Re: Microwave Cooking
It doesn't actually put radiation in the damn food it is heat only.
Its difficult because it uses the skin effect to heat the food which often results in burnt outside and uncooked inside.
I doubt this does a damn thing different than heating in a regular oven its just heating it differently.

Microwave ovens heat food through a process of creating molecular friction, but this same molecular friction quickly destroys the delicate molecules of vitamins and phytonutrients (plant medicines) naturally found in foods. One study showed that microwaving vegetables destroys up to 97% of the nutritional content

Really dude? Come on?
Don't speak like an authority when you have no clue as to what you speak of.

ra·di·a·tion/n/Noun: The emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as moving subatomic particles.
The energy transmitted in this way.

mi·cro·wave/v/Noun: An electromagnetic wave with a wavelength in the range 0.001–0.3 m. Microwaves are used in radar, in communications, and for heating


A microwave oven works by passing non-ionizing microwave radiation, usually at a frequency of 2.45 gigahertz (GHz)—a wavelength of 122 millimetres (4.80 in)—through the food. Microwave radiation is between common radio and infrared frequencies. Water, fat, and other substances in the food absorb energy from the microwaves in a process called dielectric heating. Many molecules (such as those of water) are electric dipoles, meaning that they have a partial positive charge at one end and a partial negative charge at the other, and therefore rotate as they try to align themselves with the alternating electric field of the microwaves. Rotating molecules hit other molecules and put them into motion, thus dispersing energy. This energy, when dispersed as molecular vibration in solids and liquids (i.e., as both potential energy and kinetic energy of atoms), is heat.

The ONLY harm Microwave cooking can do is if you eat food to fast after you remove it from the Microwave because for a few minutes after it is still cooking inside.

It does.
But oven cooking generally doesn't use radiation to heat food.

After a few minutes all radiation from microwave food is gone.
Its not really harmful if you eat it directly from the microwave neither. The most harmful thing what could happen is a scorched mouth.

That's true.,

Most people just stick it on the highest setting and let it do its own thing.

You can lower the temp*In a way* inside Microwaves to cook food more slowly.
Its like. Food would be shit if you cooked it in the oven full-blast also because you cook it too fast burning the outside leaving the middle raw.
Same applies to the Microwave.
Most have settings for different food.
I suggest you read the books which come with your ovens.

Re: Microwave Cooking
"Food Irradiation" is an entirely different subject than
Microwave Cooking.

in the case of Food Irradiation Cobalt-60 is used because
is emits massive amountS of Gamma radiation, and these
Gamma Rays are what enters the food and "sterilizes"
it so it will have a much much longer shelf-life.

once again, our old friend the "molecule buster" is at
work here too; and the idea with Gamma Ray Irradiation
is that the Gamma Rays will disrupt the molecules inside
of all of the bacteria and bug eggs and stuff so that
they will all die, and be no problem. that's it. nothing
more.

and yes, just as wiTH "cooking" these Gamma Rays also
disrupt some of the molecules in the food itself, but
it is infinitesimal.

the only bad thing that could happen is that when the
molecules are broken up that the secondary smaller
molecules that are produced might in some way be
"poisonous" to the human body. but, THAT CAN NEVER HAPPEN.
