Voicing fears through drama

Claudia Calleja

Actors mimic the fears of the citizens of Hortiatis Hill who are concerned about the health risks caused by the antennas.

A Greek couple discovered their son had cancer and when the child recovered and they realised it was the result of exposure to radiation of mobile phone antennas they left their home town.

This is not a true story but, the theme of one in a series of short plays that echoed the real concerns of the citizens of Hortiatis Hill, in Thessaloniki, that is at the centre of controversy over health hazards posed by electromagnetic antennas installed on site.

The MCA published the results of tests that it conducts on all such repeaters. However, they only say that the level is well within the established limits and do not give the measured field strength, not do they give the distance at which the measurements were taken and neither whether it is at street level or at rooftop level. What is the level of radiation that the people living next door are being exposed while on the roof? Is any tilt in the radiation pattern used and if so what is the angle? Is it different for different repeaters? What is the maximum power used at the repeaters when all channels are in use? What is the gain of the antennas? Whay is such information being hidden from the public?

"As for the EU, it has advised governments to protect those living close to transmitters by setting safety provisions."

Please can we have some more information about the harmful effects of such antennas. It is not something to be brushed off as of minor importance. I am truly concerned and would appreciate any body who would exert pressure to have them set up away from inhabited areas.

Some hope in our congested tiny island!!!

But let's do our best.

We are playing with our lives here. Let's do something about it before it is too late!!!!!!!!

Hi Martin,

I sent the following message, hope they post it.

All the best


Your article states that in 2006, the World Health Organisation concluded there was “no convincing scientific evidence” that weak signals from base stations and wireless networks caused adverse health effects. Please take a look at the enclosed pie chart which was taken from the WHO website, this was presented at a workshop at the EU Commission, 10 out of 14 peer-reviewed studies on base stations found significant increases in symptoms and conform to WHO standards of scientific quality. http://www.buergerwelle.de/pdf/who_and_pubmed_epidemiological_studies_on_base_stations_2006.pdf

Plus a new peer reviewed Swiss study by Frei has shown that mobile phone masts exposure resulted in 32% exposure and mobile phones amounted to 29%, Dect cordless phone base stations 23%. This new study is very worrying as it demonstrates mobile phone masts expose the public to more radiation than mobile phones. You can choose to use a mobile, but what do you do if you live near a mast?

An international working group of scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals produced the 2007 BioInitiative report. The report provides detailed scientific information on health impacts when people are exposed to electromagnetic radiation hundreds or even thousands of times below the guidelines. The authors reviewed more than 2000 scientific studies and concluded that the existing public safety limits are inadequate to protect public health.

I suffered for many years with headaches, sleep problems and dizzy spells and was eventually diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 38. I discovered that I was living in a cancer cluster. I was living 100m from a phone mast and now understand that we are not alone as many other cancer clusters have been discovered around phone masts worldwide.

I would recommend the Church ensure that the mobile phone companies indemnify them from any future court actions that may result from the current situation whereby mobile phone masts are located on their property.
