Call to harm goes up as Dadar Matunga residents urged to fight mobile phone tower radiation problems; ire and fire marks three-hour long meet on issue
(Mumbai) It was dial R for radiation and rage on Sunday, April 28 morning as residents from the Dadar, Wadala and Matunga areas came together to protest, learn and listen to views of people. These experts and activists were citing possible hazards posed by radiation from the antennae of mushrooming mobile phone towers on buildings at the leafy, green Dadar Parsi Colony and adjoining areas.
The aim was to educate, inform and frankly as activists stated, awaken citizens and residents into action so that they join the movement against cell phone towers. Currently, medical opinion, seems to be cleaved into two, there are doctors who cite ‘inconclusive medical evidence’ about the effect of cell tower radiation (there are hospitals in the city which have a cell phone tower on their terrace) to others who say that effects may lead to cancer and a host of other illnesses. The meet was held under the aegis of the Forum Against Cell Tower Radiation (F.A.C.T.) Dadar-Matunga.
