I have been looking at this in between everything else since 1998 when I was funded by Children With Leukemia to do some reseacrh on the issue. I believe that the carcinogenic effects of RF are due to increasing the energy of electrons produced by ionising radiation, either from the (major) photoelectron tracks induced by gamma background or the beta tracks from internal emitters. The electron energy is modulated by the B field of the
RF Electromagnetic radiation.. Thus the electrons borrow energy from the EM field which they then deposit in tissue as ionisation. This gets round the fact that the quantum energy of th EM photons are not absorbed by any energy levels available in molecules. We are currently examining this issue in the laboratory. It is odd that no one has thought of this. I suppose because you all imagine these background levels of exposure to be harmless.

"WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible cancer risk
according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
Before its announcement Tuesday, WHO had assured consumers that no adverse health effects had been established.

I and many other folks who have been involved in the R.F. industryhave *always& had concerns about chronic microwave R.F. in close proximity to the head, eyes.Nonionizing does not mean no detectable effects.Fellow radiomen tell tales of birds dropping dead when flying in front of large radar arrays (DEW Line.
