Microwaves, are they safe?

Microwaves, are they a source of danger???
Since the 1960s we have been told that microwave cooking is time-saving, convenient, energy saving and ‘safe’, but is it?

Much research says NO. If you are sceptical, do this little experiment at home.
Plant seeds in two pots. Water one with water that has been micro-waved (then cooled) and the other with regular tap water. The seeds that received micro-waved water won’t sprout. If micro-waved water stops plants from growing, think what it can do your health!

Many different studies have found that eating micro-waved foods over time causes detrimental effects in the body.
It causes significant changes in blood chemistry and a weakening of the immune system, which can lead to a lessening of the body’s ability to protect its self against cancers.

The effect on micro-waving breast milk has been studied and showed that even at a low setting, micro-waving can destroy some of the important disease fighting capabilities. Never micro-wave breast milk.

Research has also shown that micro-waved foods lowered the bio-availability of Vitamins C, E and B complex as well as some essential minerals.

Microwave ovens ‘cook’ by forcing the atoms, molecules and cells within foods to reverse polarity billions of times per second causing friction – the more friction, the more heat. This oscillation tears and deforms the molecular structure of food.

New compounds, called radiolytic compounds are formed, which are not found in nature. Microwaves destroy the life force that gives food its vitality and nourishment.

Apart from these observations there is the more obvious problem in that because microwaves are commonly used to simply quick heat food, they often do not heat evenly.

This often results in food ‘boiling’ on the outside while still being cool on the inside, leaving foods open to contamination with salmonellosis and listeriosis through insufficient cooking. Chicken would be a prime example of a food in which this can easily happen, leading to gastroenteritis like problems.
