MicroWaves… Cancer for Convenience?

It’s a bit controversial, but you should know that using a microwave oven could be damaging your health. Swiss scientist Hans Hertel did independent research on microwave cooking that was once banned from publication by a court gag order demanded by an industry association. He was told to recant or be arrested. His findings were not favorable for microwave-oven users. Hertel’s research corroborated early Soviet Russian research that led to a ban on microwave ovens, which was lifted after the “iron curtain” fell to increase microwave oven sales.

Both Hans Hertel’s research and the Soviet Russian research went beyond the commonly accepted dangers of microwaves leaking into the immediate environment and lowering nutritional value of microwave-cooked foods – two very real consequences of using a microwave oven.

Molecules are Agitated and Damaged

Hertel explains how heat is produced from the inside out in microwaves:

“Technically produced microwaves are based on the principle of alternating current. Atoms, molecules and cells hit by this hard electromagnetic radiation are forced to reverse polarity 1 to 100 billion times a second.”

Hertel is quick to point out that microwaves from the sun don’t cause the same type of molecular damage because the sun emits direct current (DC) pulses, where microwave ovens are generated by alternating current (AC) that causes the rapid polarity shifts in molecules to torque and tear them.

There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent, destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts.” Hertel continues, “This is how microwave cooking heat is generated – friction from this violence in water molecules. Structures of molecules are torn apart, molecules are forcefully deformed (called structural isomerism) and thus become impaired in quality.”

So it’s the water molecules in foods that are directly agitated first to produce frictional heat. Even worse, using a microwave oven for heating water for coffee or tea or for warming baby’s formula will create severely damaged molecules, which are carcinogenic. More on that later.

Gene Damage from Microwave Cooking

Besides these thermal modifications, there is direct damage to cell walls and genes from microwaves. Gene altering technology, which includes the biotech food industry, alters genes by weakening them with microwaves.

“The cells are actually broken, thereby neutralizing the electrical potentials – the very life of the cells – between the outer and inner sides of the cell membranes.”

Strange and unknown compounds are created by microwave energy’s penetration into organic matter. They’ve been called radiolytic compounds. Some scientists argue that normal cooking creates these as well. However, Hertel’s research has indicated that far more radiolytic compounds are created by microwave cooking.

Hertel used human trials to demonstrate that the food and liquids damaged from microwaving modifies the cellular activity in humans consuming them. In addition to creating lower red blood cell counts and white blood cell (immune system “killer cells”) damage, one’s normal cells can be forced by the damaged molecules and radiolytic compounds to adapt into an emergency mode of energy production.

Cells are forced from normal cellular oxidation of glucose into the anaerobic energy production of glucose fermentation. This is a cancerous condition. Anaerobic glucose fermentation is how cancer cells survive and thrive.

It almost seems impossible to omit microwaves completely in today’s fast-paced world. But reducing the use of microwave ovens will help, and that’s something you can feel good about.

Be Metaphysical: The Pineal Guide

The Pineal Gland/ Third eye has been known to be the source of seeing visions beyond physical reality. A subject that has interested cultures throughout the test of time. Here I will try to provide information on how each part of the mind work in unison.

Pineal Gland —> Serotonin —-> Melatonin –> Inner-Lightment

By understanding this cycle it will help you know how to give your body what is required to increase pineal gland activity awareness. What’s fascinating is that the interior of the pineal gland actually has retinal tissue composed of rods and cones (photoreceptors) inside its interior lining just like the eye, and is even wired into the visual cortex in the brain. pineal-gland“The photoreceptors of the retina strongly resemble the cells of the pineal gland. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the pineal gland has always been important in initiating supernatural powers. Development of psychic abilities has been closely associated with this organ of higher vision. The third eye controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body’s thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it “awakens”, one feels a pressure at the base of the brain. This gland produces several hormones such as norepinepherine, serotonin and melatonin, which regulate mood and sleep patterns. The Pineal Gland has the highest level of blood flow over any other organ in the body. Several foods and herbs can contribute to the health and regulation of the pineal gland. The pineal gland is able to measure day length and adjust secretion of melatonin accordingly. The two hormones we will focus on is serotonin and melatonin.

Serotonin acts as a neurotransmitter, a type of chemical that helps relay signals from one area of the brain to another.  Approximately 90% of the human body’s total serotonin is located in the enterochromaffin cells in the in the epithelia lining the lumen of the digestive tract and the respiratory tract. Serotonin secreted from the enterochromaffin cells eventually finds its way out of tissues into the blood. Screen shot 2014-03-10 at 7.11.17 AMThere, it is actively taken up by blood cells, which store it.  Functions include the regulation of mood, appetite, and sleep. Serotonin also has some cognitive functions, including memory and learning. Serotonin is produced is through hydroxylation, introducing oxygen and hydrogen (OH)  into a organic compound. Hydroxylation converts lipophilic compounds into water soluble products that are more readily excreted. It involves the conversion of CH carbon hydrogen into COH carbon oxygen hydrogen.

Hydroxylase + Tryptophan(1 of 22 amino acids) = Serotonin

Melatonin a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body. Ultimately, melatonin has the ability to entrain biological rhythms and has important effects on reproductive function of many animals. Within the pineal gland, serotonin is acetylated and then methylated to yield melatonin.melatonin

Synthesis and secretion of melatonin is dramatically affected by light exposure to the eyes. The fundamental pattern observed is that serum concentrations of melatonin are low during the daylight hours, and increase to a peak during the dark. Melatonin has important effects in integrating photoperiod and affecting circadian rhythms. Consequently, it has been reported to have significant effects on reproduction, sleep-wake cycles and other phenomena showing circadian rhythm. Administration of melatonin has been shown to decrease motor activity, induce fatigue and lower body temperature, particularly at high doses.

third-eye-chakra-5The pineal gland produces the serotonin and melatonin your body needs for everyday regulation and feeling good. The function as a receptor for visual images beyond physical reality is sometime overlooked. In order for your pineal gland to work as it should you must first provide the tools it needs to function at full potential. Serotonin levels are affected by diet. An increase in the ratio of tryptophan to phenylalanine and leucine will increase serotonin levels.

Foods with high levels of tryptophan: Chocolate, oats, dates,peanutes, seasame, bananas , chic peas, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.try 

Research also suggests eating a diet rich in carbohydrates and low in protein will increase serotonin by secreting insulin, which helps in amino acid competition. However, increasing insulin for a long period may trigger the onset of insulin resistance, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and lower serotonin levels.

Hydroxylase + Tryptophan(1 of 22 amino acids) = Serotonin

Muscles use 12 of the 13 amino acid groups (not using tryptophan), allowing more muscular individuals to produce more serotonin

Hydroxylation is just adding  oxygen to a CH (Carbon Hydrogen) bond.  Deep breathing will assist in bringing in more oxygen as well as blood circulation allowing more hormones to be released and absorbed.

That is the key,  eat foods that will increase amino acid competition. Exercise and build up the demand of muscle related amino acids to increase competition and serotonin/melatonin production which is pineal gland activity on a biological level.  Once you overstand the information  im sure moving forward to a more metaphysical perspective will be the next step.Screen shot 2014-03-10 at 7.36.36 AMThe best way I can describe  seeing with the third eye  is: Imagine a situation like ( jogging on a track) through first person perspective. You can see your surroundings mentally as if it were reality in the moment but it feels like your seeing based on a memory. So as it is happening it feels like your seeing based on the imprint of the memories being created instantaneously.    Be metaphysical
