In their book Life Extension, Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw say that the use of a microwave oven is preferable to conventional heating modalities since the microwave will not destroy nutrients as convention heating will. However, Science News
(02/14/98) reports that this is not the case with
respect to vitamin B12. The reported study showed that a microwave destroyed as much B12 in milk in 6 minutes as conventional heat did in 25 minutes.

The short article also points out that B12 is one of the B vitamins that helps to reduce the levels of harmful homocysteine in the body.
