The Soviets and Eastern Bloc did it aggressively on HF to attempt to jam Western propaganda. (We didn't jam theirs by the way. Everyone was free to hear it and make up their own minds. Anyone with a short-wave radio could listen, and still can.)

Since E band can only provide very local cell coverage (due to those inconvenient laws of physics), jamming it has the same localised problems. But if you're frightened of the biological effects of E-band signals, adding to them by jamming is completely counter productive! And if anyone was successful, do you think the authorities would just look the other way? Me neither.
Yeah I guess. We're doomed, doomed!
