Microwave ovens are kitchen appliances which are used to cook or reheat food by emitting microwaves. Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation and are on the low energy end of the energy spectrum, second to radio waves.
The waves are generated by something called a magnetron – something found within every microwave oven.
While conventional ways of heating/cooking your food HEAT/COOK your food, microwaves heat/cook YOU.
It is known that microwave radiation can heat body tissue the same way it heats food. Exposure to high levels of microwaves can cause a painful burn.
Here are 3 Reasons Why You Should Stop Microwaving Your Food
Microwaves Reduces Food Nutrition
Heating your food in the microwave can strip away its original nutrients. What may have started as a nutritious plate of food has now evolved into “dead food.” The water molecules rotate rapidly in the microwave and in the food in high frequencies which creates molecular friction and heats up your food. This causes the molecular structure in your food to change, and as a result diminishes the nutrient content in the food.
Microwaves Create Carcinogens In Food
When you head foods that are wrapped in plastic in the microwave, you can create carcinogens in the food. A carcinogen is any substance, radionuclide, or radiation that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer. The plastic containers used to heat these microwave meals have been found to release the carcinogens along with other harmful toxins into your food which is then absorbed by your body.
Microwaves Can Change Your Heart Rate
Microwaves can produce effects on your body instantly due to radiation. If you experience irregular heart beat or any chest pain and regularly eat microwaved food, it might be best to discontinue use.
