I really believe the microwave is bad. Whether it is the acceleration of the heat process, the radiation, or the plastic used in it. It just doesn't seem like it would be good to use. (In a natural and pure kinda way)

here is what Dr. Andrew Weil says about microwaves.....

"While microwave ovens are a great convenience, you do have to be aware of potential dangers. Don't heat foods in plastic containers or covered by plastic wrap: microwaving can drive plastic molecules into your food.

I advise using only glass or ceramic containers in them and only waxed paper or a paper towel to cover foods that you are heating. I don't cook anything in the microwave. Instead, I use it only for defrosting or rapid reheating of leftovers."

If you want to see the microwaved water experiment done on plants in soil check out

I have posted on my blog about the microwave experiment, worth taking a look.

In the UK there is a make of tampons etc called Nutri care that I good.

The cotton industry is terrible. Hemp is a much better product needs no chemicals to grow it. If you look back in history it was all about power and wealth why cotton did so well and hemp production was squashed.

I think lots of very nasty illnesses are caused by using non organic cotton in areas of the body were the skin is very sensitive.

I am also very interested in water, are a very good water filter.

About the microwave, I don't argue that it is bad, but in the follow up of the experiment they admitt the water was boiled in a plastic cup(plastic, also bad). So leaching plastic could play a part. Also it was not a double blind experiment, so she knew which was which when watering them. Also she was wanting the microwaved ones to do poorly, so it is possible that her thoughts toward each plant had an effect as well. Again, not arguing that the microwave is bad, just saying there is more to be considered with that experiment.

I get toilet paper and paper towels made from 100% recycled paper. They cost a litttle more but not too much.

Something I haven't researched, but have been thinking about lately, is tampons, pads, and liners. Does anybody know of any that are eco-friendly?

Here are some reasons why organic cotton production is important to the long-term health of the planet.

Cotton uses approximately 25% of the world's insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides (including herbicides, insecticides, and defoliants.).

Fifty-five million pounds of pesticides were sprayed on the 12.8 million acres of conventional cotton grown in the U.S. in 2003 (4.3 pounds/ acre), ranking cotton third behind corn and soybeans in total amount of pesticides sprayed. (USDA)

Over 2.03 billion pounds of synthetic fertilizers were applied to conventional cotton in 2000 (142 pounds/acre), making cotton the fourth most heavily fertilized crop behind corn, winter wheat, and soybeans. (USDA)

The Environmental Protection Agency considers seven of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton in 2000 in the United States as "possible," "likely," "probable," or "known" human carcinogens (acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos, and trifluralin). (EPA)

Cotton pesticides can be extremely hazardous, particularly when poverty prevents users from taking necessary precautions.
At just eight years old, Modachirou Inoussa already helped his parents in the cotton fields, and 29 July 2000 started as a day like many others. Modachirou had worked hard and ran back to the house feeling thirsty. Finding no drink, he set off to search for his parents. On his way, Modachirou found an empty container, and scooped up some water to drink from a ditch. That evening he did not return home. A village search found his body next to the empty Callisulfan bottle innocently used to quench his thirst(More about this at

That is what the experiment shows, how a plant feed on microwaved water dies after a short time. It is fine on boiled water.

yeah that microwave is awful, i didn't check the link, but i am familiar with the terrible effects of it. I saw an experiment with a plant and they used microwave water to feed one and regular water for the other. the one with the microwave water died a few weeks later.....

you really shouldn't use it ever, especially not to cook food! i mostly use it to heat up coffee or leftovers, i know that is still bad, but it is a habit that needs to be broken. if you use it, make sure to always evacuate the area from its strong radiation.....

thanks for spreading the word ;-)

If you use a micro wave you might like to look at this experiment:-

Another good link.

The same applies to toilet tissue/roll. Best to buy organic, not the coloured stuff, that's not good at all.
