What has come to be known as the “Brazil Study” is a recent study carried out by the Municipal Government of Belo Horizonte along with 3 Universities located in Brazil. This work submitted in 2011, incorporated epidemiological research taken from death records, telecommunications records and city population data. The results showed that there is a spatial correlation between deaths by neoplasia. Neoplasia represents the growth of tissue which can be benign, potentially malignant or malignant in nature. In this case, higher mortality rates were exhibited for the residents inside a radius of 500 meters from cellular telephone base stations. In fact, there were 14 times more deaths within a 500 meter radius than outside 500 meters.
