Had the manufacturers accurately called them "radiation ovens", it's doubtful they would have ever sold one, but that's exactly what a microwave oven is.We've all been told that microwaving food is not the same as irradiating it (radiation "treatment").
As consumers, we're supposed to have a certain degree of common sense to use in judgment.Many terms are used in describing electromagnetic waves, such as wavelength, amplitude, cycle and frequency: Radiation, as defined by physics terminology, is "the electromagnetic waves emitted by the atoms and molecules of a radioactive substance as a result of nuclear decay." Radiation causes ionization, which is what occurs when a neutral atom gains or loses electrons.In simpler terms, a microwave oven decays and changes the molecular structure of the food by the process of radiation.Now, recent government sponsored studies are saying that eggs are not bad for us after all.
So, whom should we believe and what criteria should we use to decide matters concerning our health?
In general, people believe that whatever a microwave oven does to foods cooked in it doesn't have any negative effect on either the food or them.
