My American classmate, Mike taught me to use the microwave ovens and bragged about all the wonders it could dish out. The Americans love the easy-way-out lifestyle and created so many microwave-easy food like mashed potatoes, pop corns, cup cakes, cappuccino and even rice! I found them very convenient & fast. On the Winter mornings, I would place my socks & scarfs in the microwave for 30 seconds before dashing out in the cold to catch the bus. It was truly so warm and nice! Now please don't try that, just read below.
Years later, I read much scary stories about the danger brought by microwave ovens. One lunatic lady in US placed her alive cat and microwaved it! Meeeoooow! The cat bled to death before it exploded into small pulps! So gruesome lah! Argh!
The microwave oven was invented by Dr. Percy LeBaron Spencer in 1946 and it was actually a by-product of another technology using the magnetron which produced the electromagnetic energy. Over the years, it was a flop item due to its huge size, weight and high cost. The manufacturers came in to simplify and made them user-friendly at cheaper costs. Since then almost every American home has at least 1 or 2 microwave ovens.
A well known Swiss Food Scientist - Dr. Hans Ulrich shared his research findings that food cooked or defrosted in a microwave oven caused changes in the blood indicative of a developing pathological process, as is also found in carcinoma. Put simply, microwave food causes CANCER!
Russia has banned the microwaves in 1976! I thought that the Russians are smart devils in the nuclear age, so they could be wise to detect its danger easily. I decided to play safe and live without one. I would just use a normal baking oven or oven toaster to cook.
Toy manufacturers have rolled out 'microwave ovens' for kids to play. They are very safe to play with but the kids are trained from young to appreciate its usage without knowing the danger that lies ahead. Some argued with me that why didn't the US government ban the microwaves if these ovens brought so much dangers. I replied that if they could ban smoking and nicotine, they might consider to ban microwaves too. Both kills!
SMOKING KILLS! SO DOES A MICROWAVE OVEN!
