THE MILLENNIUM REPORT: Reporting the Most Important News in the World Today


TMR Editor’s Note:
It has long been said that most sickness begins in the kitchen.  Never have truer words been spoken.  

There are multiple reasons why this is the case ranging from improper food management to unhygienic cooking practices, from moldy refrigerators to contaminated countertops, from unhealthy food combinations to cooking old dead foods, from salmonella in the poultry products to E. coli in the beef products.  

With the introduction of the microwave oven into virtually every home in America, the kichen can now be considered a certified crime scene.  Yes, they’re that bad … and much worse than most will ever believe, so accustomed are they to nuking their food on a daily basis.

There’s a very good reason why they call it “NUKING”, yes?!

The Millennium Report


Microwave Ovens: Remove Them From Your Kitchens …

NOW ! ! !

Should we end this coaching session right here and now? We’d like to but so many are attached to this little EMR & Microwave outputting beast. Truly, the Microwave Oven has become a permanent fixture in virtually every kitchen in America.

What an unmitigated health disaster this has created!

Let’s take a look at the evidence. Not the scientific evidence just yet. The real evidence known as nuked food.

How many times have you gone to a restaurant and been served a nuked ‘baked’ potato? A nuked potato has been cooked by a microwave oven, so why do they still call it baked?! It’s not baked in an oven; it’s micorwaved, which is a vastly different cooking method.

We don’t go to restaurants, and we don’t eat potatoes (they’re nightshades); nevertheless, in years past we have been out and about and have seen and heard about the thing they called a baked potato in many restaurants. 

Would you eat that ‘baked’ potato and if so, why would you do such a thing?!?!
Can we end this discussion now or must we go on.

We might as well open this little pandora’s box all the way since we came this far. Inasmuch as we found a health investigator who has done a great job at assembling some very authoritative evidence against the use of microwaves, we have taken the liberty of quoting her article “Microwaving — Dangers to Your Food and You?” quite liberally. As follows:

“In Dr. Lita Lee’s book, “Health Effects of Microwave Radiation – Microwave Ovens,” and in the March and September 1991 issues of Earthletter, she stated that every microwave oven leaks electro-magnetic radiation, harms food and converts substances cooked in it to dangerous organ-toxic and carcinogenic products. Micro ovens are far more harmful than previously imagined. Listed are the many findings of the German and Russian investigators. Here are just a few:

Cancer Causing Effects — Creation of a ‘binding effect’ to radioactivity in the atmosphere, creation of cancer-causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds, malfunctions within the lymphatic systems, higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum, cancer-causing free radicals, stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Decrease In Food Value — Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. There was a decrease in bioavailability of B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods, a loss of 60 to 90% of the vital energy field of all tested foods, and a marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

Biological Effects of Exposure — Breakdown of the human “life-energy field,” degeneration and circuit breakdowns within the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside, loss of balance, long term cumulative loss of vital energy and long-lasting residual effects.

The same author has listed many other very good reasons “to throw out your Microwave oven.:

1. Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term, permanent, brain damage by ‘shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain (de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue).
2. The human body cannot metabolize (breakdown) the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.
3. Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.
4. The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual (long term, permanent) within the human body.
5. Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.
6. The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
7. Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths (tumors). This may explain the rapid increased rate of colon cancer in America.
8. The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.
9. Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and serum alterations.
10. Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.” [1]
(Per Microwaving — Dangers to Your Food and You?)

Are you convinced yet?

Clearly the primary explanation for so many people refusing to listen to the voice of reason or the gut feeling of common sense concerning this extremely serious health matter, is the irresistible convenience that comes with using such a beast … 3 times per day, every day of the week, every month of the year, for life. Now that’s a life sentence, if ever we have seen one meted out to oneself!

Is that you? Hopefully not, because the unintended consequences, collateral damage and toxic side effects of microwave usage completely justify its exile to the global trash heap.

Just in case you still need more evidence we present more quoted material under the heading—”Various Studies on Microwave Cooking

“The most controlled (and scary) research was almost suppressed from public knowledge before being published. Two Swiss researchers sequestered subjects under close scrutiny and blood tests were conducted after the subjects randomly ate food that was either microwaved or conventionally cooked. They found all sorts of potentially nasty stuff:

• Blood hemoglobin levels decreased significantly after ingesting microwaved foods, both total levels and the amount contained in each red blood cell.
• White blood cell levels tended to increase for no other reason than foods were microwaved.
• Microwaves altered protein molecules.
• LDL cholesterol (the ‘bad’ type) increased relative to HDL cholesterol (the ‘good’ type).

The researchers were immediately sued by the “Swiss Association of Dealers for Electroapparatuses for Households and Industry,” and one of the authors was convicted by the Swiss Federal Court of “interfering with commerce.” The fine was the equivalent of $65,000.”

