The Microscopic Dangers of Microwaves
Microwaves have become an inherit appliance in every household. But just how dangerous are they? New studies have shown that microwaves are capable of causing mutations. 
Microwaves work by passing electromagnetic rays through the substance being heated. The waves cause the vibration of the atoms at a molecular level, causing heat in the form of friction. This unnatural form of heating has been known to change the structure of DNA, causing mutations in the polypeptide chains that join to form proteins. 
In a study carried out by the Western Australia Science Institute, tests were carried out on Lachryma papaveris plants. The results revealed that germination rates of seeds that had been exposed to microwaves were an alarming 70% lower than those that did not. 
In addition to damaging organic substances, microwaves can also denature the enzymes present in fruits and vegetables. 
Enzymes are used by organisms to catalyze chemical reactions. Without them, our bodies will fail to function. They have a specific shape in which the reactants fit in. Microwaves change the structure of the enzymes in our food so that they can no longer catalyze metabolic reactions.
It is obvious that microwaves have adverse effects on our health. The real question is: why haven’t governments done more to ban such dangerous apparatus invading our homes?
