Well, just the other thing that affects my thinking (iirc, this is the first 
time I chimed in on this thread)--I would just as soon have fewer 
electromagnetic waves passing through (or into) my body.

IIRC, the higher the frequency, the higher the energy in those waves--thus the 
more likely to have an effect.
