What do you think about cooking microwaves. Are there any health hazards?. Is it cancer causing? Should we not eat any microwaved foods.

I dont know if there's any proven claim that its cancerous but what I know is it gives food bad texture when you heat food in the microwave. Even rice! I just dont like heating food there. Try heating bread on the microwave. when it cools, youre like eating plastic or rubber!

one can cut down to an extent but i dont think one can stop. if u stop at home then too if u go out and ask for something hot, people donot heat everything on gas or stove, they use microwave only. every baker and confectioner have that because if he wanna serve something where will he go to hot it up if u ask it not to use the microwave to hot it u will be served the thing like that only and u will not enjoy the taste. u can make the use to a min. but u cannot fully stop it. i m eating so many things cooked in it but i m quite fit by GOD'S grace.

I only use my microwave for warming up leftovers and occasionally heating a frozen tv dinner. I cook all my foods on the stove or in the oven.I really dont ythink microwaves are dangerous or they wuldnt still be out there. I think they have improved them greatly over the years

with my microwave - my food is warm on the outside and cold on the inside. but what ive heard about microwaves is that they heat from the inside first?! and that is why some things may explode if you put them in too long. is this true? Ive been eating microwaved food all my life - in fact - if im lazy i just use the microwave to cook chicken, veges, eggs, etc. they haven't done me any harm but microwaved food normally doesn't taste as good as baked food.

I think it is okay to eat food prepared in the microwave but you should not cook with plastic containers - only glass - in the microwave. The plastics can leak out their chemicals in to your foods when heated in the microwave - so it is better to remove them from any plastic wraps or containers.

because with microwave oven cooking both fast,convenient and clean,the depth receives welcome,at present developed country nearly each family all have the microwave oven,quite is also common in china.the microwave oven has become one of modern life symbolic,therefore,if some who did say the microwave food injurious to health,that might be really a little shocking.

According to many medical sources the rumors are false. If you choose healthy dinners to eat such as Healthy Choice, Lean Cussine, and Smart Ones you should have nothing to worry about. Those means usually do not use any preservative and/or artifical colors. Plus, they are low in fat and in sodium. Stay away from the dinners that are high in fat and sodium. I will give you various website to look at: http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/cookplastic.asp www.cspinet.org/nah/04_05/microwavemyths.pdf (Center for Science in the Public Interest - article that they published in April 2005.) Have a nice day. Pablo
