You are hungry but you don’t have time to cook. The first thing you do is use your microwave oven to prepare a quick meal. Isn’t that a huge time saver? With it, your meal is ready in few seconds. But have you ever thought that this electrical appliance might be harmful to your health?

microwave radiation

Nowadays, more than 80% of the world population uses microwaves, without knowing the consequences of using them and how this electrical appliance works.

Microwave ovens heat the food by producing electromagnetic radiation. This radiation “provokes vibration that causes the water molecules in the food to resonate at very high frequencies and generate heat.” This process heats the food, but on the other hand causes “structural isomerism”, or otherwise said: structural damage to the food molecules.

The evidence that microwaves are harmful comes from a study, conducted by Swiss chemist Hans Hertel I, which included eight participants who have stayed at a hotel resort for eight weeks and have consumed raw food that was cooked in a conventional way. Fifteen minutes after every meal, the volunteers had their blood drawn. Supposedly, after consuming the microwaved food the results of the blood testing showed significant changes in the chemistry of the blood.

So, is microwaved food healthy?

In 1991 a patient died when the doctors give him a blood sample that was previously warmed in a microwave. That was the first death caused by the use of a microwave oven.

There are countries that are concerned for the health of their citizens, like Russia, where the microwave ovens were banned in 1976, but the ban was later lifted.

There is no doubt that the food cooked in microwave ovens is not safe and affects our health, so do yourself a favor and find time to cook your meal without using a microwave.
