Is microwave cooking harmful or healthy for us?
The microwaves do not hurt us, unless you have a leaky oven. Most ovens ought to be shielded enough, and the food doesn’t retain any radiation. If food is prepared properly, microwave cooking can be very healthy. I will never trust my microwave to cook raw meats, especially poultry, because microwaves just don’t cook evenly. They are great for defrosting, though. They are also great for reheating. But for healthy talk, microwave ovens are best for cooking fresh veggies! You don’t lose as many nutrients to water, because you don’t have to use so much. The water you add steams the veggies, and the water in the veggies cooks them from inside. When done right, veggies are great in the microwave.