For those who need still more we have the deleterious effects on human milk quoted below:

“In the journal Pediatrics, Apr. 1992, research appeared that warned that microwaving human milk, even at a low setting, can destroy some of its important disease-fighting capabilities. Pediatrician John A. Kerner, Jr. and his co-workers at Stanford University reported that breast milk that was microwaved lost lysozyme activity, antibodies, and fostered the growth of more potentially pathogenic bacteria. Adverse changes at such low temperatures suggest that microwaving itself may in fact cause some injury to the milk above and beyond the heating.”

And then there’s the problem it causes with vitamin B-12:

“A nutrition book published in 2003 states that for most nutrients, microwave heating minimizes losses compared to traditional cooking methods. Such is not the case for vitamin B-12. Microwave heating inactivates vitamin B-12. To preserve this vitamin, use the oven or stovetop instead of the microwave to cook meats and milk products (major sources of vitamin B-12). Many elderly are at risk of B-12 deficiency and shouldn’t microwave meat, milk, eggs or B-12 fortified foods, unless they only occasionally microwave or are getting B-12 in a supplement or fortified cereal.”
{Elizabeth Snyder, MS, RD, nutrition instructor, Southern Adventist University, Collegedale, Tennessee, in Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Food & Fitness Advisor newsletter, Mar. 2003}

“Few people realize that many of the vitamins in food are rapidly being destroyed by cooking. Even fewer know that microwaving destroys vitamins five times more quickly than does regular cooking. After just six minutes of microwaving, nearly half of the vitamin B-12 was destroyed when a Japanese dietitian measured the levels after microwaving. Vitamin B-12 was singled out for study since it is of vital importance in helping to prevent several major diseases that become more common as we grow older, including arteriosclerosis (cholesterol deposits in arteries), heart attacks and strokes. It is also now understood that B-12 deficiency is one of several factors that together often cause dementia (such as Alzheimer’s disease) in older people. Since cooking destroys vitamin B-12, and since older people have trouble absorbing it anyway, experts now recommend that adults take a 1 mg (1,000 micrograms) tablet of vitamin B-12 daily. This greatly overcomes the difficulty older people have in absorbing it. Even at this dosage, vitamin B-12 is harmless, inexpensive, and obtainable without a prescription.”
{Science News – vol. 153 #7:105, 1998, in Health Gazette, Apr. 1998}

The same author writes the following concerning “Micowave Cooking in Plastic Containers

“Do not heat food containing fat in a microwave using plastic containers because the combination of fat, high heat and plastics releases dioxins and other toxins into the food and ultimately into your cells. Dioxins are carcinogens and highly toxic.

After researchers studied several commercial plastic containers, compounds such as methylbenzene, ethylbenzene, 1-octene, xylene, styrene and 1,4-dichlorobenzene were found in all of them. Also, the increased output power of modern microwave ovens can cause overheating.

Although cooking of raw foods in a microwave targets an acceptable end product for touch, taste and smell, the process does not address the microbiological safety of the cooked food. Microwave ovens from various commercial suppliers were used to cook naturally contaminated whole raw broiler and roaster chickens according to manufacturers’ instructions. Many of the roasters yielded visible Listeria bacteria after microwave cooking.
{Sources: Food Additive Contamination, June 2002; Emergency Medicine, (Fremantle) June 2001, Journal of Food Protection, Nov. 1998. “Nutrition Hints,” from Betty Kamen, PhD and Dr. Michael Rosenbaum, MD, Hint #870, June 2002}

One of the ways to decrease exposure to harmful chemicals, and all the scientists agree, is don’t microwave in plastic.
{Lindsey Berkson, author of the book “Hormone Deception, how everyday foods and products are disrupting your hormones, and how to protect yourself and your family,” on “People’s Pharmacy” PBS Radio program, September 27, 2003}”

Can you believe that so many cavalierly microwave (heat up) their foods and beverages in plastic containers?! As though plastic doesn’t melt or get so hot that it allows for migration of petroleum-based derivatives into the food or beverage contents???

We think that we have provided enough highly credible research for anyone reading this to dispose of their microwave. If you choose to keep it in operation, it may very well significantly contribute to the degradation of your health at the cellular level, tissue level, organ level as well as systemically.

We strongly believe that the rapid increase of so much chronic degenerative disease can be partially attributed to the frequent use of these DANGEROUS devices. They have become so ubiquitous that their detrimental health effects are surely being felt far and wide. The problem – as always – is that the scientific community has avoided this area of research like the plague. Undertaking such research studies would be the best way to demonstrate the direct correlation between microwave use and various medical makers and health stats.

Whereas GreenMedInfo has provided these excellent research studies, the dearth of such scientific research is clearly due to the many and diverse vested interests who ensure that few will likely ever be undertaken … to the great detriment of both individual and collective health.

