  • Some nutrition experts are debunking the myth that microwaves remove nutrients from foods.  Here's what we know:
  • In a new study from Chung Buk National University in China, a clinical dietician has shown that boiling, frying and stir-frying decreases the nutrients in food
  • Microwaves have been shown to preserve nutrients
  • Major reasons microwaves can preserve nutrients:
  1. Microwaves use on average an air temperature of 350-degrees
  2. Microwaves use less time to heat food
  • Harvard Medical School Professor & Senior Physician at Brigham & Women's Hospital Dr. Anthony Komaroff has stated that microwaves are the least likely cooking method to damage nutrients:  "...the longer food cooks the more nutrients break down and microwave cooking takes less time."
  • A 2023 study shows that boiling has the highest negative effect on nutrients
  • Always liked the convenience of using a microwave; didn't know it was a nutrition hero.

  • A team of University of Cambridge experts are warning that AI "deadbots" & "ghostbots" could digitally haunt and fleece you from beyond the grave.  Here are some key facts:
  • It's called the digital afterlife industry and is composed of AI empowered deadbots, ghostbots  and griefbots
  • Key component:  AI chatbots trained to use the language patterns and personality traits of a dead relative or friend by using their digital footprint
  • This is a growing AI business line that enables survivors to talk to and text a deceased relative
  • University of Cambridge experts call it "high risk" that can cause psychological harm and digital haunting
  • They warn without effective safeguards, companies could advertise products to the user with a voice that sounds like a dead relative
  • An example: one user says the AI ghostbot of his grandmom is trying to sell him a Nintendo Switch
  • Unscrupulous companies & individuals could use the technology to digitally stalk people with the dead
  • Cambridge experts say the rights of both the dead and living users need to be protected and currently they are not.
