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.

      I would think that as a plant is dieing it would not utilize the water the same way that a healthy plant would. Therefore, there would be more moisture in the plant that was dieing.

    Instead of complaining or criticising why don’t you experiment yourself.
    Use perhaps 6 plants instead of 2. Use a measuring cup for accuracy. Use a thermometer for temperature and anything else which helps to ensure the experiment is not biased in any way toward either sample. You may find it interesting as wel as the result.

    Very interesting. Unfortunately, not very scientific. The control is not sufficient. More than one sample of each would be needed. I have plants that die and look like the one on the left using normal conditions. There could be other variables (bacterial or other disease).
    As a disclaimer – I do not have and do not use microwave. I hope the results are true. However, as a scientist I am pointing that the experiment does not necessarily show the connection due to its small scale.

      You’re absolutely correct; however, this should give us all GREAT PAUSE and compel further research. Until that’s done, our microwaves are 100% gone and will never return. But guess what, Obama’s fascist FDA has secretly gotten OK to irradiate all meat. It’s not for our benefit, but actually serves two purposes – 1, it lets the grubby meat producers sell literally shit-covered meat “safely”, and 2, it serves the NWO / Global Elite / Eugnicists’ goal of massive planetary depopulation. Ultimately, only the Stupids and the Unawake/Unaware will be killed off and profited upon. What will that amount to, at most 50%? Still, that’d be pretty decent, by the NWO/Depop standards, I guess. So, microwaving (ovens, cell towers, “free” wifi) to continue 100% full-speed, damn all consequences, and let them eat their brain tumors!

    In this there are too many variables. The vases aren’t the same. There are only 2 plants and no control. You didn’t show regular un-purified water’s effects. additionally there are more cuts applied to the dying plant and the removal of the leaves in greater amount over your purified sample could also have effected it. The test must be repeatable under the exact same conditions. I believe you are unable to repeat this with the same results with no explainable deviation.

  12. John Smith the 42nd. United States says:

    Agreed, junk science. A better experiment would have used a large number of plants with various exposure to the microwave. Boiled, warmed, and short exposure vs. stove heated water using the same variables. The environment must be clean and similar as well. Forcing molecules to bounce around through ionization has the same effect as using fire. One thing however, you cook anything long enough, the minerals and nutrients will break down. Microwaves heat unevenly and erratically so yes, you can’t get as much as compared to steaming vegetables. Will you die or get cancer from this? No freaking way, that is absolutely insane just to imply that. The only way that this could possibly happen is the chemical reaction in the heating changes a non-carcinogenic molecule to a carcinogenic one. In other words, if you put a piece of shit in the microwave and cook it, you end up with one hot piece of shit. Hell, most cooks would have cancer too who have working the the industry over the past 50 years. You know, that hot plate they take out to you in the restaurant is hot from the microwave… it’s not like they are warming the plates for your enjoyment.

    Good start. Do the experiment in a more controlled environment next time. Also, it might be interesting to do the microwave/non-microwave thing on purified water,tap water,etc. in a chart that covers all aspects. And you would have to have a control for both micro & not maybe with distilled water along with temperatures, light, and soil analysis. Sounds like a lot but I would really like this experiment to have some tighter credibility because this is an important issue.

  19. This experiment may not be scientific enough for those,who always doubt. I have done this with wheat germs repeatedly and others have done this same according to my proposal with the same result. The water was irradiated tap water and it was irradiated with a normal mobile phone. The growth of the sample of 100 seeds with the irradiated water was visibly retarded. The experiment was extended with a mobile phone with a electrosmog neutralising device attached to it and then there is no retardation of growth. You can find a picture on http://www.bioprotect.de in the chapter ERFAHRUNGEN/EXPERIENCES. This finding has far reaching consequences, but almost no one seems to realize this.

