Microwaves: Convenience vs. Long term health?
    #4357962 - 07/01/05 03:05 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)



--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

I doubt it. Once the scientific and medical community come out against it I'll believe it, but these little conspiracies I always ignore.

Same with MSG and aspartame, and refined sugar, and all the other factors that the FDA hasn't come out against yet people are hysterical about.

I think its definitely possible.

I mean, look how long it took people to figure out smoking cigarettes and asbestos from factories was fatal?

Also the prolonged exposure to exast in big cities, you cant even safelt go out for a "jog" anymore due to pollution. it seems like a stretch, but it could be...

what about cell phones causing tumors?

its all interesting at least

Food just sucks when it's cooked in a microwave.

I think most anything causing us damage is a possibility.

But there's so many conspiracies and problems you could point to as killing off humanity, that it's really useless to worry about it until there's strong evidence or the scientific/ medical community comes out against it. Until one of those two happens, I tend to just live life as normal and not worry about it, otherwise I'd probably be curled up inside a bubble being fed nutrition from a machine.

Depends what you cook and how you cook it. Microwaves can be very underestimated (and the ones that are combo grills are great)

Quote:

You cannot do serious cooking in a microwave kitchen myth cooking urban legend

This is one of the very silliest myths but it refuses to die out. There are a lot of people who use their microwave for nothing but boiling water and reheating leftovers and they are really missing out on a lot. I suspect that this myth got its start when microwaves were a new tool and a lot of awful microwave recipe books were published. Some people tried to use their microwave as a general purpose stove and oven replacement rather than as a more specialized tool that is well suited for some jobs but not at all useful for others. For example you would not want to use a microwave for a roast beef, fried potatoes, or baking bread, but it works just great for things like rice, poached fish, and steamed veggies. I find it particularly handy for making polenta and risotto, with results that are every bit as good as the stovetop with much less work and worry. If you want to expand your microwave repertoire I highly recommend The Microwave Gourmet by Barbara Kafka. Another excellent book is The Moghul Microwave by Julie Sahni (Indian dishes).

Those web sites talk about such things as heating blood for transfusion and baby bottles in microwaves.

The reason you don't warm blood for transfusion or baby bottles in microwaves is for the same reason you should use a steam bath to do this. Microwaves cause localized hot spots in the food. In the case of blood, it will cause cauterization (clotting) of the blood in that hot spot. The same can happen with overheated baby milk.

This is not to say that microwaves are dangerous and has nothing to do with cancer. All the ill effects attributed to microwaves by those quack web sites can be attributed to heating food in a pan. Again, this is why hospitals don't put transfusion blood in a pan and why mothers are warned to warm baby milk by immersing the bottle in hot water and not by heating it in a pan.

As for cell phones causing tumors, this has been studied and studied and studied, both statistically in humans, and by subjecting animals to thousands of times more powerful EM radiation than what comes from a cell phone 24x7 for years. Not a single scientifically valid study has found any reason to believe cell phones cause tumors or any other kind of health damage other than stupid people crashing cars while talking to their girlfriend on the phone.

By some estimates there are currently a half billion cell phones in daily use around the world but there is absolutely no correlated rise in cancer since their use became prevalent based on World Health Organization data.

And when I was in college, my roommate who was terrified of microwaves, also thought fluorescent lights would make her hair fall out. All this with absolutely no rational thought behind her beliefs. :shrug:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.
