Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

"Verizon shill"? I'm someone concerned about the anti-science movement progressing in the public. You only prove my point concerning the irrational paranoia of the anti-cell tower group.

Re: “Concerned Parents Press On Against Verizon Tower

The unscientific/conspiracy theorist mindset is getting out of control. Now the Source Weekly, under this author Laurel Brauns, is presenting/defending this point of view. These "concerned parents" are the same overly emotional, insensible people who believe the Earth is flat, vaccines cause autism, and now that cell phone towers cause cancer.

The American Cancer Society, along with a plethora of scientific papers, have demonstrated the safety of cell towers: (https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancer-causes/radiation-exposure/cellular-phone-towers.html). As a person who earned a degree in physics, I can say that the Sun's UV light does far more skin damage than cell towers could ever possibly inflict. This article does not present the scientific voice on the issue; it presents the view point of scientifically uneducated soccer moms and their irrational paranoia regarding cell phone towers.

Would these parents ever dare tell a surgeon how to perform heart surgery? No, they would immediately understand their ignorance regarding open-heart surgery. Yet, when it comes to electromagnetic physics, biological physics, and electrical engineering, these "concerned parents" somehow feel justified to voice their uneducated opinion on the issue. The Source, this author, Bend, and the U.S. for that matter, all need to carefully analyse whether they support objective, scientific information or emotional, lazy, and insensible frames of mind.