In the meantime, you, the cook, and you, the eater, can easily avoid the radiation from the device, as well as the negative consequences of eating microwaved food. We have managed to do so for well over 25 years with virtually no inconvenience. However, we’re not at all shy about asking the waitress to ensure that none of our food will be nuked on that rare occasion that we find ourselves at a restaurant.

You can do the same, if you believe what you’ve read here today.

With every good wish,
The Health Coach


Author’s Note:
You know, we dealt very little with the EMR and microwave effects in the ambient living environment when these little beasts are turned on and humming. This is likewise a HUGE issue which poses it’s own list of serious health concerns as presented by many researchers.
How many times have you read that those with pacemakers should not be around microwaves? Given what most of us now know about electro-pollution and the many long term effects of stray voltage, ‘normal’ emr output and 2-way emr overload, do we really need to go there?
For those uninitiated into this realm, we will take this up in our next health blog on microwave ovens.

Special Warning to those who nuke water:
Water, by it’s very nature, is extremely impressionable. It possesses different qualities, some of which are far too subtle to measure, but nevertheless important for health reasons.
When water is microwaved, it is profoundly and fundamentally altered on an energetic level which produces chaos in its energy field. How will this translate when nuked tea and coffee water is regularly drank over years? We don’t know. And that’s the problem, we just don’t know.
You might peruse the following article written by our good friends at Natural Society for some additional understanding.
The Dangerous Truth Behind Microwaves (Updated)

Telling Personal Vignette:
The Health Coach once worked for a company in Atlanta, GA in the mid-90s. For almost two straight years the owner of the firm was seen to microwave his lunch (a different frozen dinner every day) every afternoon, without exception. Immediately after eating the ‘meal’, he would go into a coughing fit, each and every day, without exception. Some of us would sit there within earshot listening to the terrible discomfort which he suffered, as endless coughing sounds could be heard through his office door. This happened 5 days a week and gave us much to ponder about what might be causing such an uncontrollable fit of coughing.
Needless to say, those of us who were health conscious never went near that microwave. He did pass away shortly thereafter as a result of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic ailments.

      This article is spot on. Unfortunately most people will not take any notice of it and will continue to eat microwaved food. :roll:


    • duncombemu

      We use ours as a spare cupboard. I cut the power cord off it years ago. :cool:

    • Decode the World

      Micorwaves make good Faraday cages to store electronics in event of an EMP.

      • AllRoadsLead2NWO

        Well- you may want to store yourself in there since the human body runs on electricity.

    • JimmyBitch

      During the holidays I intentionally microwave items for the people who I do not like. “Eat more warmed chestnuts.” I tell them.

      “Would you like your cocoa warmed?” I ask.

      Chuckle, chuckle.

      “Feeling ill? Let me warm this cloth for you in the microwave.”

    • Eggzactly

      They used to sell a microwave radiation detectors at radio shack years ago to check leakage around your oven when its on. They weren’t that expensive either. If you still use a microwave it might not be a bad idea to get one.

    • Syco

      Crack heads, the microwave might have been hit or miss 30 years ago… paranoid git. You soak up more radiation going for a walk on a sunny day.

      • Warren

        A person incurs far more exposure to EM radiation from modern communications equipment than from a modern microwave oven. Whereas microwave ovens are well sealed from leakage of EMR, wireless phones and cell phones and WiFi and bluetooth are all intentional radiators at about the same frequencies as microwave ovens.

      • Warren

        Let’s put some numbers behind my assertion above. Let’s compare microwave oven leakage to using a cell phone. I just did a bit of research and used a calculator.

        In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates microwave oven leakage. Their regs say that the leakiest legal oven can leak 5mW/cm^2 at a distance of 5cm. We assume the inverse square law applies at different distances.

        A typical cell phone has about 500mW average transmit power and is using an omnidirectional antenna that is 50% efficient.

        Let’s see how much power is being absorbed by a human head at reasonable distances from a cell phone and a microwave oven.

        In the cell phone case, the working distance is essentially zero, with the phone held against the head. Thus 50% of the output power is absorbed by the head. That’s
        500mW X 50% X 50% =125mW

        In the case of the leakiest possible microwave oven, a typical working distance might be 1/2 meter from it. Power density will of course change with distance from it. I measured my head which is about 15cm by 23cm, or 345cm^2 as viewed from the front. The power absorbed by such a head would be:
        5mW/cm^2 X (5cm/50cm)^2 X 345cm^2 = 17.25mW

        At typical working distances, how much more EM radiation is a head absorbing from a cell phone than from a worst-case microwave oven?
        125mW/17.25mW = 7.25
        A person is exposed to over 7 times as much radiation using a cell phone as working near a worst-case leaking microwave oven.

