Hazards of Microwave Cooking

I've had a few mails from members, asking me to start microwave baking.. I've answered them.. and would like to bring the topic up here as well - I am against microwaves - completely and totally.

Its not just a fad - it is scientific fact - type it on google and check the results. I'll make a note for you so you can read it..

For now - just consider - the rays that heat the food and leave the vessel cold.. meat that needs an hour in the pot but is ready in a quarter of the time in a microwave.. a cake that needs 25 to 30 minutes in an oven.. but 5 in a microwave.. What do you think is the force that is making it so fast? And what do you think its doing to your bodies?

Everytime I see mothers heating their children's milk in a microwave.. I shudder.. I am aghast at the courage of these mothers.. who have gone though vigourous hours of childbirth for their child.. and yet are so ease-loving in the case of their nutrition..
My dear sisters - dont feed poison to your families.. who trust you and your expertise in the kitchen. Do justice to your role as the woman, as the mother.. and make an effort..
Ditch the microwave.. Please!

What you need to understand is that there will always be people who will tell you, its not true.. they are either those who themselves are SO misinformed that they simply cannot see the obvious, or, they are sadly not interested. If nothing in these arguments and texts and information convinces you - then follow this Hadith:

On the authority of Abu Muhammad al-Hasan bin Ali bin Abi Taib, the grandson of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ëalayhi wasallam, and who is dearest to him, radiyallahu ëanhuma, who said: I committed to memory from the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ëalayhi wasallam, (the following words):

Leave that about which you are in doubt for that about which you are in no doubt.
[Al-Tirmidhi and al-Nasaíi related it, and al-Tirmidhi said: It is a good and genuine Hadith]

I'm going to copy paste excerpts from the things I have read with their link reference. I think it has been said wonderfully so I dont need to change it.. please do yourself and your family - your innocent children! the favour and read this..

Microwaves unsafe for baby's milk
Dr. Lita Lee of Hawaii reported in the December 9, 1989 Lancet:
"Microwaving baby formulas converted certain trans-amino acids into their synthetic cis-isomers. Synthetic isomers, whether cis-amino acids or trans-fatty acids, are not biologically active. Further, one of the amino acids, L-proline, was converted to its d-isomer, which is known to be neurotoxic (poisonous to the nervous system) and nephrotoxic (poisonous to the kidneys). It's bad enough that many babies are not nursed, but now they are given fake milk (baby formula) made even more toxic via microwaving."

Microwaved blood kills patient
In 1991, there was a lawsuit in Oklahoma concerning the hospital use of a microwave oven to warm blood needed in a transfusion. The case involved a hip surgery patient, Norma Levitt, who died from a simple blood transfusion. It seems the nurse had warmed the blood in a microwave oven.

It's very obvious that this form of microwave radiation "heating" does something to the substances it heats. It's also becoming quite apparent that people who process food in a microwave oven are also ingesting these "unknowns".
Because the body is electrochemical in nature, any force that disrupts or changes human electrochemical events will affect the physiology of the body.

While microwaves reheat food, they also generate a host of known carcinogens. The ovens produce micro wavelength radiation at a rate of up to 2.45 GHz. This microwave radiation interacts with the molecules in food. The waves agitate the molecules to produce friction, which in turn heats the food. With this friction and heat comes the production of free radicals, or cells that can grow and spread into carcinogens.

Microwaving alters food chemistry which can lead to malfunctions in the lymphatic system and degeneration of the body’s ability to protect itself against cancerous growths.
Microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, and a gradual breakdown of the digestive and excretive systems in a statistically high percentage of people.

My dear sisters - you will always find people who will discourage you - but the fact remains that YOUR life is YOUR responsibility. Just think - if this IS true and one day you find out for 100% sure.. how will you ever face yourself or forgive yourself?

With all my love and prayers!
