Dr. Rodney Croft, a specialist from the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) organization, gave a brief talk at the Philippine Telecoms Summit 2017 last Thursday, aiming to set the record straight that cell towers are not detrimental to the health of homeowners, according to the Inquirer.net.

Croft is advertised as an expert on the delineation of human brain function as affected by agents such as radiation or drugs, and outlined the extensive studies conducted by ICNIRP and the safety guidelines that have resulted from their gathered data. He is Professor of Health Psychology at the School of Psychology, University of Wollongong, Australia, was Executive Director of the Australian Centre for Radiofrequency Bioeffects Research (2004-2011) and is currently Director of the Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research.

ICNIRP guidelines establish basic safety limits determining the lowest value of radio frequency (RF) radiation that would affect human health, establishing there has been no recorded evidence of adverse effects from being near a cell tower.

Additionally, the Inquirer.net reported, the construction of more cell towers within a given area will not have a cumulative effect with regards to RF radiation emitted. In other words, RF radiation will still remain negligibly low despite the number of cell towers.
