Targeted microwave ovens: claims to be abandoned in Japan

“A ban on the use of microwaves on Japanese land was prompted by a study by researchers at the University of Hiroshima, which revealed that microwaves caused more damage to citizens’ health in 20 years than the bombing of US planes in 1945. September ‘, – is published in the Liar, which has recently been very actively shared on social networks.

Satire turned into liar

Internet users began sharing messages about the impending ban on microwave ovens in Japan back in 2019.

This news was created and first published on the Russian Satirical News page panorama.pub.

The satirical news even mentions an identical punishment, repeated by liars – for refusing to obey the government’s order to throw away the microwave – from 5 to 15 years in prison.

The study by Hiroshima scholars was also invented by Russian humorists.

It is further written in the melody that “according to expert conclusions, food heated in a microwave oven has harmful vibrations, disharmonious to universal rhythms.

In addition, it is said that the researchers conducted an experiment: 5 cockroaches were placed in the microwave and left in the 3000 W “grill” mode. All the insects were killed.

All this information is false and was created by comedians.

Disinformation about allegedly harmful waves has started to spread again in the Lithuanian and world information space after the avalanche of rumors that broke out at the end of last year about the alleged dangers of 5G communication.

News jokes

Although panorama.pub The page makes it clear that the news being created is satirical in nature and should not be taken seriously, it periodically appears on Russian news sites, and sometimes even spreads around the world, as has happened this time.

This satirical page appeared on the internet around the end of 2017.

The project description notes: “Founded in 1822 and since then has operated as Count Rabinovich’s personal news service.”

Next to all articles, there is an inscription in smaller print that the information on the page is fictional, which is also understood by the inscription next to the main logo: “satirical magazine”.

Panorama.pub the news created by the authors was repeatedly supported by real information, quoted by major news agencies and television channels.

In early 2017 the publication Novyje Izvestja believedthat after the Olympic doping scandals of Russian athletes, the students of this country began to be suspected of dishonest behavior at the International Physics Olympiad.

Obstacle and neighboring Latvians – diffuse panorama.pub created messagethat members of the Russian Ballad Orchestra were detained and later deported from the country after a concert in Ventspils, law enforcement was flooded with requests from journalists to comment on the incident.

Portal panorama.pub that the President of Turkmenistan won the National Programming Championship a couple of years ago Ingrida Šimonytė shared on Facebook on the social network.

I.Šimonytė told the portal LRT.lt that she was familiar with the nature of the article and page, but decided to share the message because, even if it is incorrect, it well illustrates the current situation in Turkmenistan.

According to the news portal Meduza, which is called a “foreign agent” in Russia, panorama.pub page misled a number of influential Russian media outlets, as well as government news agencies.

As Meduzai said in an interview panorama.pub the authors, for whom it was said to be a leisure project, for some time the editorial office was pleased with the widespread liars, later overwhelmed by opposing feelings, seeing how casually information is checked by both the Russian media and readers.

Health effects are being investigated

Although the impact of a microwave oven on human health is controversial, there is no confirmed evidence that food cooked in a microwave oven acquires any properties other than those produced by other means and is harmful to health.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, microwave ovens are safe and suitable for heating a variety of foods.

Microbangos Is a type of electromagnetic radiation.

Electromagnetic radiation can be very diverse – it includes microwaves, radio waves, and visible light, X-rays, and gamma rays.

One type of radiation is separated from another by the wavelength that determines the amount of energy transferred.

Microwaves, like radio waves, are classified as “non-ionizing radiation”.

This means that they do not have enough energy to knock out electrons from their atoms.

Therefore, microwaves cannot damage the genetic material inside cells, published by the American Cancer Community.

X-ray and gamma rays are types of ionizing radiation – the energy of these rays is high enough to knock out electrons from atomic orbitals and cause gene damage.

And while in the microwave are not as harmful as the rays of the ring, this does not mean that they are completely harmless.

These waves heat food by vibrating water molecules, and the vibration of the molecules is perceived as heat.

Theoretically, microwaves could heat body tissues in a similar way to food, and enough intense microwave radiation can cause burns and cataracts.

However, such injuries are extremely rare and usually occur when people receive a large dose of radiation through open openings in the oven – for example, through damaged door insulation. refers to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
