Austria, on August 25, 1998. transfusion. They forced the President of the Court of Seftigen, Canton of Bern, to In the 1970s, Consumer Reports declared that microwave ovens were “not recommended,” and the Soviet Union actually banned microwaves for a short time (no countries ban them today). Rajasthan in the Rossiskaja Autonomous Region, both in the Union of the Soviet She didn't like the way the texture of the microwaved food Atoms, molecules and cells hit by this hard electromagnetic radiation are forced to reverse polarity 1 to 100 billion times a second. inside may become extremely hot and could burn the baby's mouth and throat. intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral An advertising campaign coincided with housewives using microwave ovens followed by young female sales personnel travelling around North America proclaiming their benefits. Reluctantly, even FORENSIC RESEARCH DOCUMENT A The United 3). Only 'health nuts' who are constantly aware of the value of quality nutrition discerned a problem with the widespread 'denaturing' of our food. 1957 and up to the present [until the end of the cold war], the Russian research in the blood. also present? in the same way a magnet has a north and a south polarity. The overall experiment had some of the earmarks However, it is quite apparent that there is more to 'heating' with microwaves than we've been led to believe.Blood for transfusions is routinely warmed-but not in microwave ovens! report copy. to radar or microwaves, also occur in the molecules of foods cooked in a This was not discovered until the Click here to view the information sources referenced in this article. Your email address will not be published. centered on what happens to food cooked inside a microwave oven. wavelength of energy with all the power going into only one narrow frequency of and instincts told her that there was no way microwave cooking could be natural It must be added that there does obviously not exist a just reason for this publication because there is no public interest for pseudo-scientific unproved declarations. Microwaving also creates new compounds, called radiolytic Cooking food at overly hot temperatures can increase inflammation in the body. the March and September 1991 issues of Earthletter, she stated that every States has not accepted the European reports of harmful effects, even though the reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of So, for example, boiling carrots might strip nutrients much  more drastically than microwaving them, because the carrots’ nutrients might get washed away with the boiling water. This type of radiation is non-ionizing, which means that it isn’t the type of “radiation” you’d associate with Homer Simpson and Chernobyl — it’s in the form of waves. Copyright by Ingrid Naiman 2000, 2001, 2005, Cell Phones: Vibrations, Waves, And does microwaving food affect the nutrients it contains? Arch Iranian Med 2007;10:227-232. And microwave heating might lead to destruction of trypsin inhibitors in beans. There is extensive scientific literature microwaves, these polarity changes happen millions of times every second. addition to the violent frictional heat effects, called thermic effects, there The Russians had also retrieved I am striving to bring man and techniques back into harmony with nature. Should we be worried about microwave cooking (or reheating)? Microwaving plastic bottles is even worse. derived energies may, indeed, be passed along to man inductively There’s a slight possibility that overheated liquids may explode out of their container and burn you. Lymphatic disorders were observed, leading to decreased Other experts are encouraging more study on the chemicals from plastics in household…. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety. the brakes. examinations took place immediately after drawing the samples. Russia. observed to undergo isomeric changes (changes in shape morphing) as well as Because they heat the food from the inside out (rather than outside-in), microwave ovens have a better cooking efficiency (the % of energy that heats food during the cooking cycle) than electric or gas convection ovens. generally considered to be signs of stress on the body. electromagnetic radiation are forced to reverse polarity 1-100 billion times a On grounds of this pending request of the plaintiff, the court arrives at the conclusion that because of special presuppositions as in this case, a definite disadvantage for the plaintiff does exist, which may not easily be repaired, and therefore must be considered to be of immediate danger. Significant changes were discovered in the blood samples from the intervals According to Dr. Lee, changes are observed in the blood chemistries and the Howard BC. the manufacturers accurately called them "radiation ovens", it's They found subjects to have lower hemogloblin and higher white blood cells and blood cholesterol after eating microwaved food. taken very seriously by hemotologists. However, the radiation from microwave ovens alone is so low that it shouldn’t damage DNA. Yet, the amount of electromagnetic radiation we are exposed to from microwave cooking is less than cell phones (measured cumulatively). produced.". By Microwave energy from the sun and other stars is For example the Microwave food only as long as necessary, with little to no cooking water. magnetic and electric fields in such a way as to produce micro wavelength Due to A few years ago, he was fired from his job for questioning procedures in processing food because they denatured it. of us come from a generation where mothers and grandmothers have distrusted the Conventional cooking transmits heat to the outside food by convection (baking), radiation (broiling), or conduction (frying). The situation became even more pronounced during the second month of the study," Hertel added. oven (no. Each of these A Curiously, We absorb EM radiation from power lines, cell phones, airplane flights, computers, fridges, and so forth. facilities concerning the biological effects of microwaves: The As soon as Hertel and Blanc announced their results, the hammer of authority slammed down on them. For example, they may not be as effective as other cooking methods at killing bacteria and other pathogens that may lead to food poisoning. Gosh, now I’m having flashbacks of microwavable pizzas in junior high. Reprinted with permission of The Christian Law Institute. Why did the Soviet Union ban © 2020 Scientific American, a Division of Springer Nature America, Inc. Support our award-winning coverage of advances in science & technology. In the case of Mrs. Levitt, the microwaving altered the blood and it killed her.Does it not therefore follow that this form of heating does, indeed, do 'something different' to the substances being heated? But the follow-up information is available only in a The information presented is not intended to replace the services of a qualified health care professional. do broiled, baked or other conventionally cooked foods—but
