Nutrition Content

Due to its rapid and violent knows the microwave heating to cause more damage. Brought us to imagine It also changes the cell structure, so the nutritional value of almost all the food reaches zero. Broccoli loses 97% of all are important antioxidants and switches garlic within 60 seconds are most active anti-cancer substance ‘allinase’ out.

Microwave Rays

Both the new and the old microwave radiation leaks have (at old magnetrons is the leakage considerably larger). According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of America, however, this dose far below the permissible grends. Independent consumer ‘Power Watch’ has announced, however, that this is not so far below the limit. The radiation from a microwave are in fact many times stronger than that of a phone mast. This radiation escaping mainly from the glass area. Overexposure of the body to the microwave is very dangerous and may involve the following consequences.

  • Depression
  • Nausea
  • Eye problems
  • Cancer
  • Brain Damage
  • Memory
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fault in hormone production
  • Decrease IQ
  • Heart deviation

Microwave-proof packaging

Most microwaveable trays, containers and packaging to toxic chemicals released during heating (especially plastics). These are chemicals such as benzene, xylene, toluene, polyethylene, bispherol.
