Microwave oven produces microwaves that can severely harm the cell wall of foods. Many health studies indicate that foods cooked in a Microwave Oven lose lots of important nutrients.

Many doctors believe that there is a sharp increase of childhood cancers due to the exposure caused by electromagnetic waves.

When you heat food in an oven, the chemical components polymers, paper, and paperboard products enter into the food, which can make it unhealthy and unsafe to use.

Yes , .It do not effect the food which are cooked in microwave and the taste is good .I hoped since I am eating food cooked in the microwave since I'm young. When I was a kid our family and our microwave first, it was a moment in technological advancement in our house. He does the cooking, and heating things faster and easier than ever. At the time, the microwave was a big monster heavy compared to microwave ovens space-efficient today.

I would also say Yes they are fairly safe.But you should be aware that exposure to microwave radiation for extended periods may well cause certain cancers to occur. They may also cause cataracts, birth defects and other serious health problems including nervous system damage, headaches, and pacemaker interference.

The unique effects microwaves have on food appear not to be altogether healthy. One study dating back to the 70s revealed that microwave cooking deformed the cellular structure within vegetables in a way not seen with conventional heating. Other research, published in the Lancet, found that the microwaving of milk led to structural changes in the proteins that might well pose hazards for the body. Some scientists have suggested that one particular protein formed in this way (D-proline) is toxic to the nervous system, kidneys and liver.

In 1989, Swiss research revealed that consuming food thawed and/or cooked in a microwave oven could cause undesirable changes in blood chemistry. Two notable effects were a reduction in the level of the blood pigment haemoglobin (predisposing to anaemia) and an increase in the overall number of immune cells in the bloodstream (generally taken to be a sign of stress, infection or inflammation in the body). Also, exposing light-emitting (luminescent) bacteria to blood drawn after the consumption of microwaved food caused them to glow more brightly. The suggestion is that microwaves may lead to unnatural energetic changes in food that could pass to those who eat it.
