I've not a clue about any truth in this. It came from a relative who has taken to forwarding jokes. I do recall early days of recommended maintenance of microwaves. I'm not seeing any doctors soon to ask. What do you make of it? The content is below.
I tried to research the item below and all I found on snopes.com was this: http://www.snopes.com/science/microwave.asp
Seems to me that maybe the convenience of a microwave is too high a price to pay... please read...and make your own judgements....
Microwaved Water - See What It Does To Plants

Below is a science fair project that my granddaughter did for 2006. In it she took filtered 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.
PLANTS FED WITH MICROWAVED WATER DIED.
I have known for years that the problem with microwaved anything is Not the radiation people used to worry about. It's how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it. So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these "Safe" appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed them when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it's safe. Never mind then, keep using them. Ask your Doctor I am sure they will say it's safe too. Proof is in the pictures of living plants dying. Remember You are also Living. Take Care.

Ten Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven
From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific Clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven
sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:
1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term - permanent - brain damage by "shorting out" electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].
2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.
3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.
4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.
5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food are reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit,
or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.
6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.
8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.
9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.
10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.
The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. "brainwashing", has also been proven.
We're attempting to obtain copies of the 1970's Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perovspecifying their clinical experiments in this area.
