Spanish documentary on the health effects of electromagnetic radiation in residential areas and schools, which was censured and never shown on the national TV due to industry's pressure:

POTENTIALLY HARMFUL RADIO FREQUENCIES USED IN THE PACKAGING AND FOOD INDUSTRY
September 19, 2010. Few people realize that radio frequencies (RF) are currently used in the manufacturing industry to mold plastics for car parts, vinyl fabrics, and food packaging. In fact this industry used the first incarnation of the ?microwave? oven that we all enjoy today.
Our home microwave oven works on radio frequencies to heat food. Similarly, radio frequencies, which are much more energy efficient than thermal energy production by fossil fuels, are used to mold and seal plastics. These machines are called RF heaters.
Are these machines safe and who sets the safety standards?
After leaving the U.S. Navy, Dr. Zory Glaser worked for NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) and helped formulate our current guidelines with the Canadian government for radio frequency radiation. He passed along a document that I would like to share with you that demonstrates the reasons for establishing the ?thermal effect? guidelines.
Radio frequency (RF) heaters are known to leak radiation. Dr. Glaser was shocked to see that machine operators had taped large fluorescent light tubes to the outside of the machines to determine when they were operating. What worried him was that there were no wires connected to the lights. The leaking radiation was so intense it would light up the tube. These observations resulted in a study by Canadian government officials to determine if these machines were safe to use.
