Danger of the Microwave

Find out some of the dangers of the microwave.

In January 2012 in the “O Magazine”, reporter Jennifer Kahn interviewed Dr. Gary Small, a director of UCLA’s Longevity Center on preventing or even possibly reversing the side effects of Alzheimer’s, this is what he says.  “According to our data, if everyone in the Untied States adopted one additional healthy lifestyle habit, the number of expected Alzheimer’s cases would be reduced by a million in the next five years.”


I devoted the last two years to reading everything that I could put my hands on about preventing major disease of the 21-century, caner, heart attacks, strokes and Alzheimer’s.  The above rules of Dr. Small apply to any of my listed illnesses.  Based on my findings, I will give you a few choices which can take you from just making it to thriving.  Lets start from the     


Only three days ago we received an email from Karen Johnson, who is our supplier of organic products, on the dangers of using the microwave.  We asked for her permission to put that email on our facebook and Patch and she granted that request because her goal is to spread the news to as many people as possible.  Please read it and you will probably never microwave again.


 I also would like you to know that almost all restaurants use microwaves to warm up either soup, tea or coffee or to defreeze pre-cooked meals. However, I found a restaurant in Deerfield that does not even own a microwave.  It is Rosebud, located on the intersection of Central and Waukegan. You can find more locations on their website www.rosebudrestaurants.com.  They gave me a tour of their kitchen to prove their statement.  They also make all their pastas and sauces from scratch which makes them healthier because they do not include preservatives. 


Microwave test - an eye opener

Very interesting! Is it time to act?

A girl in a secondary school in Sussex, presented a science fair project on watering one regular house hold plant with water boiled on a stove and another with water boiled in a microwave ,to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave.  She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by the microwave.  As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.


The identical plants were set up right by each other in the same room, in the same light.  They were watered at the same time every time, the only difference was the water.  Day after day you could see the plant which was watered with the microwaved water was dieing and the other plant was still in great shape.  Finally, on the ninth day of observation, the plant watered with stove boiled water was alive and healthy and the plant watered with the microwaved water was dead.


For many years people thought that radiation from the microwave was the danger, that’s a myth.  The problem is in the way it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.  Microwaves don't work in different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.  So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Imagine all the Mothers who heat up milk in these 'Safe' appliances, not knowing that they are depriving their babies of valuable, for their age, nutrients. But the makers say it's safe, its in the proof of the science experiment of living plants dying!!!


 Reasons to dispose off your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, one can conclude this article with the following:


 1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term - permanent - brain damage by 'shorting out' electrical impulses in the brain

(de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue).


 2). The human body cannot metabolize (break down) the unknown by-products

 created in microwaved food.


 3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by

 continually eating microwaved foods.


4). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients in all microwaved food are reduced or

 altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body

 absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.


 5). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals

 when cooked in microwave ovens.


 6). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths

 (tumours). This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in UK and



 7). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to

 increase in the human blood.


8). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system

 deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.


 9). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration,

 emotional stability, and a decrease of intelligence.

If you do not like to cook, go raw.  Also include juices and smoothies.

I would love to see some type of scientific support for the alarming statements made in this article - could you provide citations? 30 seconds on google revealed the science fair story to be a hoax that has been circulating for a while: http://www.snopes.com/science/microwave/plants.asp Eating healthy foods is difficult enough without ditching one of our easiest preparation tools over misinformation like this.

OK, had a few minutes to waste (literally). The entire email from Karen Johnson, "supplier of organic products", has been floating around since 2006 and been thoroughly debunked. Google any portion of the text under the section titled "Reasons to dispose off (sic) your Microwave Oven" and you will get results like http://msgboard.snopes.com/message/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/39/t/000976.html Come on, ReNu, why would you fabricate stuff like this?

@Dad - Glad I read the comments before taking the minute out of my own busy day to debunk this irresponsible posting my self.

HA HA HA! Wow...thanks for the laugh of the day. You took a hoax, posted it to look like a truth, and made people react like you really meant it. I love it! Nicely done.
