Microwave Cooking

In today's fast-paced modern world, millions of people depend on the microwave to prepare and heat their food.

Cooking in the microwave oven agitates the molecules in the food to move faster and faster. This has long been rumored to create toxic by-products in food, and reorganize the DNA in the food molecules into forms that are not healthy or usable by the human body.

Microwaving destroys vitamins, minerals and proteins; and generates radiolytic compounds (things that are not found in nature).

It is also said that nothing can regain its molecular integrity after cooking in a microwave oven, except perhaps water. But a recent amateur study with plants shows this may not even be true.

Experiments reported in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, (December 9, 1989) demonstrate that "microwave cooking alters food enough to cause, upon ingestion, structural, functional and immunological changes in the body." The report further states that microwaves transform the amino acid (what proteins are made up of) L-Proline into D-Proline, a proven toxin to the nervous system, liver and kidneys.


Below is a write up of an interesting experiment using microwaved water by a high school aged girl.

A high school aged girl did an experiment on the effect of microwaved water on plants. She used filtered water divided it into two samples. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave.

After cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. The experiment was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
