all the old broadcast TV engineers I grew up with, starting in the 50s when everybody had a transmitter engineer "resident at the site", as in the station built them a house outside the fence, died from brain cancer shortly after retirement at 65.  that's low VHF.

the old radio guys, and they did not have housing at the AM transmitter sites but the techs worked long hours in the transmitting building, made it to their 80s.

apocryphal and small numbers, but if you start working the onine exposure calculator for each band to see if your little TV mast is high enough, the numbers correlate.
