    Worked at a radio repair shop 1980 to 1990. When the first cell phones came out they were the size of a briefcase and mounted in a trunk of a vehicle and the antenna mounted on the roof of the vehicle. The handset mounted on the center hump next to the driver was somewhat like a Princess phone. Mostly doctors and lawyers at that time were able to afford purchase of a cell phone and air time. One doctor came into the shop and he wanted to have the cell phone radio removed. The radio/cell phone was installed about a month earlier. We asked the doctor why he didn't want the cell phone. He took out a device that measured for microwave oven leaks and placed that device near the ceiling of his vehicle, the alarm sounded, then he said this thing is frying my brain, take it out. So we obliged him and removed the radio/cell phone.

    I wonder, in the last 100 years, has anyone done any study on Amateur Radio Operators and their families?

    Most hams have antennas, on their roofs, or in the back yard, radiating hundreds or in some cases, up to 1500 Watts of power.

    Seems like doing a cancer risk study on them might provide some useful insight into the question of whether RF exposure can possibly increase risk of cancer?

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
