Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!
NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.
SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.
the structure or energy of the water
what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice
the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about
Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:
Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.
it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it
…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.
(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)
Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.
I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.
This movement causes friction
That’s not what friction is.
It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
Let’s take these one at a time.
- Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
- Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
- Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)
Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.
things that are not found in nature
What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.
Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.
PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.
LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.
This was incredibly amusing to read. Thank you so much for sciencing.
I FUCKING HATE HOW SCIENCE ILLITERATE SO MANY PEOPLE ON THIS SITE ARE.

self diagnosing is so hard because everytime you’re like “maybe I am mentally ill” theres also a big part of you going “nah you’re probably just a naturally lazy/nasty/disgusting/useless person trying to find an excuse for your behavior” because of the institutionalized ableism that runs through everything
SELF DIAGNOSING IS SO HARD BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT A FUCKING PSYCHIATRIST

still the fucking bullshit that Beethoven was black????
i don’t know what kind of idea americans have of “white peopl” or whatever, but the so-called “proof” that are brought to demonstrate that beethoven was black just MAKE NO SENSE. THEY DON’TDEMONSTRATE AT ALL THAT HE WAS BLACK, just that he might have had darker complexion and a flat nose. The “proof” even say they called him something like “the Spanish”, and you know what? Southern Europeans do INDEED IDENTIFY AS WHITE EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE DARKER COMPLEXION.
Nobody says he was black because HE WAS NOT AND STILL IS NOT CONSIDERED “BLACK” OR “POC” OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT.
look at this man (actor Enrico Lo Verso btw if you want to know):
By American standards he’s considered “POC” isn’t he?
WELL, HE IS NOT A POC. HE’S JUST AN ITALIAN WITH DARKER SKIN.
NO ONE IN ITALY OR EUROPE WOULD CONSIDER HIM BLACK.
Because Europe has many many faults, but knows better than divide population in “white” and “pocs” because IT MAKES NO SENSE.
WHY ARE YOU AMERICANS TRYING THIS HISTORICAL REVISIONISM THAT MAKES NO SENSE?
Why instead of going “that famous person was black!!1one”, don’t you try to look into the many things black people contributed to Europe? Or you think that it is not enough?
What good does it do trying to raise the “poc number” tumblr is so fond of by spreading lies and misinformation?
Beethoven is never described as “black” simply becuase he is not considered “black”, and all the “proof” that he was, only demonstrate that he had some ancestor of maybe Southern European Origin.
He would be “PoC” only by USA standards.
(Also because, you know, racism in Europe doesn’t really work like in USA.
Like, you know who would probably be more likely to be discriminated against in Italy between Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie? SEBASTIAN, because he’s Romanian, while Mackie is American. And there you have it)
No the thing that makes me laugh most about the whole ‘BEETHOVEN WAS BLACK OMG THIS IS ALL WHITE SUPREMACY CONSPIRACY’ issue and the fact that apparently people still can’t let it go is that they don’t realize that it’s an incredibly fucking racist thing in itself you know? I mean, I never once saw some post with a considerable number or notes actually praising cultural accomplishments made by non-white people in Europe or wherever before the 20th century (and I mean people who wouldn’t be considered white here) (I mean did I ever see a post about Dumas being a successful novelist even if he faced a lot of crap for being half black for one? Naaaah), but all these ridiculous posts that are like THIS PERSON WHO ACCOMPLISHED ALL THESE THINGS WASN’T REALLY WHITE THEY WERE *POC*!!! have thousands of notes. As if in order to talk about diverse accomplishments you have to prove that white people never did anything worthwhile but instead if they did they totally must have been black. Which is completely dumb because what, non-white people can’t have accomplishments that aren’t somehow reclaimed from the horrid white people, when talking about a continent which is… 95% ethnically white….? I mean, isn’t that insulting that you can’t go look at actual examples of diverse contributions to European culture instead of just deciding that everyone not blonde with blue eyes isn’t white?
Like, omg white people totally stole the ninth symphony from the non-whites!!!!!!, how dumb/condescending is that? Instead of turning european culture into non-white culture when it makes no sense maybe study some, grab some books at the library and read non-european literature and read also something about actual mixed race writers/composer/people who contributed to European cultural heritage while actually being considered not-white.
I don’t wanna say let’s talk about how arabian philosophy was important in western thought because I realize no one gives a shit but tbh they’d be a lot better off studying Averroes rather than coming up with Beethoven conspiracy theories
Then again people bought that Mozart was black because of a photoshopped advert from a belgian radio station and cried that it was white supremacy so what do you even expect…? Aaaah dumb revisionism, how I hate thee.
(also that Mackie vs Sebstan comparison these days would work like a charm. I’m pretty sure we’re in the wave where romanians get targeted a lot more than black people regardless of where the latter come from and if they’re American? Deeeeefinitely they’d have it a lot better. But then again try and explain people that instutional racism works differently everywhere and the world is not america…)
bolded by me because super beauriful and super on point.
but why talking about lo verso when we have the ultimate example? the one and only, carlo conti!
