Interior Minister of State Chaudhry Nisar in a press conference stated that mobile phone signals cause cancer. He further claimed that the signal towers, which are being used by mobile phone companies are posing threat to the masses especially children. He did not come up with any sort of official research and study to back his claim.
Though, on the other hand, various researchers have conducted studies which have claimed that cellphone towers emit hazardous radiations, and those who live within 50-300 meters are more prone to its affect.
“Being exposed to a mobile tower located within 50 m of your home or workplace is like being in a microwave oven for 24 hours, states a research.”
Though we have yet not come across any plausible research or study which has dauntingly proved that cellphone towers are a menace to health, but Chaudhry Nisar reinstating it seems like a new debate starting all over in the country.
