them had died.

Under the circumstances, I saw no choice but to try to help them. By speaking with others who lived in the Village, I learned that the property
at issue had been donated to the Village in 1950, subject to a restriction that the property not be used for "commercial enterprises." The position of the Village, and its attorneys, was that enforcement of that restrictive covenant was pre-empted by the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

I filed a federal lawsuit against five of the largest wireless companies in the world, seeking a federal court order, requiring them to remove all of the antennas. The case remains pending in the United States District Court, in the Eastern District of New York.

After a New York City television station ran a story about the case, I began receiving communications from around the world, concerning cancer clusters around Cell Towers.




My Call Into the Cell Tower Battle
Almost immediately, I learned about a similar case in Australia, where a Cell Tower was installed only 90 feet from a school. Within 7 years of its installation, 50% of the school staff had become ill, 25% with cancer, and 25% with other illnesses.

As I looked further, I learned that cancer clusters around Cell Towers have been documented all over the world, and that, as a result, countries (other than the United States) began banning Cell Towers near schools, and in some cases, physically tearing them down after they had already been built.

I also received a telephone call from a research scientist at Princeton University.

That scientist advised me that the FCC had adopted standards for what types and levels of RF radiation it deemed "safe" for public exposure.
