Fantastic and amusing bit with the relationship example. Cheerio! Oh, but do let's settle all this about the microwave...

Do you have any scientific proof that microwaving food is hard on your liver?

I was just wondering where in the hierarchy of control systems within the body the limbic system is allocated? Is this the next highest priority after respiration system?

I'd like to know what proof you have to support your claims that microwaving food turns it into toxin. It seems to me that all of the latest scientific journals have refuted this. Sure it changes food, as does, steaming and boiling. Siting such theories as fact does not lend credibility to your article.

Can I show my wife this article so she won't give me a hard time when I go for too long of a ride? Great read, simple and enlightening. Two questions, not a fan of Ibuprofen? And, how do you feel about cryotherapy?
