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....

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.

kids cuisine, etc.) .. they have plastic containers and people all over
the country are using them. Wonder what THAT is doing to folks, eh??
