Question: A few community activists have been protesting a 50 foot cell phone tower going up in the area. While there have been debates over whether cell phone towers cause health-related problems, there's been no conclusive evidence. However, are you worried that they are harmful or do you dismiss the speculation as an urban myth? Why?
|"I heard they cause brain tumors due to radioactive waves from the cell phone. And that is actually not speculation."
- Amirah Awwad, Canarsie"Yes, I do believe the waves from a cell phone tower are dangerous. When I use my cell phone for a long time, sometimes it gives me a headache."
- Christopher Giotis, Marine Park"I'm not saying it's a myth - because I really don't know. But there are more important things going on in the country besides cell phone towers. And Americans are much too concerned about technology."
- Denise Brown, Canarsie"I don't think it's a problem. Put up the cell phone towers. What they are saying needs more proof. It's probably just a myth."
