Microwave - Really THAT bad?!

Charles Yu | Aug 16, 2009 03:49 PM

Lately, I have been getting tons of write-ups and e-mail from health conscious friends regarding health hazards/cancer causing of microwaved food. Almost every article asked the reader to get rid of the appliances. Are all the claim justified? If indeed microwave oven alters the chemical composition of food and render them carcinogenic, why are hospitals and military worldwide still using them? Why do food companies still churning out microwavable frozen food? Conspiracy amongst the major players?
Would putting the food in glass container rather than plastic containers, before microwaving them, eliminate the concern?
