      the light.

      A study at the U of Utah using water found the microwaved water decreased seeds ability to germinate.  Interesting.

      I think we all new it was too good to be healthy

        on microwaves. has more on this and lots of other intriguing stuff.

        Maybe they're dangerous, maybe they're not. But there's far too much money to be made selling them (and selling microwavable food) for me to be convinced the research has been done properly. I ditched mine some time ago.

        Did they do any kind of chemical analysis of the water?  If so, what did they find?  Otherwise all we have is a black box effect.  

        This gets a little too close to "faith healing" for my taste.  

        I'd like to see the specific details of their methodology, since this is something that could easily be replicated by anyone in their own kitchen.
