Are Cell Towers Harmful?

Episode 1617 (43:04)

Theresa from Westminster, CO
Cell Tower

Theresa has been hearing about 5G and recently found out they're getting a new cell tower in her neighborhood. Is living near a cell tower safe? Leo says absolutely, there's no real issue with radiation: it's a myth. It's also really small, and the energy of radiation decreases exponentially as it gets farther away from the tower. So there's no need to worry. But the big challenge of 5G is that it requires more towers. The real evidence is, that it's harmless. Think about how often you hold a cellphone to your head: there's simply not enough energy to do any damage. Anyone can say anything online, doesn't make it true. Could it decrease home value? Well, that depends on perception.
