Are microwaves a benign bastion of convenience or a sinister contributor to biological and nutritional damage? That depends where you attain your health information from. Many believe microwaves are an ingenious time-saving device and wonder how anyone ever lived without them. Others are aware their food doesn’t quite taste the same after microwave use, but unapologetically swear by them just to help them get through the day a little bit faster. However, a growing percentage are now heeding the advice of holistic health experts advising them of the dangers. Regardless of where you stand, humans are the only animals on the planet who destroy the nutritional value of their food before eating it, and the use of microwaves is no exception.

If you’re a regular reader of any type of website that thrives to educate on natural and toxic-free living, then you probably disposed of your microwave long ago. If you still use a microwave and just stumbled on this information, pay close attention as all the information on this page will eventually lead you to throw out your nuker and get back to old fashioned heating methods which are far more effective for your long-term health.

Microwaves use super-fast particles to literally radiate the contents of water inside food and bring it to boil. Not only has microwave use been linked to causing infertility in men, but it also denatures many of the essential proteins in the food making them virtually indigestible.

Most animals will only consume food in its natural, unprocessed state, but humans actually go out of their way to render food nutritionally worthless before eating it. Think about all the prepackaged and processed foods we purchase and consume annually. It’s no wonder the state of our health is in dire straits.

Microwaves are a source of electromagnetic energy (a form of nonionizing form of radiation) electronically generated. When penetrating the aliments, they trigger an inner rotation of the water molecules inside the food. This rotation triggers a friction between the molecules and the result is a rapid growth in temperature.

Microwave ovens work physically, biochemically and physiologically, producing ions and various free radicals, which destroy viruses and bacteria, but not toxins and microtoxins. The experts have concluded that food cooked in microwaves loses between 60% and 90% of its vital energy and, at the same time, the structural disintegration processes accelerates. Also, the nutrient substances are altered, leading to digestive diseases. These microwaves can increase both the number of cancerous cells in blood and the number of stomach and intestinal cancerous cells.

Microwaves leaking radiation is a serious issue. Serious enough for the FDA to set legal limits on the leakage permitted by every microwave manufacturer. However, the only way to completely eliminate the radiation dangers associated with microwaves is not to use one. Microwave radiation has been known to cause cataracts, birth defects, cancer and other serious illnesses.

Because of these causes  the microwave ovens were banned in the Soviet Union in 1976. Soviet scientists found that  the microwave exposure decreases the ability of some vitamins to by absorbed by the human body, dramatically accelerates the structural disintegration of all foods and reduces the metabolic stress of the alkaloids, glycosides and galactoses.

In 1991, the Swiss Doctor Hans Ulrich Hertel made a study that demonstrated that cooking or heating food  presents much greater risks for health than the traditionally cooked food. He found that people who ate microwave prepared food recorded losses in the hemoglobines and lymphoites.

In 2003, a Spanish governmental study elaborated in Murcia demonstrated that the vegetables and fruits cooked in a microwave lost a percentage of 97% of the substances that contribute to reducing the incidence of coronary heart diseases.

In Dr. Lita Lee’s book, Health Effects of Microwave Radiation — Microwave Ovens, and in the March and September 1991 issues of Earthletter, she stated that every microwave oven leaks electro-magnetic radiation, harms food, and converts substances cooked in it to dangerous organ-toxic and carcinogenic products.

In Comparative Study of Food Prepared Conventionally and in the Microwave Oven, published by Raum & Zelt in 1992, at 3(2): 43, it states:

“Artificially produced microwaves, including those in ovens, are produced from alternating current and force a billion or more polarity reversals per second in every food molecule they hit. Production of unnatural molecules is inevitable. Naturally occurring amino acids have been observed to undergo isomeric changes (changes in shape morphing) as well as transformation into toxic forms, under the impact of microwaves produced in ovens.”

