Such harmless benign looking little appliances, and so handy for our insanely sped up nowadays world. I’ve been laughed at for suggesting microwaves are harmful … that Russia banned them at one stage … thankfully the science is emerging. I first learned of the health risks from a nurse who was told in training (UK) not to heat baby formula in a microwave as it kills certain vitamins. From that I smelled a rat as the saying goes. Turns out a man who researched them by testing for vitamin content in food cooked in a microwave & food not, that definitely they do kill your nutrients. Needless to say his research was quickly debunked & hidden a long way under the proverbial carpet. Enough to put me off using one anyway. Err on the side of safety surely. I know a few folk who don’t use these anyway & I haven’t owned one myself for a few years now. As always you need to find this information out for yourself. Mainstream won’t tell you any time soon. It means fewer sales, less profits and so on. Because as you’ve possibly noted lately, for the last decade or more, that profits are more important than you or your health.
(Natural News) Many health conscious consumers rarely, if ever, microwave their food anymore, but when they do, they probably do not realize that they’re not just destroying the nutritional value of the food, but the “nuker” is negatively impacting their hearts.
The typical microwave frequency radiation coming from “nukers” seen in the average American kitchen is more than enough to screw with your heart rate and your heart rate variability. In fact, just 2.4 GHz, the average frequency produced by microwave ovens (and WiFi routers, by the way) can cause immediate and drastic changes to the human heart.
According to Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University, people exposed to radiation for just three minutes at 2.4-GHz can experience severe reactions in heart rate changes and altered heart rate variations, indicating an alarm response to stress, also called electrohypersensitivity (EHS) or rapid aging syndrome. This has been studied for decades. The response includes heart palpitations, clumping of red blood cells and fluctuations of the parasympathetic nervous system typical of a “fight-or-flight” response.
Dr. Havas also revealed that microwave ovens can lead to blood sugar spikes connected with diabetes. This usually happens when people stand within three feet of the oven while it’s running, like when anxious eaters park themselves directly in front of the microwave oven while waiting for those last few seconds to finish “nuking” their food or beverage.
Unequivocal evidence that microwave frequency radiation affects human heart
For years, bogus research and microwave oven fanatics have claimed that microwave ovens do not produce any immediate biological effects because the ordinary household level is far below federal guidelines. Most of those studies were conducted prior to the new millennium, but now environmental radiation is coming at us from multiple sources, including electromagnetic devices, laptops, WiFi and mobile phones.
