They read in media that there is something that they didn't understand. Then it is dangerous.

As if those people fully understood anything at all ... from Spinning Jenny and onwards ...

People react to radiation if they believe it is there. Norwegian public television made a check, inviting several test persons in to see how soon they observe reaction to a mobile base station, Folkeopplysningen[^]. Unfortunately, the program seems to be unavailable abroad. It shows how a sizable group of people get dizzy, headaches etc. when exposed to a the radiation from a mobile base station transmitter. One by one, the test persons get so sick that they have to leave the test room. Needless to say: the transmitter was a mock-up; there was never any radiation whatsoever.

If you cannot access this video: There are dozens of such trials. Reports of people getting sick when the antennas were put up - before the transmitter was turned on. And so on. An essential part of the Norwegian TV program covers their efforts to make the "radiation sensitive" people come for a blind test to see if they really would be enable to distinguish between radiation and non-radiation: They are of course in principle very positive to contribute to such a test, but when it comes down to reality, their escapes and excuses for evading any real test is endless.

You will find numerous similar reports. Any report "proving" sensitivity to radiation at the level of mobile base stations turn out to be unverified, unverifiable by neutral observers. Yes, we know people can get sunburned from radiation in the PHz range. We know that meat can be cooked by high intensity radiation on the 2.5 GHz (microwave oven) range. This is like saying that you should never sit down right on top of that camp fire lit by the scout group, or dry your wet cat in the baking oven.
