I don't own a microwave because I don't believe that it is healthy. I have read studies about how it kills nutrients in food (even water.) Not to mention radiation or how unhealthy TV dinners are.
Who does not own a microwave, am I alone?
Who would be willing to go a month without using it for anything, and see if you feel healthier?

Haha do you already feel healthier?

Well, I never really use it anyways! I only ever use it for heating water or oatmeal. Haha. But we will see! Maybe going stovetop could be an extra step I need. ;)

If you dont want to use a micromave for health reasons i think you are taking it too far

There's no convincing evidence that microwaving food is bad for you. On the contrary there's some evidence to suggest that it could be the best way to cook vegetables - better even than steaming.

I own a microwave but I don't use it. You're right it's not healthy at all. I use the stove to cook my food. And I feel healthier.

We have one at home, but I rarely ever use it. Maybe once every few months.

I use my microwave allllll the time to thaw meat, warm up my daughters bottle and food so that its not too cold for her, steam veggies.. i love my microwave couldn't live without it lol :) i could if i had too but my daughter would be screaming forever if i had to heat her bottle by hot water.. way easier sticking it in there for 15 seconds shaking it up and giving it to her lol
