2019-01-10 Microwave cooking can make food dangerous.

1)   A member noticed that at the end of the linked article about microwave ovens that I included in last night’s update there was promotion of an EMF protection device.  Louis Slesin of Microwave News has investigated many such devices and to date has not found any that can provide protection against RF/EMF.  I missed this entirely or else I would not have recommended that link. Instead the member offered another link that is much more informative, including how researchers in Europe in the 1990s were fired and harassed for reporting on research that warned about the dangers of eating microwaved food, just like what has happened with independent researchers who warn about EMR. 

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

As soon as Doctors Hertel and Blanc published their results, the authorities reacted. A powerful trade organization, the Swiss Association of Dealers for Electro-apparatuses for Households and Industry, known as FEA, struck swiftly in 1992. They forced the President of the Court of Seftigen, Canton of Bern, to issue a “gag order” against Drs. Hertel and Blanc. In March 1993, Dr. Hertel was convicted for “interfering with commerce” and prohibited from further publishing his results. However, Dr. Hertel stood his ground and fought this decision over the years.

The following is a summary of the Russian investigations published by the Atlantis Raising Educational Center in Portland, Oregon. Carcinogens were formed in virtually all foods tested. No test food was subjected to more microwaving than necessary to accomplish the purpose, i.e., cooking, thawing, or heating to insure sanitary ingestion…

Here’s a summary of some of the results:

  Microwaving prepared meats sufficiently to insure sanitary ingestion caused formation of d-Nitrosodienthanolamines, a well-known carcinogen.

  Microwaving milk and cereal grains converted some of their amino acids into carcinogens.

  Thawing frozen fruits converted their glucoside and galactoside containing fractions into carcinogenic substances.

  Extremely short exposure of raw, cooked or frozen vegetables converted their plant alkaloids into carcinogens.

  Carcinogenic free radicals were formed in microwaved plants, especially root vegetables.

  Decrease in nutritional value.

Russian researchers also reported a marked acceleration of structural degradation leading to a decreased food value of 60 to 90% in all foods tested.”

2)   Yet another nutty “advance” in technology.  This one could lead to reduced fertility and fewer healthy babies in future generations.

The smart diaper has entered the building at CES 2019

Monit created a cookie-sized sensor with Bluetooth that attaches to the outside of a baby’s diaper. The sensor can detect whether there’s pee or poo in the diaper and alert parents and caregivers. No more need for a diaper sniff test.

3)  New Brunswick’s power company’s application for a smeter project last year was denied because the benefits did not justify the costs. Now a new business plan is being presented with new benefit information presented differently.

Want to bet the info will be like BC Hydro’s and FortisBC’s in which the amount of money “stolen” by grow ops increased several times in order to justify the plan? And how did they prove this “lost” power and document the potential savings?  I don’t know. I never saw any statistics that could be confirmed.

NB Power launches PR campaign for revived smart meter plan

“”People thought that the rate increase was because of the smart meters. The rate increase actually was a very small portion that was related to smart meters,” he said. “A lot of people thought that it was an NB Power advantage, that it would cost a lot of money up front.”

That’s what Thomas said he’s hoping to counteract with meetings with municipalities and local service district leaders. This year, the utility is presenting its rate increase application separately from its smart meter plan.

“They’re not a huge investment in one year. They’re over time, and the impact on rates is positive over time,” he said.”

Subject: follow up to our pre Christmas conversation

Re:  Public, RF microwave radiation

Hello Tamara,

Following our phone conversation shortly before Christmas, I would like to provide you with information, relevant to non-ionizing, pulsed, microwave radio frequency radiation, from the medical/science perspective.

As you will learn from Dr. Golomb, this is not a health issue limited to a few electronically sensitive’s, like my wife, but this is becoming a global public health crisis, according to thousands of EMF scientists, medical researchers and countless medical organizations.

Beatrice Alexandra Golomb, MD, PhD Professor of Medicine UC San Diego School of Medicine

http://electromagnetichealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Golomb-Beatrice-Sept-2017-FINAL1.pdf

Dr. Golomb’s massive curriculum vitae:  

http://cnl.salk.edu/~bgolomb/

These are the same independent scientists, who published thousands of peer reviewed papers including the latest in EMF research, proving adverse health effects on many levels, such as DNA and neurological damage, cancer, malignant schwannoma of the heart, increasing spread of glioma which used to be a rare, highly malignant form of brain cancer, etc.

The duty of government:

Why is this government and BC Health unwilling to fulfill their duty to protect the public?

