The cause obviously isn't radio waves, which have been proven time 
and time again in controlled tests to be harmless. 

When researches TRY to find a link between RF Exposure and 
cancers, they can not. This is one thing that has been looked at so 
many time and so many ways, that it would certainly have shown a 
link by now if there was one.

Prostate cancer is encouraged by a lack of sex. When you walk 
around at a hamfest, it's easy to see why prostate cancer and ham 
radio would go together like potato chips and beer.
