By Lindsay Sibson
You’ve done it.
I’ve done it.
And I’m willing to bet that 99% of the people you know have too.
What I am talking about is using a microwave to heat food.
It’s amazing how with just a few pushes of a button, you can create a quickly-made hot meal. I get the allure of the ease of using a microwave – it’s simple and fast!
But, have you ever wondered HOW a microwave works? What does it do to your food? How can it get hot so fast?
First, check out this video and see exactly HOW a microwave works.
Many studies have been conducted, proving the dangers of using a microwave to heat your food.
Now let’s take a look at the 5 troubling reasons why you should STOP using microwaves… starting NOW.
1. Microwaves ZAP Nutrients
- The process of heating up food in a microwave changes the food’s molecular structure and decreases nutrient content.
- Even if you start with a fresh, nutritious and healthy meal, once the food is microwaved, it turns into substances your body has difficulty processing.
2. Microwaves Destroy Breast Milk And Vitamin B-12
- Heating up breast milk in the microwave can lead to an increase of growth in harmful bacteria.
- When you microwave foods like beef, pork, or milk, it leads to a 30-40 percent decrease in vitamin B-12. This significant loss of B-12 reduces the promotion of nerve, blood cell and DNA health in your body.
3. Microwaves Create Carcinogens
- Plastic containers used to heat up food often contain harmful chemicals and toxins. Heat releases these chemicals, such as BPA, benzene, toluene and polyethylene, into your food. Upon eating your microwaved food, you ingest these dangerous toxins!
4. Microwaves Can Change The Makeup Of Your Blood
- Your white blood cell levels and cholesterol increase when consuming microwaved food.
5. Microwaves Can Affect Your Heart And Health
- Radiation is emitted by a microwave when in use and can immediately and substantially affect your heart rate and heart rate variability.
- People exposed to a high level of microwave radiation have reported experiencing the following symptoms:
- Insomnia, sleep disturbances, night sweats
- Weakened immune system
- Impaired cognition
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Eye and vision problems
- Appetite loss
- Extreme thirst
- Frequent urination
These 5 reasons ALONE are enough to scare you away from using a microwave! Studies show CLEAR evidence that microwaving food is extremely dangerous to your health.
