To microwave or not to microwave?
The great thing about science is that no one ever seems to agree

Well, it seemed interesting to us: a picture of two pot plants, one apparently fed purified water, the other given water that had been microwaved.

The former looked healthy and happy, with lots of green leaves bushing out while the latter was a dreary little stump.

The explanation ran that microwaved water 'deadened' the water and left the plants bereft of the necessities. But scientists are never happy: they like to argue. So there, on our Facebook page http://on.fb.me/TF132V, they go at it, remembering botany  lessons from school and biology lectures at uni.

See for yourself: Go to http://on.fb.me/TF132V - and tell us what you think!  We do LOVE an argument... a worthwhile one, at least.
