In this quick video, we’re going to talk about microwave ovens and nutrition. Is microwaving food bad for you?

The type of radiation that you’re getting with microwaves is non-ionizing radiation. It’s still radiation, but it’s not as bad as getting a cat scan or x-rays. 

Some long-term studies show that using the microwave may have a carcinogenic (cancer-causing) effect and produce cataracts in animals. 

Using the microwave can reduce your nutrients from 5-40% or more depending on how long you cook the food in the microwave. 

Other microwave side effects:

 • Increase the glucose/insulin response 
 • Increase free radicals
 • Oxidize cholesterol 
 • Release up to 44 different chemicals 

What to do:
 • If you’re going to use the microwave, don’t use it on a regular basis 
 • Try to use it for the minimum amount of time
 • Do not cook in plastic
