We are all in the position of the farmer. If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our seed is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.

The things attracte me in your blog is what you write and the style you demonstrate. Thank you. Best wishes to you.

I am growing some mini lettuce and two grape plants, and i was wondering if you had ANY suggestions for fertilizer...thanks... all help is appreciated.

Too many people are too gullible and too lazy to do their own investigations, and too much of what comes to us over the Internet is a bunch of bunk. Next time you see something that looks incredible, believe me, it probably IS.

The theory behind food that is conventionally heated being better for you is true only because microwavable food often has more preservatives and sodium in it that is put in place by the manufacturer to ensure freshness. It has nothing to do with the microwave altering the "DNA" or genetic makeup of the food.

How do plants dispose of the oxygen they generate? Like, you know how everyone is like "plants are good because they breath in carbon dioxide and breath out oxygen?" Well where exactly does it "breath out" the oxygen? Then what happens to the glucose that the plant produces by breathing in the Carbon Dioxide? Thanks!

I am doing a science fair project on this topic. We are using sweet pea plants; there are six we are feeding regular water and six we are feeding water boiled in the microwave. The plants fed normal water are doing well; the ones fed microwaved water are actually taller than the others but they are not as healthy. They are more withered and shriveled.I agree with callypigian on the fact that different plants react differently to microwaved water, I have never seen this experimant done with pea plants before.

Here's a test that started a week ago, using tomato seeds:

Read Kevin Trudeaus book "Natural cures" to learn about microwaved water idiots

I have been working on an experiment after I saw some shocking photos on a site called execonn the url for the site is http://www.execonn.com/sf/ so I decided to try the experiment myself.
I was surprised to find that the results were in fact the opposite so I went to a few forum sites and found that their was already forums started where I found some good sites some of which there are quotes below

(As you can tell my favorite is the greener side)

“We have seen a number of comments on this, such as what was the water in the microwave boiled in. The thinking is that maybe some leaching took place if it was in plastic. It was boiled in a plastic cup, so this could be a possibility.”

Dudley from the greener side

“It plain to see that leaves were cut off. It is possible that every plant may behave differently, but this was not killed with microwaved water. In fact, there is no record of plant or man killed by microwaved water/food. Looking at your TV/monitor gives you more radiation than food that was once in the microwave ( even if it is LCD ) and I did my own experiment. I brought water to a boil andOk.. I have been saying this for a long long long time.. anyone who knows me knows I never eat microwaved food... it not something I read somewhere its something that made sense when I thought about it.. Im probably going to live longer than all you 'suckas'. seriously when I go to restaurants I ask if anything is microwaved, if it is I dont eat it, I eat my left overs cold when Im too lazy to warm it on the stove, it might not be nice and warm but it wont be all nasty nuked microwaved and slimy.. see, I told all of you.. and it took a little girl and her science project to bring attention to it boiled it for six minutes each time I needed to water my geraniums. I then cooled the water to room temperature and then only watered one particular pot with the microwaved water. The plants in that particular pot actually look better than the rest, probably because it gets a little more shade.”

Aaron from the greener side

I found a different site where I found a conflicting opinion on the matter they got the person who originally did the experiment to answer a question and his answer dug him a deeper hole here is his response

We have seen a number of comments on this, such as what was the water in the microwave boiled in. The thinking is that maybe some leaching took place if it was in plastic. It was boiled in a plastic cup, so this could be a possibility. Also it was not a double blind experiment, so she knew which was which when watering them. On top of that she was wanting the microwaved ones to do poorly, and although most scientists would dismiss the idea, it is possible that her thoughts toward each plant had an effect as well. Bottom line is, the results are interesting, and duplicate the results that others have reported (try Googling '"microwaved water" plants') more experiments need to be done with better controls and as a double blind study. But this was a simple 6th grade science fair project, and was never intended to be anything more than that. The plants were genetically identical, they were produced from graphs from the same parent plant, so that variable can be eliminated.

Yes but that crates a whole new problem with the experiment graphs will die a lot eseyer than Evan diseased plants. For me that ends it

As it was said above, it plain to see that leaves were cut off. It is possible that every plant may behave differently, but this was not killed with microwaved water.

A mA microwave does nothing to water. Read and learn; http://www.snopes.com/science/microwave/plants.asp

As it was said above, it plain to see that leaves were cut off. It is possible that every plant may behave differently, but this was not killed with microwaved water. In fact, there is no record of plant or man killed by microwaved water/food. Looking at your TV/monitor gives you more radiation than food that was once in the microwave ( even if it is LCD ) and still there is no evidence about people dying because of working with PC. In my opinion stress that you have because of avoiding microwaved food is higher danger for you than the food itself.

i am happy to see that mimulus brought up microwaved food and longevity in this blog. i, too, do not use a microwave oven and have read numerous studies on the perils of microwaved food. i have to add that i think we live in a microwave society where there is no "cooking" anymore and therefore a subsequent lack of family life and values. i say throw the microwaves away and cook something healthy. if you want to save energy there are a multitude of ways to save more than switching to microwaves. just putting in my two cents. namaste.

cute_me'_'

hmmm... i don't think so.... it doesnt have poison.... we have also a project like that next month.... so i'm searching for it.."investigatory project"

ap gross

This is a hoax
The leaves have been cut off the plant that is claimed to be the result of microwaved water..
ITS PLAIN TO SEE

Look at the plants the cut off stems are still there to see.

Pat

I'm doing experiment - very controlled, all parameters identical except watering with purified and microwaved. After ten days plants are both quite healthy. Will continue another month to see what happens. But, frankly, I doubt the microwaving hurts the plant. We'll see.

J. Graham

Just thought you might be interested in the results of another experiment inspired by the article you referenced above.

Go to http://www.eclecticreview.net then click on the article "Does giving plants cooled microwaved water kill them?"

callipygian

It is very possible that different plants react differently to microwaved water - some plants may be much more sensitive, while others take a very long time to show any effect. Some may even be able to neutralise the "poison" and thus not show any effect!
I don't eat anything out of a microwave either - I also ask at restaurants. I studied electrical engineering and don't let me start telling you about electromagnetic induction, electrolysis and radiolythic compounds. Microwaved food is toxic! I've said it for years!

elsa

Mary--Very cool! Thanks for sharing your experiment.

Mary Wilson

I did my own experiment. I brought water to a boil and boiled it for six minutes each time I needed to water my geraniums. I then cooled the water to room temperature and then only watered one particular pot with the microwaved water. The plants in that particular pot actually look better than the rest, probably because it gets a little more shade. So I'm assuming there is no difference at all in whether a person uses microwaved water or not. Too many people are too gullible and too lazy to do their own investigations, and too much of what comes to us over the Internet is a bunch of bunk. Next time you see something that looks incredible, believe me, it probably IS.
