Warren King, a local naturopathic practitioner in Minneapolis, has some valuable wisdom below about the real health hazards of microwave ovens. This hits home for me because I worked for a co. in the 70's that designed microwavecooking accessories, working directly with scientists at Litton, the original inventors of the microwave oven. I had no idea how unsafe it was even though I inquired. Its possible the microwaved food tests I had ingested 25 years ago had something to do with developing asthma and digestive problems. I feel no ill effects today from healing my body with living foods, and good living for at least 8 years.
A little history...and additional facts...
It was discovered that American microwave oven cos. like Litton, Amana, etc, were not required by the FDA to test for safety because they brainwashed the public to think all it did was innocently heat the water in the food. Not true, as you can read below.
In Russia before Perestroika in the 80's, microwave ovens were regarded such a serious health hazard from decades of research done by Russian health scientists since WW2, that microwave ovens were banned in that country for 10 years starting in 1976.
When Perestroika opened up Russia to western corporations and a flood of modern products, the ban was lifted in the interest of creating bigger markets for American microwave oven companies, particularly Litton.
Why was a ban on something proven to be unsafe mysteriously lifted, and crucial health effects research suppressed?

Observation is that Litton also produced advanced missile guidance systems that were included in Reagan's proposed the Strategic Defense Initiative, known as "Star Wars", remember? So as a reward to Litton, a corporate special interest who supported Reagan, he got the ban lifted. And now millions of Russians suffer with Americans from microwaved food.
MICROWAVED PLASTIC WRAP HAS 10,000,000 TIMES FDA LIMITS OF CARCINOGENS!
If the truth got out to enough people, microwave ovens should rightfully be banned. And hopefully some eco-preneur can come up with a way of recycling all the microwave ovens on the planet and convert them into something beneficial. Any ideas?
One more thing.
Then what would we do with all the mountains of GMO microwave popcorn? Its the biggest reason why people buy the darn machines.

Russians Ban Microwave Ovens (click here to read more)
After the World War II, the Russians also experimented with microwave ovens. From 1957 up to recently, their research has been carried out mainly at the Institute of Radio Technology at Klinsk, Byelorussia. According to US researcher William Kopp, who gathered much of the results of Russian and German research - and was apparently prosecuted for doing so (J. Nat. Sci, 1998; 1:42-3) - the following effects were observed by Russian forensic teams:
1. Heating prepared meats in a microwave sufficiently for human consumption created:
* d-Nitrosodiethanolamine (a well-known cancer-causing agent)
* Destabilization of active protein biomolecular compounds
* Creation of a binding effect to radioactivity in the atmosphere
* Creation of cancer-causing agents within protein-hydrosylate compounds in milk and cereal grains;
2. Microwave emissions also caused alteration in the catabolic (breakdown) behavior of glucoside - and galactoside - elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this way;
3. Microwaves altered catabolic behavior of plant-alkaloids when raw, cooked or frozen vegetables were exposed for even very short periods;
4. Cancer-causing free radicals were formed within certain trace-mineral molecular formations in plant substances, especially in raw root vegetables;
5. Ingestion of micro-waved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells in blood;
6. Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions occurred in the lymphatic system, causing degeneration of the immune system=s capacity to protect itself against cancerous growth;
7. The unstable catabolism of micro-waved foods altered their elemental food substances, leading to disorders in the digestive system;
8. Those ingesting micro-waved foods showed a statistically higher incidence of stomach and intestinal cancers, plus a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues with a gradual breakdown of digestive and excretory system function;
9. Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritional value of all foods studied, particularly:
* A decrease in the bioavailability of B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotrophics
* Destruction of the nutritional value of nucleoproteins in meats
* Lowering of the metabolic activity of alkaloids, glucosides, galactosides and nitrilosides (all basic plant substances in fruits and vegetables)
* Marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.
As a result microwave ovens were banned in Russia in 1976; the ban was lifted after Perestroika
