Model VHF and UHF Radiobroadcast tower exposure to children in Kiev and correlation with health problems

Children living around two radiobroadcast towers in Dnepropetrovisk and Kiev were analyzed for health problems. Levels of RF energy in the schools of children in these two regios were reported as between 2.5 - 5 V/m. The authors report a decrease in healthy children, an increase in functional disturbances, and a decrease in health index of children with higher exposure levels.
