Does LENR produce harmful radiations?

  • Ed Lewis has asked me to post some supplementary information on the topic of Plasmoids:-


    As per the recent Bagdonovich et al paper, "Video Recording of Long-Lived Plasmoids near Objects Exposed to Remote and Direct Effects of High-Current Pinch Discharges," I wanted to point out that in the first paragraph where they wrote about "periodic discharge in a flow of discharge (PDFL)," that Ken Shoulders experimented with discharge through liquid in the 1980s. He experimentally pioneered the study of these anomalous microplasmoids.


    They did what I have long been advocating that people do which is to use video cameras to record the plasmoids being formed and what happens. It is important research.


    Matsumoto had tried doing this with his experiments in the 1990s with some success, but the video equipment at that time was much more expensive. Ken Shoulders tried doing this with the old-style tape VCRs (video recorders) in the 1980s. But now, simple and inexpensive cameras or phones can be used with relatively inexpensive microscopes and lenses to catch good quality video of these things and the processes happening such as the motion and changes of plasmoid patches over surfaces.


    Bob Greenyer showed a video about this paper here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO-X58PfqIU


    Tornadoes

    They wrote about tornadoes: Here is an early paper where I discussed Tornadoes and Ball Lightning: http://padrak.com/ine/ELEWIS3.html


    For background the plasmoid effects and my theory in the 1990s, this is a good paper. I presented this at the 1996 2nd LENR Conference in Texas. But it wasn't published as part of the proceedings because Hal Fox refused to publish it along with all the other papers though I had presented this work there. My paper was the only one he didn't publish. http://padrak.com/ine/ELEWIS7.html


    Superfluidity



    They wrote about superfluidity and Cooper pairs. I wrote about superfluidity and superconductivity in this article: Considerations about Plasmoid Phenomena and Superconductivity Phenomena 1995, 1996 http://padrak.com/ine/ELEWIS5.html


    Dark Toroids


    In the video by Greenyer, he discussed another article as well. It was a 2008 article titled: "Features of the Periodic Discharge in the Fluid Flow and the Specifics of Its Impact on the Electrode Material." In that article, there are pictures of dark rings. They reminded me of two things.


    In the early 1990s, two Russian researchers published pictures of dark micrometer-sized plasmoid rings (reminded me of sunspots) that formed on their electrodes during electrical discharge. I described that I suspected that these objects could fly off the electrodes as flying plasmoids. I was surprised because in the paper, they said it was general knowledge that electrode materials during electrical discharge show fluid-like behavior at temperatures below the metal's melting point.


    I am trying to find the citation for that Russian paper. It had been recently published (maybe 1992) when I found it in a Russian journal. I wrote about the plasmoid rings and their pictures in several articles if I remember correctly. I think one was a 1992, 1993 article called "A Description of Phenomena According to My Theory and Experiments to Test It."



    The other thing the pictures remind me of is M87 that people have just recently (this year) been able to make a picture of. I think is a ring plamoid out in space.

  • Thanks to our member SERGEI for giving us a link to this journal- papers by Vysotsky, Parkhomov in others. However I have picked out a paper on a theme developed here by Ed Lewis on the health effects of strange radiation- a particular interest of his.

    annotation

    On the basis of experimental data, an attempt was made to estimate the level of the damaging effects of strange radiation. Attention is drawn to the fact that in the human body this agent will cause damage to “loose” organs, such as the lungs, alimentary canal, joints, bone cavities, red blood cells, white blood cells, as well as affect the surface of the eyes, mouth, nose and ears. It is shown that this exposure with a high degree of probability leads to the destruction of red blood cells, and damage to leukocytes can lead to leukemia.

    1. Field of the Invention

    The embodiments and aspects described herein relate to the generation of ionizing radiation in an electrically controllable manner at temperatures, pressures, and electric field strengths.


    2. Background Art

    Current art teaches several methods for the production or generation and use of ionizing radiation ionizing radiation is produced spontaneously by the decay of radioactive materials. In addition, ionizing radiation is produced by nuclear fission and by nuclear fusion. However, electrically controlled generation of ionizing radiation is most commonly achieved by either the acceleration of charged particles or ions, e.g., synchrotron radiation, or by the deceleration of charged particles, e.g., x-ray radiation. Recently, the ability to produce ionizing radiation was described in U.S. Pat. No. 8,419,919 titled “SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR GENERATING PARTICLES,” U.S. Pat. No. 8,419,919 teaches that properly prepared electrochemical cells utilizing a liquid electrolyte will produce multiple forms of ionizing radiation during electrolysis.

    As distinguished from current art, one novel feature of the gaseous-phase ionizing radiation generator described herein is that electrically-controlled ionizing radiation may be produced utilizing a gas or vapor which greatly extends breadth of applications for the ionizing radiation that is produced. Another novel feature of the gaseous-phase ionizing radiation generator is that naturally radioactive materials may not be required.


    SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

    The inventive features of this novel gaseous-phase ionizing radiation generator device, also known herein as a cell or radiation generator cell, include: a device for the voltage controlled production and flux of one or more forms of ionizing electromagnetic and/or particulate radiation; a device to produce ionizing radiation that does not require the use of, materials that are normally considered to be naturally radioactive; a means or device to collect and convert into electricity the particulate radiation that is generated by the radiation generator cell; a device that generates electricity from the ionized gas within the cell by means of an auxiliary electrode structure composed of electrodes of alternating work function; and a method or procedure for the fabrication and the activation of at least one working electrode composed in part of palladium host material electrodeposited from a light water aqueous solution of PdCl 2 and LiCl salts at a temperature essentially at or below the Debye temperature of palladium. In some embodiments, performance may be enhanced by heating the working electrode, operation at a gas or vapor pressure above or below atmospheric, operation at a gas or vapor temperature greater than 100° C., and the inclusion of a magnetic field that permeates the hydrogen host material of the working electrode to alter the dynamic motion of the atoms therein, or a combination of these enhancements.

  • Hard UV and soft X rays that can be blocked by a metal foil or light ceramic container are considered ionizing radiation?
