Do cell towers really have harmful effects for people staying within 100 meters?

The 'jury is still out' on this one. However - you need to remember - mobile phone towers use radio waves in the 'microwave' portion of the electromagnetic spectrum - the same microwaves you use to cook your food. Prolonged exposure to high frequencies are suspected of causing tissue damage.

More research needs to be done to give a definitive answer.
