The table compares the key characteristics of four types of residential or commercial small cell installations – Microcell, Metrocell, Picocell, Femtocell with two types of DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems).
Since much of the US population is unwisely bathing itself 24/7/365 in data-carrying, pulsed, Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR), it is important to understand what we are actually doing to ourselves, our loved ones and our environment.
Duration of exposure to these micro-second pulses of electrical power, not intensity, is the most important factor. -S4WT
Cell Towers and Cell Antennae mounted on buildings have radio frequency emissions. The closer you are to the antennae, the more radiofrequency radiation you are exposed to. Cell tower radiation exposure is different than cell phone exposure in that a cell phone to the head focuses an extremely high amount of radiation to a specific brain region. Cell tower emissions are at lower levels than cell phones. However, with cell tower exposure, the exposure is non- stop day and night and full body exposure.
A significant body of peer reviewed research has found harmful effects from cell tower radiation. Read the peer reviewed research here.
People living or working in close vicinity to a cell tower will get the highest exposures. People sleeping in homes with windows facing antennas will have more nighttime exposure. A phone can be turned off but a cell tower cannot be. Many governments and local juristictions have halted the placement of cell towers and cell antennae near schools and residences because of the higher density of radiation in the close vicinity to cell antennas.

“Filed through his lawyer Noor Alam Khan, Naeem contended that antennas and other communication equipment installed on mobile phone towers flood the air with high-frequency radio waves —known as microwaves — which can have harmful effects on human health.”
