What is Microwave Radiation & why it can be dangerous?
Microwaves are produced inside the oven are reflected within the metal interior of the oven where they are absorbed by food. They cause water molecules in food to vibrate, producing heat that cooks the food.
A microwave oven forms a so-called Faraday’s cage whose metal construction blocks all electromagnetic waves from flowing outside of it. However with time, the door’s electromagnetic seal will inevitably wear out and waves could escape or leak through from the oven. Microwave radiation is not visible, there is no clear signal that something is not functioning properly. Microwave leakage is serious enough that the FDA sets strict limits on it for the manufacturers. But once door seals age, leaking tends to exceed those limits, often at head level. A Federal standard limits the amount of microwaves that can leak from an oven throughout its lifetime to 5 (mW) of microwave radiation per square centimeter at approximately 2 inches from the oven surface. Microwave energy can be absorbed by the body and produce heat in exposed tissues. Organs with a poor blood supply and temperature control, such as the eye, or temperature-sensitive tissue like the testes, have a higher risk of heat damage.
