Microwave risks

Reaching for a frozen entrée from your freezer, reading the simple directions on the back, and popping it into the microwave oven can lead to a meal that took a total of three minutes. And it's a modern convenience utilized in many American households.


Here's the truth: while your frozen meal may consist of Lean Cuisine-type products with healthy ingredients and low calories, the way you cook your food directly affects the amount of nutrients your body consumes. This common household appliance can significantly zap the nutritional value of your food and your health, leaving you susceptible to developing health complications due to continuous microwave use, and begging the question: is convenience worth sacrificing your health?

Microwaves Zap 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” due to the dielectric heating of microwaves. “They bounce around the inside of your [microwave] oven and are absorbed by the food you put in it,” writes Dr. Joseph Mercola, a licensed physician and surgeon. 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.

This isn't to say that ALL microwaved food is bad but you will never know when the harm is done because you don't feel the effects until later. This is what makes microwaves such a risk and cause for disease and toxin build up. In order to lower your risks of microwave dangers you should stick to a diet of fresh fruits and veggies whenever possible. In addition, you can use all natural wellness products to balance out toxins while using the microwave less.
