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:

The Electromagnetic Spectrum Cheat Sheet

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.

HOLD. THE. FUCK. UP.

Alright let’s have a lil conversation here, shall we?

Imma address this pos image princess by princess, here we go.

SNOW WHITE - now before I begin writing about Snow White, let’s put this into context, shall we? Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs came out in the 1930s. THE NINETEEN THIRTIES. You think there were a whole lot of strong females running around in movies from this era? There weren’t. Women had only even had the right to vote in national elections for 17 years. Its a movie based on a fairytale written centuries ago. OF COURSE IT IS NOT GOING TO FEATURE A PARTICULARLY STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER. Now, let’s also keep in mind that Snow White is 14. Basically a child. And when her stepmother tried to KILL HER, she ran off into the forest and survived long enough to find a place to stay and people to support her. In fact, she does more to support the dwarfs than they do to help her. Yes, she is saved by her beauty, but let’s keep in mind that she met the prince before she “died” and so he isn’t only judging her by her face.

AURORA - Aurora is cursed at birth by a witch who was pissed she didn’t get invited to her mutherfucking birthday party. THATS THE WHOLE REASON. SHE DIDNT GET AN INVITE SO SHE COMES A BURSTIN IN TO LAY DOWN SOME SHIT. So Aurora can’t even help what her fate will be because it is predestined for her. She lives almost alone in the forest. And what is this “owner” shit?? Prince Philip is  FUCKING BADASS and saves Aurora from a DRAGON. And again, this movie was made in the 1950s. Still not a notoriously strong time for women.

JASMINE - are you fucking joking me with this one. The whole kickstarter of the story, THE WHOLE REASON THIS HAPPENS, is because Jasmine stands up and says “this law that says I have to be married to have power is STUPID AND WRONG”. She is enslaved by a powerful man and she stands up and says “hey moron this is STUPID AND WRONG” and then uses her assets to help Aladdin to defeat Jafar. And then what happens at the end of the movie? Her father says “hey that law that we have that says you have to marry a prince is STUPID AND WRONG AND I AM GETTING RID OF IT BECAUSE IT IS STUPID AND WRONG” jfc I can’t even with this one, Jasmine is one of the strongest princesses.

ARIEL - “this one” had intentions of becoming a human BEFORE she met Eric. “This one” sang A WHOLE EFFIN MUSICAL NUMBER ABOUT IT before she even SAW the prince. “This one” saves her prince when HE ALMOST DROWNS in the ocean after being hypnotized and almost married off to an evil sea witch in disguise. “This one” followed her heart instead of doing what her parent said she had to. “This one” stood up and got what she wanted. Yes, Ariel is silly and cute BUT SHE IS ALSO A BADASS WHO STANDS UP TO A HUGE ASS SEA WITCH WITH AN ALL POWERFUL TRIDENT

BELLE - OMG WTF WHO CAME UP WITH THIS DESCRIPTION OF BELLE BECAUSE I WILL FIND YOU AND CUT OUT YOUR INNARDS. Belle is well read, quirky, refuses to give in to the unwanted sexual advances of a man, embarasses that man in front of a whole village BECAUSE of those unwanted sexual advances, doesn’t judge on appearances, and furthurmore, IT ISNT HER GODDAMN SEXUALITY THAT MAKES THE BEAST LOVE HER ALRIGHT YOU FUCK TRUMPET. It is her brains and her heart and her ability to see past the fur and appreciate him for who he is, her willingness to give herself for her father, her patience and her kindness and even her stubbornness to not take orders and do what she sees right. FOR FUCKS SAKE

CINDERELLA - Again, the 1950s. Cinderella is a hard worker who never gives up hope and does everything she can to get to the ball. When she gets there she doesn’t even seek out the prince, he comes to her. ARE YOU GONNA TELL ME THAT PHYSICAL ATTRACTION NEVER HAPPENS IN THE REAL WORLD BECAUSE IT DOES. And then they spent hours together in a garden dancing and talking and he wants to marry her because he loves her OUT OF ALL THE GIRLS IN THE KINGDOM he picks her and he doesn’t even care where she came from. He doesn’t even know her name. So he uses what he can to find her and thats a shoe. Also, watch the Cinderella sequels because the prince sure as hell isnt only interested in her for her looks. Cinderella got her happy ending because she worked hard for it and DESERVED IT and never gave up hope.

SORRY FOR THE RANT BUT THIS PICTURE OFFENDED ME ON A DEEP PERSONAL LEVEL LIKE THESE ARE MY GIRLS YOU DONT GO PICKEN ON THEM FOR STUPID REASONS ALRIGHT

I like this rant and wish more people to see it.

Yo, OP, Belle is a motherfucking BADASS and she’s a terrific role model for people (like me) who are ostracized by society for being different, for being quirky or for dancing to the beat of their own drum or for DARING NOT TO FIT INTO SOCIETY’S NARROW BOX.

Don’t you ever diss Belle in front of me, because I will cut a bitch.
