I remember hearing of a similar problem elsewhere and I think the issue was a certain type of tree that was growing on that block in a few places

Isn’t there an environmental health department in Israel? The statistics seem to suggest there is something going on in that building, maybe underground.

Shira has a gorgeous baby son, whose bris was attended by our dear דודה יהודית, so… no, Shira’s mother did not pass away a week after she married off her daughter, rather a year later.

I recommend paining the ceiling on the top floor with metallic paint, or to glue a metal net wallpater on it, (this will stop the waves from going into your home,(you minght have bad cellphone reception in your house))

Other neighborhoods have the same problem. There aren’t good filters on the internet. I’m sure that’s what it is.

I am not an Expert but you constantly hear ppl talk about the dangers of cell towers in close proximity

What antennas – those are the water tanks for solar heaters! Anyway, if you ware worried about the antennas get rid of your mobile phone – it is far more harmful!

mold?
Guest
mold?

Did the check the apartment for mold in the walls? Long term exposure to mold can cause cancer.

Not Antenas

These are not antenas on the roof, but rather solar panels and hot water tanks commonly found on roofs in Israel.

“The radiation levels were normal”, there are many things other than radiation can cause cancer. To name a few: toxic waste, toxic fumes, dirty water, any many other things. They must higher an expert to thoroughly test the complete environment.

In America all the home ispecters offer a radon test. They say that it causes cancer. Do they do this test in Isreal as well?

Take a look at 706 Eastern Parkway.
The corner building of eastern pkwy and Brooklyn ave.
Where is the community? how many more neshamos will have to suffer from these radioactive cell phone towers right over our heads?
This is a ticking time bomb…
Lets get this done and stop fighting between ourselves about petty things and save some lives!!

so much foolish "reasoning" and yentaism

1. Cancer is not a single disease. It is a category like arthritus or heart disease. There are many types and many causes. Without proper measurable comparisons it is impossible to say what causes a particular form. 2. Statistics is a very pecise science, not a group of numbers. Only someone knowledgable in a field can identify what is a statstically relavant. 3. Beware of anecdotal “evidence” and headline medinine. 4. “People say” and “everyone knows” are among the most dangerous and foolish rections to stories like this. 5. If there is a possibility that the incidences of cancer or… Read more »

Move somewhere else in Israel. It’s hard but at least make the effort.

Mezuzos should be checked, make sure there’s no asbestos or mold, and if nothing helps, then the building should be demolished.

Clusters happen for no reason
Guest
Clusters happen for no reason

Obviously spiritually there are no coincidences, and Hashem is telling them something. But physically there is no reason to panic. They’ve checked for environmental causes and not found any, so there probably aren’t any. Cancer clusters happen regularly by pure coincidence, just as there are clusters where by coincidence there are fewer cases than expected, or none at all. It just happens like that. Look for spiritual reasons or just trust in Hashem. The idea that proximity to power lines can cause cancer is narishkeit. The same applies to cell towers; there is no reason to worry about them.

36 - and you know this, because???

So seeing a direct correlation between buildings with (not one, but *many*) cellular antennas and a spate of illnesses is something you get to smugly dismiss as “narishkeit”. And the basis for your assertion is…?? This is the problem when everyone feels they’re entitled to an opinion – people think it means others must take their fact-free opinions seriously. The owners of 706 Eastern Parkway know full well about the ramifications of the appalling concentration of antennas on the roof, and the amount of lives this has claimed specifically on the higher floors. A resident listed off to me personally… Read more »

Comment 33 similarly throws out red herrings. While it certainly is necessary to conduct rigorous study, there is a certain threshold of correlation that can be accepted as prima facie evidence of a connection. Every scientific study was conducted because first, someone saw a pattern and decided to investigate it further. Once you see the patterns of concentration of cell antennas and illnesses, when the causal relation between radiation and cancer is documented and clear, clamoring for “competant”(sic) verification by “trained experts” – and claiming the right to do nothing until those studies are conducted to Your Royal Highness’ satisfaction… Read more »

Narishkeit, pure narishkeit

Narishkeit, pure narishkeit

There is NO CONNECTION between cancer and power lines, cell towers, or any of these other things. When you look at large numbers any correlation disappears. For every cluster of many cancers in the same place there’s a similar cluster somewhere else with few or no cancers. That’s just the way it happens. The only reason you hear about this stuff is because there are some very sick people who, to put it bluntly, get off on scaring people. Knowing that people are scared makes them happy deep down inside. If we could only cure that, we’d have far fewer… Read more »
