The Dangers of Microwave Radiation: Experiment proves water that has been boiled in a microwave oven is harmful to plants?
You might have seen this email about an experiment at a science fair proved that water that has been heated with a microwave oven causes the plant to wither and die within days; however, another identical plant given water that was boiled on a conventional stove grew normally during the same time period.
The question remains, does microwaved food and water are hazardous to human or plants? Is there any structural difference between water boiled on a stove top and water boiled in a microwave?
There's some doubt about the photographs displayed above actually are from a real experiment or digitally altered, as the "Day One" and "Day Five" photos appear to be remarkably consistent except the appearance of the plant.
But so far, there are no scientific proof that microwaved food and water are hazardous to humans or plant life.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also hasn't found any links to microwaved food creating any health hazards. The agency is, however, studying the possibility that low-level radiation emitted from microwaves could affect those who stand nearby while they’re in use.
