Think twice before using a microwave oven

Have you ever asked this question to yourself that a food which is cooked by microwave oven is healthier for our health or not? Not at all, a food which is cooked through microwave ovens is highly hazardous to human health. It gives off radiations which are similar to radio waves these waves are turned out by magnetron. Magnetrons turn out EMF with a microwave frequency about 2,450 megahertz. These waves attack the natural polarity of water molecules causing fraction that in turn creates thermal energy.

Millions of households use microwave ovens for cooking. But some people worry that they may pose a risk. According to healthcare experts the food that is cooked in microwaves oven loses its important nutritional value about 60 to 90 per cent. Which leads to increase the risk carcinogenic cells in blood, cataract, birth defect, as well as causes infertility in men and several other horrific diseases in human.

Microwaves are produced inside the oven by an electron tube called a magnetron. The microwaves are reflected within the metal interior of the oven where they are absorbed by food. Microwaves cause water molecules in food to vibrate, producing heat that cooks the food. That’s why foods that are high in water content, like fresh vegetables, can be cooked more quickly than other foods.

Microwave cooking can be more energy efficient than conventional cooking because foods cook faster and the energy heats only the food, not the whole oven compartment. Microwave cooking does not reduce the nutritional value of foods any more than conventional cooking. In fact, foods cooked in a microwave oven may keep more of their vitamins and minerals, because microwave ovens can cook more quickly and without adding water.

Sicknesses which are caused by microwaves are. Insomnia (sleeplessness), headache and dizziness, nausea, cataract, frequent urination, cardiac diseases, infertility in men, cancer and weakened immune system. The best way to save the nutritional value of food and make ourselves healthy we must use traditional methods of cooking which have been used by our ancestors.
