For an appliance known to be so dangerous, it’s amazing that microwave ovens are currently found in a staggering 90% of homes in the US. In fact, you may be one of the thousands upon thousands of people who own a microwave; you could be heating your dinner up in it right now. But we’d like to think that if you knew the real risks attached to this bulky kitchen gadget, you’d rethink your decision about allowing one to take up precious space in your kitchen.
Today’s National Microwave Oven Day – and we realized there’s no better time to discuss the perils of owning one. Here are just five reasons why you might bypass that budget microwave meal and cook up something tasty and nutritious tonight.
- Cancer prevented and cured – Did you know that one of the main causes of cancer, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, attention deficit disorder, fibromyalgia, arthritis, lupus and lymphatic disorders is due to eating microwaved food? It doesn’t matter if food has been microwaved for just a few seconds; it loses the B-Complex, as well as essential C and E vitamins. It’s worth noting, then, that an electromagnetic chaos eliminator will help reduce your exposure to the energy coming from not just microwaves, but computers, TVs, wireless devices and satellite transmissions.
- Research has shown that continually eating food that’s been heated in a microwave can cause long-term – even permanent – brain damage by ‘shorting out’ electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing brain tissue]. Plus, research has shown that the body can’t metabolize the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.
- Regular consuming microwaved food can cause loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and even a decrease in intelligence.
- You may suffer from what’s known as ‘microwave sickness’. Tissues directly exposed to microwaves are subject to the same deformities molecules go through, which in turn can cause you to experience a feeling of nausea, as well as vision problems, impaired cognition, a weakened immune system and even depression and irritability.
- Swiss food scientists Hans Hertel initiated the first tests on microwaved food to determine how microwaves affect human physiology and the blood. The results revealed that microwaving your dinner leads to food degeneration, which can cause changes in the blood which may result in elevated cholesterol levels, production of radiolytic compounds and decreased hemoglobin levels, which may indicate anemia.
