You’ve probably heard this story before – during the World War II, two scientists have invented a tube. This tube produced microwaves called – magnetron. They combined the magnetron with Britain’s radar system. They used these microwaves to find the Nazi warplanes on their mission to bomb Great Britain. Few years later, Percy LeBaron Spencer of the Raytheon Company, discovered by accident that these microwaves can also cook food. Percy LeBaron found that radar waves had melted a candy bar in his pocket.
I really think that you’ll be shocked when we tell you that more than 95% of American homes own a microwave. Why? Well, because it’s “useful”! YES, microwaves are awesome, fast, good. But, you should ask yourselves – is it worth it?! Find out…
YES, microwave ovens are bad for our health! Well, how should we start. First, I would like to say a few words about how microwaves “heat” our food. Here’s what really happens – the alternating currents force atoms to reverse their polarity. This process creates a fiction and it vibrates the water inside of the food molecules causing the food to heat up.
But, the question remains – how are microwave ovens dangerous? We can answer that for you. There are more than 2.45 billion hertz inside the microwave oven. This is completely fine, until the seal on the microwave oven ages and it begins to leak. 10 hertz of frequency is more than enough to harm a human body. So, you need to be extra cautious and never stand near an operating microwave. This is because you won’t know your body is harmed by this frequency, until the damage has been done!
The microwave ovens CAN:
- They can cause birth problems
- The microwave ovens can cause cancer
- They can weaken our immune system
- The microwave ovens can cause cataracts – due to our eyes lack of blood vessels to dissipate the cellular stress and heat for the microwave
- Reduced resistance and immunity to viral and bacterial infections
- And, other serious health problems
What does the microwave oven do to your food?
The famous Swiss scientist, Hans Hertel, a Swiss scientist, conducted a study and he discovered found that microwaving food degrades and depletes food of its nutrients. Yes, it breaks the chemical and molecular bonds. Dr. Hans also discovered that the microwave radiation destroys and deforms the molecules in the foods. In this process, it creates dangerous radioactive compounds
Another study, conducted by group of experts at the Search for Health institute, has followed the effects of participants that consumed microwaved vegetables. They experienced many side effects, such as: increased bad cholesterol levels, decrease in hemoglobin causing an anemic-like conditions, decrease in white blood cells, increase in leukocyte (it indicates to poisoning and cell damage)
- The microwaved breast milk loses almost 96% of its antibodies
- The microwave radiation alters the infant formulas’ structure. It changes the components in amino acids, creating immunological abnormalities
The Cold Truth You Must Know:
As we said, even though your microwave oven is perfectly sealed, you are still exposed to harmful levels of electromagnetic fields. The electromagnetic fields, which are also used for x-ray machines, can penetrate the human bodies and can cause some serious health problems. The EPA’s (Environmental Protection Agency) recommended limited exposure to electromagnetic fields is .5 mG – 2.5 mG. So, if you stand 4 inches from your food cooking in the microwave oven, you will be exposed to 100 – 500 mG. While standing 3 feet away from the operating microwave will expose you to 1 – 25 mG.
And, would you believe us if we tell you Russia banned the microwaves since 1976 because they’ve been proven to have negative health problems? Ladies and gentlemen, we al know that the microwave ovens are much faster than the old fashioned ovens. But, wait, is it worth it? You lose the nutritional value of your food and you jeopardize the health of your family, for what? So, think twice before you use microwave oven to heat your food again.
