It's "that time of the month" when my hormones are going into a giant blender, and my brain feels like the batter is getting constantly stirred around; emotions getting added in like swirls of food coloring in the mix   ugh ugh ugh

I nuked a spaghetti squash because I couldn't roast it and wait an hour for it to be done and got an allergic reaction 20 minutes after. Took my anti allergens and the tips of my eyelids where the eyelashes are are burning, burning - my eyes aren't though. And my nasal passages are all itchy. Going to stagger off to bed for an early morning nap because being alone in this house and recent loss of real-time friends has put my sleeping patterns all out of kilter.....day is night and night is day.....

I don't think there was a pesticide in the squash their rinds are very thick. Was the nuke-ing itelf (lowering immunity) that did this?

Seraffa,while I don't know the answer to your question....if you like, read about foods that have been
microwaved and maybe draw a conclusion.

If microwaves are generally as deadly as some people think, I don't know how most of the population is still alive! I know plenty of people who have died with cancer who never used a microwave in their entire lives. So I don't know whether we will ever know the truth about microwave ovens.

Seraffa, if I had gone through the stress you have been under for so long, I think I would likely be clawing my eyes out, to say nothing of what would be going on in the rest of my body. Have you cooked squash in your micro before and eaten it without problems?

Have you eaten spaghetti squash before? What else was in the meal with the squash, and was any of it "new" to your diet?

Chloe, thank you for taking the time to share these two sites.  It has been at least 5 years since we got rid of ours because of my suspicions.  I have never regretted doing it and found that using the stove can be almost as fast and you don't have that nagging worry/doubt in the back of your mind.

I sent this to all of my family and friends so that, as you say, can draw their own conclusions.

Blackened fish, steak, et cetera, to say nothing of veggies roasted until they began to turn black, or nearly black toast, or caramelized onions or eating avoids or even scientists who may have an agenda, are all a lot scarier to me than a microwave. I can roast or use convection in mine so I don't have to worry one way or another.

Yea, even sweet potatoes which are the most damaging of all when nuked but I last did that maybe....hmmm.....3 months ago when I first read about nuked food.

Ruthie my squash was simply cut open lengthwise to cook and had the salutory onion powder with a hint of olive oil on top for palatablilty.

Could it be the dried Wakame I bought yesterday, for my Swami, purported to have great weight loss befits as a seaweed? I'll try a bit now before my dinner to see if anything happens. "Product of Korea" it says.

Oh dear Lord, it was and here we go again...itching, burning, and the desire to eat a whole box of Ritz crackers as a result!!!!! And I'm fresh out of Deflect A. Just shoot me now.

Deep breath.....a fast and effective allergy neutralizer is a pinch of baking soda in water. Or dump
a box into a tub and take a bath in it.... I don't know about wakame being an allergic food, unless you're highly allergic to iodine....which is plentiful in all seaweeds.  Really sounds more plausible
than eating a nuked food.

Itchy skin is the result of histamine levels increasing near the surface of your skin. If you're allergic to iodine, your body will release immunoglobulin E antibodies after you ingest the supplement. IgE antibodies trigger white blood cells to produce histamine, a bodily chemical that protects against infection. Histamine causes your blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood flow, which leads to inflammation, irritation and itchiness. Itchy skin from an allergic reaction may cause the development of hives, eczema or general itching.

If you have quercetin in the house or bromelain, vitamin C.....any of those would be natural anti histamines.
Hoping you didn't eat more wakame before seeing this post...

I am violently allergic to iodine taken internally, but I don't have a single problem with painting it on my skin. The soda water treatment sounds wonderful. Wakame is a diamond for me, but I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole!

My son rarely microwaves but I’m a big offender.  It is fast & easy.  But maybe I’m sacrificing nutrients for time.  I need to make a consecrated effort to use my Flavor Wave oven more.
