The danger of using a Microwave oven
I subscribe to the newsletter GreenMedinfo. The information they provide is always very good, the articles are long and detailed, and filled with valuable links. Often I pick up additional information, more detail, or a better explanation of things I already know. Just recently, In the September 11th, 2018 issue of GreenMedInfo’s newsletter, I received one of those hair-raising “modern times” health stories.
The article is written by Ed Bauman, PH.D. and the title is: Studies show Microwaves decimate nutrients in food.
A dangerous invention
Here we go again. What might seem like a clever time saving invention of the modern man (you know as we lead such hectic lives and everything has to be quick) is harmful. In old times the family would meet for the meals and one would talk about what happened during the day. Nowadays there is no time for sitting down and enjoying the food.
I have known for a long time that it was unhealthy to use a microwave oven, and that was the reason I have always refused to have one in my house. My parents did not have one either. Just imagine, I grew up without a TV, but that is another story.
The killing of vitamins and amino acids
Keep in mind that the modern food is full of awful stuff. You can read about GMO foods, pesticides, artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, bad fats, and the list goes on. To then put this low-quality food in the microwave oven, annihilates the nutritional value. Vitamins, amino acids, and other important nutrients, if not annihilated, at least are reduced to such a level where the eating of this food does not represent a health benefit.
I personally love garlic, raw or cooked, and I have it about every day. Never mind the smell. I live in the south of Spain and garlic is a must in most dishes. Well, after heating garlic in the microwave oven, the health benefits (such as garlic’s anti cancer benefits) are destroyed.
This is a special book
The author of the book, G. Viviano, has Sicilian roots. The ancestors came by boat in the very early 1900s. With a condition at birth, which, over time, developed into full-blown migraine at the age of 5, it was a tough childhood. Difficult to socialize in these conditions. Lots of time to read and study. Many years later, the realization came that this had a benefit. I had developed so many immune diseases I studied to find a solution since the doctors were giving me the runaround.
The title: The health dangers of microwave oven cooking and how it causes autism and all autoimmune diseases tells you what this book is about.
The other factor one should not forget. When the microwave oven is on, there is a 20m radius of radiation. Heaven forbid the door does not close hermetically. Then you have an added leakage of radiation. Can you imagine cooking a meal in the kitchen wearing a hazardous response suit similar to the ones used to clean up a nuclear disaster?
Unknown things in our food
From reading this article, I learned something new. This clever invention, besides killing off healthy things in your food, can create new things. These things (radio lytic compounds) are not natural, they do not exist in nature. To me, this all sounds like science fiction. We are invaded by unknown things of which we do not know what the health consequence will be in the long run. Scientists have no idea what these radio lytic compounds will do to you.
I think it to be a good idea that in case you have a microwave oven to throw that monster out of the window. Eat as close to nature as possible and the simple ways of preparing different foods like broiling, cooking, steaming and Wok style are the best. In case you can eat the food in its natural way, meaning raw, it is a good idea to do so, at least now and then. I think a good balance between cooked and raw food is the best.
Extra time versus healthy
I just wonder why again and again we are doing these dangerous things to our-self and to our families. It has been proven that microwave ovens are bad for us. Even if we save time in preparing food it does not outbalance the fact that the food has lost its nutrient value. It even has some unknown compounds added. In the end, you must agree that good health is a lot more important than the bit of extra time gained.
As an afterthought
The sales of the microwave oven seem to be in decline. Probably it becoming so famous was its ability to make popcorn, something which has not helped us to get healthier. Sales are slowing down as most households have a microwave oven already. With some 90 million units spread over the country, it is evident our daily radiation dose has been met. Hopefully, the trend which can be detected as being more conscious about healthy foods, in general, will include getting rid of this monstrous invention.
Modern life holds many things which emit radiations. These include your mobile, laptop, and tablet. There are ways you can protect yourself. One should always try to mitigate the harmful effects of radiation in our life.
