You are not alone (although you may feel you are - you aren't!). If nobody else you know in the entire world seems that they are avoiding a microwave, there really are people out there who are on this bus with us. According to the available facts and figures out there, about 90% of American homes own a microwave. Do you know what this means? It means that a whole 10% of people (or more - maybe some have them in their homes and don't use them) are NOT using a microwave.
That's right. We can't all be cool, you know!
Well, here's a few others who are outspoken about their NON-microwave use.
1. Vani, a.k.a. Food Babe. Here is her article and advice on the subject: Why It's Time To Throw Out Your Microwave
2. Stephanie at Keeper of the Home. Here is her article: The Microwave: Why You Should Avoid It and Other Options
3. Katie at Wellness Mama. Check this one out, too: Not Using A Microwave
4. Dr. Mercola! Microwave Hazards
There are more, but these are some people who are outspoken about avoiding their use.
If you're inclined to the science side of things, I'm going to share a video with you about how the engineering behind the radiation box. To be sure, it is a creative thing...it's just not something I want to use to heat up or cook my food. As you watch, actively think about the wild contrast between heating something up traditionally via convection.
Think about it. Doesn't really remind me of back to nature, cooking over an open flame. I guess that whole metal thing with the ball of electrons shooting out of it kind of gives it away...
Peace, love, and welcome to the cool peeps club,
