Can Microwave radiation penetrates building materials? I'm living within 120 meters from a mobile phone base station and I'm concerned with possible health effects from it .
Meh - a simpler and less expensive solution would be to encase the entire house in chicken wire. I'd be very interested in seeing how well this works.If you're REALLY really concerned (and I don't think there's reason to be, like Russ said, there's lots of other things you should be worried about before radiation from cellphones), you could build yourself a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage" [Broken] around your house. A Faraday cage is the reason you can see through the window on your microwave, instead of it being a solid sheet of metal.
BUT, enclosing the walls of your house with a Faraday cage would be obscenely expensive after the house has already been built, having to remove drywall, install the cage, re-install the drywall, paint, etc...
That's what I was thinking, chicken wire. I haven't looked at it for shielding from cellphone radiation (not that I think that would be necessary), but IIRC, chicken wire is sufficiently sized such that it would effectively shield everything in your house from an EMP blast as the result of a high-altitude nuclear detonation (assuming you don't have a skinny little wire connecting you to the grid, in which case, sorry for your luck).Meh - a simpler and less expensive solution would be to encase the entire house in chicken wire.

Well thank God! It's not the travelling part that worries me but the sudden stops that can happen along the way inside my body.Cos not only are they radiation, they are nuclear and subatomic. That's three scary words in one particle. And they go straight through you and nothing can stop them!
