Old wives tale. It's microwave electromagnetic radiation, there's no half-life or lingering emissions. Been using one for 24 years (The same one!) with no problems.


Well that is your choice foxfeeder, I haven't had any problems either but have been watching this discussion for years, also the food doesn't taste right from a microwave.

Call me nuts but as I get older and more at risk for health issues, I prefer to eliminate anything that isn't necessary that could cause me health problems or make me feel shitty.

Ah, I have no familiarity with these, so I'd guess that's the issue.

I don't cook anything in the micro, I mostly just use it to reheat already cooked food. I definitely don't warm or eat anything microwaved in plastic. I use glass bowls, or a similar type plate. Even a paper plate, but definitely not plastic or Tupperware type bowls.

Here's a couple of reports on the Internet, but I didn't just get my information from there:

Interesting. I wouldn't ever cook a meal in a microwave oven (does anyone do this?), only warm things through, and I really doubt that any significant chemical changes would occur in that time, at least no more than from any other form of heating. But maybe there is something in this. undecided

I wouldn't worry about the radiation from microwave ovens, though. It's lower energy than visible light, non-ionising, and you aren't going to get much at all from a microwave, especially if you are standing more than a foot away while its doing its thing. And there's no way for it to 'hang around' in the food or make the food become radioactive.

I don't know, when they fist came out I tried some things because the convenience was so exciting.

I know some people buy frozen dinners like Lean Cuisine and cook them in the microwave. lipsrsealed lipsrsealed lipsrsealed lipsrsealed

Too many microwave posts to quote, but here are my views. Almost everybody I know has a microwave oven and uses it to complement a conventional gas or electric oven. Maybe the situation is different in the USA and Canada? I do have one friend who doesn't have a microwave oven - he regards them as "spawn of the devil" grin - but he is very much the exception rather than the rule. As a singleton, I have one or two microwave meals a week. The likes of Marks & Spencer and Waitrose produce some excellent chilled microwave meals. Whilst they aren't as good as wholesome home cooked food, they are still very nice and extremely convenient during a sometimes hectic week. smiley

I generally agree, but think that microwave ovens are good for cooking certain items, e.g. baked (jacket) potatoes. And my mum, who is a traditionalist, swears by them for hot sponge puddings, e.g. treacle pudding, chocolate pudding, jam pudding. smiley

I'm all for a healthy debate, but this guy is a fruit loop. Everything that comes out of a microwave is toxic and has no food value... doesn't matter whether you're eating vegetable soup or cardboard. rolleyes Look at his other videos... "Every cancer can be cured in weeks." Really. The internet is full of these guys. That other guy you linked to... Mercola... check out his website. He doesn't practice medicine, he sells supplements online.

Sorry Lils, I honestly don't know to what degree microwaves are harmful... probably less so than cell phones... and I'm certain there are truly legitimate concerns, but many of these guys are charlatans trying to either sell stuff or promote a political agenda.

I know there are lots of wackos on the net, I liked what he said in the first two minutes because it was (admittedly a bit strong)version of my thoughts, so I posted it. I haven't seen any of his other stuff.

A lot of people I respect and know personally have this view of microwaves. I guess after being around that way of thinking for 10 years or so now, I had lost sight of the fact that some people still use them so much.

They may be dangerous and maybe not, but instinctively I've never liked them, and there is enough noise to make me limit my use.

All you have to do is look around and see the proof of what food and the way we process and prepare it is doing to us. People are depressed and lethargic, sick etc. The people in life that I look to for information are people who are generally in my age group and above who have seen a lot in life and had experience, people who maintain a healthy weight, who's eyes shine and skin glows, people who smile a lot and enjoy a vibrant life, it is what I strive for.
