And real science says we know only there is some effect, we don't know how 
much RF it takes to create a given problem, we don't know how much is 
harmful, we do know the "non ionizing" effects do chage with frequency. 
Therefore we have to take a "best guess" and set limits with a generous 
safety factor based on what we have been able to see in non-human test 
subjects and/or specific lab tests.
