    There is strong evidence that those vibrations, when amplified, cause cancer, brain damage and ingrown toenails. Big Guitar has been suppressing this shocking truth for years.

    Why do you think Moldovia banned the electric guitar in 1956?

    There was a definite point in my life when I knew that the scholarly/research path was for me. As sort of an introduction to that life, I read a bunch of meta-scholarly essays. One that went ding in my small head discussed how a scholar knowingly or intuitively assesses the merit of a scholarly source by such things as reputation of the author, the author's family tree of one's teacher's teacher's teacher's etc., the reputation of the journal or book publisher.

    When I started the march to tenure, I went to some workshops, primarily so that I could learn how reviewers will judge the quality of my work. Even if a reviewer knows nothing about, say, music and mathematics, a committee member has other ways of knowing how the work has merit in the field.

    It's because of mindsets like this that something like the University of Phoenix sets off alarms in the hiring process.

    Infrared radiation is what that toaster oven would use... It's on the electromagnetic spectrum. What's the difference really between heating your food with radio or infrared?

    Here's the rule I try and live by.

    You don't understand the science, you don't get an opinion on it either way.
    Either read up or shut up.

    Not aimed at members on here - just people in general.

    Hmmmm, yes - but ever since I got my microwave fireplace, I can spend all night in front of it in only 14 minutes.

    Yup, all members here - unlike people in general - are entitled to an opinion whether or not they know anything on the topic discussed.:D;)

    I prefer to cook fish and vegetables in the microwave, because you don't have to use as much water. You don't throw away the good things with the bathwater = more nutritions & good things = better food + it tastes better!

    Don't believe all the things that "alternate new agers" are trying to sell you; they're just like McDonald's: believing in their product, and trying to make a buck.

    There's no science behind it, just the usual, "the refridgerator is Evil, it will give you Cancer!", nonsense.

    Unsure if that was intended as some kind of shot at me or not and not really understanding the reference to University of Arizona. But in any case if a site posts an article bashing the use of microwaves but is also peddling voodoo like herbals and cleanses the article is probably bunk. Would be like finding an anti Gibson post on this forum.

    Yep, agenda driven website. Interneets are great places to spread misinformation.

    I didn't read it that way. The University of Phoenix always seemed to me to be a diploma mill and not very reputable. Similar to the Herbal and Cleanses sites. "The University for the Real World" seems like a 2am Infomercial than some place I'd spend money to learn. I don't think the University of Phoenix is associated with the University of Arizona.

    Deckard, Look up University of Phoenix (not University of Arizona).

    Hmmmmm, a website touting the importance of a natural lifestyle and the dangers of being around radiation-emitting manmade sources...

    all posted by computer via the Internet?

    Shouldn't the article say something more along the lines of ...

    OH MY GOD!!!! DON'T LOOK AT THIS!!!! GET AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN--YOUR EYES WILL EXPLODE AND FLAMES ERUPT OUT OF THEIR EMPTY, BLACKENED SOCKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Part of the problem is all the actual scientific research are behind paywalls and without paying the site, not accessible to the population as a whole. But any screwball with $20 and an agenda can set up a site and say anything they want. The debunking sites help when they're known. I'd never heard of the one posted above.
