It has to do with RF limitations and the effect it would have on ham 
radio.  The contents are supposed to scare the non technical into 
believing that the signals that are permeating the atmosphere ( RFI) are 
poisoning them and thus consent to a thousand fold decrease in non 
ionizing radiation.

My 2-meter array was at 130 feet and at that height  "just" made the 
limits at my property line, if running 400 was just I kept my 
transmissions to 3 minutes. (Uncontrolled area)  My tribander was at 100 
feet and the legal limit would allow a 6' person to stand at the base of 
the tower with one foot to spare, (controlled area)

Decrease the allowable exposure by a factor of 1000 and look what happens.

Of course that would practically eliminate the utility of cell phones 
and we'd be back to the old hard wired land line.  The general public 
would not stand for it. OTOH the administration has shown they care 
little for opposing ideas, opinions, or facts.

  The only hams would live well out in the country with the antennas 
several hundred yards from the house with a tall chain link fence around it.