Is it not the duty of the BC Government and their health agencies, to stay informed of the latest research?

Why do they continue to cling to outdated science, foolishly opined by industry friendly Health Canada?

To put this into perspective, HC is the very same government agency which fired Dr. Shiv Shopra and his colleagues, Dr. Margaret Haydon and Dr. Gerard Lambert, for being whistleblowers in the 1990s, who disregarded pressure from their bosses to approve drugs, despite concerns for human and animal safety.  One of these drugs is a bovine growth hormone, which to this day remains illegal in Canada.

The public has a right to know :

The public has a right to know, that Health Canada and BC Health relies on outdated, obsolete EMF science, of which some are over 35 years old, from a time where science thought, that only thermal effects were of relevance.

BC Government and BC Health officials must become aware, that Health Canada’s alarmingly outdated and industry bias opinions, are not in line with current independent research, who considers Canada’s Safety Code 6 as scientifically obsolete, and non-protective.

Safety Code 6 Standards are NOT Protective  a quick insight into the biological hazards of Safety Code 6

http://www.c4st.org/images/hesa-2015/Dr-Martin-Blank-Presentation-to-HESA-Committee.pdf

 The most disturbing fact is, that Health Canada’s Radiation Bureau’s, Mr. James McNamee, considers his own 5 day mouse research, as the most comprehensive research ever, while he calls both 10 year US Government NTP, and Ramazzini studies as, irrelevant and non consequential.

I myself and many others received replies from James McNamee, who consistently discredits renown international scientists research, by using words such as:  “inappropriate study design or methodology, erroneous results, scientifically meaningless, un-sufficient quality, of little value,” etc.

James McNamee, who has previous ties to the telecom industry, even refused to except US Naval, 2000 EMF studies.

McNamee suffers from an overinflated sense of self worth, which should never be tolerated by any governmental agency.  How can this government and BC Health, take people like this seriously?

McNamee was member of the Bioelectromagentic Society, which fosters a very close relationship with corporations such as Motorola and other tech giants.

Why are government officials unable to smell a rat? 

Unfortunately, most people are so mesmerized by their wireless gadgets, that it impairs their objectiveness, regarding the health hazards associated with this biologically active, untested technology.  Yes, it is hard to believe, but WiFi, cell phones, tablets, cell towers, cordless DECT phones and even baby monitors remain biologically untested in Canada.

Instead of testing any these devices, industry is allowed to hide behind the so called ‘Safety Code 6’, which was originally designed for industrial applications, for a short and limited time, and never intended for non stop radiation exposure of the entire population, from multiple sources, 24/7!

The Wingspread Statement of the Precautionary Principal:

On January 15, 1998, Canada signed the Wingspread Statement, in which the Precautionary Principal was defined as follows:  “When an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, precautionary measures should be taken even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically.”

What kind of careless society would expose their most vulnerable to harm, like the unborn, children, the sick and elderly, in schools and hospitals, just to appease the obscenely profitable wireless industry?

Is this government and BC Health unaware, that Canada signed on to The Precautionary Principle?

Why is BC Health failing I their duty to protect patients, by ignoring the fundamentals of science?

The German Radiation Protection Agency as well as many countries around the world state, that unborn, mothers to be, children, the sick and the elderly must not be exposed to the “burden” of wireless technology radiation, while the Austrian Medical Association has bright yellow posters in their medical clinics, warning that cell phones have no place in medical facilities.

Lack of medical and science education:

Dr. Riina Bray, Director of the Environmental Health Clinic/ Woman’s College Hospital in Toronto, had this to say, as witness to The House of Common’s Standing Committee On Health (HESA):

Excerpt:  As a physician, educator, advocate and health care leader, I feel physicians are seriously lacking in the fundamentals in the science of EMFs from a physical science, technological and biological standpoint. They need to become aware of EMF sources and how the characteristics of this radiation impact the body. They need to understand the condition of EHS which affects about 3% of the population severely, and how this condition is related to other co-existing medical conditions. They need to understand the impacts of EMFs on children, issues arising in schools, baby care and pregnancy. They need to become aware of ways they can help patients protect themselves by minimizing exposures through common sense measures and shielding.

http://www.c4st.org/images/hesa-2015/Speaking-notes-Dr-Riina-Bray-2015-HESA.pdf

 If BC Health is truly interested in becoming a public health leader in Canada and the world, they must take this issue seriously and consult with scientists, listed in the  information provided.