        FDA regs for microwave ovens:
        Basis of cell phone calculations:

    • Vandermeer1

      Interesting that these “studies” are not available to the public… I’ll grant that microwaving might alter the nutritional value of some foods, but the claims in this article are just outrageous and unsupported. You are in MUCH greater danger eating all the chemicals in the “convenience foods” that are microwaved.. If you are looking for cancer causes, I’d start there…

    • JimmyBitch

      What happens if all the protected surrounding is removed from a microwave, then the microwave is set outside then an extension cord run to it and turned on.

      • AllRoadsLead2NWO

        The entire universe would collapse in upon itself. Please don’t do it jimmy, please, lol.

    • poetopoet

      In England a school had 100 children water their plants with microwaved water and another plant with tap water, both at room temperature, all plants watered with microwaved water died.

      • Warren

        That has been rumoured for years but more controlled experiments have almost all failed to duplicate the result. I gag at using snopes as a reference, but here’s one example:

        • Shorty

          Snopes is a liberal owned and controlled propaganda site, must like wikipedia … they have an agenda.

          • AllRoadsLead2NWO

            just like everyone else- WashingtonPost. Your liberal ass licker nazi socialist Jeff Bezos that owns your amazon owns it. Get rich, buy a media outlet and brainwash the sheeple with your own twisted agenda- What do you expect in a place where absolutely everyone and everything and every law or policy is for sale to the highest bidding individual, entity or country.

      • Pocket Rocket

        Why would you need to microwave water to water a plant doofus

        • The Clucker

          You wouldn’t. It was an experiment.

        • urdivine

          What is this NEED you have to personally attack people????

    • David Mushbraine

      Put ramen noodle in microwave and watch spin round an round with face to window.

    • Cleareyes

      You can’t beat the convenience, and speed of a microwave! Quick scrambled eggs? Put a unbroken raw egg in microwave for 3 mins on high, and Walla!

    • Don Quixote

      I know lots of people that have been using microwaves since the 70s and they’re still alive.

      • hailthechief

        I have known and can recall 6 people that smoked several cigars per day or at least a pack of cigarettes for 50-70 years and each lived to be over 80 years old. Two made it into their late 90′s. But I remember when my 95 year old great-grandpa died at 93, it was because of cancer, hmmm go figure. I have known 3 people personally die from cancer that never smoked and they were all under 60. So, is there really a causation between anything and cancer?

        • AllRoadsLead2NWO

          exactly- you die when you are supposed to die- when your battery wears out and the electricity stops in your body.

    • tomtomz

      The article is accurate but poorly written. Heating water is also problematic as it separates into different molecular configurations when heated. It has been my guesstimation that for the beginnings of the microwave ovens being present in every home (early 70′s), that the food cooked in them has been doing a number on our health by denaturing the food value of everything heated in them and greatly contributing to the obesity problem in the US. Fast food outlets haven’t helped, eating junk food from the grocery store hasn’t helped, using vegetable oils (soy and corn) hasn’t helped either. My grandparents and back, never had a food related health problem, as they hunted or raised their own animals and grew their own vegetables and grain crops…. lol… you know “down on the farm”…. as we have evolved, we needed to move to the cities for better work…. the new markets created for this… safely moving food to the cities has lead to all sorts of atrocities in the name of sending ??? safe food to the market place in a pre-packaged, ready to use form. Fresh is best, learn to cook. Also, stay away from the artificial sweeteners… cane sugar, maple syrup, honey, beet sugar… in most cases are the real thing, wild honey is probably the healthiest (cane sugar, beet sugar, maple syrup start out the same way, a watery liquid that is reduced into a solid or syrup). Read the labels, do your homework, it is easy to eat healthy.

    • Pink Slime

      The WAP organization says you should throw your microwave oven out. I did and hit the postman on the head. So it is deadly!

    • Cleareyes

      But, you love it!


      I hope you wake up some morning, and realize everything you know is wrong. Virtually nothing in this article is correct. :razz:

    • officer420

      My friend gave himself a home vasectomy by sitting on the microwave everyday..

    • AllRoadsLead2NWO

      Well any good brainwashed christian will tell you that microwave ovens let the devil loose in your house. All christians that use microwave ovens are possessed by the devil. Lest ye forgot ‘ 11) Thou shalt not use microwave ovens.’ – signed your vain, jealous, favorite playing, egyptian baby killer -hebrew god.

    • An Observer

      Is it the 1950s again? Because this fear mongering about microwaves and radiation was big back then too.

      I have a neighbor who still insists that “soon” people are going to start dying from having their insides cooked from the hot food from a microwave.

      Of course hes also been saying “soon” since the microwave first came out. But you know.

      I’m not defending them too much though. I dont use one, but only because they suck. Nothing comes out good from a microwave, unless you like soggy rubbery crap.
