Using A Microwave Oven Can Be Risky

The Argument

Some scientists have claimed that using a microwave oven is relatively safe, because they are tested to make sure that they are working without any flaws (You and I intuitively know that manmade items are not 100% flawless and that there are always some sort of surprise waiting to happen; they are usually the unpleasant kind).

The Manner In Which Microwaves Work

Microwaves, to put it simply are: very short waves of electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of light.

The microwave oven uses alternating current; this is known to reverse polarity at a high rate; this by the way, causes the water molecules to vibrate and heat up.

Some Reasons Why Microwave Ovens Are Detrimental To Our Health

The seals of the doors of some microwave ovens are known to leak with age; once this happens, the person using the microwave oven can be harmed, because an average of 2.45 billion hertz is generated within the microwave oven. A human being can be severely harmed when 10 hertz and more are generated.

Some Harmful Effects Caused By Microwave Ovens

•A person’s immune system is weakened

•Cancer

•Birth defects

•Impaired cognition

•Vision and eye problems

The Question That We Should All Ask Ourselves 

Since a microwave oven can cause someone to become ill, why should it be used within the household?

The Conclusion

Many people are putting their health at risk by using a microwave oven. Mother Nature never intended human beings to prepare their food in such a manner. If you consider your health to be precious, I would advise discontinuing the usage of the microwave oven; that is provided that you own one.

  1. Thanks for the heads up. I have noticed that food does not taste as good when cooked in them and was suspicious about nutrition but did not think the appliance was harmful.

  2. A great post – my mommy is always discouraging microwave oven and she is more likely to use stoves for even heating purposes!! I admire her for the efforts for our good health!! Thank you for the addiitional information!
    Warm regards,
    -Naima.

  3. I own a microwave, and have always been wary of them. You made a good post highlighting the hidden dangers of using microwaves.

  4. I must confess I use the one I have at home sparingly and with slight trepidation.

  5. This reminds AnElephant of his former life in IT, where three basic rules were:
    Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
    Anything that cannot go wrong will also go wrong.
    When something goes wrong it will always be at the point of maximum disruption.
    Thanks for the visit and the ‘like’, Renard.
    Off to nuke a couple of muffins for supper now!

  6. It was determined long ago that the frequency 2450mhz is best for heating food as the food best absorbs the energy at this frequency. Any RF energy that may escape the confines of the casing is of no consequence. I have been licensed in ham radio for decades and am well aware of the properties of radio waves at different frequencies. Alarmist groups seem to constantly attempt to put fear and paranoia in the hearts of the public, as they have done with the cell phone usage and brain cancer. It’s rubbish. Sorry, don’t mean to be rude.

  7. I gave up my microwave last June and haven’t missed it a bit. Not to mention the extra counter space I now have- bonus! I found this to be an informative post. Even if there is no health benefit in getting rid of it (which I personally am convinced there is), I now have one less item sucking electricity from the grid. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Im told if you study the structure of the food cooked this way its nutrition value gets zapped.. … I cant remember where I read that.. but I can believe that to be the case.. as its altering the whole structure of the food as the waves pass through it.. Maybe you know more?
