We all know a microwave heats/cooks food. What most do not know is that there is so much EMF & RF radiation today that is manmade from so many things in our lives ,from the cell phone to the microwaves, that there is now cause for concern that the TOTAL EMF & RF radiation ,we all have pass though our bodies today, that WILL ENABLE cancer to be spawned ,or to grow when they would not otherwise, studies are now underway to determine there effects on our health.

Cell phones ,in particular, are under the gun due to the close proximity to the brain ,and our salivary glands, that cause cancers in long term users, or heavy cell users, are being connected to their use.

"Environmental Working Group (EWG), a public-health advocacy, released a lengthy review of past research linking long-term or frequent cell-phone use with increased rates of brain tumors, migraines and kids' behavioral problems. For their part, the phone industry and the Federal Government say cell phones are safe. The "majority of studies published have failed to show an association between exposure to radio-frequency from a cell phone and health problems," states the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on its website. But concerns are high enough that the Senate on Sept. 14 held hearings — led by Democratic Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, a brain-cancer survivor — to examine the subject.

Given the track record--honesty-wise and accuracy-wise--of those who claim "safe!" I'd say there is much to be concerned about.
