For the better part of 40 years microwave ovens have been a homemaker and cooks best friend.  Try to think back to a time that you did not use them to heat up a cup of coffee or pop that great and buttery popcorn that’s ready in minutes and has you plopped on the couch good and ready for that great action movie that just came out.

But the question has always been at the back of many peoples head as to the healthiness of foods that are blasted with electrons which change the molecular structure and composition of the nutrients as they fly ballistically through them, rather than using a continuous stream of electrons.

Many of the quick side effects of microwave exposure like on the job, like fast food restaurants for example will experience sleep disturbances, headaches and irritability just from being around an operating microwave.  One thing that no one has even pointed out is to the construction of the microwave box itself and what it used to shield you from the deadly radio waves that it used to cook your food. If it was made of lead which could prevent the waves from coming out of the microwave and going through your body then it would weight a whole lot more than the one in your kitchen does go ahead and see for yourself and go to your kitchen and move your microwave around and you will see that it weighs less than you would think.  It seems to me that if the makers of microwaves really cared about our health they would line the microwaves with solid and heavy material so that the deadly waves do not go into their customers and eventually kill them as it is them who they depend on to keep them in business, the mentality!

When heating a baby’s bottle you must do it by heating it under hot warm tap water or by putting into a warm water pot and not in the microwave as the electrons will not only change the composition of the baby’s milk but also heat the plastic itself and causes harmful and deadly gases to be released into the milk and thus putting your child in danger of various health hazards like cancer and tumors. So if heating a baby’s milk in the microwave is bad because it alters the composition and structure of the milk or formula then it also alters the protective properties in the foods and drinks that we consume.  So if you’re on a microwave food diet you better think again before it’s too late as a regular diet of microwaved food may have horrible and deadly long-term health consequences.

Blood samples taken from eight individuals immediately after eating microwaved food revealed by two Swiss researchers found that microwave cooking changes food nutrients significantly and increases the number of white blood cells in your blood which is often a sign of poisoning.

The saddest part about all of this is that many out there know of no other way to cook as they have been trained by fast foods and loads of microwave snacks and meals ready in minutes. The best thing for me to tell you is to sell or throw your microwave away and replace it with a small convection oven which uses of all things heat to cook the food and although it will take a little longer at least you will not be going to the doctor’s office to complain about strange hair loss, or blood in your urine or even unexplained migraines nor going to the grave 30 years before you’re really due to.

 

 

The Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) of the USDA warns against using plastic wraps, foam trays, and cold-storage containers such as cottage cheese cartons, margarine tubs, whipped-topping bowls and in microwaves and even according to the FSIS flyer “A Microwave Handbook,” these containers are not heat stable at high temperatures. They can melt or warp from the food’s heat, possible causing chemicals to migrate into the food.”

My best advice for you is to learn to cook on a stove and range if you do not know already as there really is no excuse for anyone to use as you can simply google recipes and even Youtube How to cook… and you will learn right there.

For the sake of your health and the health of your loving family and finances think about these things as when it all boils down it is your choice as to how you want to eat and live.
