Is it possible for the phenomanal (spontanous combusion) to be caused 
by micro waves, or other "stray" waves, electromagnetic or radioactive 
waves.(From coffee beans?) Or as suggested by a friend of my as to 
being caused by the digestion of huge amounts of food(it releases 
energy). Or by the reasoning that excercise both uses up, and produces 
energy at the same time?
