Benajarafe transmitter headache drags on

AN ILLEGAL phone mast in Benajarafe remains standing five months after it was ordered to be removed.

Residents claim the Vodafone mast has caused a shocking 50 cases of cancer – many leading to death – since it was built 17 years ago.

“We are desperate,” said neighbourhood spokeswoman Antonia Delgado. “We don’t want to continue living in worry knowing that since this mast has been there, 50 cases of cancer have been registered.”

The Vodafone mast was constructed with no licence next to the Torre Moya watchtower.

After numerous protests, in 2009 Velez Town Hall ordered the phone giant  to remove its transmitter.

Then, after the company lost an appeal, in December it was ordered once again.

That month Councillor Concha Labao said: “Work is beginning on removing this mast, which has a great visual impact and is not legal.”

Yet it still remains standing.

Although its emission levels are lawful, many residents have reported suffering from insomnia and headaches since it was installed.

  1. Pure voodoo. If phone masts caused cancer, we’d all be dropping like flies. This mast may well be an un-licensed eyesore, but carcinogenic it isn’t. Be interesting to know how many residents of Benajarafe have mobiles that utilise this mast.

  2. Interesting to know that the Industry employees are quickly out to dispute the claims. Millions of people worldwide are suffering effects from these antennaes, mobiles, WIFI Backed up by Experts in microwave knowledge. Science which is not funded by the Industry is pushing through the smokescreen including BioInitiative Report, recent studies from Greece “http://electromagnetichealth.org/electromagnetic-health-blog/mice-proteome/” also see the number of experts who are backing the fact that pulsed microwave radiation is affecting health “http://www.petition-electrosmog.be/esmog.php?l=en” So who are you going to listen to Professors, Doctors without an Agenda or Sefanjo on a anonymous comment box stating “voodoo”? Stay on the Truth.
