Why cooking with a microwave destroys cancer-fighting nutrients in food and promotes nutritional deficiencies
(NaturalNews) Microwaves absolutely decimate the nutritional value of
your food, destroying the very vitamins and phytonutrients that prevent
disease and support good health. Previous studies have shown that as much as 98% of the cancer-fighting nutrients in broccoli, for example, are destroyed by microwaving.
To understand why, you have to understand the nature of vitamins and
phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients). These are very delicate
molecules which are fragile. They are easily destroyed by heat, which is
why raw plant foods contain more plant nutrients than cooked foods.
Carotenoids, antioxidants and other molecules like DIM (in broccoli) or
anthocyanins (in purple corn) are all easily destroyed by microwave
Microwaves "nuke" your food at a cellular level
Microwaving is the worst way to cook foods because microwaves excite the
water molecules inside whatever you're cooking, causing heat to be
formed from the inside out. This results in a cell-by-cell "nuking" of
the food (such as broccoli, carrots, etc.), causing the near-total
molecular decomposition of the vitamins and phytonutrients that promote
Microwaved food is not merely "dead" food at every
level, it is food that has been molecularly deconstructed, leaving
nothing but empty calories, fiber and minerals. Virtually the entire
vitamin and phytonutrient content has been destroyed.
who says microwaving food is a healthy way to cook is wildly ignorant of
nutrition and cooking methods. While steaming vegetables is, indeed, a
good method for some veggies to help make certain nutrients more
bioavailable, microwaving destroys veggies from the inside out at a
Don't be fooled by appearances
really deceptive about microwave cooking is that the food still appears
to be basically the same, but at the cellular level, it's like a nuclear
war has taken place. The actual molecular structure has been decimated.
If you could see microwaved foods with a powerful microscope, you'd
never eat them again because you would recognize just what a nutritional
wasteland they really are.
If you want to eat in a healthy
way, make sure a significant part of your diet is raw plants. It's okay
to eat some steamed, stir-fried or even grilled veggies, but when
grilling foods, avoid burning them because all burned parts contain
toxic, cancer-causing chemicals that promote colon cancer.
Personally, I am absolutely astonished that more people don't already
know all this. I'm even having to talk with my own staff about these
issues, as they don't seem to know the full story on microwave cooking.
Spread the word: Microwaves promote death because they turn nutritious,
healthy food into empty, decimated calories. I gave up using a microwave
well over a decade ago, and I don't even own one.
person who cooks a lot of their food with microwaves will inevitably
have chronic nutritional deficiencies that promote cancer, diabetes,
bone diseases, loss of brain function, heart disease and many other
health problems. The least healthy people of any society are typically
the ones who frequently use the microwave oven to "nuke" their foods.
