That statement is just not true. There have been no long term studies on the safely of continuous exposure to microwave energy on the masses, and particularly on children. Who had a cell phone or wi-fi in the 50s, 60s, or 70s? Few people use their microwave oven all day long, and the Soviet Union did have a documented outbreak of illness that damaged thousands of people due to the sale of microwave ovens with even less shielding than our government currently allows. People in our military have become disabled due to constant exposure to radar and other microwave sources.
In test that have been conducted, animals spontaneously retreat from even low levels of microwave radiation. What do animals know that we do not know? In 2004, why did elephants know that a tsunami was coming long before humans did, and retreated to higher ground during the Indian Ocean earthquake?
We are conducting a mass human experiment right now with the rampant proliferation of microwave emitting devices that surround us, at home, in schools, in hotel rooms, and even in whole cities. Where this will all lead medically is totally UNKNOWN! We are exposing children to electromagnetic radiation thousands of times stronger than the exposure humans were subjected to through natural sources during our long evolutionary journey. We ARE leaping into the unknown, and the outcome cannot be predicted as yet with our current level of "understanding."
Nerve cells are very delicate things, and the synapses of the brain are electro-chemical devices. They work both with chemistry and with electricity. That is why our military has experimented in using microwave devices to affect the minds of the enemy, not just the lower part of their bodies. Caution is advised, and rightfully so!
