Adverse health effects from radiation

Resolved Question:

My father offered to give me an apartment. The apartment is located on the second floor of a 12 floor building. What worries me is the fact that on the top of the building there 2 antenas. One for a radio station and one for tv station. Also on the second floor next door to (one meter from my door) me are the servers of the station. Does long term living there pose any adverse effects to my health.

Thank you for your time

Right now, we do not have an confirmatory evidence mobile phone towers or TV/radio station towers causing increased risk of developing brain cancers or any damage to brain.

Right now, I would not say that you have increased chances but you should probably clear your doubts by verifying with the expert's opinions. and would give you a clear idea on the impact of electromagnetic radiation on human health. The gist is as I said we don't have confirmatory evidence one way or the other - as these studies have to span across generations. But I request you to go through the studies at your leisure.

I would be happy to answer any of your queries in future.
