PHONE MASTS SET TO INCREASE WHILE HEALTH FEARS GROW

I thought people might feel encouraged by the publication of my letter in Februarys edition of a local Brighton newsletter.

PHONE MASTS SET TO INCREASE WHILE HEALTH FEARS GROW

Those of you who have heard that a phone mast is planned for the bottom of Davey Drive will be interested to read the following from a fellow resident.

Communities having recently prevented phone masts in Portland Road, New Church Road, The Drive and Fiveways would do well to observe the secrecy and repeated applications employed by Vodafone (Argus December 13) in installing a phone mast on Intergen House in Hove - tactics used by telecom companies nationwide.

On its website Mast Sanity ( //www.mastsanity.org ) lists eighteen of what it estimates to be thousands of ill health clusters - mostly cancer, epilepsy, strokes and tumours - up to 500 metres radius from phone masts, whilst the proliferation of microwave technology - cell phones, 3G, wireless computers,WLANs, bluetooth, burglar alarms, baby monitors, TETRA etc - runs rampant.

Chairman of the Russian National Committee for defense from nonionizing radiation Professor Yuri Grigoriev, recently attributed the sevenfold increase in the deaths of Russian teenagers since 1993 to mouth, brain and ear cancers almost entirely to cell phone use.

The Freiburger, Nalia, Bamberger, Salford and Californian studies all detail serious adverse health effects from microwave exposure and appeal for new safety legislation to protect people. Dr Salford of Lund University, Sweden, recently stated brain damage from intensive mobile use and domestic DECT phones in homes was "a probability rather than a possibility".

In 2001, the European Parliament Research Group recommended that all EU states ban children under 16 from using cell phones. This is recommended by the UK Department of Health, though not widely publicised despite advice from the Governments ex official adviser Sir William Stewart that under 16s only use cell phones in emergencies.and who described current marketing of cell phones to eight year olds as "grotesque".

The currently unfurling 3G system will require 16 times more masts than the current (GSM) one and be 30 times more powerful. But with telecom companies paying the Government £23 billion for 3G frequencies and their requirement for 80% UK mast coverage by 2007, are either likely to raise the alarm?

On March 10th, Brighton and Hove Council passed a Motion calling on the Government to suspend further mast installations, decommission existing ones in sensitive locations (within 500 metres of hospitals, schools, retirement homes and residential areas) pending further research, and to fully democratise the planning process for all masts - all requested by Sir William Stewart long ago.

That every mast refusal by the Council carries a risk of £17,000 costs being awarded against it by Government planning inspectors could conceivably explain Planning Committee Vice Chair Roy Pennington and Chair Bob Carden always passing mast applications when holding the casting votes, but not their voting against the abovementioned Council Motion.

Nor can it explain Pennington's intention (Argus August 25) to set up a Committee to alleviate peoples fears about phone masts and who has previously accused mast campaigners of "scaremongering" (The Argus, Jan 2005).
