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:
- A paper exploring the biological mechanisms of non-thermal effects:
- MD giving testimony to the senate re effects of non-thermal radiation: <>
- 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):

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:

Food for thought….
