Kitchen Myths

Facts and fiction about food and cooking, by Peter Aitken

Microwave cooking is radiation and makes foods poisonous

Yes, microwaves are radiation, just like the light from the sun, the warmth from a cozy fire, or the signal that brings you radio shows. But, it is nonionizing radiation, which means that it has no effect on food other than heating it up. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the truly dangerous ionizing radiation that is associated with atomic bombs and nuclear power plants.
