Cell Phone Tower: A Gift or Curse
A. Yuvarani | R. Latha 
Abstract: Cell phone towers form an important component of the cell phone network. Cell phones and cell phone towers send signals using radio frequency (RF) energy, or radiation, just like radio, television, papers and other wireless communication devices. Radio frequency (RF) waves are a subset of electromagnetic waves with a wavelength of 100km to 1mm, which is a frequency of 3 KHz to 300 GHz. A cell phone tower is typically a steel pole or lattice structure that rises hundreds of feet into the air. These towers also called base stations. Cell phone towers pave the way for hazardous effects from RF waves to the human health. In general, all of us must keep in mind that the human body is an electrical system. It will be, and is affected by, outside RF energy fields that can promote unwanted nerve stimulation, cancer, heating effects, and many other unwanted effects. Cell phone tower will be a gift if we are following the safeguard systems, if not it will become a curse to our life.
