Documentary Film Review: “An Invisible Threat”



Watch “An Invisible Threat” on Epoch Cinema here.

A very informative documentary on the issues surrounding microwave radiation.

Have you ever stopped to think about how cell phones and cell towers can emit harmful radiation? Have you ever heard reports here and there that this might be a scientifically viable theory? Well, a well-produced documentary titled “An Invisible Threat” is something you might find instructive, as it delves into the health effects of the increasing amounts of microwave radiation flooding the entire planet.

The film begins by showing us American newscasts from anchors in the 1970s reporting high levels of radiation at the US Embassy in Russia. They postulate that the Russians may be using microwaves to jam the eavesdropping equipment used by the Americans. The scene suddenly shifts to modern times and shows multitudes of people walking around while talking on their cell phones.

While cell phones were unheard of 50 years ago, radiation levels – except in the rare cases reported by news anchors – were in general much, much lower. Transpose that with today, where almost everyone has a cell phone.

A condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome, where some people are particularly vulnerable to radiation, was relatively mild even until the early 1980s. personal computers and cell phones, people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome make up about 10% of the population. In the movie, that number was set to increase rapidly over the “next 5 to 10 years.” What is so disturbing is that the screening was given 8 years ago when the film was shot in 2014.

A Spanish woman named Minerva Palomar is one such person who has electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome. She explains that she started noticing a mixture of symptoms including strong headaches, spasms, nausea and a feeling of general weakness when a cell phone tower was installed near her residence.

Manuel Desco of the Scientific Advisory Committee on Radio Frequency and Health points out that many people have reported symptoms similar to those experienced by Palomar, either after installing cell phone towers or after using cell phones for long periods of time. long periods.

Olle Johansson, director of the department of neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, has studied extensively the effects of electromagnetic radiation on humans, plants and animals. He says high levels of electromagnetic energy are not meant to be in normal operating environments on Earth.

As Johansson describes, the various biological systems on the planet were never designed to be flooded with electromagnetic waves. But the more this happens, the more these waves have harmful effects on these biological systems, such as cancer and other “alterations” that destroy the very links of our DNA molecules.

He adds that natural levels of microwave radiation on the planet have always been extremely low. But in modern times, everything has changed. He compares this change to “turning a knob” and raising those levels to bombard humans, plants and animals with microwaves they were never designed to withstand.

The documentary goes on to interview various knowledgeable people on the subject of microwave radiation and electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome. Through these interviews with scientists, investigative journalists and others, we learn that certain forces in society minimize or completely ignore the health effects of widespread radiation. Some organizations charged with studying cell phone use and its relationship to microwave radiation have been mysteriously “tampered with”.

The question then becomes: what are we, as a collective society, going to do about this ever-expanding problem?

I found this film not only very informative, but also very prescient since we live in a time when most people blindly trust technology – especially anything to do with microwaves – as evidenced by our seeming addiction to cell phones. Part of the problem (and what’s so insidious about it) is that the many health effects caused by electromagnetic radiation are caused by something we can’t see, hear or touch, even though those harmful waves are bombarding our body all the time. .

“An Invisible Threat” is a well-produced documentary that not only delves into the increasingly severe effects of radiation on all life on the planet, but also the many conflicts of interest between governments, politicians, lobbyists, the so-called “health” organisations. , private industries and the military.
