Microwave Radiation – Do We Have to Be Worried

Microwave Radiation – Do We Have to Be Worried

Posted: 31 Aug 2010 03:36 PM PDT

A “microwave” is a wave of electromagnetic radiation. These waves are shorter than radio waves, and, besides their use in microwaves ovens, are used in radar and transmitting data. In a microwave oven, these waves pass through the food, which is heated via dielectric heating. This basically means that the molecules in […] Related posts:  CONTINUE READING

Microwave and oxygen deprivation in your red blood cells

Safe distance from a shielded microwave is 500m according to Russian scientists! I read somewhere on this group Kevin stuartdicks wrote:mobile-man

I was thinking since the introduction of microwaves in the eighties our healths have been going down hill with the introduction of new illnesses. I measured the voltage outside mine when it was cooking, it was 40 v/m up to one foot away. I suppose mobile phones are 1 v/m on average.

So if your standing by your microwave waiting for it to cook then thats 40 minutes on the mobile phone for every minute of cooking time. For some people they might eat microwave meals 4 times a week at 4 minutes each so that could be a possible exposure of 640 minutes a week on the mobile phone. Thats alot of phone calls.

I suppose working people are more likely to use the microwave because of the time factor and becuase we are naturally lazy.

The funny thing is my cat used to sit on top of ours in our family home and every time we would warm desert up his expression would change dramatically.

Can Electrical Appliances Harm Your Health?

Published by The Healthier Life February 12, 2009

 

Imagine there’s an invisible pollutant that is affecting all of us. Imagine we all contribute to this pollution on a daily basis by simply watching television or using other appliances or driving our cars. Imagine that this pollution can contribute to diseases such as Diabetes, Cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Okay, what am I talking about? Ever heard of electromagnetic fields (EMF), or electromagnetic radiation (EMR)?

 

Over the next few weeks, I will take a look at EMF Pollution which has been hailed as the ‘Hidden Illness’.

 

Consider the following:

 

Never before in the history of mankind have people lived in environments so laden with EMF Pollution. The average person is exposed to over 100 million times more radiation than their grandparents. With the arrival of cell phones, cell phone towers, blackberries and Wifi, the amount of electromagnetic frequencies bombarding the average individual is higher than ever, prompting scientists to label our generation as EMF guinea pigs.

 

Why pollution?

 

Almost all electrical and mechanical appliances radiate EMFs or EMR. EMFs are made up of two things: electrical fields and magnetic fields and these fields emit energy waves. Energy waves get transmitted through the air to all kinds of receivers – mobile phones, laptops, computers, antennas etc. Think about this: In a world where the average car emits more EMRs than a chest X-ray, EMF Protection has become a necessity.

 

So how does this work exactly?

 

There are two types of EMF:

 

1.  Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF), which are generated by electrical appliances and power lines

 

2.  Radiofrequency radiation (RF), which is most commonly used to transmit wireless signals (and you know how much of that is around theses days…), such as mobile phones, broadcast transmission towers and cordless phones.

 

Dirty electricity

 

Almost all electrical currents are generated at 60 Hz, but high voltage changes can contaminate the 60Hz transmission frequency causing an excess of ‘dirty electricity’ that exposes all of us to high-frequency radiation. So what is the threat all about? It is important to realize that all ‘chaotic’ non-biological electricity is a threat to our physical, emotional and mental health.

 

Just as some people are more resilient against airborne pollution and diseases than others, the same can be said about the symptoms associated with electrical pollution. However, long-term exposure that does not lead to immediate symptoms can still result in increasing physiological side effects and symptoms that may ultimately cause serious disease. Every person is affected by electrical pollution, but some people are more sensitive, less resilient and therefore more vulnerable to health problems associated with high EMF pollution.

 

My colleague Dr. Jonathan V. Wright has just written an extensive article on the dangers of EMF Pollution in the monthly newsletter, Nutrition and Healing.

 

Over the following weeks, I will take a closer look at the threat of EMF pollution as well as measures that we all can take to protect ourselves against it.
