Hi Brian (and others?), Re: "Do external fields which aren't strong enough to deliver meaningful heating still activate body mechanisms?" This question has been answered by existing science, though, unfortunately, it’s not yet reflected in FCC safety guidelines. (Likely for politcal reasons- telecommunications is a powerful industry with a powerful lobby. For example, did you know that it’s actually illegal (per Federal Law!) for a town to base a decision about siting a cell tower based on health concerns? The clause was lobbied right into the1996 Telecommunications Act.) - Science summaries: https://ehtrust.org/science/research-on-wireless-health-effects/ - A paper exploring the biological mechanisms of non-thermal effects: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3780531/ - MD giving testimony to the senate re effects of non-thermal radiation: https://youtu.be/1Qt5B39LB7c <https://youtu.be/1Qt5B39LB7c> - Recent press briefing by Senator Blumenthal (D, CT) re his request to the FCC to prove 5G safety, or revise exposure standards (including reference to health effects of 2G-3G technology): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XORGvLGFRo Also, likely of interest to 'green’ minded folk: non-ionizing (eg, cell) radiation has also been shown to have negative effects on insect, plant, and wildlife populations: https://ehtrust.org/science/bees-butterflies-wildlife-research-electromagnetic-fields-environment/ Food for thought…. -Jaffy
