Firstly, I highly commend your recent letter writer from Golden regarding the proposed French Creek cell tower. She made educated and valid comments relating to the dangers of cell phone tower exposure.
Secondly, I am embarrassed by the response submitted in a follow-up letter by David Sheppard and his lack of respect for another opinion. His obvious angst relates to a fear that he may not receive a strong enough cell phone signal. Talking on the telephone is obviously a priority over a healthy life.
The extreme health issues related to cell tower radiation have been documented for years, particularly in the European countries. Unfortunately for us, the Canadian government is years behind, especially with regard to long-term research. The radiation affects human beings, animals, and all living things.
Sheppard would be advised to study Internet sites for more information and education. These include: anticelltowerlawyers.com and he should view the Canadian Cellular Towers Map. It is shocking, but Sheppard may find it extremely pleasing.
