Unfortunately, many of them are not aware that using microwave can be one of the worst things you can use to cook your food in, so we strongly recommend you to reconsider your choice of using a microwave!
How do microwave ovens heat/cook out food
Microwave ovens work by emitting microwaves, a type of electromagnetic radiation that runs on low energy end of the energy spectrum, thus cooking or reheating foods.
The waves are generated by the magnetron, found in every microwave oven. Water needs to be present in the substance which is about to be heated because if there isn’t any water, heating will not occur.
This is because the water molecules in the food vibrate very fast, which in turn forms molecular friction, responsible for heating the food.
How are microwave ovens dangerous
There are 2.45 billion hertz inside the microwave, which is considered as okay while the microwave is new. But, it begins to leak as the seal on the door ages.
10 hertz is the frequency amount which can harm the body. So, you should be very cautious when operating the microwave because you will not know that your body is being harmed by the leak until it becomes too late!
How does a microwave oven harm our bodies
- Causes birth defects
- Weakened immune system
- Lowered resistance to viral and bacterial infections
- More serious illnesses
What does the microwave oven do to our food
Hans Herte is a Swiss scientist whose study proved that microwaving foods can deplete the food of its essential nutrients. The radiation from a microwave can destroy and deform the molecules of the food, thus creating dangerous radioactive compounds.
Microwaving infants formulas changes the formula structure, altering the components into amino acids and creating immunological abnormalities while microwaved breast milk loses 96 % of its antibodies.
The Search for Health has studies the effects of individuals who consumed microwaved veggies. The results showed that the participants experienced:
- Decrease in white blood cells
- Decrease in hemoglobin causing an anemic like conditions
- Increase in leukocyte (indicating poisoning and cell damage)
- Rapidly increasing cholesterol levels
It is very important to know that even though the microwave is well sealed, you will still be exposed to detrimental levels of electromagnetic fields that can penetrate your body and lead to many serious health problems.