Dr. Riina Bray would be an excellent starting point, and could be invited to conduct a seminar for BC Health, doctors, nurses and administrators, as it is vital that BC Health becomes informed, for better health of patients and society.  Dr. Bray conducted lectures at the university level on many occasions.

For BCH to realize, that electro-smog radiation is becoming an international public health issue, even in the US, here are many presentations and letters by doctors and scientist from: Mount Sinai Hospital, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, McGill University, European Cancer and Environment Research Institute, Harvard University, University of Orebro/Sweden, Oregon Health and Science University, California Department of Public Health, California Medical Association, Environmental Protection Agency, European Academy of Environmental Medicine, Irish Doctors Environmental Association, Yale School of Medicine, French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Physicians Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment, University of Pittsburg Cancer Institute

https://magdahavas.com/health-canada-admits-safety-code-6-guideline-for-microwave-radiation-is-based-only-on-thermal-effects/                                                                    

Excerpt:  February 20, 2013.  I just returned from a hearing in Montreal in front of the Superior Court of Quebec where Health Canada scientist, James McNamee, admitted that the Safety Code 6 guideline for microwave radiation (which includes radiation from most of the devices we are concerned about like mobile phones, cell phone antennas, Wi-Fi, wireless toys and baby monitors, smart meters etc.) is based ONLY on preventing a heating effect!

“Let me state that again.  Health Canada admits that Safety Code 6 for frequencies between 100 kHz and 300 GHz are based ONLY on heating!”

Guideline of the Austrian Medical Association for the diagnosis and treatment of EMF related health problems and illnesses (EMF syndrome)

https://magdahavas.com/austrian-medical-association-guidelines-to-diagnosing-and-treating-patients-with-electrohypersensitivity/

Excerpt:  If you think you are responding adversely to electromagnetic radiation, it is important that you share this document with your doctor/health care professional.  EHS is an emerging illness that has not been taught in most medical schools, especially in North America.  However, it is increasing at an alarming rate and now children as well as adults are adversely affected by this radiation.

 EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2015 for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses

https://www.electricsense.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Belyaev-et-al-2015.pdf

Excerpt:  Chronic diseases and illnesses associated with unspecific symptoms are on the rise. In addition to chronic stress in social and work environments, physical and chemical exposures at home, at work, and during leisure activities are causal or contributing environmental stressors that deserve attention by the general practitioner as well as by all other members of the health care community.

It seems certainly necessary now to take “new exposures” like electromagnetic field (EMF) into account. Physicians are increasingly confronted with health problems from unidentified causes. Studies, empirical observations, and patient reports clearly indicate interactions between EMF exposure and health problems. Individual susceptibility and environmental factors are frequently neglected.

New wireless technologies and applications have been introduced without any certainty about their health effects, raising new challenges for medicine and society. For instance, the issue of so-called non-thermal effects and potential long-term effects of low-dose exposure were scarcely investigated prior to the introduction of these technologies.

 Once you review some of this information, you will realize that our concerns are shared by thousands of physicians, scientist and medical associations around the world.

BC Health and medical staff must learn of the the ever increasing health issues, as extensively outlined in the information provided.

My wife and I know of many people who suffer from man-made EHS, on Vancouver Island, across the province and other part of the world.

EHS is a correct biological response to an unnatural environment, as electro-smog from pulsed radiation, does not exist in nature.

We and many others, are asking for Wi-Fi free, radiation free Safe Zones, in hospitals, public transport and schools, and free opt out for smart meters, so that everyone is given the opportunity participate in society, where no one is left behind.

If BC is to remain an inclusive society, surely, our human rights should not be overruled by the un-elected telecom lobby, especially by a government who prides itself being democratic and inclusive.

Please assist:

Please provide us with the contact information, where we and others can send our complaints to, regarding civil servants who deliberately choose not to answer questions and provide misinformation to the public.

Do ministers and Dr. Bonnie Henry actually read our letters in person, or are their young gatekeepers assigned to answer on their behalf?  Please be honest!

I heard from a former government lawyer that this is common practice.

I am asking you this, because our questions remain unanswered, no matter how many letters are written, and all we receive are cut and paste auto replies.  This is becoming so serious that this is entering the realm of ‘willful neglect’.

Why encourage young people to vote, if this government is nothing more than a fortress, just like the Liberals, where only lobbyist have free access to politicians?

Any advice you can give us, would be greatly appreciated.

Please let me know if you received my email, from Dec. 19, 2018.

Best regards,

Marcus Schluschen
