Over the last few years there seems to have developed a kind of hostility to anything and everything scientific. I suspect that some of this was bought on by the way that the then government handled the "mad cow" disease. The media especially certain newspapers just love to feed the more naive of us who just love any sort of crises.
which has a telephone exchange nearby, on top of which is a cluster of mobile phone masks. About ten other people work in the clinic, and nobody has ever made any comment about the masts until recently, when a patient started talking about how he felt 'ill' whenever he came for a consultation (He is ill, that's why he attends the clinic, but that's another matter), because of those 'Microwave transmitters on top of that building'.
Since that day, two of my wife's colleagues have started reporting symptoms, which they put down to the 'radio waves' coming from the masts.
I'm going to email your link to them right now - thank goodness for a ray of sanity.
Whether that fear is based on fact appears to be, more or less, irrelevant. I feel sorry for those that are convinced that something is going to harm them because such a conviction is hard to overcome.
"All in the mind - official",i think not. Not a great believer in phone masts doing much harm,but not a great believer in every study or research result either. Seems all foods have at one time been linked to cancer until more research pops up to contradict the first findings before more research turns it full circle again.If you stopped eating food with a one time cancer link,you would die of starvation long before any cells started to run amok. Question..Even those who believe it's a load of rubbish,would you move to a house with a mast very close to your chosen house? Surely a little doubt?
