There are a lot of myths and misconceptions surrounding microwave cooking.

The microwaves are not like nuclear radiation which is a higher frequency. They do not break atoms and molecules apart.

All cooking methods destroy enzymes which cannot take heat over 125 degrees F for more than a few minutes. All cooking methods reduce the amount of vitamins. Steaming vegetables retains the most vitamins. Microwaving with adding little or no water is comparable to steaming.

Because of the shorting cooking times, microwaves keep more nutrients than other cooking methods.

The test of a science project student who watered plants with microwaved water compared to other water has been proven to be totally an invalid study.

You can not get radiation from eating microwaved food.

However, it is important not to use plastic wraps or dishes of any kind in the microwave because they can release toxins into food. Use glass or approved ceramic (made in USA for example should not have lead based colors or coatings). I like Corelle ware because it is thin,

Anti Aging Multivitamin Skin Support Review

This is a review of Innate Skin’s Women’s Anti-Aging Multivitamin for Skin Support

It is not easy to a review any kind of supplement based on one month of use.

At the time of this video I was just a few weeks from turning 65. I was given 2 bottles – a two month supply – from the company in exchange for a review. They did not give me any money.

But I give an honest review.

Since I was already taking supplements, I wasn’t deficient in any vitamins except possibly K2 which I’ll mention in this video.  I was not specifically taking supplements for skin.

What I did was look into all the supplements in the ingredient list and see what they were good for. Most of those had multi benefits, too many to mention them all. Of course there was less of each ingredient than if you were to buy each supplement individually (which would naturally cost more).
