What are radio waves?
If you can’t see it, how do you know it’s there?
The difference between radio waves and God:
• Whilst radio waves are invisible to the human eye, they carry everyday information thousands of miles every day, drastically changing the way that we as humans, act.
• Radio waves don’t just have to be used in radio. Whilst radio waves seem to be primarily used in this way, they actually have many different forms in our world – wireless technology in mobile phone to MRI scans and radiotheraphy in hospitals.
• God hasn’t yet cured cancer – radio may well do.
Radio waves work by transmitting information on a specific frequency. If you were to tune a receiver to this frequency, you could then receive whatever information being transmitted by the set.

This PowerPoint presentation covers the uses of radio waves outside of the typical use – listening to them, via an amplifier.
The recent developments in technology mean a lot more can be done with a simple piece of technology. 5 years you could connect a device to your iPod, which would then transmit radio waves into the ether – letting you play your music through an analogue radio (as long as you could find a free wave!).
This technology had limitations – if you were driving along a bumpy road on a cloudy day, it would be very difficult to keep a constant stream from the iPod. Using an FM frequency meant that there would also be difficulties in built up areas.
So what’s changed? Why can we do so much now that we couldn’t before? Why does the Gadget Guy’s in-car pasta maker (in the Toyota advert) get beaten by a car that can pick up music directly – and wirelessly, from a mobile?
What can radio waves can do?
Wiping out bees
Tagging and Tracking
Cure for Cancer
Whilst this presentation will focus on a few main uses, there many uses for radio waves, some of which are listed above
Radio – A cure for cancer?
John S. Kanzius
(March 1, 1944 – February 18, 2009)
The main issues surrounding cancer cures is the difficulty of destroying the cancer cells – without damaging healthy ones.
Radiation therapy specifically has this issue – but testing and cases show that it can be used to cure cancer. The danger of radiation therapy, and the reason it is so frequently used in conjunction with chemotherapy is the damage to healthy , surrounding healthy cells. This can sometimes cause more damage than help.
John S. Kanzius created the concept of radio waves treating cancer cells. Unlike chemotherapy and radiation therapy, radiotherapy has the potential to treat surrounding cells – and not damaging the healthy ones. This manipulation of radio waves is a massive development for medical science.
Radio – The end of Bees
Scientists say that the end of bees will coincide with the end of the world, but nobody really know what is killing them. Or do they?
