>Radiation is such an incredibly nebulous term. In the popular consciousness "radiation" means "something to do with nuclear weapons/reactors" while in reality it's a lot broader than that, radio waves for instance is "radiation", like wise certain forms of heat. The idea that "radiation" causes cancer is dumb a betrays a fundamental illiteracy of physics and biophysics.

Yes, and if people associate radiation with nuclear weapons and materials such as Uranium, then yes, it should be associated with cancer. The airpod cancer thing is stupid, but radiation still does cause cancer.
It is not wrong to associate radioactive materials with cancer.

Ionizing radiation causes cancer. Radiation on its own doesn't. Saying radiation causes cancer is very misleading and leads to the situation described in OP.

Yes it is, since I’m radioactive. The wall is radioactive. Dogs are radioactive. Plants are radioactive. Everything emits radiation.

>>10469376
Still referring to ionizing radiation, considering I mentioned uranium and nuclear weapons.

Most electromagnetic radiation used has wavelengths which dont have the capability of interacting with tissue. This is absolutely asinine.

I invite you to sit in my microwave oven for two minutes.

5g is and bluetooth headphones are waste of resources and utter bullshit even if they don't cause cancer.

If they cause people will just get what they deserve.

This is the scariest thing ever to cause cancer in only 30 years later with years of unobstructed use. Call now and get a free tinfoil hat.

Never said they weren’t. Just that his spurt unknowingly failed to distinguish between microwaves and commercially used radio waves.

great now sound waves give you cancer and are now considered a form of radiation. if you ever want to read more bad science go to https://phys.org and read all the countless fraudulent documents.

airpods transmit at 2.4 GHz, a wavelength of 0.125 meters would just bend around your head. Also, light isn't ionizing and it's a far higher frequency that 2.4 GHz. The electric field of the sun on a sunny day is like 24 V/m.

UV is a form of light and causes skin cancer.

Ever notice how all conspiracy retards reject technology? We should just let them have what they want, let then live on tax funded "retard reserves" while the rest of us are building space elevators and fucking our cat girl sex slaves.

>>10469839
UV is at frequencies of 750 THz or higher though.

*visible light isn't ionizing, is what I meant.

That's a goddamn cell phone tower. This thread is for air pods. Try comparing the two antenna sizes at least before posting
>>
>>10469858
It is m80. It's a bit of a problem with light microscopy even, dosing a cell with visible light often kills it dead.
>>
well, in theory, it could even at those non-ionizing energies, cells are sensitive to their environments, so if radiation heats up a cell even by fractions of a degree for long periods, it could increase risk of cancer.
but then so could literally everything, so the risk increase is literally irrelevant in magnitude.

Until you get cancer then it is relevant as fuck.
>>
>>10471751
The main cause of your cancer is you since it is your own body misbehaving on a cellular level.
Blaming your own inability to eat and live more healthy on companies and technology is retarded as fuck.

I definitely don't want cancer.
>>
>>10472067
they're believed to be essentially harmless in normal usage, but it depends on the amount of power and how close you are to the source
>>
>>10472067
>safe

Please, define that term first.
>>
>>10469337
Except scientists will call radio waves and blackbody emissions "radiation" (as they should) and then laypeople misinterpret this thinking that radiation means inherently harmful/carcinogenic
>>
>>10471961
Based, people abuse the fuck out of their bodies and then ask why they get cancer
