    Just because it is nonionizing, that does not necessarily mean that it is harmless.  Here is a thought experiment.

    Rays from a campfire are very rich in the infrared, nonionizing, low in visible, pretty much nonionizing, and very poor in the ionizing ultraviolet.  Take you hand and put it beside campfire coals for a couple of hours.  I guarantee that you will be injured, but not ionized.

    You make an excellent point.  Thank you.  Warmest regards, Doc.
