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."
