But I am a skeptic that these findings are alarming.

Radio waves are much different than gamma waves. Gamma waves are so small that they can, in laymen terms, get into an atom and knock electrons out of the atom. The mechanism and the damage this causes is well understood.

Radio waves are huge. Their effect would likely have more to do with slightly increasing temperature and the permeability of the BBB and not direct damage to biomolecules like with gamma radiation. That is what I meant in my first comment.

It's a possibility that radiowaves and low-frequence microwaves are causing damage to health, but it is not alarming in my opinion (at least compared to many other potential hazards we encounter daily).
