    Maybe we should all forfeit our cellphones and the internet because they are damaging the safety and welfare of our entire country. Apparently anyone who is on here Is OK with modern technology. We just don't want those towers in our own backyards, but dammit, if I don't get cellphone reception I am pissed. We want cellphone towers, just not where anyone can see them, but we build houses everywhere and anywhere so where do you suggest we put them?

    Well I wouldnt build my house next to a sewer plant. Or garbage disposal place, or power plant lol. Id want to at least be in a 10 mile radius away from one. I'm sure a lot of people would. Some simply can not afford a house with that luxury though, forcing them to move beside a less appealing place.. such as these. I am proudly OK with modern technology and with the technology we have today, we can simply make satellites or alternatives for our cell service instead of taking up ridiculous spaces lol. However, my country seems too lazy to do it.

    Of course technology isnt going anywhere. But we do need to be smart about it and about how we employ it. Common sense applies. I would never willingly move close to or allow something I believed to have potential to cause harm close to me and my family. Its just smart. We don't know what we don't know yet and if you look at the increase of technology, its going up like a rocket. There is bound to be consequences eventually.

    It is up to the company at hand to figure out where to put them. Not me. Id just rather it wasnt nearby.

    Well if I had the choice of being on my property and getting 800 bucks a month, or being right next door and getting nothing. Seems like a no brainer. But then again I'm the guy that got a great deal on lots of land near a nuke power plant. For some reason property values arnt very high here. Whats funny though is the nuke plant is only about 4 miles from a good size city, yet across a river. I am on the same side of the river and about 20 miles away, but all the city people look at my area with disdane because it is near the nuke plant.

    I am all for satellite also. There is no reason not to have cell service when we can do satellite. Think of all the lives that could be saved when people need help out in the middle of nowhere with no cell service. Ok back to the original question.

    Joe that would scare me to death lol...I live about oh...maybe 50 miles as the bird flies from Oak Ridge and that is scary enough. Is meltdown likely? No of course not, but in the event something did happen even a natural disaster type event, you'd be driven out of your home like all the ppl who can't go back to Chernobyl and the areas around the reactor in Japan. Its just gone for a very long time.

    Can you post some evidence of this? I've never heard this before. How do they pose major health risks? There are cell towers near major cities, I wouldn't think they would put them there if they posed a risk.

    (Genuinely curious, not trying to be snappy lol)

    Would I knowingly put myself or critters near something like that? Nope. Would I allow it on an outer edge of a big area? Maybe. It depends. But its still something we should keep in mind. We poisen our air land and water in many ways. How much can we get away with bombarding our bodies with and not suffer some sort of consequences someday realistically? It makes sense to avoid as many risk factors as possible IMO.

    Someday will only come with time. I personally havent seen people have cancerous builds off the sides of their faces due to cell phones. But someday I wouldnt be surprised. I guess that will be the fate of 99% of the American public.

    I have known two people now that have had surgery for tumors on the auditory nerve (I think it was?). One is a good friend of mine that now has a super cool box that plugs into his head so he can hear on that side still. Without it he has lost his hearing in that ear. Idk. I think we might already be seeing some issues. It just depends on how fast they connect the dots.
