What the rest of the world is doing plus here at home

Due to increased awareness and concern about cell-tower radiation, many communities across the country are organizing and pushing back. In 2009, the school board in Los Angeles voted to prohibit cell towers near schools. Recently, in Dekalb County, Georgia, more than 75,000 residents voted in a referendum to keep cell towers off school grounds. And, entire towns like Bar Harbor, Maine, and Hempstead, NY have followed the example of many other countries around the world who have already banned, or are in the process of banning, the installation of any cell towers within 1,500 feet of schools and child-care centers.
