just a reminder that if you boil water in the microwave, you WILL get cancer, you fucking americans.
>>12337880Do Americans really irradiate their water instead of just heating it?
>>12337880seethingonly ionized radiation waves cause cancer.
but microwave radiation is non ionising? I didn't do physics at school so I'm not too sure how it all works
>>12337880>>12337880Americans don’t boil water in the microwave, that’s a Yuropoor myth. Even if we did microwaves don’t give you cancer, and they don’t contaminate water. Finally even if we did boil our water in the microwave and even if that did give you cancer, we all have cancer already from those fucking Dupont Teflon factories dumping chemical waste into our water back in the 80s.
>>12337880>Microwaving water causes cancerI thought Americans were supposed to be the ones with shit education.
>>12337888>Supermans most OP power: Super Disapointment
>>12337891Microwaves are literally lower in energy on the EM spectrum than visible light.
>>12337898>Americans don’t boil water in the microwaveI never have a reason to just boil water through any method as a thing on its own. But I definitely microwave instant noodles all the time and doing that involves the water the noodles are in boiling. And I'm definitely not the only guy in the US who microwaves instant noodles. That's a pretty fucking common thing to do.
>>12337921Literally the only thing I use microwaves for is reheating leftovers. I don’t really eat instant noodles, and when I do I either cook it in a pot for the packaged ones or boil water with my electric kettle and pour it in for the cups.
>>12337968>boil water with my electric kettle and pour it in for the cups.That's what you're supposed to do for the cup kind. The styrofoam isn't something you want to heat too much of because of the BPAs.I never get the cup kind though. I don't understand the appeal to them. Blocks of noodles from a pack are less of a hassle to grab a box of and don't have all those retarded dehydrated little decoration ingredients stuck inside.
>>12338725what is king rib?
>>12337914So are gamma rays... Lower not equal safer
>>12338770>gamma rays>lower in energy
>>12338770are you blind you retard
>>12337880so switzerland is the america of europe now?
>>12338747google it, there's a wiki article explaining
>>12338770>So are gamma rays
>>12337880It's only 3.6 roentgens though
>Stove top kettle>Pro: memories of nan>Con: hipster value, takes too long, chance of burning house down if you're inept>Electric Kettle>Pro: decent speed, the inept won't burn your house down>Con: slower than microwave, expensive if you're a dumbass, nan doesn't know how to use it>French Oven:>Pro: slightly faster, inept are experts>Con: usually heats the mug before the water, nan will not make christmas cookies if you make her tea in it, especially if it burns her hand.
Just have to remind everyone to throw a chopstick in the mug before heating if you’re going to do this. Superheated water in a smooth vessel can delay boiling until there is a catalyst and it will fuck your shit up. Look it up.
>>12338770>Lower not equal saferSafer is exactly what lower energy means you mongoloid.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation>Ionizing radiation (ionising radiation) is radiation that carries enough energy to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing them. Ionizing radiation is made up of energetic subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at high speeds (usually greater than 1% of the speed of light), and electromagnetic waves on the high-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum.>Gamma rays, X-rays, and the higher ultraviolet part of the electromagnetic spectrum are ionizing, whereas the lower ultraviolet part of the electromagnetic spectrum and all the spectrum below UV, including visible light (including nearly all types of laser light), infrared, microwaves, and radio waves are considered non-ionizing radiation.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_radiation_syndrome>Chronic radiation syndrome (CRS) is a constellation of health effects of radiation that occur after months or years of chronic exposure to high amounts. Chronic radiation syndrome develops with a speed and severity proportional to the radiation dose received, i.e., it is a deterministic effect of exposure to ionizing radiation, unlike radiation-induced cancer.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acute_radiation_syndrome>Acute radiation syndrome (ARS), also known as radiation sickness, is a collection of health effects due to exposure to high doses of ionizing radiation over a short period of time.The only risk microwaves carry is the same risk any heating method would carry. Microwaves make water molecules in food move around more AKA they heat it. That's it. You're not making the food become radioactive and your DNA isn't being damaged like it would if you were at Chernobyl or even just exposed to a few too many runs of an X-ray machine.
Throw your fucking microwave out. It's dangerous and almost useless.
>>12339288>alters the DNA so the body can't recognize itWhat is the DNA recognition part of our digestive system? What about stuff like salt or sugar which has no genetic material in it?
>>12339208Thanks Audrey! <=^}
>>12337880Needing boiling water in the kitchen is such a frequent occurrence that a kettle is basically an essential. Would put it on the same level as a spatula or a saucepan lid
>>12339307<3We were using distilled water to get that reaction but you know... safety first and all that.
>>12339123Clearly, OP is delusional.
>>12339288lol. Why the fuck would anyone do an "experiment" like that with only one test plant and one control plant? Also:>it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.I really hope they were just pretending to be that retarded.Should not even need to do this, but here, have a debunking:https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/boiling-point/
>>12339123>>12339355RBMK reactors do not expl-HUUUAAARRRGGHHHH
Microwaves cook things by heating the moisture inside of them. You dumb hitler.
>>12339288Even if you believed that one bit >Microwaved water effect on plants is somehow connected to effect on DNA in food, disregarding that the DNA in food is just protein when digested, broken down into the amino acids, for good reason.
>>12339123microwaves cannot emit radiation you are delusional, report to the infirmary
>>12337921I recently got lazy and started microwaving ramen instead of boiling it and using up a pot. But yuropoors are again ignorant as fuck. You could stick your nuts next to a microwave for a year and it wouldn't do anything to you. Pick up a book you soccer fags.
>>12339429I think microwaving instant noodles is more common than not. I've only ever seen anyone heat up instant noodles with a microwave, be it at friends' houses as a kid, or with different roommates at uni, or with what people do for lunch at work. It's the most stereotypical convenience food and microwaves are the most stereotypical convenience food heating method.
