Microwaves get a bad rap.
At least once a week, I stumble upon a “wellness blog” where a science-butchering, fearmonger is talking smack about this incredibly convenient kitchen appliance.
The laundry list of offenses committed by the modest microwave is extensive.
Some common accusations include:
- Microwaves leak dangerous amounts of harmful radiation.
- Microwaves destroy food’s “life energy” and reduce nutritional value.
- Microwaves denature, aka “kill,” protein.
- Microwaving food creates toxic, carcinogenic compounds which will cause cancer.
These claims aren’t cool.
And (not a huge surprise to my fellow science nerds), they’re not true.
