The Influence of Being Physically Near to a Cell Phone Transmission Mast on the Incidence of Cancer-- A german study using the personal data of almost 1,000 patients.
"The result of the study shows that the proportion of newly developing cancer cases was significantly higher among those patients who had lived during the past ten years at a distance of up to 400 metres from the cellular transmitter site, which has been in operation since 1993, compared to those patients living further away, and that the patients fell ill on average 8 years earlier. In the years 1999-2004, ie after five years’ operation of the transmitting installation, the relative risk of getting cancer had trebled for the residents of the area in the proximity of the installation compared to the inhabitants of Naila outside the area."
Abstract: Following the call by Wolfram König, President of the Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz (Federal Agency for radiation protection), to all doctors of medicine to collaborate actively in the assessment of the risk posed by cellular radiation, the aim of our study was to examine whether people living close to cellular transmitter antennas were exposed to a heightened risk of taking ill with malignant tumors.The basis of the data used for the survey were PC files of the case histories of patients between the years 1994 and 2004. While adhering to data protection, the personal data of almost 1,000 patients were evaluated for this study, which was completed without any external financial support. It is intended to continue the project in the form of a register. The result of the study shows that the proportion of newly developing cancer cases was significantly higher among those patients who had lived during the past ten years at a distance of up to 400 metres from the cellular transmitter site, which has been in operation since 1993, compared to those patients living further away, and that the patients fell ill on average 8 years earlier. In the years 1999-2004, ie after five years’ operation of the transmitting installation, the relative risk of getting cancer had trebled for the residents of the area in the proximity of the installation compared to the inhabitants of Naila outside the area.

Mobile Phone Masts and Wireless Computing By Alasdair and Jean Philips
The mobile phone industry, the operators and their supportive infrastructure, are continually changing and new facilities are being offered to phone users. New wireless developments are being rolled out across our towns and cities, expanding our exposure to environmental electrosmog. Research into the potential adverse health effects of radiofrequency from all these sources is producing new, often inconclusive and contradictory, information at a rapid rate. This book attempts to paint a picture that represents current thinking we believe to be correct at the time of production. It does not pretend to be, nor can it be, comprehensive.
A breif document by Michael Helming of Micro-ondes
A mobile mast in close vicinity of a property can lead to a loss of up to 50% of the property’s value. For example if you can see directly from bedroom, living room etc. onto the antenna. The BGH (Federal Supreme Court) speaks in its decision on 30th March 2006 (V ZB 17/06) very openly about the substantial loss of value for residential flats with a mobile mast on the building’s roof.A survey of the Ring deutscher Makler (an association of Germany’s estate agents) amongst 600 members came to the result, that the loss in value can be up to 50%. And even someone who isn’t worried about his health might get into trouble, for example if the sweet home isn’t completely paid for, yet. Bankers think about asking for additional proof of assets/ collateral. Reduced property values means reduced real estate taxes for cities and councils, too...
A classic, well thought out document by Dr GJ Hyland, attacking the fundamental problems in logic behind the constructed thermal/non-thermal dichotomy used to protect the telecoms industry. Hyland concludes "It can hardly be disputed that to enjoy an acceptable quality of life requires more than simply an absence of terminal disease. Adverse health effects in humans of the kinds already consistently reported worldwide – such as headaches, sleep disruption, impairment of short–term memory, etc. - whilst maybe not life-threatening in themselves, do nevertheless have a debilitating effect that undoubtedly undermines the general well-being of those affected, and which in the case of some children could well undermine their neurological and academic development. It should, of course, be stressed that the apparent absence to date of life threatening adverse effects on a global scale attributable to exposure to GSM or TETRA Base-station radiation is no guarantee of immunity in the long-term. For exposure to this kind of radiation is still in its ‘early days’ in comparison to the much longer (10-15 years) latency period of the kinds of cancers that could well be promoted or initiated in certain people."
