Cell Tower Lease ExpertsOne of the most highly debated issues regarding cell towers is whether or not these towers produce carcinogens or cancer causing substances.  According to the American Cancer Society, the energy levels of radio-frequency (or RF waves) are typically thousands of times below the safety limits adopted by the FCC. The RF waves can only be concentrated to about an inch or two in size, which makes it unlikely that the energy from the waves could affect individual cells in the body.

Due to the aforementioned reasons, most scientists believe cell phone towers and their antennas do not cause cancer. In addition to this, the three expert agencies that classify carcinogens, the I-A-R-C, NTP and the EPA have not classified cell phone towers as potentially cancer causing.  All of the information shared today can be found at the American Cancer Society’s website at www.cancer.org.