There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent, destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts. Microwaves quickly destroy the delicate molecules of vitamins and phytonutrients (plant medicines) naturally found in foods. One study showed that microwaving vegetables destroys up to 97% of the nutritional content (vitamins and other plant-based nutrients that prevent disease, boost immune function and enhance health).

Dr. Hertel was the first scientist to conceive and carry out a quality clinical study on the effects microwaved nutrients have on the blood and physiology of the human body. His small but well controlled study showed the degenerative force produced in microwave ovens and the food processed in them. The scientific conclusion showed that microwave cooking changed the nutrients in the food; and, changes took place in the participants’ blood that could cause deterioration in the human system. Hertel’s scientific study was done along with Dr. Bernard H. Blanc of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University Institute for Biochemistry.

Of all the natural substances — which are polar — the oxygen of water molecules reacts most sensitively. This is how microwave cooking heat is generated — friction from this violence in water molecules. Structures of molecules are torn apart, molecules are forcefully deformed, called structural isomerism, and thus become impaired in quality. This is contrary to conventional heating of food where heat transfers convectionally from without to within. Cooking by microwaves begins within the cells and molecules where water is present and where the energy is transformed into frictional heat.

The following is a summary of the Russian investigations published by the Atlantis Raising Educational Center in Portland, Oregon:

– Microwaving prepared meats sufficiently to insure sanitary ingestion caused formation of d-Nitrosodienthanolamines, a well-known carcinogen.

– Microwaving milk and cereal grains converted some of their amino acids into carcinogens.

– Thawing frozen fruits converted their glucoside and galactoside containing fractions into carcinogenic substances.

– Extremely short exposure of raw, cooked or frozen vegetables converted their plant alkaloids into carcinogens.

– Carcinogenic free radicals were formed in microwaved plants, especially root vegetables.

Russian researchers also reported a marked acceleration of structural degradation leading to a decreased food value of 60 to 90% in all foods tested. Among the changes observed were:

– Deceased bio-availability of vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics factors in all food tested.

– Various kinds of damaged to many plant substances, such as alkaloids, glucosides, galactosides and nitrilosides.

According to Dr. Lee, changes are observed in the blood chemistries and the rates of certain diseases among consumers of microwaved foods. The symptoms above can easily be caused by the observations shown below. The following is a sample of these changes:

a.. Lymphatic disorders were observed, leading to decreased ability to prevent certain types of cancers.
b.. An increased rate of cancer cell formation was observed in the blood.
c.. Increased rates of stomach and intestinal cancers were observed.
d.. Higher rates of digestive disorders and a gradual breakdown of the systems of elimination were observed.

Decrease in Food Value

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

Biological Effects of Exposure

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general bio-logical welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

Take a look around you at every person that still uses a microwave. The largest majority are unhealthy and overweight. The more you use the microwave, the worse your nutritional state gets, and the more likely you are to be diagnosed with various diseases and put on pharmaceuticals which, of course, will create other health problems that lead to a grand spiraling nosedive of health.

How Do You Heat Your Food The Healthy Way

This is kind of a misnomer because there is truthfully, with perhaps the exception of dehydration, no way to heat food and maintain its structural and nutritional value. However, gently heating food in a cast iron pan over the stove may be the healthiest alternative to nuking it. This is the old fashioned way and it never failed our ancestors.

Toss that microwave and strive to consume at least half of your diet from raw foods, that is a huge step in the right direction to maintain their nutritional value. My mother always used to tell me that if food comes from a package, or has to be heated to be eaten, there’s a good a chance it’s low in nutrition. She was right for the most part, so keep that in mind when venturing the aisles at the grocery.

    Any idiot with a half a right-brain cell knows from “common sense” that microwaved food is altered in an unnatural way, regardless of the details. People on this website *ordinarily* seem to disagree about details and philosophy (if they do disagree), not so much obvious physical stuff.

