Which reports? Where? It's not like there's huge numbers of people doing RF stunts, unprotected or not, so I'd be very interested to see in any actual case studies.
There are some studies on long term exposure to LF fields, with results that are pretty non-conclusive. And that's for continuous exposure, not 10 minutes next to a coil once a day. There's also a fair amount of work at tens of kHz (horizontal retrace rate on CRT monitors), also without much evidence of long term problems.
For instance,is there any evidence that the the guys and gals who demonstrate the coils at Boston's MOS or the Griffith Observatory (or any of RRCs many museum coils) suffer any long term effects?
