Nowadays Microwave oven has become an inevitable equipment in every kitchen, people can’t even think about cooking their favourite recipes without this ‘magical’ equipment. But here we are trying to uncover some of the facts normal people are not aware of about the harmful effects of microwave oven.
As per the reports of SMECC – The Southwest Museum of Engineering, Communication, and Computation, above 95 % of people residing in America use “Microwave Owens” regularly for their daily cooking needs.
First and foremost fact is, these Microwave Ovens actually sold as “Radaranges” use technology which transmits EM Waves (Electromagnetic Waves) through food, exciting molecules which results them to move and getting heated as they confront to the microwave radiation.
The energy associated with Microwaves are electromagnetic energy and these waves travel at the same speed of light. The wave energy produced in Microwave Oven is because of the Magnetron (Magnetron is an electron tube for amplifying or generating microwaves, with the flow of electron controlled by an external magnetic field). This wave energy produced by the Magnetron in the microwave oven converts polarity of any molecules from positive to negative. In the Microwave Oven, this polarity changes millions and millions of times every second. The electromagnetic wave from Microwave Oven bombard the food molecules and force the polarized molecule to radiate at the same frequency millions of times every matter of second. This friction makes the food heat up and also leads to cause ‘Structural Isomerism’ in simple term that is, structural change of the food molecules.
Effects of Microwaved Food
A study led by Dr Hans Hertel, a biologist and food scientist at Switzerland found out the effects of microwaved food. The study was done with eight people under a fully controlled system for eight weeks, where they intermittently ate raw food, conventionally cooked food and Microwaved food. After each meal their blood samples were tested properly. The blood chemistry has changed significantly who consumed Microwaved food.
How Electromagnetic Radiation affects the Food?
“Electromagnetic radiations bounce around the inside of your Microwave Oven and absorbed by the food you put in it.” – writes Dr. Joseph M Mercola, licensed Physician, and Surgeon. The rotation of water molecules rapidly in the microwave and in the food in high frequencies which leads to create high molecular friction and heats up your favourite food. This causes the change in molecular structure of the food, and as a result of that, the nutrient content in the food diminishes rapidly.
Dr Hans Hertel states: “There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts. This is how Microwave heat is generated for cooking – friction from this violence in water molecules structures, the structure of molecules are forcefully deformed (Structural Isomerism) and thus become impaired in quality”.
Have you ever wondered the food which prepared in the Microwave Oven was cooked unevenly?
This is because of the electromagnetic wave from the Microwave Oven mostly confront with the water molecules present inside the Oven and food particles. Since all food particles not having the same amount of water molecules which leads to food cooks unevenly.
Another study at Stanford University found out the effect of microwaving breast milk. One of the head researchers said “Microwaving human milk, even at a low setting, can destroy some of its disease-fighting capabilities.” They claimed that besides of heating the milk, the microwave results in making other alteration in the milk.
Health Issues from Microwaved Food:
- Permanent Brain Damage
- Increase Cancerous Cells in Human Blood
- Stomach and Intestinal Cancerous Growths
- Immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and serum alterations
- Memory loss, lack of concentration, emotional instability, and decrease of intelligence
Now is the time for all of us to rethink and act intelligently to protect yourself from dangerous, deadly and hazardous health issues from Microwaved food. So next time when you decide to switch on the microwave oven, think twice!