    There are too many fakes here, plastic-toy people. Where did they come from? The microwave factory? People hate to give up their little toy machines, don’t they? They have every excuse in the world to hang on to their precious various radiation toys and they get so defensive!

  • Michael

    The Soviet Union never banned microwave ovens. That is a myth.

    • Lazareth

      That’s right. It is a myth and I challenge anyone to find the official records to prove it. I have two friends living in Moscow and they both use a microwave purchased at a store in Moscow.

      With the obviously flawed and partially untruthful statements within this article, with almost virtually no supporting documentation / source information aside from quoting “the experts”, I wouldn’t take this article too seriously.

  • Natty

    what a load of rubbish. All cooking does this to food, all nutrients are destroyed by heat. You might as well say heat causes cancer than blame it on the microwave oven. It is well known that over-cooking food is bad for you.
    Microwaves are totally natural and exist everywhere.

    Absolute garbage.
    The “Biological Effects of Exposure” are total psuedo-scientific mumbo jumbo.

    • Rachel

      I see “pseudo scientific” being said a lot lately. by shills.

  • christophe

    Hmm. I used to use my microwave every day. The McCain meals were so easy to do. It was only when I moved from the northwest of Western Australia down south and was packing that I noticed the amount of “tv” dinners I had in the freezer. I had heard of an experiment where school kids used microwaved water on plants and they died (the plants not the kids!). I dont know if this is true cause I ended up throwing out my microwave oven and that was 6 years ago. I actually dont miss it at all. It makes sense though that microwaved food would end up being toxic. Maybe do some kinsiology or even a pendulum work to see if its detrimental to your health.

  • mohman777

    What a brilliant scientific report this is, that everyone should be very grateful for, as I know I am, yet strangely, or not so strangely perhaps, there are some people writing here trying to undermine the report whilst trying to appear to be genuine.

    Quite frankly, even if someone is alive after using a microwave, there is no good reason to then cast doubt on the scientific truth of the whole report, as we all know that in extremely rare and exceptional cases, some individuals do resist cancer.

    The real fact remains however, that the vast majority of those using microwaves are not Zen masters or whatever who can transform microwaves into 528 Hz so-called love frequency.

    Airline food tastes bad because food eaten onboard flights is eaten in a dry, pressurised cabin with engine noise:


    Chemtrails are re-engineering humans and affect smell and taste:


    The Russians in the 1970’s banned microwaved when they learned of their toxic effects. Microwave ovens are toxic to use and all leak radiation at different frequencies to cell phones.


    The reality about the global awakening, why there is so much evil in this world, what it all means and what is being done about it can be found in the writings of Dr J Chiappalone.


  • brian

    Crazy thing is how many people toss their microwave and have 2 cell phones, 4 cordless phones, wi-fi, smart meters and preach on about microwaving their food being bad? These are the people who ‘only eat organic’ then DIRECTLY microwave radiate their entire bodies, brains and all organs in it without even a blink, hour and hours a day. Or even better, complain about GMO’s killing bees (which they are) then pay as much as possible to get a cell tower covering every square inch of the earth to kill bees…


  • Italics Mine

    The last time I was on an airplane, I noticed that the food items I brought on board didn’t taste quite right after they went through the scanning process.

  • American Patriot

    Hold a radiation detector anywhere around a running micro wave oven and you will find NO radiation. Hold the same detector by your cell phone or electric meter and the RED light comes on as soon as you get close to them.

    • Rachel

      do you plan on eating what your cell phone cooks?

      • Lazareth

        Based upon Rachel’s reply, I’d say her cell phone is already cooking her brain.

        • Rachel

          I don’t use cell phones at all.

  • Doreen Miller

    Threw my microwave out years ago. Don’t miss it one iota. My food tastes so much better as well. I just love cast iron pans – use them all the time.

