It's worth taking a few minutes....

...out of my busy schedule getting ready for Shabbat and Pesach to pass this article along to you. I found this out about seven years ago, while researching ADHD. The next time our microwave went kaput, we didn't buy a new one and haven't used one in years because of the research that I found then. This article basically tells some of the same things that I learned years ago, but the information is not widely known - and millions of unsuspecting people use microwaves. So I wanted to pass this along, so that you can seriously consider doing what I did - get rid of it.

Microwave cooking is one of the most important causes of ill health. It is certainly one of the most ignored...


It was the Russian studies that I read years ago that convinced me to give up the microwave, but this article has some newer studies (that the industry suppressed, of course) from Switzerland. The scientists who did the study had to sue and pursue their case for years to get a gag order lifted from publishing their study (which shouldn't surprise anyone who knows big business these days). Even so, it has not been widely disseminated in the US. (Gee, class, I wonder why?)

If you're wondering, the changes we made all those years ago cleared up my child's ADHD. He went off of the medication and had a normal life after we made several changes, including getting rid of corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, teflon pans, and the microwave. I think these four things do more to damage people's health today than all the illegal drugs on the market. Just because some things are considered kosher doesn't mean they're healthy. Rabbis aren't scientists, and their myopic view of kashrut completely ignores many modern methods of farming, manufacturing, and preparing food that are simply unnatural, unacceptable, and dangerous. So think about this when you go to load back up on your favorite packaged foods after Pesach this year. You might want to consider trashing the microwave and the boxed junk you've been eating and start with a fresh slate. We did, and the results have been very good, class. You can, too.
