Microwaves?
« on: March 21, 2013, 07:06:05 PM »
Does anyone have any reliable proof that using microwaves causes cancer, or that it is dangerous? My sister stopped using them, then so did I. To think that you are exposing food to radiation is enough to make some people stop using microwaves. But is it actually dangerous?

This details many negative things about using microwaves:

I do know that any reports of harmful effects from microwaves may be lies. It's obviously possible. But when I research and I discover more and more articles warning about microwaves, or fluoride, or aspartame, or trans fats, or other things, I will rather not take the risk that I might be giving myself cancer, unless of course there is enough evidence that proves or argues logically that the suspected dangers are not harmful.

Shalom Aleikhem,

1. The burden of proof is on the ones claiming that using microwaves will cause cancer. 

2. If you are looking for scientific information, then please do yourself the favor of not getting them from sites like the one you linked. I can guarantee you that if it was the case that your microwave oven is trying to give you cancer, scientists would be the ones warning you and getting their nobel prizes for that at the same time. :)

And, if possible.. please stay away from people that offers you alternative medicine and holistic nonsense.


Peace

Salaam,

The microwave oven leaves no radiation when it finished running. The only aspect of risk of using these ovens is that it degrades the nutritional value of the food been cooked. I have no more information on it and I am no scientist, this is just common knowledge about microwave ovens.

God bless you

Microwaves are unhealthy:

i could be wrong, but are microwaves not just heat radiation?
What could i say that is better than what God has already informed us of?
Follow God
Seek His guidance, the only guidance
Glory and Praise be to God, rabbil Aalameen

One thing I have noticed is that foods heated in microwave get cold much faster than heated convetionally. If you do not eat them immediately you may have to reheat them.

May be that is explained by the water conted being the one heated, and not th eother contents. Whereas in conventional heat everything is heated. That may also explain what is said in your link that food done or heated in microwave keeps better its nutrients.

If they caused cancer half the world with elecricity ould have been killed already. There is hardly anyway today to not have a microwave functioning every day.
