Crazy Pseudoscience In The Workplace Part II (Microwaves)
http://usahitman.com/microwave-test/

This guy does a experiment in which he waters two plants (only two) one with microwaved water and the other with boiled water (allowed to come to room temp) and the microwaved one DIES!

Also from the article:

Quote:1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by ‘shorting out’ electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumours]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in UK and America .

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

Put on your wadders cause we are knee deep in bullshit over here.

There have been scare stories about microwave ovens since they first came out.

In Britain during the '70s people went out an bought Geiger counters to test the machines for radiation leakage.

The only legitimate concern about microwaving food might be the container you heat the food in. Plastic containers that are not microwave safe should probably be avoided, but there isn't yet conclusive evidence what the harm might be. Here's a sober, fact-based writeup that tamps down some of the hysteria and honestly discusses where more investigation may be warranted:

I remember reading about a Darwin Award winner, a telephone company night watchman who tried to keep warm on one Christmas Eve night in Canada by sitting in front of a telephone relay microwave dish. According to the story he fell asleep in the strongest beam, in a plastic lawn chair drinking beer and was cooked. Cooked until dead.

It was in, I think, the 1999 Darwin Award book. Turns out it was an old tale told with several variations from different parts of Canada and the US and not true at all.

This thread reminded of that Darwin Award microwave story. Makes me wonder how many of those stories are false in that book.

He forgot to note that you should never microwave homeopathic preparations because it destroys the water's memory. Yes

When microwaves were first sold in Australia, I had a friend who wouldn't eat pasties (vegetables and possibly meat cooked inside dough). She thought the microwaves would flow out of the pasty into her mouth.

Otherwise, she was very intelligent.

I don't understand microwaves and Radiation theory is just a theory.

Therefore God created them

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
