Dangers of Micro Waves

Reader reminds everyone of the danger of micro-waves

Say MICROWAVE and one immediately thinks of the kitchen appiance - but there is more to it than that.

In rather a long post, reader Jeffrey Davies reminds us of the hidden dangers of micro-waves, including those used to operate smart meters.   Mobile phones and remote controls are also mentioned in his post.   Microwave ovens should be checked often to ensure the door is not 'leaking'.

Mobile phones have long been a cause for concern because when used they are close to the brain.   Because mobile phones are such big business it is likely that dangers are being surpressed because of the profit motive.   Parents should certainly not let young children use them.

EXTRA:

Hazards of electromagnetic radiation:

Over-exposure to certain types of electromagnetic radiation can be harmful. The higher the frequency of the radiation, the more damage it is likely to cause to the body:

microwaves cause internal heating of body tissues

infrared radiation is felt as heat and causes skin burns

X-rays damage cells, causing mutations (which may lead to cancer) and cell death

gamma rays also damage cells, causing mutations (which may lead to cancer) and cell death.

Microwave Testers

Microwave radiation testers are available from Maplins for as little as £3.99
