To the best of my knowledge, low and medium frequency RF is not
capable of disrupting/ionizing cellular material. However, there
is a most interesting slant on this that has been featured in two
editions of the British publication "Electronics World and Wireless
World". Some research (far from definitve as yet) suggests that
the fields may be concentrating ionic particles that are themselves
radioactive e.g. ionized radon gas in the vicinity of fairly strong
em fields around powerlines. There was recently a television feature
in this country which drew on the same sources as these articles.
All I currently know,
