Two of the most common products that many Americans use today should trigger medical concerns about them because they are both considered hazardous to your health. They are the microwave oven and the cell phone.

Dr. Percy Spencer, a self- taught engineer with the Raytheon Corporation introduced the public to microwave oven cooking when he claimed to have invented the microwave oven in 1946. The Raytheon Corporation did actually file the first patent on one. However the Nazis actually invented these ovens called "Radar Ranges in 1954.

After the war the United States discovered medical research done by the Germans on microwave ovens. These documents and even some working microwave ovens were transferred to the U.S. War Department and classified for reference and further scientific investigation. The Russians in turn also retrieved some microwave ovens and did thorough research on their biological effects. Because their research revealed microwave dangers, they were outlawed for a year or two.

The following information by the Russian investigations and published by the Atlantis Rising Educational Center in Portland, Oregon revealed that carcinogens were formed in virtually all foods tested. No test food was subjected to more microwaving than necessary to accomplish the purpose.

There has been much controversy over the years about the hazards of microwave oven cooking but still thousands of people continue to use them frequently to thaw, heat or cook entire meals in them. Even though our FDA is supposes to be protecting our food from all kinds of hazards they have yet to ban the worst cancer producing machines in history. Is convenience so important in our world today when it comes to preparing food that we just ignore the warnings and subject ourselves and our family to hazardous conditions?

Whatever happened to crockpot cooking and timed cooking in our stoves and ovens? That is how my mother and wife prepared meals years ago. Those ways of cooking are still available today. Could laziness on our part be the reason we prepare meals in this way today? What do you believe is most important concerns we should have, convenience or health of family?

Now our attention should also be turned to the excessive uses of cell phones. It seems that many people cannot separate themselves from what I call this "little demon." They can't seem to drive, walk or shop without the "little demon" connected to their ear.

I will agree however that they do have an important function in our lives but not to the extreme that most people use them. I believe it is especially important for every woman to have a cell phone for the particular purpose of better insuring their safety.

My greatest concern is the cell phone health risks imposed on young children and teenagers. Our granddaughter and grandson both have cell phones and I believe that at a young age they are not responsible enough to have one. They spent too much time on them. The real truth is about to change of the real dangers of cell phone usage. Those who are "in the know" in the medical professions are finally becoming aware, after mountains of They use it evidence, that these phones are indeed dangerous.

It becoming a well-known fact that we are on the verge of a brain cancer epidemic. It could grow to 500,000 cases worldwide as soon as this year 2010. There many even be over a million cases in the U.S. alone by 2015.

Here's the real problem. It may take years for mainstream news to get real serious about publishing this hazardous information. One reason is the telecommunication industry is massive. With combined revenues of more than $869 billion in 2007, it will do it's best to spread misdirection and outright lies about these findings.

Let me just add a final note to how I feel about these two subjects. I believe the hazards of microwave oven should be more known. However the cell phones do have a purpose in our society that is useful. But people should be educated about the hazards of excessive usage of them and only use them for purposes of emergencies or safety reasons.

I always add this plea in all my writings and it’s this. To be a healthy individual you must take charge of your own health matters. Believe it or not no one else is going to be as concerned as you are about your health. You can become more informed about your health by getting my ebooks on various aspects of health.
