5 Things You Should Never Microwave
The microwave is a very common, and often used, kitchen appliance. It's a
great tool for heating up last night's dinner or a quick "2 minute meal".
However, the microwave ovens we know today, the same that cook the food we eat,
are descended from the radar boxes of the Second World War.
Invented by Percy L. Spencer, who was a radar technician during the war,
microwave ovens use electromagnetic energy that is very similar to radio waves.
Due to this heating method, microwaves emit non-ionizing radiation, which
studies show can affect our blood and heart. The effects of this radiation can
lead to certain types of intestinal and stomach cancers.
That being said, there is no need to fear. Microwaves today go through many
extensive tests and safety procedures to make sure they are safe to use. But
while we are safe standing next to them, what happens to the food we heat inside
of them? Here are 5 things you should never put in the microwave as it will
damage the food, and maybe also the people who'll eat it.
