It seems like there are cell tower conspiracies popping up daily.
Let’s set the record straight on some cell tower lease myths.
Cell Towers and especially 5G are the new boogie man. In fact we have actually seen cell tower workers attached and dozens of cell towers vandalized and even burned down in Europe and the United States because. In the 1970’s it was acid rain… in the 1980’s aerosol hair spray cans were depleting the ozone layer and causing global warming, and killing polar bears… in the 1990’s SUV’s were destroying the planet… fast forward to today, the new thing that many people are afraid of is 5G technology. I’ve even seen “normal” friends on social media post things that were… I’m being kind…. “way out there”.
Many People Believe That Cell Towers Cause Cancer
- It is a common perception that the invisible radiofrequency waves emitted by cell towers can alter our cell’s DNA thus causing cancerous growths in our bodies. There are plenty of conspiracy advocates online who propagate such theories, without adequate proof. Cell towers operate on microwaves. You know, the same microwave ovens in every American household since the early 1980’s. I haven’t seen people throwing out their microwave ovens. Have you seen the boycott of microwave ovens? Me neither.
The bottom line is that no study has ever proven that cell tower cause cancer.
Cell Tower Radio Frequency (RF) Waves are Dangerous
- Did you know that your car’s alternator emits more RF energy than a cell tower? Have you ever spent 5 minutes in the sun this year? If you have you’ve just exposed yourself to more RF energy that if you sat in front of a cell tower all month. Did you have a baby monitor on all the time to listen to your infant while they are asleep? That is quite brave of you because those baby monitors emit thousands of times more RF energy than a cell tower.
Cell Towers Spy on You
- Let’s clear this one up once and for all. Cell towers do not spy on you. The government in cooperation with your cell phones and wireless carriers however do spy on you. Just google “Edward Snowden and Verizon”. That is why you should cover your cell phone’s camera when not in use, etc.. . Don’t blame cell towers, blame cell phone devices. If you don’t want to be “tracked” by the GPS device in your phone that “pings” off the nearest cell tower that you are located by, then stop using any sort of wireless device including your cell phone.
5G Cell Towers Caused COVID-19
- In order to believe that COVID-19 was caused by 5G cell towers, you also have to believe that JFK Junior, Elvis Presley and Tupac alive on a small island in the Caribbean running a surf shop for martian tourists.
Cell Tower Leases Need To Have Their Rents Reduced to Remain Viable
- A myth exists which has emerged from Southern California that landlords who do not reduce their rents significantly will have their cell towers potentially relocated in order to maintain financial viability. This cell tower leasing myth is based on science fiction. Wireless industry conspiracy theorists have expressed concern to cell tower landlords about 5G potentially making their cell tower obsolete unless they renegotiate the rental terms.
- The truth of the matter is if there are significant advances in wireless technology such as 5G that significantly disrupt the cell tower industry, then no rent reduction on earth can prevent a wireless carrier from terminating your lease. If you reduce the rent your cell tower can still “go away” at some point do to 5G or 6G or 7G.
