Experiment: Microwaved Water Kills Plants

It is time to come with a follow up story to further prove that the Microwave oven is seriously dangerous to people and not only.

It is claimed by Microwave oven producers and even scientists that the Microwave oven is not only ok to use but it is actually even recommended. Some go as far as claiming that it makes the food more healthy.

Cancerhelp.co.uk says for example that “microwaving can actually be quite a healthy way to cook” but how could it be healthy when it radiates the food and it destroys vitamins such as Vitamin B12?

It is true that the Microwave oven uses a nonionizing form of radiation which is not as cancerous as the ionizing radiation but still are you willing to risk your health over a fast way to heat your food? There are other ways to heat your food without any risks and controversies.

Some but not all studies suggest that long-term exposure to nonionizing form of radiation may have a carcinogenic effect. Needless to say is that the ionizing radiation is highly carcinogenic (can provoke cancer) and only few exposures to ionizing radiation can result in a random form of cancer. Exposure to ionizing radiation is done when you take an X-Ray for example or by other means.

The Human DNA is very sensible to radiations of any form, so long time exposure to both ionizing and nonionizing radiation can change a cell’s DNA. If this happens, then the cell’s in built instructions about how to live and grow are jumbled around. It is then possible for the cell to do something very different from what it is supposed to do. For example, it may become cancerous and keep reproducing in an uncontrolled way. This could take years to happen but it still means that a cancer may eventually develop.

Now after knowing why the Microwave oven is dangerous it is time to present an experiment conducted at home almost five years ago by Arielle Reynolds from Knoxville, Tennessee.

Below is a science fair project that Arielle Reynolds did. 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. So if the microwave water kills plants it can definitely hurt people too. It is easy to make this test and moreover, everyone is encouraged to make a similar test and let us know of their results.

    This is junk “science”. It has been debunked dozens of times and the “experimenter” Arielle Reynolds has admitted on another site that she killed the other plant.

    Wow I cannot believe that a “serious” site would run such claptrap.

    I’m impressed at the perfect scissor cuts the microwaved water made on the plant…

    Seriously, though, radiation doesn’t stay in water… What microwaves do is that they make the water molecules vibrate, but they don’t change the structure of the molecules. If they did, then that would disprove VSEPR and a bunch of other scientific facts that are obviously real things. I mean, if she did the experiment honestly, then the best explanation of the results is that the soil or the seeds in the microwaved one were bad. But the fairly obvious places where the leaves were cut off suggest scientific dishonesty, which brings me to my next point: this was not a peer-reviewed scientific article. It was a science fair project. And they’re reporting on it. And frankly, being that there was exactly one trial, I have a very hard time understanding how slow the news must have been in order to call that news…

    Ill say it before someone else does. Microwaving food is not bad for you. While it does radiate the food and destroy the vitamins. The radiation does not stay connected to the food, now does Destroying some vitamins make the food unhealthy, considering we are already to supposed to take daily vitamins. Saying microwaves are bad is a lie. Also I realised something. And purified water wouldn’t boil in a microwave. It would heat past boiling point and just be hot as hell. Just saying
    . Doing that to a plant would of course. Kill it.

    I only ever microwave junk food ;)
    Also, this article is obviously a jape.

    Read all about this on snopes.com and their controlled study to disprove it.

    or base all of your hocus pocus beliefs on the research of teenagers.

    Some questions:

    Why is there only one plant per factor?
    Where is there no control i.e. a plant that did not receive heated water?
    Why cut the leaves off thus denying us the actual evidence?
    Cutting the leaves off left open wounds subject to infection while also reducing the plant’s ability to photosynthesise its way to health again.
    Why is the earth a different colour in the pots?
    Different types of earth?
    Different ventilation?
    Different temperature?
    Different watering (drought? root rot?)
    Why is the microwaved plant leaning over so much – was it kept in the dark and stressed?

    In short, the only conclusion that one can validly make is that scissors can cut leaves.

    BUT – all this supposes this was a sincere experiment, though appallingly done. But was it? Was there a sinister element?

    Look at days 1 and 5 and spot a difference, any difference. Any difference at all. The ONLY difference is in the microwaved plant. Look at the lighting, reflections and shadows and you will notice they are not in keeping with rest of the picture, they have been FAKED. When Nature refused to comply, rather than change their hypothesis as is done by the scientist, here the evidence is falcified. This is a fraudulent attempt to trick you into believing an argument with no merit.

    Sorry. This is FALSE. Disregard it.

    Ok, so this is a sample size (n) of one? Ignore results. This is not scientific evidence. Do this with 1000 plants more than once and we can have a discussion about evidence.

    I was very skeptical of this article the first time I had seen it. First off theres only one example of the two different types and there should be many more. To have a truly scientific expariment you cant rely on just one factor. I do not agree with this article.

    Replication is a fundamental of scientific method. It means repeating an experiment in exactly the same way to see if the results are repeated. So :

    Choose 2 plants.
    Cut the leaves off the one you like least.
    Take photographs.

    The water bit was irrelevant and a red herring. The above is following exactly what was done in the original “study”.
