Does microwave cooking cause cancer?
Recently while surfing I found many links about microwave cooking cause cancer. there are many sites that says its true and many says its wrong. so I am little bit confused what you guys says please help me.
Microwave has less energy than visible light to which we are exposed a lot. In terms of causing cancer, visible light comprised of the colors of the rainbow is much more hazardous than microwave. Ultraviolet rays cause cancer most of the time because they move or excite electrons from their original orbital. An energy of at least 1216 kcal/mole can excite an electron. Once an electron moves to another orbital the atom to which it originally belonged changes. That change is actually an injury.
The best guide as to safety is to look at the energy levels of electromagnetic waves from the cosmic rays, gamma rays, x rays, ultraviolet rays, visible light, microwave, radio wave, etc. in decreasing order of energy level. You may verify these waves and their order, I am writing from memory. You can even get their exact energy level. I have a Hub on why microwave oven is safe for cooking food.
This is a valid question. I always make sure I stand far away from the microwave when it is cooking. I cannot answer this question but I can tell you that isfyou heat your food with Styrofoam in the microwave- the chemicals that are produced when you heat your food in this- does cause cancer.
