Food from a microwave, has no nutritional value. The microwave destroys everything. I was told this, by a alternative health professional, and when you think about it, it makes since.
The food also tastes horrible from a microwave.
Point No. 1: I have to disagree, but my opinions are based on more "traditional" science/nutrition/dietary information. I understand how an "alternative health professional" might feel the way you've cited. And the food isn't "irradiated," with nuclear radiation or the like. The microwave energy yields a physical heating process.
Point No. 2: Food you've eaten may taste horrible from a microwave; I've had some excellent foods prepared that way. It really depends on cooking appropriate foods in a microwave and how they're cooked, in my opinion. Certainly, some things should not be cooked this way; other methods yield much better results in lots of ways.[/quote]
I'm no expert, so my opinion is based on what I have been told and what I have read, and common sense, and on the taste of the food. I can tell, what is reheated in a microwave, and what is not, by taste alone. It's just unnatural.
If you value your health, think twice before using that microwave.
is Killing You!

Microwave cooking is one of the most important causes of ill health. It is certainly one of the most ignored.
There was a lawsuit in 1991 in Oklahoma. A woman named Norma Levitt had hip surgery, but was killed by a simple blood transfusion when a nurse "warmed the blood for the transfusion in a microwave oven!"
Logic suggests that if heating is all there is to microwave cooking, then it doesn't matter how something is heated. Blood for transfusions is routinely warmed, but not in microwave ovens. Does it not therefore follow that microwaving cooking does something quite different?http://www.relfe.com/microwave.html
