In recent times we have made some big changes to our lifestyle. We have removed Fluoride and Meat from our diet and the TV is now in the shed. These changes have affected our lives in the positive and we have more time to self discover and meditate.

We came to the conclusion that Microwave radiation is not safe. Regardless of your thoughts, it would make sense that non-microwaved foods would have to be more nutritionally beneficial. The above infographic from Alkaline Diet has some alarming facts.

Microwaves do not heat food evenly. It cooks from the inside out. We also may be defrosting prior to cooking so it is getting a double hit of radiation. It also changes the chemistry of food, which in turn affects the chemistry in your body. It also creates Carcinogenic compounds.

The cost to your health to save a few minutes here and there, really isn’t worth it.
