Is a microwave harmful to food?

The debate about the dangers or benefits of food cooked or preheated in a microwave oven has been going on for decades, since when in 1946 American engineer Percy Spencer first noticed the ability of microwave radiation to heat food, and Raytheon patented the invention, starting one year later production of microwave ovens for the military.

Over the past almost 70 years, microwave ovens, as ordinary household appliances, have penetrated almost every home and office, although there is still no final verdict on their benefits or harms. Even despite the fact that in 2008 the World Health Organization issued a conclusion – “microwave ovens use radiation that does not adversely affect either humans or food”, disputes, as in the topic of GMOs, continue. We would like to convince you that the microwave should still be discarded.

Vegetarian Facts

-Approximately one quarter of the world’s population follows a vegetarian diet.

– Vegetarians live longer and get sick less often because they get more vitamins, minerals, fiber and unsaturated fats. It has been established that the diet of long-livers consists mainly of products of plant origin, primarily cereals, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and sometimes dairy products.

The diet of vegetarians is most consistent with the needs of the human body, contributes to the prevention of diseases and the achievement of active longevity. Continue reading

I want to lose weight

The topic of losing weight is, without exaggeration, one of the most popular topics in communication – both physical and virtual, and in all age groups. The inability of most people to observe moderation in food and to properly compose their own diet leads to a gradual (and sometimes quite fast) weight gain, which must be periodically “driven off”. Few manage to keep their weight at a constant level of a slim figure, and here heredity, family traditions in nutrition, own aesthetic views, lifestyle, and, of course, physical education play an important role. Unfortunately, some physical exercises cannot cope with the problem of excess weight, and it must be solved in conjunction with other measures.

There are a lot of recommendations on how to lose weight. You can “sew up” your mouth by sharply limiting the diet, as the great ballerina Maya Plisetskaya advised; you can completely stop eating for a while – the benefits of therapeutic fasting are undeniably proven. Continue reading
