How are microwaves related to cancer?

Is it just old microwaves that would put you at risk?


Answer by  monkeyz (3150)

Microwaves work by heating up water molecules in food. It is believed that the molecular changes that happen to food when it is microwaved can affect people when the food is consumed. In addition to that, the waves themselves are harmful to humans. If a person were exposed to the radiation a microwave gives off, it could affect their cells.
