Two scientists, during World War II, invented the magnetron, a tube that produced microwaves. Combining the magnetrons within Britain’s radar system, the microwaves were able to locate Nazi warplanes on their mission to bomb the British Isles.
Several years later, Percy LeBaron Spencer of the Raytheon Company, by accident discovered that microwaves also cook food. Namely, he found that radar waves had melted a candy bar in his pocket.
The first microwave oven to go on the market was as large and heavy as a refrigerator and was called the Radar Range. However, a great number of studies show that microwave ovens are harmful to our health.
- Microwaves heat and cook out the food in the following way: alternating currents force atoms to reverse their polarity, which creates friction and vibrates the water inside of the food molecules, causing the food to heat up.
- Inside of any microwave there is 2.45 billion hertz which is okay, until the seal in your microwave door has a leak from aging. All it takes is 10 hertz to harm the body and you will not be aware until the damage is done.
How does a microwave oven harm our bodies
– Causes birth defects
– Cataracts- due to our eyes lack of blood vessels to dissipate the cellular stress and heat from the microwave
– Weakened immune system
– Lowered resistance to viral and bacterial infections
– More serious illnesses
What does the microwave oven do to our food
– Breaks chemical and molecular bonds
– Swiss scientist, Hans Hertel’s study suggests microwaving food degrades and depletes food of its nutrients
– The radiation from the microwave destroys and deforms the molecules in the food, creating dangerous radioactive compounds
– In 1992, a study from the Search for Health, researched the effects of participants that consumed microwaved vegetables
– Rapidly increasing cholesterol levels
– Decrease in hemoglobin causing an anemic-like conditions
– Decrease in white blood cells
– Increase in leukocyte (indicating poisoning and cell damage)
– Microwaved breast milk looses 96% of its antibodies
– Microwaved Infant formulas’ structure is altered, changing the components in amino acids, creating immunological abnormalities
It is very important to know that even though the microwave is well sealed, you will still be exposed to detrimental levels of electromagnetic fields that can penetrate your body and lead to many serious health problems.
Taking into consideration the loss of nutrients they cause and the dangerous effect they have on your overall health, their use is undoubtedly not worth the while!
