(NewsTarget) With modern society being so rushed, there is often little to no time at the end of the day to prepare nutritious meals for our families. Because of their super fast cooking times, microwaves have taken the world by storm. They may be cheap to purchase, but your health will pay the biggest price of all if you use this appliance to prepare or even heat meals. Because of the process used to heat and cook food in microwaves, they have been linked to cancer, as well as other nutrient deficiencies in society today.

The process of causing water molecules in the food to resonate at extremely high frequencies and to convert to steam actually causes the chemical structure of the food to change. This causes food to lose almost 100% of its nutritional value, and it alters the taste completely.

Using a microwave to warm baby formula or breast milk is also a bad idea because it destroys almost all of the natural nutrients and goodness found in breast milk, and it also converts trans-amino acids to biologically inactive (synthetic) cis-isomers. It destroys antibodies and bacteria-digesting enzymes that naturally occur in breast milk. An amino acid known as L-proline converts to d-isomer, which is both neuro- and nephrotoxic (causes nervous system and kidney damage).

Our bodies cannot break down the foreign by-products which are created when food is microwaved. Nutrients and vitamins in the food are either severely altered or even destroyed completely, rendering the food void of any nutritional value. Food prepared in microwaves has also been known to cause intestinal and stomach tumours. Cancerous cells in the blood have also shown a remarkable increase in those who consume microwaved food on a regular basis. Even thawing foods out in a microwave is dangerous, as it leads to the formation of carcinogenic substances in the food.

Chemical products from plastic, Styrofoam and even paper food containers are known to leech into food when they are microwaved in these containers. BPA is one of the main culprits, which causes hormonal imbalances, lowered sperm count in men and various forms of cancer.

Other side effects of consuming foods prepared in a microwave include memory loss, emotional instability, long-term brain damage, a severely weakened immune system, altered male and female hormone production and decreased levels of intelligence.

A recent study has also shown that microwave frequency radiation affects the heart, causing symptoms such as chest pains and irregular heartbeat rhythms.

Those regularly using microwaves have been known to experience a host of symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vision problems, frequent urination and extreme thirst, night sweats, insomnia, appetite loss and other sleep disturbances. Increased cholesterol levels, decreased haemoglobin levels and a decrease in both red and white blood cell levels have also been reported.
