60 Ghz ... isn´t that EHF?? I know, surely all the tests have been
done and that a scientist will tell us that "everything is fine" as
long as we keep it to the spec. Then of course the market will do
whatever it pleases to get out of the spec and higher mileage out of
the standard, with firmware hacks, out-of-spec homebrew directionar
antennas, and power boosters... the standards and safety
considerations be damned.

maximum incident power density of 1 mW/cm2 does not alter cell
viability, gene expression, and protein conformation."
