According to a growing body of research, microwave ovens are dangerous to our health. During World War II, two scientists invented a tube that produced microwaves called the magnetron. Combining the magnetron's within Britain’s radar system, the microwaves were able to find Nazi war-planes on their mission to bomb the British Isles.  The EPA recommends limited exposure to EMF of .5mg - 2.5mg. If you stand 4 inches from your food cooking in the microwave, you will be exposed to 100 - 500mg. Standing three feet away from the operating microwave will expose you to 1 - 25mg. Swiss scientist, Hans Hertel’s study suggests microwaving food degrades and depletes food of its nutrients. The radiation from the microwave destroys and deforms the molecules in the food, creating dangerous radioactive compounds. In 1992, a study from the Search for Health, researched the effects of participants that consumed microwaved vegetables. They experienced - Rapidly increasing cholesterol levels. Decrease in haemoglobin causing an anaemic-like conditions. Decrease in white blood cells. Increase in leukocyte (indicating poisoning and cell damage. Alzheimersmag.

Consumers have filed a lawsuit in New York and California against the owner of Quaker Oats, alleging that their oatmeal contains traces of the pesticide glyphosate. The lawsuit was filed after the plaintiffs had a test conducted to analyse the contents of Quaker Oats Quick 1-Minute oatmeal. The test was conducted in an independent lab in California. The results of the test found traces of glyphosate in the sample that was used, and although the amount that was detected was technically under the allowable legal limits, the lawsuit accused Quaker of “false advertising” due to the claim that their products are “100% Natural.” A statement released by the Quaker Oats Company claimed that they did not add the chemical glyphosate into their oatmeal and that it was likely the result of residue left by pesticides sprayed on the oats by farmers.

Eating salad vegetables every day could help stave off dementia by boosting memory power, research has revealed. Scientists have found a daily serving of foods such as lettuce and spinach could be linked to a slower rate of brain ageing,  the equivalent over a lifetime of keeping the brain 11 years younger. The study found that people who ate salads each day had a slower rate of decline on tests of memory and thinking skills than people who never or rarely touched such foods. The team of researchers discovered that eating greens regularly reduced the likelihood of the symptoms of dementia or diseases which cause it such as Alzheimer’s. In the study the projected difference between the two groups, one regularly eating greens and the other not. Over a lifetime was the equivalent of being just over a decade younger in age, according to the American research team. Express.

The gastric protector known as Omeprazole is killing people. This drug can actually cause serious harm to your gut, disrupting the beneficial gut flora that already exists. They are usually prescribed as strong antacids to stop excess acid in the stomach, but they actually work as ‘Proton Pump Inhibitors’ which means they inhibit acid from being created in the stomach. A certain level of acid in the stomach is needed for healthy digestion and often Omeprazole can stop this bodily function from working properly. These drugs are only meant to be taken for short periods at a time, but they are regularly prescribed by doctors for years for people suffering long term stomach problems. Vitamin B deficiency is reported in around 65% of people who are taking Omeprazole long term. This is a classic case of the pharmaceutical industry releasing a drug which targets one problem, but the long list of side-effects are much worse than the original problem. AlzheimersMag.

Prof Dong Song and his team from the University of Southern California implanted the device in 20 volunteers. Memory improved by about 15% in short-term test when correct stimulation pattern was used. Some volunteers improved by 30% in a longer-term memory test. They hope this could help sufferers from Alzheimer's and other dementias by bypassing the damage caused by cell death in the hippocampus. Metro News.

Alzheimer’s disease: Risk of future diagnosis could be spotted in middle age. Scientists have found a link between inflammation which may speed up brain shrinkage in later life. It has raised hope that a simple blood test could flag up who stands the greatest chance of being ravaged by the incurable disease. The findings last night prompted a leading British professor to suggest that aspirin, a common over-the-counter anti-inflammatory, could slash dementia risk.  Researchers claim people who have indicators of inflammation in their blood in their 40s and 50s may have more brain shrinkage decades later. The cell loss was found in areas of the brain specifically affected by Alzheimer’s, which now affects more than 500,00 people in the UK. Daily Express.
