OT: RF (was: RE: E11/WinME results....)

RF at around 2.2-2.6 GHz (typical microwave oven freqs) will warm
living tissues. There are tables listing the complex transmission
impedance of say, chicken, at those frequencies :-) .
_So far_, other than the heating effect, nothing
_scientifically conclusive_ can be said about whether that
will increase your odds of developing cancer. The same can be said
about exposure to AC magnetic fields at power line frequencies.
Again, _so far_. But lots of studies have been done, so if there
was a strong link it would have been discovered by now.
