HealthyHolisticLiving writes in Facts About Microwave Ovens That Will Make You Never Want To Use One Again

The blood samples from test subjects who had consumed microwaved foods demonstrated decreased lymphocytes (white blood cells) and decreased haemoglobin and cholesterol values, combined with increased luminescence or energy of luminescent bacteria, explained here.

Did the described research really happen and if so has it been successfully replicated?

  • The study in question was supposedly conducted by Swiss researchers Hertel and Blanc. metabunk.org/debunked-the-dangers-of-microwave-ovens.t1288 says that their work was never published. – Nate Eldredge Aug 17 '16 at 14:31

    I was going to call this nonsense, then I got to the point where they claimed luminescent bacteria found in blood. Blood does not shine in the dark! – John Dvorak Aug 17 '16 at 14:59

    @JanDvorak : The claim sounds like a lay persons reading of "in a study they put luminescent bacteria into the blood and the luminenscence was increased in cases of microwaved food". – Christian Aug 17 '16 at 15:17
  • @NateEldredge: Is that an answer? – Oddthinking Aug 17 '16 at 19:31
  • @Oddthinking: No, it doesn't address whether the research happened nor whether it has been replicated. But I thought it might be a helpful start for someone else to investigate. – Nate Eldredge Aug 17 '16 at 21:29
