    How can we possibly think that wireless communication using electromagnetic radiation at around 2-5GHz could be harmful? If these frequencies are carcinogenic, how has anyone that has ever used a light-bulb emitting electromagnetic radiation at around 400-780THz (at a MUCH higher wattage) been able to survive with no observable effects?
