The rapid development of cellular communication systems all over the world has caused the appearance of many thousands of mobile telephone base stations. In some cases installation of base station antennas has produced concerns about health and in some cases has resulted in litigation in court. Independent research and measurements on electromagnetic fields in areas close to base stations was discussed, as well as a comparison of the level of exposure of local populations and current exposure limits.
