so even if the guy next to you is using mmWave 5G you are being cooked too.

No. The plume of effect from transmitting or recieving is less than a foot. You are in the most danger when making a phone call, this is why your ears get hot.

Saying hurricane forecasting interfering is real implies that the other issues I raised are not.
I did not mean to imply they weren't real. I do however view them as a nonissue.

FR2 are proven to be very harmful to many living things, yet nobody seems to care, but say 'layzah' and everone loses their mind.
vanilla 4G has been proven to cause cancer
people that spend too much time on their mobiles on calls also have an exponential increase in the chance of having brain tumors
but you're right, no one cares until it hits them

I agree with the last line, but 'vanilla 4G' ranges from 700MHz to 2600MHz (give or take, depending on the region). Care to elaborate further?

I'm guessing your definition of "prove" is rather liberal here.

Well yeah, your head is right in the plume. But it'd still take a LONG time to have a meaningful impact. Also; no one really uses cellphones as phones much anymore.