    The supposed technical explanation in this silly article is the absolute WORST jumble of PURE bull that I’ve ever seen in all my many decades on this planet, and I say that as an experienced electronic engineering type (decades of experience). Before you post gibberish like this you should trying LEARNING at least a LITTLE bit about the subject your going to rant about. Any junior electronic tech could spot what a load of pure bull this is. Now, I’m off to get sick…………

  • xbjllb

    Lifelong nonsmokers who grew up in nonsmoking households but used microwaves daily DON’T GET CANCER. PERIOD. Smoking and indoor smoke causes cancer. Worry more about staying in the house when self-cleaning an oven (it KILLS birds.) Or stupidly running a wood burning fireplace at all. Ditto candles.

    • Jay

      Cheers Doc! Keep those studies coming 🙂

  • Creigh

    I read this article.. & I don’t believe this for me. I believe in the fear it projects to the people that believe this way. I give my cells permission to absorb whatever nutrients are necessary for my well-being.. and I do not believe in cancer as something I choose to attract, or create in my body. (from a microwave or whatever source) I am in my body 24 hrs a day.. and I have a body-mind-spirit connection with myself. I will not have this dis-ease in my body or energy field. My grandmother lived 30 more years after being diagnosed with pancreatic Cancer at 60, by 4 Doctors specializing in cancer. She was told she had 4 months to live at the most… She left the area, & moved up north.. & only kept in touch with me.. most of the family, & friends thought she was a nut.. She raised me as a child from 3 to 15 yrs old, since my mom was pursuing her acting, & modeling career. After she healed herself with meditation , & releasing fears, anger, & & other stuff.. I have her diary she kept daily while going thru this process) She did it her own healing, & then grandmother became a minister with Science of Mind Church (metaphysically orientated) and was never sick a day in her life again… She transitioned 30 yrs later living with me.. & told me she was leaving that weekend, she was ready. (she took no meds or vitamins, nothing) I don’t have the fear, guilt, or self-destructive patterns of thought to bring cancer into my life… We all create our experiences, when we are awake enough to “see” how the world of advertizing is controlling thru the media, etc.. the mass-consciousness of people are so asleep & being mass-programmed. People need to awaken to their own power, & stop being robots. I feel saddened to see Angelna Jolie going thru the mascetomy’s as she did it out of fear.. if she had more self-awareness whe could have made that decision from fear. what we fear usually attracts right back to us always. (LOA) and whatever we believe we attract… I choose to trust my higher self/god-self to guide me from within, rather than listen to someone from outside of me. These are just my beliefs, & I’m writing a book on my life experiences, & a movie conveying a big wake up call for the race-consciousness to become aware, & start taking responsibility for their own creations. I prefer to listen within to myself.. who would know me better ? I am in my body, no one is in here with me, unless I invite their thoughts (energy) in.. And I do not get any neg feedback from my inner being that this microwave is dangerous in any way… unless I choose to feed into this suggestion, & make it then real for me…
    My mother is alive, & is in xlnt health, & has used a microwave for 20 yrs+ and just turned 98 yrs.. perfect hearing 20/20 vision no arthritis, good bones, & gd memory, etc… (some say good genes.. she has always been a positive person, & has always a cheerful outlook) namaste… lets celebrate an awakening world 2013.. filled with lots of joy, peace, & love, AND SELF-AWARENESS 🙂 Creigh

      How about those rotten cfl bulbs, I bet you like those too.

      Eating microwaved foods has already impaired your logical functions !.

    • Anonymous

      I see the microwave works well at your place. How long DID you stick your head in it?

    • Lazareth

      Very well said, Creigh… and very correct. I don’t dispute the factual and potential science of this article, but it stands to reason that our brains can add to any negative effect upon the body. My grandfather is 103 and my grandmother is 96… both having used the microwave since its inception. I wonder how they were able to escape without all of these effects. Like Creigh’s grandmother, my family is pretty optimistic and live long lives. We don’t live in fear or place the power of suggestion in our minds that would surely manifest itself to our getting sick. We also don’t eat processed foods and use the microwave from time to time to warm things or even cook with.
