Voices Around Town

Would you mind if a cell phone tower were built next to your home?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nick Veronin

"I'm not sure. I'd have to do more research to see if it is harmful. But who doesn't want better cell reception, especially if you have an iPhone?"

Jenn Lui, Daly City

"I probably wouldn't mind. But I don't know much about the health risks."

AJ San Gabriel, Benicia

"I would mind. I would be concerned with the possible side effects of radiation, but I'd have to see all the facts."

Omeed Badri, San Jose

"I'm OK with it. I live in an apartment and I use a cell phone all the time."

Elaine Koff, San Mateo

"I don't want one to be near my home. The electromagnetic signals affect your brain."

Prakash Om, Sunnyvale
