Microwave kills all the nutrients in food? True or false?


I just read a comment on a hub stating: "Don't use a microwave, it kills all nutrients in food. Is this true or false? And, if it is true, then why? Is it the radiation?

    Great answer Jim, although I still wouldn't suggest putting the hamster in the microwave! :-)

    microwaved food has no more radiation than sitting your carrots in front of the tv or radio. another misconception is that irradiating food to kill microorganisms makes the food radioactive