  21. I’m realizing that I DID do this experiment! I used to warm the water for my Aftrican Violets in the microwave – they prefer warm water and my well water is the temp of newly melted snow. They were dying. I tried to look for causes … got them a plant heater to put under thier pots to warm them; put a little fan in the room hearing they need circulating air. Still they were giving up. It was bout the time that someone said microwaves kill water that I switched to heating my coffee water on the stove and using the left-over to warm the plant water. For some reason, they are all now thriving. I never thought about the water. Who knows? – Brandon

    My grandmother has even used a microwave in her home for 40 years and she is dying at the early age of 95. The microwave did it, I am sure of it. Some how the ionization bouncing those particles around, heating very unevenly mind you, will kill plants. Well “God Damn”, I thought plants liked boiling water. Do you people have any idea that 160GHz CMB radiation is uniformally spread throughout the universe and goes through you body every day? You think your 2.4GHz or 5GHz internet router is going to kill you? Don’t use it then. That radiation makes molecules bounce to heat up and does not irradiate the molecules. Unless the M.D. here has had extensive physics training in the operating room, these claims are just ridiculous. I am still waiting for the LHC to pump out some black holes to suck up the planet to finally be done with this madness.

However, I would just like to explain a phenomenon concerning H2O. Natural water is a very strange material and has many qualities, even for healing. However, as soon as you push water through straight pipes or contaminate with copper and other metals it leaves an inert liquid and particularly putting it in a microwave which destroys its magical properties.There are many proven scientific tests on water which confirms its very strange properties.

  32. kiwi-ian New Zealand says:

    2 comments on the experiment:
    1) This is a high school experiment which my son also did but on a bigger scale, 10 seeds in each batch, 3 batches: microwaved (in a glass container), boiled (in a glass container in a conventional fan oven), ordinary water. All 30 pots were filled with potting mix from the same bag. All were fed by the same measured amounts of water at the same time. All were kept together in the same light, ventilation and temperature.After 30 days, leaves were stripped off the plants and counted, weighed and lengths measured to give both quantitative and qualitative results.

    Results: The ordinary water had a few more leaves and leaf weight. There was NO significant difference between microwaved or oven heated watered plants. NONE. The implication is that it is the heat not microwaving that created the difference and this is small. This is actually the result from repeated experiments. All those who say microwaving affects the water, please actually do the experiment (rather than quoting this very small experiment) and have the controls.

    2nd comment – the pictures do not show comparable pots.
    - The potting mixes are of different colours suggesting overwatering or a cooler or shadier environment. Or completely different earth.
    - The microwaved watered plant shows distinct phototropism, i.e. it is leaning hard over to get at the light, whereas the other plant looks like it had light above it and is growing straight up. Straining for available light would stress the plant.
    - The leaves that have been stripped from the plant will have injured it, leaving wounds that could be infected; it also left the plant with a lesser ability to photosynthesise and repair itself.
    - why were the leaves stripped? We have no evidence that it was necessary and dead wilted leaves (if they existed) would have been a stronger indication of damage.
    - Who actually did the experiment quoted in the article above? Some sites say it was anthroposophist A. Bohmert, or her granddaughter. Others say it was their daughter/granddaughter. This site says it is Arielle Reynolds. This is one of only 2 sets of photos of “failed” experiments, copied by all the anti MW sites, yet debunkers do their own experiments – and find no differences.

    Finally please, PLEASE, look up “radiation” in a science dictionary. Yes you are correct that ionising and non-ionising are different, but both heat and light are types of radiation with higher energy than MWs, if MWs damaged food then exposing food to light or heat would do even more damage!! Actually this is the case, heat does indeed damage food, it’s colloquially called cooking. MW do not leave a radiation residue, just as shining a light won’t leave a residue (phosphorescence and fluorescence are a different thing). It is actually impossible to tell if something has been microwaved by measuring residual radiation.

    @ Homer, Johnatl and John Smith et al.:

    I do believe you need to go back to school. Your statements belie your ignorance of such fundamental things as the bond angle. Saying things like “water is just two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom” essentially tells everyone that you are just wags posting about things you have no clue about.

    Microwaving water *does* change the molecule, specifically the bond angle. In addition, it completely strips food of any of its nutrition, and creates radiolytic compounds. So before you spout of your nonsense about “junk science” how about you take the time to actually understand that science?

    • kiwi-ian New Zealand says:

      Not junk science? And you talk of “radiolytic compounds”? Do you know what radiolysis is? As m2600 says, for radiolysis to occur you need very high energy radio-active type radiation, MWs are relatively low energy radiation which cannot even cause ionisation let alone radiolysis. Radiolytic compounds just ain’t gonna happen.

      As for bond angles, these are a function of the repulsion the various atoms have (given that they have a bond as well) and always form the same angle unless you change the energy of the atom, which needs radiolysis, which just ain’t gonna happen. (The physics has been simplified here to get the point across)

      Please please do not confuse radiation with radio-activity. If necessary go to the textbooks or even Wikipedia for clarification, if you must consult a dictionary make it a scientific one as normal dictionaries don’t include science.

