Government gags experts over nuclear plant risks

The Sunday Times (UK) today (August 01, 2004) reports "Government gags experts over nuclear plant risks" (Story by Mark Gould and Jonathan Leake)
See http://www.timesonline.co.uk/newspaper/0,,2761-1198060,00.html


Additional background:

This is about the Committee Examining Radiation Risks of Internal Emitters (CERRIE) and the use of legal threats to prevent publication of a Dissenting Statement. Two Committee meetings had voted to include it in the final report. The second of these votes took place after Members had seen a draft of the Statement. The next meeting in June reversed the decision. According to the Sunday Times story, some Committee members think our banned Statement is "riddled with inaccuracies". They have complained repeatedly about "potential libels" but they have never said what might be libellous, despite our requests. They have also talked of "inaccuracies", again without being specific although we have asked repeatedly.

The legal opinions provided to the Chairman by Departmental lawyers speak of "negligent misstatements of factual matters" without being specific. Eventually, at the final meeting in June 2004, just before the gagging vote, Committee Members referred to six matters which were supposed to be factually inaccurate. On five of them they were wrong. The other was a minor point which might be a mistake but which we could and would have altered if anyone had pointed it out.

Here (if you have nothing better to do) is what they at last said was "factually inaccurate":

1) a section on the Second Event theory in which Dr. Busby answers scientific points made by his critics in their part of the report. In other words it's not a matter of "fact" but of scientific debate which the Committee has not been able to resolve. Reporting fully on such disagreements is the Committee's remit.

2) the cancellation of a Committee study of cancer near the Bradwell NPP. We wrote that detailed protocols had been agreed early last year but the secretariat had failed to obtain the data with no adequate explanation, leading to cancellation of the study. Discussions during the meeting confirmed our account.

3) We referred to the Secretariat's role in biased drafting of the main report. This was unpopular with the Committee but is essentially true.

4) We said that an external reviewer thought Hugh Richards' work on Tritium and birth anomalies in Cardiff was "cause for concern". In the meeting this was said to be untrue. We said it was true, and we see that our version is now in the final report.

5) Someone said (without being specific) that there was something wrong with our "Table one". This is a table of doses from single particles of Uranium Oxide of various diameters and it has been in the public domain for years without criticism, as far as we know. We have not been told what's wrong with it.

6) We noted that data had not been obtained from Wales Cancer Intelligence and Surveillance Unit. The precise way we wrote this might be open to challenge, but we would have changed it long ago if anyone had pointed out an error.

Not an impressive attack on us, but nonetheless five members voted for a motion to ban the Statement, two against, two abstentions, and two absent members.

ON THE OTHER HAND the main report is prone to misstatements (we say "prone to " because it isn't published yet, so we can't be categorical). The outstanding example concerns infant leukaemia after Chernobyl. Published papers from research groups in several countries all show a sharp increase. We say this unequivocally demonstrates that ICRP's risk model is in error by a factor of several hundred for internal exposure. The chances that these increases in so many countries at the same time could happen randomly are vanishingly small.

Recent drafts of the main report reveal a desperation to dismiss it, partly by minimising statistical significance, partly by plain denial. Some of the studies are ignored, wrong doses are used for Germany, and the reliability of Greek cancer registration data has been questioned without substantiation. A risk coefficient and regression analyses have been used that we never agreed were valid. On the basis of all this fudging the main report says leukaemia was indeed increased but only at the level predicted by current risk models. Since according to the risk model a foetal dose of 10,000 microSieverts caused a 40% increase it is hard to see how the 70 microSievert foetal dose in Germany caused a 48% excess, or 80 microSieverts in Scotland and Wales caused 260%. Etcetera. If dose and response are in a linear relationship (a keystone of ICRP) then 70 microSieverts should have caused an increase of just 0.28%. Discrepancies on this scale are big enough to account for all the nuclear site clusters.

Do You Microwave Your Food ?

Do You Microwave Your Food? You’re Zapping Away Nutrients and Risking Your Health

By Dr. Joseph Mercola with Rachael Droege

Sure, the microwave is convenient; what other device allows you to heat your food up in a matter of seconds? And they’re so widely used that you’d be hard-pressed to find a gas station or office building without one. But there’s a reason why I haven't had a microwave in my kitchen for over 15 years and--much to the distress of my employees--pulled it out of the office over three years ago. This is something that you likely already intrinsically suspect but don’t want to acknowledge due to the convenience factor--microwaves are bad for your food, and they’re even worse for you.

