This just in: Motorcycles are dangerous. Don't tell the surgeon general. But Randall Dale Chipkar, author of Motorcycle Cancer?, has been awarded a patent for a motorcycle seat that would block electromagnetic radiation permeating from the engine to the rider.

According to Chipkar's research, extremely low-frequency electromagnetic field radiation produced by a motorbike's engine will not be stopped by steel or even lead, but only by specially-developed "highly-processed" materials. Without such shielding a whole array of unmentionable nether-regional organs are susceptible to cancer and other health hazards. Chipkar intends to license his patents in order to get them on the market as soon as possible, at which point we're sure every Hell's Angel and speed freak will run out and buy one at full speed. Press release after the jump.

PRESS RELEASE

Motorcycle Cancer Seat Patent Granted

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Jan. 8, 2008 /PR Newswire/ -- The United Kingdom has granted a patent to Canadian inventor Randall Dale Chipkar for his innovative 'electromagnetic shielding motorcycle seat'. The invention is designed to shield motorcycle electromagnetic field radiation from penetrating the rider's vital organs.

"I am grateful to the U.K. for sharing my vision and I appreciate their recognition of this serious health concern for motorcyclists. This is a major step in my quest to protect riders worldwide," Chipkar says.

"Various types of extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic field (EMF) radiations have been linked to health disorders including cancer. Many motorcycles generate excessive ELF EMF radiation up through the seat penetrating directly into the rider's groin and torso. The prostate is of major concern as it is one of the closest delicate glands invaded by the radiation. The colon and neighboring organs are also at risk," adds Chipkar.

ELF EMF radiation at close exposure is unnatural and over time could have devastating biological consequences. Major organizations now agree that ELF EMF magnetic fields are a possible carcinogen. People should not have to gamble with their health because they love riding motorcycles. Consumer safety is priority.

"ELF EMF magnetic fields penetrate through steel and even lead. Only highly processed material can dramatically shield us from these cancer controversial forces. With patent protection, we can now aggressively market this innovative shielding seat to provide riders with peace of mind," Chipkar says.

Chipkar adds, " I am now open to licensing or even selling some of my worldwide patents as long as I am assured the seats can reach consumers immediately. Hopefully, this new seat will revolutionize the motorcycle industry to keep riders safer.

"Let's put 'true freedom' back into riding motorcycles!" Chipkar concludes.

Chipkar can be reached through his website at http://www.motorcyclecancer.com where his new book, Motorcycle Cancer?, is also available along with further information.