      Please do this experiment yourself, don’t rely on others (the above pictures prove that there are those that will lie to prove their point).

      I’m afraid that until someone can come in with peer reviewed evidence of a repeatable nature showing a feasible mechanism of any dangers, we will have to continue calling this Junk Science.

      This is a rather moronic comment. Do you use Super Glue? Duc Tape? Ever played with Silly Putty?? Those and more all have come from the military.

    Look at all these fuckin clowns, arguing from some self-aggrandized position. They’re the same negativos who have always been against real advancement, the same ones who still “know fer sure” that ‘cold fusion’ doesn’t work, the same ones who are ‘absolutely positive’ that wifi and cell phones are perfectly fine for us all, the same ones who are ‘proof positive’ that the right kind of music does not aid brain development, the same ones who are certain that fluoride in water is a good thing, that mercury in fillings is perfectly fine, that television “programming” has no ill effect, that pill nutrients are fine substitutes for and even preferable to Mother Nature. Know what most everyone else thinks and says? FUNK YOU – you should be killed now with heavy clubs and stones.

    Interesting article BUT this has been repeated many times and the results have always been quite different. IE “”NO DIFFERENCE”". Before you all go off screaming “Look at this terrible news!!” You need to do a bit more reading on this as I did. Go look at the Snopes duplication of this .. and be happy to have a microwave.

    this article is a lie. don’t believe me? test it yourself. A microwave doesn’t irradiate water with ionizing radiation (ie nuclear)… but non-ionizing radiation IE the same radiation as light, heat, radio waves… Water heated with a microwave has no chemical difference than water heated by fire…

    so sad to see such ignorance blindly supported…

    quote: Intriguingly, the Straight Dope (a source I usually trust) has written an article about the controversy over microwave cooking, and he notes that scientists actually do not fully understand the chemical changes that take place when food is microwaved, and so there may indeed be some kind of “microwave effect.” He notes a 1992 Stanford study that found microwaving breast milk mysteriously reduces its infection-fighting properties, as well as studies that have found that microwaves can accelerate certain chemical reactions. He writes: “‘One suggestion,’ a bunch of chemists wrote recently, ‘is that this is some form of ‘ponderomotive’ driving force that arises when high frequency electric fields modulate ionic currents near interfaces with abrupt differences in ion mobility.’” He doesn’t attempt to explain this theory. “Scientists have long used microwave ovens to heat up their coffee just like everybody else, but in the late 1980s they came to a startling realization: The ovens could greatly accelerate useful chemical reactions, sometimes by a factor of a thousand. Processes that once took hours, days, or months could be completed in minutes, often without the toxic solvents previously required.” “…we still don’t have enough info to answer it with anything other than paranoid speculation or empty reassurance.” http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2595/does-microwaving-kill-nutrients-in-food-is-microwaving-safe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ponderomotive_force http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/comments/microwaved_water_kills_plants

    I’ve recently done this experiment for my botany class, using 3 different kinds of water with a microwaved counterpart for each, and 5 radish seeds were sewn for each of those. Overall, my results showed that the microwaved plants not only flourished but did better than their counterparts. (except the distilled water, they were about the same)

    I will say one thing, I made sure to microwave my water in a glass bowl instead of a plastic container. Maybe that was a factor? This experiment really needs to be looked at further to eliminate other variables.

    I hate these brain dead losers who quote Snopes. Who the fuck is Snopes? God?
    Water is called a bipolar molecule with one Oxygen and two Hydrogens spaced 105 degrees apart, if I remember. If it were spaced differently, it wouldn’t be water. It would be something else. Plants don’t give a shit. Water by any other name is water, to be Shakespearean about this.

      What about the braindead losers who buy into fallacious arguments and “experiments” that use the smallest sample size possible (2) and have no control group whatsoever?

    hogwash! Microwaved water is no different than stove-heated water and retains no microwaves or “radiation” from the heating:

    Purified water is definitely not a good idea to water plants with. It lacks any minerals that are useful to plants. This experiment is botched from the very start.
    That so many people buy into it based from a few pictures we’re supposed to take at face value tells a lot about how easy mass manipulation is.

    do you let either of the waters stand for few days? I asume the microwaved water is cooled off!