There are many concerns with microwave ovens, among them:

* Carcinogenic toxins could be leached from plastic or paper plates or covers and mix with your food.

* The food temperature may become extremely hot, at temperatures high enough to cause burns or steam buildup that could explode--this is especially problematic for baby bottles, and is one of the reasons why baby bottles should never be heated in the microwave (microwaving can also break down the disease-fighting ability of breast milk).

* Vegetables and other food lose valuable, cancer-fighting nutrients when cooked in the microwave.

* The chemical structure of foods changes when microwaved, with unknown consequences.

There have been very few studies done to determine what kinds of changes occur in foods that are microwaved, but rest assured the changes are significant.

Consider the 1991 lawsuit involving a woman who had hip surgery and died because the blood used in her blood transfusion was warmed in a microwave. Blood is routinely warmed before transfusions, but not by microwave. The microwave altered the blood and it killed the woman.

Microwaves also destruct and deform food molecules. A study published in the November 2003 issue of The Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture found that broccoli "zapped" in the microwave with a little water lost up to 97 percent of the beneficial antioxidant chemicals it contains. By comparison, steamed broccoli lost 11 percent or fewer of its antioxidants.

Besides the loss of nutrients, microwaving forms new compounds (radiolytic compounds) that are unknown to humans and nature. It’s not yet known exactly what these compounds do in the human body. It will likely be a difficult thing to sort out, especially when there are previously unknown compounds being introduced to humans from a variety of sources such as new food products (i.e., olestra) and genetically modified foods.

Perhaps the most concrete evidence of the dangers of microwaves comes from Dr. Hans Hertel, a Swiss food scientist, who carried out a small but high-quality study on the effects of microwaved food on humans. His conclusions were clear and alarming: microwave cooking significantly altered the food’s nutrients enough so that changes occurred in the particpants’ blood--changes that suggested deterioration. The changes included:

* Increased cholesterol levels

* More leukocytes, or white blood cells, which can suggest poisoning

* Decreased numbers of red blood cells

* Production of radiolytic compounds (compounds unknown in nature)

* Decreased hemoglobin levels, which could indicate anemic tendencies

Dr. Hertel and his team published the results in 1992, but a Swiss trade organization, the Swiss Association of Dealers for Electro-apparatuses for Households and Industry, had a gag order issued, which prohibited Dr. Hertel from declaring that microwaves were dangerous to health. The gag order was later removed in 1998, after the Swiss court ruled that the gag order violated the right to freedom of expression. Switzerland was ordered to pay Dr. Hertel compensation as well.

So what can you do to avoid microwaves? Well, my first suggestion is to get rid of it in your home so you won’t be tempted to use it. If it’s not there, then you can’t use it! Then, try consuming a lot of your food raw. Ideally, at least one-third of the food in your diet should be raw, since this is the form that will give you the maximum amount of nutrients. A quick and easy way to consume a large amount of raw vegetables, which is generally great for your health, is by vegetable juicing.

If you do want to cook some food or heat up leftovers, use your oven or stove. This may seem time-consuming at first, but you’ll soon adjust and may actually start to enjoy the natural time it takes to heat up or prepare your food. During this time, you can relax with your family, read, write, listen to music or do anything that will help you to slow down and prepare for the meal you’re about to enjoy. You may notice that taking more time to prepare your food will transcend to other aspects of your life as well, and you’ll enjoy a slower, more relaxed lifestyle than the majority of those around you.

The Effects of Microwave Apparatus on Food and Humans

Microwaved food increases electrical sensitivity

If you have more info than this about how eating microwaved food increases electrical sensitivity, I would much appreciate receiving it. -Shivani Arjuna

The Effects of Microwave Apparatus on Food and Humans

Reprinted from Perceptions Magazine, June 1996

Microwave cooking ovens were originally researched and developed by German scientists to support mobile operations during the invasion of the Soviet Union. Had they perfected electronic equipment to prepare meals on a mass scale, the Nazis could have eliminated the logistical problems connected with cooking fuels while producing edible products in far less time than they could using traditional campfires.

After the war, the Allies discovered the medical research and documentation concerning those apparatuses. The papers and experimental microwave equipment were transferred to the U.S. War Department and classified for reference and scientific investigation. The Soviet Union also retrieved some of the devices and began an experiment on them separately. The Russians – who have done the most diligent research into the biological effects of microwave ovens – have OUTLAWED THEIR USE and issued an international warning about the biological and environmental damage that can result form the use of this and similar-frequency electronic apparatus.

