EMF and CPAP

RE: EMF and CPAP
Of course you must consider that Mongo has been exposed to EMP at "the TRESTLE."  And at PAX river.
I might be a few brain cells short.

Hmmm... maybe I should run for State Assembly.

Nope! Still too many brain cells. Dancing

RE: EMF and CPAP
True in California.

Frankly, I'd be more concerned about that dictator in the DPRK popping Nukes.
If he can get one close there's:

X-ray
Prompt Gamma
Delayed Gamma (if endoatmospheric)
Neutrons
EMP (and its variations like HEMP)
Thermal
Blast/Shock

You forgot to add being totally annoying. He'll worry us to death.

There are no such peer-reviewed references for you or anyone else to provide.

There is nothing to contest when you look at the science.

Scientists are regular people, and there are many of them posting regularly right here on this forum. There is no dispute about this issue in the scientific literature. Heated CPAP hoses are safe. Microwave ovens are safe.

Also the issue of frequency.

Microwaves are dangerous because they use very high frequencies...  several gigahertz.
The power from the machine and the hose is down at 50/60 hertz and is harmless to biological tissue.
Even if the machine has a switching power supply internally to operate the electronics and heater using PWM to regulate the temperature, it is still operating no higher than a couple of kilohertz.   Again, relatively harmless.

Visible light is of even higher frequencies. The thing that makes microwave radiation dangerous is that the frequency matches the frequency emitted and absorbed by water molecules.

But the radiation that the OP observed near her microwave oven is not microwave radiation.

As is the radiation emitted by the microwave oven. Or ...

While youse is all talking about normal EMFs, what about all the trouble that can be caused by rear EMFs?
