And since our bodies are made up mostly of water…

Our thanks to Marshall Dudley of Knoxville, TN for sharing his granddaughter, Arielle Reynolds’, experiment with us. Both Arielle’s mother, Christina, and Grandpa have much to be proud of. Congratulations, Arielle, well done!

“Below is a sience fair project that my granddaughter did for 2006. In it she took filered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference.

There are so many conclusions to draw from this experiment, that we will let you make your own. The decision as to how to use and deal with your microwave is also entirely up to you, but this should give you something to help make your decisions.