Medical Research Summary

The most significant German research concerned with the biological effects of microwaves was done at the Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin in 1942-43, during the Barbarossa military campaign. Beginning in 1957 and continuing up to the present, Russian studies in the field have been conducted at the Institute of Radio Technology. In most research, the foods were exposed to microwave propagation at an energy potential of 100 kilowatts per cubic centimeter per second to the point considered acceptable for sanitary normal ingestion. The observations made by the German and Russian microwave researchers will be presented here in three categories: cancer-causing effects, destruction of nutritive value and biological effects of direct exposure of humans to microwave emissions.

Effects on Microwaved Foods

The following effects have been observed when foods are subjected to microwave emissions.

Meats: Heating prepared meats sufficiently to insure sanitary ingestion creates d-nitrosodiethanolamine, a well-known cancer-causing agent.

Proteins: Active-protein, biomolecular compounds are destabilized.

Increase in Radioactivity: A “binding effect” between the microwaved food and any atmospheric radioactivity is created, causing a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in the food.

Milk and Cereals: Cancer-causing agents are created in the protein-hydrolysate compounds in milk and cereal grains.

Frozen Foods: Microwaves used to thaw frozen foods alter the catabolism (breakdown) of the glucoside and galactoside elements (see Note 1).

Vegetables: Even extremely brief exposure of raw, cooked or frozen vegetables to microwaves alter alkaloid catabolism (see Note 2).

Resulting Effects on the Human Body

Digestive System: The unstable catabolism of microwaved foods alters their elemental food substances, causing disorders in the digestive system.

Lymphatic Systems: Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions occur in the lymphatic system, causing a degeneration of the body’s ability to protect itself against certain forms of neoplastics (cancerous growths).

Blood: A higher-than-normal percentage of cancerous cells in blood serum (cytomas) can be seen in subjects ingesting microwaved foods.

Brain: Their residual magnetism effect can render the psychoneural-receptor components of the brain more subject to influence of artificially induced, microwave-radio-frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay networks.

Free Radicals: Certain trace minerals molecular formations in plant substances (in particular, raw-root vegetables) form cancer-causing free radicals.

Increased Incidence of Stomach and Intestinal Cancers: A statistically higher percentage of cancerous growths result in these organisms, plus a generalized breakdown of the peripheral cellular tissues and a gradual degeneration of digestive and excretory functions.

Microwaves Reduce Food Values

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods studied. The following are the most important findings to date.

Vitamins And Minerals Made Useless: In every food tested, the bioavailability (see Note 3) of the following vital nutrients decreased: Vitamin B Complex, vitamins C and E, essential minerals and lipotropics.

Vital Energy Fields Devastated: The vital energy field content of all foods tested dropped 60 to 90 percent.

Digestibility of Fruits and Vegetables Reduced: Microwaving lowers the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids, glucosides, alactosides, and nitrilosides (see Note 4).

Meat Proteins Worthless: It destroys the nutritive value of nucleoproteins (see Note 5) in meats.

All Food Damaged: It greatly accelerates the structural disintegration of all foods tested.

Biological Effects of Microwaves

Exposure to microwave emissions also has a negative effects upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that humans can be adversely affected without even ingesting the foods that have been subjected to microwave radiation.

Merely Entering the Energy Fields of the Food causes such harmful side-effects that the Soviets outlawed all much microwave apparatus in 1976. Here are the effects observed in humans having ‘direct’ exposure to microwaves, that is, without their having consumed the Irradiated [microwaved] food substances.

Life-energy Field Breakdown: Persons near microwave ovens in operation experience a breakdown in their life-energy fields which increases relative to the length of exposure.

Cellular Energy Decreases: The cellular-voltage parallels of individuals using the apparatus degenerate – especially in their blood and lymphatic serums.

Destabilized Metabolism: The external energy activated potentials of food utilization are both destablilized and degenerated.

Cell Damage: Internal cellular-membrane potentials during catabolic processes into the blood serum from the digestive process degenerate and destabilize.

Brain Circuitry Destruction: Electrical impulses in the junction potentials of the cerebrum degenerate and break down.

Nervous System: Nerve/electrical circuits degenerate and break down while energy field symmetry is lost in the neuro-lexuses (nerve centers) in both the front and rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems.

