NST: GEORGE TOWN: Many parents are complaining that their children are suffering from nose bleeds and headaches and this has Ong Bee Lai concerned.
Ong, the SRJK (C) Shun Wu Parent-Teacher Association chairman, yesterday voiced her fears about the telecommunications antennas mounted on a giant billboard at the Scouts Headquarters in Jalan Scotland.
The school, which is situated in Jalan Air Itam, is a stone’s throw from the billboard.
“I receive an average of three complaints a week from parents who say that their children have nose bleeds and headaches.
“The radiation emitted by the nearby antennas is a major factor affecting the pupils’ health,” she said at the site, where she was joined by some 100 residents of the nearby Desa Timur Apartments.
Ong said the billboard was five years old and the antennas had been attached to it two months ago.
“We want to ask the authorities to look into the matter to ensure telecommunication antennas are not put up in the vicinity of schools and public places.”
Kebun Bunga assemblyman Jason Ong Khan Le, who was also present, said he would take up the matter with Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
