    Can the mobile towers on bulidings do any harm to the people living in that building by the radiation?

    Usually only radiation in the ultraviolet and above frequency range can really hurt people. In other words, light that's at the very top of, or higher than the range we see in.

    Cell towers emit radiation that's lower than the visual.

    Radio waves and light are the same thing. Just that radio waves are at such a lower frequency that most people don't think of them as being "light"

    And this is the reason why your Microwave oven uses what kind of radiation to cook food???

    If the power is high enough and there's an interaction between the tissue and the radiation it WILL do some damage. But with the power those towers emit and field strength generated there's no proven effect on humans. Actually your cell phone really is the thing that cranks out some power. If there were an effect of the relay stations we would have realized much earlier. The TV antennas generate mcuh higher powers and operate in a similar wavelength. And we did see an increase in brain tumors whit the arrival of "Lassie" and "Star Treck". I mean, much of what is broadcast WILL in fact turn your brain into scrambled eggs, but this is a different story.

    There was a study with some people that consider themselves extra sensitive to electromagnetic "smog". They were place in a large room with a live transmitter for cell phones and the emitter was switched on and off randomly. Those guys couldn't tell if the emitter was on or off, at least not better than throwing dice. So much for autosuggestive symptoms and nocebo effect.
