However COAI and AUSPI have roped in eminent doctors and tech academicians from Indian Institute of Madras (IITM) and Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Madurai in order to confirm that the towers do not pose any risk.

The AUSPI secretary general, S C Khanna, said that the fear of health risk by cellphone towers is a myth. "It is pertinent to note that RF exposure of the public started many years ago when radio, television came into being, however no long term effects have been observed so far", he said.

There is too much money to be lost, if the government comes out with the truth. Cell phones do cause cancer. Some governments, such as Sweeden, Austria etc... schools and childrens day cares have banned towers close by. Rates of tumours in heavy users have grown. Cell phone industry is paying agencies to say the use is safe.
