I do have a microwave down in the basement.... I do not use them anymore.
1. 8 years ago, my husband told me not to open the microwave oven door 30 seconds after the use, because the radiation is still bouncing around.
2. 3 years ago, my husband heard the story about the radiation will change the food’s DNA and if you eat the food, the body won't recognize as food anymore and you get more high cholesterol.
I can’t proof this but I am ok with not using the microwave. I have got used to it.
