         If I could do something disappeared in the planet I would choose a microwave. This appliance must be banish forever. Microwave cooking is not natural, nor healthy, and is far more dangerous to the human body than anyone could imagine. Microwave cooking changes the molecular structure of food. If having a microwave in the home were a necessity, then perhaps I wouldn't feel ok, but it is totally a luxury, one I can do without, and to risk one's life for a luxury. Not me. You can install a convection oven, or a steam; which cooks almost as quickly as a microwave, without the possible dangers. 
         Let’s talk a little bit about the history about this appliance. Every thing started with the Nazis who invented the first microwave. Known first as radiomissors, they were used for preparation of meals on a mass scale during the invasion of Russia. After the war, the Russians had retrieved some of these microwave ovens and conducted thorough research on their biological effects. So alarmed by what they learned, the Russians banned microwave ovens in 1976.
         My sister has two lovely daughters and she told me that she had learned that microwave ovens leak dangerous radiation and that her obstetrician had told her to stay away from microwaves when she was pregnant. Further, she indicated that there's lots of proof that microwaves destroy the nutritional value of the food and that food that has been microwaved can cause cancer.
We could dismiss this warning and risk our own health and the health of our loved ones? The effects of direct microwave exposure can be very serious and include corneal cataracts that can lead to blindness, tissue heating, and cellular damage. I never had a microwave, and I try not to eat anywhere that I know microwave cooking is used.

Some alternatives to microwave:

1-   You can heat food quickly in a convection oven. It's just an ordinary oven with a fan. And the food will have better taste.
2-   You can also easily and quickly heat up food, even frozen pasta, by using a saucepan with a lid and a little water.
3-    You can buy a steam.
4-   If you want to cook food, do it the old fashioned ways it tastes much better that way!

  1. I haven’t known the history about microwave. You know a lot of interesting histories about cooking. I think I’d better to stay away from microwave. Using microwave is easy, but I agree steaming is better not only for the taste but also for our health.
