My mother has been on a diet of microwaved food for the past 15 years or so. It isn’t that the food is bad food to begin with. She has lovely meals made up for her with food bought from her local farmers markets. But when she comes home at night she use to heat it up in the microwave for dinner–how convienient, right? She also heated her water for tea and coffee etc in the microwave. After about 15 years of this she came down with pancreatic cancer. Granted there are other factors at play as well, but I don’t think this is a coincidence. The pancreas, after all is all about enzymes.
