Ditch your microwave oven! Nowadays we are exposed to so much microwave radiation, risk mitigation and radiation avoidance is a wise means of risk aversion. If you still have a microwave in your home, I’d consider throwing it away permanently. The microwave creates electromagnetic radiation to heat food though the negative health impacts have been mostly ignored. Aside from giving you and your family cancer and heart problems, the microwave oven completely kills nutrients in food making it pointless for consumption. In one study, 40% of the subjects experienced changes to their heart rate after using a microwave oven.
