From ‘Healthy Food House‘ information that should be available to all households.
An extract from the article,
Dr. Hans Hertel, a Swiss biologist, and food scientist conducted a study to examine the effects of microwaved food. Participants lived in a controlled environment and intermittently ate raw foods, conventionally cooked foods, and microwaved foods for 8 weeks.
After meals, researchers tested the blood samples of participants, and tests showed that the blood chemistry has been drastically changed due to the microwaved food.
Hans Hertel states:
“There are no atoms, molecules or cells of any organic system able to withstand such a violent, destructive power for any extended period of time, not even in the low energy range of milliwatts…
This is how microwave cooking heat is generated – friction from this violence in water molecules. Structures of molecules are torn apart, molecules are forcefully deformed (called structural isomerism) and thus become impaired in quality.”
Microwaves work with all water molecules they can come across, and due to this, the food is often unevenly heated, as some foods contain higher water amounts.
Researchers at Stanford University examined the effects of microwaves on breast milk. According to one of the head scientist,
“Microwaving human milk, even at a low setting, can destroy some of its important disease-fighting capabilities.”
They state that microwaving causes numerous alter changes in the milk besides heating.
In 1991, the Oklahoma hospital was sued after the death of a patient after receiving blood that was heated in a microwave oven.
As a result of the negative effects of microwave ovens on the health, they have been banned in Russia since 1976.
These are the detrimental effects of these ovens:

Here we have the potential food-related dangers, part of the total risk scenario.
Leakages from the equipment, claimed to be safely constrained and tested to be so on new equipment, could be a problem on any slightly damaged door sealing instance. There are no obvious requirements to have microwave ovens officially tested for leakages so this is surely a “grey area”.
Of course, the claims by the manufacturers and its supporters strongly counter what is in this post, so there is a need to research it all to reach some sensible conclusion. Not so easy as there is a great deal of available information, most of it technical.
One website revealed by internet searching seems to be comprehensive and unbiassed,
“LessEMF.com” offers several related documents:
My personal, suspicious inclination, favours safety first and puts vested-interest viewpoints second.
The fact that Russia has investigated and has banned microwave ovens is significant, along with their opposition to GMO foods which may be partly political but only partly. Russia has a keen eye on its citizen’s well-being with promotion of organic products and awareness of potential vaccine dangers.
To accentuate the danger side of this issue, and to reveal one source of influence on my decision making, the above reference contains the following “cherry-picked” section in the form of a ‘TGR’ page.
