American Academy of Pediatrics on Cell Tower Radiation
The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued information on cell tower radiation on their webpage on electromagnetic fields. Please see all the text they have up below. (as of June 2017)
Electromagnetic Fields: A Hazard to Your Health?
In recent years, concern has increased about exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic radiation emitted from cell phones and phone station antennae. An Egyptian study confirmed concerns that living nearby mobile phone base stations increased the risk for developing:
Short-term exposure to these fields in experimental studies have not always shown negative effects, but this does not rule out cumulative damage from these fields, so larger studies over longer periods are needed to help understand who is at risk. In large studies, an association has been observed between symptoms and exposure to these fields in the everyday environment.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has also issued recommendations to reduce cell phone radiation. Please read about that here.
