It’s Time to Trade in Your Microwave!

Have you ever stopped to wonder how your microwave can cook food so quickly? What technology is used to generate the heat?

Dr. Edward Group DC, NP, DACBN, DCBCN, DABFM, explains that “A microwave is a form of non-ionizing radiation. As a matter of contrast, ionizing radiation changes the electromagnetic nature of atoms, or ionizes them. This alters the way they interact with other atoms and molecules around them. X-rays, gamma radiation, and nuclear medicine (CT scans, barium swallows, and mammograms) are types of ionizing radiation. Your food is being zapped by high-frequency waves of heat.”1

This radiation exposure changes the structure of the food you are heating up, and cause extreme nutrient loss, as the food is cooked at such high temperatures for a short period of time. The enzymes that are naturally occurring are denatured and can no longer give you the nutrients they would in their raw form.

Additionally, microwaves are made with an assortment of chemicals and carcinogens that are released into the cooking area, and ultimately your food, at high temperatures.

Hans Hertel, a Swiss scientist, further explains the damage caused by microwaves: “There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent, destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts… This is how microwave cooking heat is generated – friction from this violence in water molecules. Structures of molecules are torn apart, molecules are forcefully deformed (called structural isomerism) and thus become impaired in quality.”2

What is the Solution?

The best way to eat your fruit and vegetables is in their raw form. In this way, they have not been exposed to damaging heat and cooking practices and are able to provide the highest, most bioavailable amount of nutrients possible. If you must cook your food, steam it for the shortest time possible to maintain its integrity.
