Microwaved Foods – Healthy or Dangerous?

I lately received an e-mail asking basically could explain about ‘microwave ovens’, eating ‘microwaved food’ etc. So here you go.

This news isn’t good, if you like ‘ignorance is bliss’, now may well be a great time to ‘accidentally’ have something easier to do! Whenever we consider ‘natural’ health & well-being, it might seem sensible that people may wish to ‘cook’ our food inside a ‘natural’ way.

It does not take much intuition to understand that microwaving the food, is all about as ‘unnatural’ a method to prepare the food as possible. Does not the very fact we make use of the terms, ‘zap’ it or ‘nuke’ it within the microwave, send a chill your spine and suggest something is wrong here?

A vital point is the fact that microwaves don’t really ‘cook’ the food whatsoever. They essentially just warm up water content from the food and make the food particles to resonate at high frequencies. This ‘heats up’ the food, but this is extremely not the same as ‘cooking’ the food.

It’s much like your meals are heated but nonetheless ‘raw’. It does not alter the chemical structure of the food correctly (and in some cases deforms the meals molecules), thus substantially lowering your foods dietary value. Worse however, is the fact that microwaves can (in most cases do) create dangerous compounds that can result in serious problems/disease (high cholesterol levels, cancer etc). * Begin to see the research further lower.

Now, before you begin cursing me again to make you are feeling bad (since you love your microwave and think existence could be hell without them), remember, like several the tips we give, you have to make sure they are practical but still have the ability to function and revel in existence. However, while a bit in some places will not kill you (not immediately anyway!) – regular intakes really are a real problem.

Essentially, microwaves decay and alter the dwelling of food by the entire process of ‘radiation’. Do you consider when they were marketed as “radiation ovens”, they’d be very popular? Not a way, but that is exactly what they’re. To put it simply, you’re disturbingOrtroubling the ‘natural intelligence’ from the food (that is probably the most important a part of any food).

Why wouldn’t we learn more regarding their unwanted effects when they were so bad? Essentially, for the similar reason we do not learn about many of what jeopardize our overall health (until years after), vested interests and ‘heads within the sand’. Many people don’t wish to quit something which is really ‘convenient’!!! So that as modern science does not value the truth that there’s more to preparing food, than simply heating up, insufficient proper scientific studies are being carried out. It is simply another situation of contemporary society, attempting to use ‘technology’ in order to save time… regrettably at the fee for our overall health & well-being.


1. Stay away from microwaves/eating microwaved food whenever you can.

Yes, I understand you are busy, you do not have time for you to prepare and it’s all too easy to simply ‘zap’ it within the microwave. I understand I am being Scrooge again, and it is actually are simple to say “Avoid using microwaves”, but this can be a large one.

There’s most likely not too a number of other things you could do this to enhance your lengthy-term health greater than tossing your microwave the window… or at best utilizing it much more sparingly.

Personally, I believe you’re best to buy and go some half decent take-away (non-microwaved) than consistently eating ‘zapped’ food (seriously!)

2. THAWING FOODS isn’t so bad:

If you wish to make use of your microwave for thawing frozen foods, that isn’t so bad. Will still be far better to allow them thaw out naturally, but utilizing a microwave for this function and cooking the food ‘naturally’ isn’t as bad as really ‘cooking’ together with your microwave.


Never heat the food within the microwave using plastic containers. When microwaving, cancer causing toxins could be leached out of your plastic and paper plates or covers and blend together with your food. This especially pertains to foods which contain fat. The mixture of fat, high temperature, and plastics releases dioxin (Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially cancer of the breast) in to the food and eventually in to the cells from the body.
