Transmission towers radiate fear

TWO main issues highlighted by major Chinese newspapers this week were public anxiety over the effects of radiation from transmission stations on health and the plight of hawkers after the ban on the sale of compact discs at open-air market places.

Nanyang Siang Pau, Sin Chew Jit Poh and China Press reported that residents in more than a dozen housing estates in the Klang Valley complained about health problems after transmission stations were set up near their houses.

On Monday, residents from four housing estates told the Chinese press they suspected these transmission stations were responsible for their poor health.

Kepong MP Dr Tan Seng Giaw, said the people feared the transmission stations mainly because no party had so far been able to prove that the magnetic waves from these structures were harmless to human health.

“The Government should not allow transmission stations to be put up in residential areas unless it is proven safe to do so,’’ Nanyang quoted Dr Tan as saying.