Loss of Bioelectric Strength: The bio-electric strengths within the ascending reticular (see Note 6) activating system (the system which controls the function of waking consciousness) go out of valance and lose their proper circuiting.

Loss of Vital Energies: Humans, animals, and plants located within a 500 meter radius of the equipment in operation suffer a long term, cumulative loss of vital energies.

Nervous and Lymphatic System Damage: Long-lasting residual and magnetic ‘deposits’ become located throughout the nervous and lymphatic systems.

Hormone Imbalances: The production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in both males and females becomes destabilized and interrupted.

Brainwave Disruption: Levels of disturbance in alpha-, delta-, and theta-wave signal patterns are markedly higher than normal.

Psychological Disorders: Because of the disarranged brain waves, negative psychological effects will also result. These include loss of memory and the ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual rang-emission field effects of microwave apparatus, from either cooking apparatus or transmission stations.

Potential Use In Mind Control

Due to the creation of random, residual magnetic deposits and binding within the biological systems of the body (nervous and lymphatic systems damage) which can ultimately affect the neurological systems (primarily the brain and nerve centers), longer-term depolarization of tissue neuroelectronic circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irremissible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (see Note 7), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their residual magnetism effect can render the psychoneural-receptor components of the brain more subject to influence by artificially induced, microwave-radio-frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay networks.

[Thus rendering the individual more electrically sensitive to all forms of electrical pollution, including the high frequencies riding into their home on the 60 Hz from their utility company. -Shivani]

Soviet neuropsychologists at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (see Note 8) have theorized the possibility of psychotelemetric influence (i.e., affecting human behavior by transmitting radio signals at controlled frequencies), causing subjects to comply – involuntarily and subliminally – with commands received through microwave transmissions acting upon their psychological energy fields. For this reason, and due to the 28 other contradictions listed above, the use of microwave apparatus in any form is definitely ill-advised. Present scientific opinion in many countries clearly opposes them, as exemplified by the mentioned Soviet Ban.

Notes:

1. Two groups of glycosides, the first containing glucose and the second containing galactose. Glycosides are a group of sugar derivatives found widely in plants. Galactose is a white, crystalline sugar that results when lactose (milk sugar) reacts with water.

2. Colorless, crystalline and bitter organic substantial, e.g., caffeine, morphine and strychnine. Found in plants they have alkaline properties, contain nitrogen and can have a strong toxic effect on the human system.

3. The measure of how readily the body can access and use the nutrient.

4. Organic compounds in laetrile (vitamin B17) that contain trivalent nitrogen attached to one carbon atom.

5. A substance composed of a single basic protein (usually a histone or protamine) combined with a nucleic acid (such as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) –protein complex or ribonucleic acid (RNA)-protein complex).

6. Netlike.

FREE SPEECH ?

FREE SPEECH IN LONG BEACH?

UPDATE ON THE LBAPN LAW SUIT

(excerpt)

Small Claims Court Judge Leon Emerson ruled against five Long Beach peace activists, ordering them to pay $1108.20 each for organizing the Rallies and March protesting war on Iraq. March 22, 2003, thousands marched along the streets of Long Beach while Bush was bombing Baghdad. The City claimed its costs were $7041. Judge Emerson found the $1500 charges for use of the beach not adequately "justified" and reduced the total to $5541.00. He ruled that each of the defendants (John Beacham, Sharon Cotrell, Diana Mann, Kathy Pliska, and Eugene Ruyle) is individually responsible for a pro-rated share.

Judge Emerson did not discuss the chilling effect his decision will have on free speech in Long Beach which was argued by the defendants and many other community activists who testified before him. The defendants will appeal this decision and LBAPN will ask the City Council to take steps to protect free speech in Long Beach. As defendant Eugene Ruyle, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at CSULB and Chair of LBAPN at the time of the rally stated, "The import of this issue goes far beyond the five of us." Los Angeles attorney Carol Sobel is filing a federal lawsuit on behalf of LBAPN. Sobel, a national expert in free speech law and Chair of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, successfully represented LBAPN and other community activists in an earlier case when Long Beach tried to charge prohibitive fees for a July 4th celebration and protest of sky-rocketing energy costs.

LBAPN is also asking all our supporters to write or call City officials to express their concerns about the First Amendment implications of this case. We will be calling meetings to plan a campaign and to pursue this issue.
