In a report presented by a 13-member committee constituted by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), it’s concluded that the mobile tower radiation is harmless. India has has adopted ten times more stringent measures than the International Commission on Non Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), which account for thermal and non-thermal effects, said the report. “Radio frequency fields are among the most highly researched potential hazards. There are thousands of papers in literature and… Read More

Originally published in Money Control: “A number of judgments delivered by the High Courts in Gujarat, Kerala, Allahabad, Delhi and Himachal Pradesh have ruled that there is no conclusive evidence to prove that EMF radiation emitted from mobile towers has adverse effects on health. Thus, they cannot potentially harm humans,” TRAI Advisor (B&CS) Agneshwar Sen said. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) experts have claimed that radiation from electro-magnetic fields (EMF) of… Read More

Wi-Fi is not a new technology; rather, Wi-Fi is a new twist on an old technology: transmitting information via the radio frequency (RF). Humans have been broadcasting radio and microwave transmissions across the planet for over a century. As… Read More

Radio frequency radiation from mobile towers and phones is minuscule—one-thousandth to one-millionth of an eV! It means mobile tower radiation is lakhs of times weaker than X-rays or UV rays, even visible light. Radiation. The very word is like a bell tolling—ringing in irrational concern and conjuring images of Chernobyl or Fukushima. So, when we hear of mobile tower antennas transmitting radio frequency radiation, concerns arise in the common man. Luckily, nothing… Read More

Alexander Graham Bell is credited with the invention of the Telephone, one of the most important inventions in modern history. But when it comes to cellular phone technology, no one person can stake claim on its invention. Cellular phone technology evolved over decades, with various scientists contributing to the process.

  Carcinogen – A Substance that causes Cancer. Substances that give rise to cell mutations which lead to tumor growth and cancer. Carcinogens are all around you and awareness is the key to avoiding this fatal disease. Our environment and many other external factors contain the majority of such carcinogenic or cancer causing substances. These elements, such as exposure to radiation, and viruses can account for 80-90% of cancer causing substances. Our… Read More
