Are radio waves harmful to humans?

They can be, if you're willing to put in the effort that it would require.

You must be slightly off-kilter to begin with, and then here are a few ways

it might be done:

-- Modify your microwave oven so that it can run with the door open. Then

stand in front of it while you pop the corn or heat the leftover meatloaf.

-- Set up your lounge chair, then relax with a drink and a good book, five feet

in front of a Doppler radar antenna. Stay there for a substantial length of time.

-- Take an office job at a popular FM radio station that serves a large geographic

area. Set up your office on a platform mounted on the tower, either at the top,

or, better, between two bays of the transmitting antenna.

Short of those efforts or similar ones, your attempts to do yourself harm

by means of radio waves are doomed to failure.
