Antoine Priore graduated from a school of electricity in Trieste, Italy and became a radar operator in the Italian Navy. During this period he observed what to him was an exciting anomaly; some oranges left in the room filled with electrical bric-a-brac had fallen into an assemblage where they seemed to have been preserved in the same fresh state they had enjoyed when bought off a fruit stand. Other oranges in the room, bought at the same time, were rotten and putrid. Stunned by his observation, Priore dreamed throughout the war of one day working out an electrical means of conserving foods in their fresh state based on what was a new, and wholly unexplained, principle. Newton’s apple had become Priore’s orange.

We should note that a radar broadcast consists of a highly modulated microwave emission, or as they are known the radar microwave pulses.

Though most people know about the Newton’s apples, nobody knows about the Priore oranges. However, Foodco, a subsidiary company of Maxwell Laboratories and a company engaged in food preserving, seems to know much about oranges. They are developing a food preserving modality based on strong electrical pulses (electroporation).

After the war Priore purchased surplus equipment and eventually developed a strange machine that filled an entire room. A nozzle above a table in the center of the room emitted a strong ray or field, which Priore explained consisted of an electromagnetic wave in a magnetic field. Eventually the French government spent almost three million dollars for construction of a new, improved Priore machine, because Priore had shown he could cure cancers in laboratory animals with the first device.

In 1964 Professor Robert Courrier, a renowned biologist and the secretaire-perpetuel of the French Academy of Sciences, presented some of Priore’s results to the Academy. Forty-eight cancerous rats had been divided into two groups of twenty-four each. One group was set-aside without treatment as a control, and the other group was divided into two subgroups of twelve each. The Priore machine treated one of these subgroups promptly after the cancer grafts, and the other was treated after a lapse of several days. Both subgroups were completely cured- the first quickly and the second after more prolonged treatment. All the control rats died in twenty-two to thirty days after grafting.

The results created a furor and a controversy that have continued to the present day. Since the first presentation by Courrier, the machine repeatedly cured leukemia and other forms of cancer in laboratory animals. The controversy seems to have arisen because the French Academicians could not comprehend the working of the machine, and because the inventor would not reveal how it worked but only how it was built.

The device Priore developed simulated powerful radar pulses modulated by three series of frequencies; one subsonic (0.5 to 2 Hz), one audio (300 to 900 Hz) and one high to VHF radio frequency (16 to 300 MHz). The Priore device could be theorized to excite intercellular activity, to increase Electroporosity of cells- enhancing the in-and-out exchange of materials of the cell, which eventually increased metabolism. Probably intense exposure may cause the more evident effects of Electroporation, i.e. create bigger pores on the cell membrane and even bursting weak cell membranes or weak organism’s membranes. May necrotize cancer cells by bursting the weak cancer cell membrane and kill the microorganism (as it was reported in numerous papers to the French Academy of Science).

In 1974 a change in local government lost Priore his government supporters. His support and funding were lost and subsequent attempts to restore his technology into the public domain were viciously suppressed.
