Vertical Bridge is the company that placed the cellular telephone tower at 3610 Evans Mill Road, Stonecrest, GA 30038 (click
here for information about Vertical Bridge).
Vertical Bridge CEO Alex Gellman speaks about "Network Construction Brings Forth A Renaissance For Towers" (aglmediagroup.com,February,
"People don't want to live next to one not just because of health concerns, but also due to aesthetics and public safety
reasons, i.e., cell towers become eyesores, obstructing or tarnishing cherished views, and also can attract crime, are potential
noise nuisances, and fire and fall hazards.
These points underscore why wireless facilities are commercial facilities that don't belong in residential areas, parks
and schools, and find out why they should be placed in alternative, less obtrusive locations. In addition, your city officials
have the power to regulate the placement and appearance of cell towers, as long as such discrimination is not unreasonable,
and especially if you show them that you already have coverage in your area." (Retrieved from https://sites.google.com/site/nocelltowerinourneighborhood/home/decreased-real-estate-value)

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 contains important provisions concerning the placement of towers and other facilities for
use in providing personal wireless services. Most state and local communities have worked closely with cellular and other
wireless service providers on such placement plans, but this new law establishes new responsibilities for communities and
for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The rapid expansion in the wireless industry makes these issues even more

A basic guide to EMFs
"There is clear and strong evidence that intensive use of cell phones increases the risk of brain cancer, tumors of the
auditory nerve and cancer of the parotid gland, the salivary gland in the cheek by the ear.
The WHOs International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified the radiation from both cell phones and cell towers
as a Class 2B;Possible Carcinogen; in 2011. Cell towers use similar radiofrequency radiation as cell phones (in the 1.8 to
5.0 GHz range).
The difference between a cell phone and a cell tower environment, however, is that while the cell phone is used only intermittently,
and at higher power, a cell tower environment is continuous, serving many people at the same time. Cell towers direct their
beam in all directions, such that anyone nearby is continuously exposed to radiofrequency radiation. While the intensity is
much less than one would receive holding a cell phone to your head, the emissions from a cell tower are continuous. Thus the
aggregate exposure over time coming from being close to a cell tower can be very significant.
A child in a school with a nearby cell tower will be exposed every moment he or she is at school. Thus there is a particular
concern when a cell tower is place near to a school." (University at Albany Institute for Health and the Environment,
University at Albany Institute for Health and the Environment
"A study by Dr. Bruce Hocking in Australia found that children living near three TV and FM broadcast towers (similar
to cell towers) in Sydney had more than twice the rate of leukemia than children living more than seven miles away.
Says Dr. Neil Cherry, a biophysicist at Lincoln University in New Zealand:
"Public health surveys of people living in the vicinity of cell site base stations should be being carried out now,
and continue progressively over the next two decades. This is because prompt effects such as miscarriage, cardiac disruption,
sleep disturbance and chronic fatigue could well be early indicators of the adverse health effects. Symptoms of reduced immune
system competence, cardiac problems, especially of the arrhythmic type, and cancers, especially brain tumor and leukemia,
are probable."" (Reference: SixWise. (2009). What are the Dangers of Living Near Cell Phone Towers? Retrieved from

"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." (Environmental Health Trust, 2019)

1. Children's brains are way smaller, so it affects us way more. And we have more water in children's brains so electromagnetic
radiation is conducted faster and stronger.
"Of particular significance for children are studies which indicate that children absorb more radiation in the brain
than adults which may indicate a greater risk of brain tumours."
"A two-minute cell phone call alters a childs brain function for an hour."
(Source: The child scrambler - What a mobile can do to a youngsters brain in 2
minutes, UK Sunday Mirror, April 1, 2004.)
2. Cell phones have up to 2.4 ghz frequency, but wireless can have up to 6 ghz frequency. But scientists say it is not
the frequency that is so important, but the second carrier wave (the information carrying radio wave - ICRW) and the fact
that it is pulsed, that is the main health problem. All these countries have banned wifi in schools, why can't we?
"The Public Health Department of Salzburg has warned that WiFi should not be put in schools or nurseries. The Austrian
Medical Association is lobbying against the deployment of WiFi in schools."
"The Bavarian Parliament has recommended that no schools in the province use wireless LAN networks. The Frankfurt
City Government said that it would not install WiFi in its schools until it had been shown to be harmless."
"Professor Johansson at the Department of Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm has sent a letter
advising against the use of WiFi to Swedish School Governors."
3. Children absorb more radiation than adults, so the risk for kids is much higher than for adults.
"The Stewart Report (2000) states that children absorb more energy per Kg of body weight from an external electromagnetic
field than do adults."
"A 5 year old will absorb around 60% more than an adult."
"Exposures in bone marrow may be up to ten times greater in children than adults." (Microwave news, 2008, 22nd
4. Radiation disturbs our learning and damages our brain function.
"Scientists have discovered that a call lasting just two minutes aon a cell phone can alter the natural electrical
activity of a child's brain for up to an hour afterwards.
And they also found for the first time how radio waves from mobile phones penetrate deep into the brain and not just around
The study by Spanish scientists has prompted leading medical experts to question whether it is safe for children to use
mobile phones at all.
Doctors fear that disturbed brain activity in children could lead to psychiatric and behavioural problems or impair learning
It was the first time that human guinea pigs were used to measure the effects of mobile phone radiation on children. The
tests were carried out on an 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl called Jennifer."
