The undersigned residents of Miami Shores Village are calling to voice their opposition to the variance application identified as PZ-01-16-201610 for the placement of a 100 ft. tall wireless personal telecommunications service antenna tower to be located at 2 N.E 104th Street. This type of facility should not be built in our residential neighborhoods. It will deter from our "Village Beautiful” community. We hereby respectfully ask our Planning and Zoning Director and our Elected Officials to deny the application on behalf of the village residents.

Can Cell Towers Cause Cancer?

A study performed by doctors from the German city of Naila monitored 1000 residents who had lived in an area around two cell phone towers for 10 years. During the last 5 years of the study they found that those living within 400 meters of either tower had a newly-diagnosed cancer rate three times higher than those who lived further away.

Breast cancer topped the list, but cancers of the prostate, pancreas, bowel, skin melanoma, lung and blood cancer were all increased. Naila Study

Cellphone MastsAnother study by researchers at Tel Aviv university compared 622 residents who lived within 350 meters of a cell phone tower with 1222 control patients who lived further away. They found 8 cancer cases in the group affected by the cell tower, compared with only 2 cases amongst the controls.
