WHY COOKING WITH A MICROWAVE DESTROYS CANCER-FIGHTING NUTRIENTS IN FOOD AND PROMOTES NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES

Microwave-Oven-Danger-Sign 2

Microwaves absolutely decimate the nutritional value of your food, destroying the very vitamins and phytonutrients that prevent disease and support good health. Previous studies have shown that as much as 98% of the cancer-fighting nutrients in broccoli, for example, are destroyed by microwaving.

To understand why, you have to understand the nature of vitamins and phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients). These are very delicate molecules which are fragile. They are easily destroyed by heat, which is why raw plant foods contain more plant nutrients than cooked foods. Carotenoids, antioxidants and other molecules like DIM (in broccoli) or anthocyanins (in purple corn) are all easily destroyed by microwave energy.

Microwaves “nuke” your food at a cellular level

Microwaving is the worst way to cook foods because microwaves excite the water molecules inside whatever you’re cooking, causing heat to be formed from the inside out. This results in a cell-by-cell “nuking” of the food (such as broccoli, carrots, etc.), causing the near-total molecular decomposition of the vitamins and phytonutrients that promote the disease fighting properties.

Microwaved food is not merely “dead” food at every level; it is food that has been molecularly deconstructed, leaving nothing but empty calories, fiber and minerals. Virtually the entire vitamin and phytonutrient content has been destroyed.

Anybody who says microwaving food is a healthy way to cook is ignorant of nutrition and cooking methods. While steaming vegetables is, indeed, a good method for some veggies to help make certain nutrients more bio-available, microwaving destroys veggies from the inside out at a cellular level.

Don’t be fooled by appearances

What’s really deceptive about microwave cooking is that the food still appears to be basically the same, but at the cellular level, it’s like a nuclear war has taken place. The actual molecular structure has been decimated. If you could see microwaved foods with a powerful microscope, you’d never eat them again because you would recognize just what a nutritional wasteland they really are.

If you want to eat in a healthy way, make sure a significant part of your diet is raw plants. It’s okay to eat some steamed, stir-fried or even grilled veggies, but when grilling foods, avoid burning them because all burned parts contain toxic, cancer-causing chemicals that promote colon cancer.

Personally, I am absolutely astonished that more people don’t already know all this. I’m even having to talk with my own staff about these issues, as they don’t seem to know the full story on microwave cooking. Spread the word: Microwaves promote death because they turn nutritious, healthy food into empty, decimated calories. I gave up using a microwave well over a decade ago, and I don’t even own one.

Why You Should Get Rid of Your Microwave

Here are some reasons why you should get rid of your microwave oven: 

  • Long-term consumption of food heated or cooked in a microwave can lead to brain damage because it causes electrical impulses in the brain to “short out.”
  • The microwave reduces the nutrients, such as minerals and vitamins that are in the food. So, every time you eat something that came from the microwave, you are missing out on the important nutritional benefits that were available before the food was put into the microwave.
  • When vegetables are microwaved, the minerals are changed into free radicals which can lead to cancerous activity in your body if they are consumed.
  • Eating microwaved food can impact hormone levels in both men and women. These hormonal changes can have a compounding effect over time, and might impact many other aspects of health.
  • Microwaving food causes by-products to be present in the food, and the human body is unable to metabolize those by-products.
  • Some researchers have suggested that there is a link between eating microwaved food and the increase in colon cancer rates in the United States. Microwaved food might increase the risk of intestinal and stomach tumors.
  • Eating microwaved food can impact your blood serum levels and lymph glands, which affects your immune system functions. It is possible that microwaved foods can lead to immune system deficiencies.
  • Concentration, intelligence, memory, and emotional stability all might be negatively affected by microwaved food.

As you can see, there are a number of potential health problems that can develop when you eat food that has been heated or cooked in the microwave. Even though your food might look normal, it has been altered by radiation and it is harmful to your health.

Remember, a person who cooks a lot of their food with microwaves will inevitably have chronic nutritional deficiencies that promote cancer, diabetes, bone diseases, loss of brain function, heart disease and many other health problems. The least healthy people of any society are typically the ones who frequently the microwave oven to “nuke” their foods.
