  • Now Mumbai facing Radiation 

    05 August, 2008, A recent study conducted by Cogent EMR Solutions has revealed that the electromagnetic radiations emitted from phone towers in Mumbai are way beyond safety levels.

    According to the study, the safe limit of radiations for human beings is up to 50 microwatts per square meter and the upper limit is 100 microwatts per square meter.

    The study revealed that the highest readings are from South Bombay, Vidhan Sabha and Nariman Point, while other areas like Cuffe Parade, Breach Candy Hospital, Lower Parel, Bandstand and Versova also recorded high readings.

    The radiation readings in the residences in these areas were more than 1000 microwatts per square centimeters.

    “High density of population and demanding customers for mobile services is the cause. Mumbai is the financial capital of India, and the economy runs greatly on the activities of Mumbai. People need good services,” said Zafar Haq, CEO, Cogent EMR Solutions.

    Mumbai has witnessed a spurt in the number of phone towers in the recent past exposing people to dangerously high levels of radiations.

    Being exposed to such radiation, this leads to problems like loss of appetite, irritation, fatigue, difficulty in concentrating, headaches, problems in vision, infertility and deformity of foetus. Medical experts feel it is a ‘slow and invisible killer’.

    “If you are using a headset or hands free close to your ear while talking or people put it in their pockets, the radiation is directly affecting this tissue and because it is heating up, even though very minimally, the cellular tissue is being heated,” said Dr Pratima Rajan, Department of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Preventive Cardiology, Jaslok Hospital.

    So while technology invasion has happened at a rapid pace in India, stringent laws are still to be in place against the risks that they come with.

    “There are norms in the western world that within 50 mtrs of a mobile tower, there should be no residential area. But, in India, most of the technology came from the West and was adopted by the businessmen who do not know much about technology,” said Professor Girish Kumar, IIT-Bombay.

    After years of research, products like radiation shields, which absorb up to 50 percent of radiation, are available in the market, but they are surely not enough.
