Is the Mircowave waves harmful to our body. If so why are they harmful?
Good question. As a family doctor, I receive a variety of interesting ponderables from a variety of people like yourself. Heat is the main result from exposure to microwave radiation. The energy from microwave ovens cause the water molecules in the food item in the oven to vibrate at an increased rate. This increased vibration of water molecules heats the substance and voila, you have cooked food. If there is no water in the food then less heating occurs.
Try to avoid heating food wrapped with plastic since when the water evaporates into steam, the steam can cause the plastic to melt slightly and drip into your food. It's better to cover your food with a plate or a paper towel.
Microwaves, from a home appliance, are not powerful enough to harm people. Microwaves have a long wave length that can last a long time, which makes it good for transmitting information, but has trouble penetrating matter, which means its easily shielded. So, even the thin plastic cover on your microwave at home is able to contain the waves transmitted.
Some have argued that outdoor microwaves can be damaging, but no long term studies have shown any significant damage to humans. Birds may be affected, their ability to judge direction seems to be faulty in areas with high microwave emmissions.
