#41–Very little research was done on the effects of eating food cooked in microwave ovens before they were marketed to the public. The small amount which was carried out showed that cooking in the microwave makes fats and proteins more difficult to assimilate. Ever cook an egg in one of these things? It comes out tasting like a hockey puck! More recent studies show changes in vitamin content as well as abnormal blood profiles in those consuming microwaved foods similar to the blood profiles of people in the early stages of cancer. I’d highly suggest getting rid of it. Or maybe you can put some metal in it before turning it on for fireworks on the 4th of July.
