You should never microwave filtered or distilled water it is far more likely to superheat than non filtered which basicly means it will be above boiling point with no visible bubbling.

I've read a few things about this searching google for exploding water should shed more light.

It looks like she may have overwatered with the microwave water. Its pots soil looked much more damp.

um...doesnt it look like the day seven and day nine pics for the microwave ones are cut off at the top. Im not sure i can believe this, but i could be wrong...

sorry, i forgot about this...but u also have to consider the variable...
she might have used to much water on one, not enought on one, might have heat the one thing of water to a diff temp, or have not heated them to the same amount every day, she could have different potting soil...theres tons of things, so there r some other reasons i dont trust this fully. lol someone should try it.

Interesting experiment, though I would be more comfortable with the results if she used more than one plant for each type water.

One plant there are too many variable that can happen. In her experiment it could have been something as simple as a bad clipping which was destined to die from the beginning.

In high school I did an expreriment with plants that ended up at the state science fair, had at least 20 plants for each group to make sure everything went right.

A grade school girls science experiment is hardly factual science. Sorry but there can be so many factors to why the plant with microwaved water turned out different.

This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen on Rense. In fact all the articles about aliens, underground bases and little green men are more credible then showing a picture of a wilted plant saying microwaved water caused it. Anyone that has the most basic information on horticulture knows that there could be several absolutely basic reasons why a plant does not turn out well. In fact when you are trying to get any kind of plant growing it's not even guaranteed to live at all, even under the best possible conditions.

Renese is really reaching for articles these days it seems.

Before you all go nuts, test it yourself... as umbrax suggested

You might be suprised at the results.
I used to work in a greenhouse during the winter/spring, and was always amazed that two plants right next to each other, from the same seeds, same placement, same wind...could look so different... and funny enough, geraniums were my specialty. I would always get to take the sickly ones home, and they always perked right up, when planted outside.

If this experiment is tested another 50 times, and the results say microwaved water is worse, I would worry... otherwise, it is not an accurate test yet...
coulda been anything that caused the difference.

Container is a consideration in testing, stick to pyrex.

I am interested in the bizarre qualities of water (tension, cohesion, chemical adjustment etc)...
but a school science project doesn't quite prove it to me yet

I'm putting this to the test as soon as possible. Maybe if we all do it, we can come back here and compare notes?
Also maybe post the pictures!

Lets find out for ourselves!

I think this would be an excellent project for the scholars on the Research Forum.

Maybe 5 or so members can grow 3 plants each making sure to use the scientific method.
Pyrex should be for microwaving the water to be sure the water is not being contaminated by the container.

Members who want to get the scholar title and have the time to do this and a camera should U2U ADVISOR and try to get this thing going.

Great idea, Umbrax. I want to be part of it so i will u2u.

Thank you very much.

You all realize that there is nothing really all that harmfull about a microwave as far as "radiation" is concerned? Right? Microwaves use whats called a magnotron to generate massive radio waves inside the oven that cause water molecules to vibrate and heat up.

I guess some plants do not like water from the microwave oven.



watch out for

those one line responses.

they're comming to get you

ther are so many one line responses in this thread. oh the humanity. what will the mods do. won't some one please think of the mods

one liners, and off topic posts too..at least one..

Another question would be..when does the water revert to it's "normal" state?
I ask this, because lots of cities use the same water over and over, through water treatment plants...Meaning, all water in those systems, will eventually contain Microwaved water..then what?


It's springtime here in the US..A good time to test this theory..
I'd like to join in..U2U me if a research project gets going..

Dose anyone want to do a project with me. any one interested U2U me.
I think 5 or 6 people will do.

to do the test correctly you would need to:

1 make sure the ph of the water is the same
2 make sure the soil is the same
3 make sure plants get same ammount of sunlight
etc.

you have to have i dentical condition except the water and you need a control plant

otherwise you risk contamination of your results

Thats really interesting. If a bunch of ATSers replicated the experiment, we might be one to something.

Here is a paranormal workbook/pamphlet that I made for things similar to this.

Only running one test with one plant of each type, and no controls, on a non-credible source makes me go "hmmm" about this one. They could be watering it with battery acid or not at all for all we know. Or it could just be some bad seeds.

Even though I'm suspicious about the safety of microwaves, I'm not buying this.

I thought microwave damage had something to do with "free radicals" distorting cellular structure.

I'd like to get in on this one. We have a plant store and there are all kinds of seedlings I need to start. I have a pack of Leonotis Leonurus right here in front of me, they normally grow pretty fast. Fast growers should show results faster. Geraniums would be a great choice, but we don't grow them.
U2U me if you want me in, I'd love to help!

Wow, I can't believe this is on here, I thought everyone knew that microwaved food isn't that great for you...

When you put food/liquid in the microwave, it heats the said food by shaking the particles through the use of radiation waves, in other words, you are making nuclear food.

Some people say that level of radiation you're putting in the food is so negligible that it doesn't have any effect on your health, yeah, well the "authorities" also say that coke is good for you and that we need to fight those pesky iraqi's, in other words, they say what they are told to say because that is what they get paid for.


Big suprise there...

Whilst I am no authority on health and nutrition, and the benefits of nuclear food, I personally believe that eating all these chemicals and radiated foods will add up to have a negative effect on your health in the long run.

It is a known fact that even if the radiated food isn't actually causing you cancer, microwaving food kills a lot of the nutritious benefits of whatever you are eating, for example, if you microwave broccoli, the shaking of the particles destroys a lot of the good bacteria in the food, as well as whatever vitamins and antioxidants were in there which were beneficial to your health.

Not to mention that most foods that are designed to be cooked in the mircowave are made of absolute rubbish and chemical rot anyway.


I know it costs more, but if you are seriously concerned about your health and the chemicals you may be eating, eat organic food. It really is better for you.
