My mum's got the kids at her school trying this experiment. I'll report back if/when they get any results.

I turfed my microwave years ago - I couldn't get over the feeling that it was doing bad things after I pissed my pants and forgot my name three times. Anyway, checkout this site for some interesting water studies:

After I read this thread on the 14th, I promptly microwaved up a gallon of H2O and started watering one of my geraniums with said water. and another identical geraniums with well water.

It's been 10 days and nada, zip, no difference.

Just thought I'd pass along my little experiment.

least you did an experiment, keep at it a few days more. i havnt tried it im auto - presuming MW water is dodgey. jus gona have to do it myself.

Hello all,

While microwave water does get hotter than boiled water (because of microscopic sized steam bubbles that get trapped throughout the water) .. I do wonder why the size of the two vases were different.

The microwave water's vase was half the size of the boiled water.

But Horrors of all Horrors .. hasn't the soil used for the microwave water's plant been stirred each time, while the soil for the boiled water plant has been left Oh so nicely undisturbed!

But we have to keep in mind too, that we can make a Crop Circle'd plant in the microwave!

I apologize if this has been discussed on this post previously but I wanted to offer it as a suggestion to anyone replicating this experiment and simply didn't have the time to read all the posts.

There have been countless experiments where people grow plants and direct different emeotional energy at the plants. Planst given positive emotional energy grow those receiving negative energy wither.

If this effect is true (and it has been repeated over and over) it is possible the original experiementer communicated her expectations that the micorwaved water was bad to that plant and it withered. yea I know, it sounds cooky but it's a potentially real phenomenon:

Secret Lives of Plants

So a couple of suggestions:


Use alot of plants to account for the significant variability in the viability of plants. certainly 10 or more if just etsting micro vs. filtered water.

And use BLIND water. Have some else label the waters 1, 2, etc. and place the identification in a sealed envelope until after the experiment so the person caring for the plants does not know which watyer they are applying to which plant.

Also, if not already suggested each plant should receive a measured amount of water.

I thought I'd give that a go. I've been doing it for 2 days, I only had one plant so its probably not quite the same, I've only used microwaved water and it looks perfectly green, I'm buying a digital camera in a few days so I may do an experiment again and take pics daily, I'll opst back soon anyway. And using what little knowledge I have of microwaves theres no way we really no of yet that microwaves would mess with the chemical formula or compostion of water.. But still theres lots we don't know. However if this is all true I'd be rather worried. It could end up being a cause of cancer or something.

I am an interior landscaper and do a lot of work with grow lights and such for my clients. I'll also do this experiment, but I assume under a 400w HID bulb that I can at least account for equal amounts of lighting. I'll post when I get the results, in fact, I'll just put it up on my site and everyone can take a gander there with pictures and detailed comments.

I'm very interested in this. It may be the end of my microwave.

Superheating and Microwave Ovens


I thought the only way to superheat water was to used distilled water? or is that what they used? It is the minerals and anomilies in the water that allow it to boil in the first place is it not? Please correct me if I'm wrong....
thanks

yeah, I think you are right. The demonstration used pure water, which I assume means distilled. But the original article about the injury sustained by the member of public (near the top of that page) said they used ordinary tap water, so based on conditions like the container and amount of disturbance I guess there is still a risk.

I've been praying a lot more about everything the last 7-10 years, and I can definitely tell you that 5-7 years ago I was just feeling a stronger and stronger aversion to the microwave. Only about a year ago I stopped even microwaving coffee and water. Now here's an interesting relevant investigation! Sweet! I may try it, but I'll have to get two identical pots and plants, etc.

Look at the pots the plants are in!~

The microwaved water pot has been stirred before every picture!

The boiled water pot has not been disturbed.

It's a phony experiment

Are my words invisible? I have posted my results a couple of times now. My microwaved water in a porcelin coffee cup plants are still doing fine. It is the plastic cup.

LOOK!!

6 plants.

2 with microwaved water in a plastic cup - dead.

2 with microwaved water in a coffee cup - healthy

2 with tap water - healthy


Each was watered the same amount with the water at room temperature. As suspected, the microwaved water in a plastic cup killed 2 plants that were sprouted about 3 inches tall.

Maybe I was get super veggies from the other 2 micowaved watered plants.

Enjoy

Good for you godservant,

I think folk here would rather argue than have the mystery solved.

I mentioned several times that the soil in the microwaved pots had been stirred - but they hate solutions and would rather go on saying, "Oh! Me! Oh! My!

good job!

Here's a little something....

When I heat water in the microwave here in Delaware -
(always in a ceramic mug)

- the filtered tap water does a sizzle thing and when I put coffee
or tea in it, it fizzles and sizzles and overflows.

- the bottled water doesn't sizzle and when I put the coffe or
tea in it, it does just fine.

The big 'joke' is that there are chemicals all over/in Delaware.
I think the microwave makes the chemicals worse.


Now as far as it being the plastic in the experiment that was posted ...
someone here talked about heating microwave dinners (healthy choice,
kids cuisine, etc.) .. they have plastic containers and people all over
the country are using them. Wonder what THAT is doing to folks, eh??

Several years ago I worked for a company who made equipment for the glass industry. We used to get literature from glass manufacturer's trade associations all of the time. This was about the time that Miller Brewing came out with the plastic beer bottle. There was an effort underway to promote that chemicals leaching from plastic containers caused everything from Gulf War Syndrome to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. There was never any proof given for this, it was supposed to be a talking point for industry members while talking with the media.

what the thread starter did not state(but did uncounsously/conscously by telling us that microwaves alter the for of whaterver element is subjected to microwaves) is that this plant was basically fed water that is NOT water. basically, unless you drink water from a microwave daily, you WILL die. contrary to the facts of fear this poster MAYBE tried/wanted to induce is reduntant. because...
basically he said he fed the plant with NON WATER for FIVE or FIVE+ whatever weeks with non-water.
of course it will die. this does'nt mean that because you want your coffee hot quick, it'll freakin kill you.
its just that it might not be 100% coffee/tea by the time you drink it.
and food has been described here as only 40% of its former self thru microwaving...
...which is why microwaved food tastes like leftovers heh?

because this dude failed to feed his plant water doesnt mean 1 microwaved glass of tea kills us all for eternity.

Well, duh.
If you took a physics electro course, you can know that microwaving any food isnt good. Its better to reheat with oven than a microwave.

I've been avoiding use of the microwave for years now except with boiling water quickly. Damn... But I'd much rather cook food (even Hot Pockets, which might not be food) for longer in the over or broiler than microwave it. It tastes better and seems safer.

The container used does matter- even if the water doesn't actually change, the microwave still might add chemicals outside of an ideal lab situation (such as glass or ceramic). In real life, your microwave macaroni won't come in a glass container. -cue evil laughter-

Obviously, anything you put in the microwave is going to have atoms scattering all over the place. Water does not have a definite form and it's filled with kinetic energy. So steam is created and you have a radiated water.
