For 30 years I’ve had a microwave. We used it for everything: reheating leftovers, melting butter for baking, for cooking pizza pockets, etc. Everything that most people use them for.

that heating your food in the microwave can strip away its original nutrients?
that standing a foot away from it while it’s running can expose you to upwards of 400 milliGauss, and a mere 4 milliGauss has been firmly linked to leukemia?
