Yes, microwave radiation is EM. UV light is also EM. The amount of UV light which reaches the atmosphere in US is higher than other countries because the ozone layer is partially depleted. And not a whole lot of UV is there in the sunlight here. Yet, because of exposure to the UV radiation, US has so many skin cancer cases. It is the most common cancer in US. But it is not so in India. Because we have better ozone layer above us.
Microwave radiation is lot more powerful. For example, in my lab, a reaction which needs heating at 150degrees Centigrade for 12 hours, can be done in a microwave at 100C for 30-45min. That's how powerful MW radiation is.
I am sure the household microwaves are not that powerful, but still even a tenth of such intense radiation or even smaller fraction can cause genetic damage to the food you eat. If you understand the biology of cancer, it is mainly a genetic disease (some scientists say it is a disease of ageing. But as you age, your genetic material gets damaged).

I highly discourage use of microwaves. I can guarantee that you'll be doing your family and yourself a big favor by not using it. In fact, one of the most carcinogenic foods is microwaved popcorn. If you can't totally avoid it, at least avoid MW popcorn.
Other cancer causing foods-
high fructose corn syrup. Often found in juices, jellies etc. It literally feeds cancer.
several artificial sugars. Like saccharin. Its proven carcinogenic.
Red meat.
you can google it. The list should be easily available.

Its not that all this was not known. Saccharin was tested for toxic properties. But then.. corporates run the show. The whole pharma, insurance business is a scandal.
I've been using gur (jaggery) from several years, in my coffee cup or any kind of beverage which requires sweetening. I avoid any type of soft-drink unless its very hot day. As of what I know, the Microwave radiation produced in kitchen is very small. In fact I did a python programming lessen of MIT course, which suggested that there are house hold items that have a radio active half life of x-amount (can't recall) which we daily consume every day, but that's too small.

So if you are boiling water, as long as you are not re-heating it again you are good. Right?

Not surprising what you learnt in MIT courseware. NIH is against any study co-relating microwave and chronic conditions.

I am not going to give a yes/no answer. Also, many times in India, unless it comes from a westerner, people tend not to believe. So, here are some excerpts from what Dr. Max Chartrand wrote on a researchforum:

"Our clinical observation over the past 20 years or more, looking at health changes when patients stop microwaving is that we see dramatic reductions in acidosis and metabolic-related diseases. Diabetes moderates, high blood pressure moderates without medication, cases of acid reflux were reduced by more than 90%. In my recent research for a book on the Interstitium and Essential Oils I noted that essential oils in plant based foods burned instantly when placed in a microwave. Convection cooking, when carried out with burning the food does not seem to lose the volatile essential oil biochemistry like microwaving. So, I say to any patient who comes onto one of our research project that if they truly want to overcome a given chronic condition, a prerequisite is to not microwave their food, not even for warming. The absence of evidence is NOT evidence that a given hypothesis is not correct. In fact, the very definition of ignorance is condemnation before investigation. Of the studies that claim to show microwaving is safe, I've not seen one yet that would pass muster in my doctoral research classes"

“A similar analogy might be rendered on the demonstrable health outcomes between eating non-GMO organic fruits and vegetables and dairy, etc. and eating a diet straight from the freezer into the microwave: the differences in health outcomes over years and decades in one's physical health are stunning. That is the reason I cannot accept the studies that claim superiority in microwaving food from a nutrition standpoint. Because that which is considered measured nutrition is to me, and many other knowledgeable researchers, a barbaric, over-simplified construct that tells us nothing about microwaving's effect on organic nutrients. And, my dear friends and colleagues, organic food is where health is.”

“As we survey oncology programs in the US, we find two that advise against micrwaving of food as a necessary protocol of their treatment program: MD Anderson and Cancer Centers of America”.
(By the way, MD Anderson is a leading cancer institute in the US)

“My wife, a noted Occupational Therapist, had already started her SIRCLE Method (Stress Induced or Related Lifestyle Education) program and added these changes to her rehabilitative program for hundreds of patients. With this addition to her program she found a marked increase in all areas of health and chronic disease. So, by the early 2000s advising patients to not microwave their food, proved to be the linchpin to producing remarkable results. By 2010 we began formally tracking the metabolic changes in Case Studies among our patients and determined that when they followed a strict cessation of microwaved food that all biomarkers improved and they were able to overcome or improve outcomes of virtually any chronic condition. Cancer patients improved, neuropathy, arthtritis, and digestive disorders (acid reflux, particularly) improved, and efforts to overcome hidden interstital infections and parasites became more manageable”.

People are getting numb with these numbers. South Asia is inexorably becoming the new hotspot.

It's just the beginning for some country for obvious reasons.

The lockdown was well timed, and most of the country pulled together.
But was vital to have squashed this afterv2-3 months of lockdown.
And unfortunately we as a nation are only as strong as our weakest links - the 15% minority ghettoes, and the non BJP sarkars in the crucial cities of Mumbai and Delhi.

Hcq is proving effective, ICMR warned about remdesivir and tocilizumab use.

Good news... Biocon is a Indian company. :india2:


In a major breakthrough in the treatment of Coronavirus in India, Biocon's drug Itolizumab received a nod by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) for its use on moderate to severe COVID-19 patients. The leading pharmaceutical company's drug is one of the first biologic therapy drugs to be approved for the treatment of COVID patients across the world. It will be available in the form of an intravenous injection.

Breathing problems one day, died the next day ... Truly scary :shock:

More than 50℅ of deaths are below 60 years of age. I have heard that in a city nearby a family whose member was tested positive was locked in the same manner as families were being locked in China. I don't know it its true.

There are more reason to fear covid now.. it is causing blood clots there by reducing blood flow to internal organ.. oxygen is already depleted in blood by resporatory problems and then less supply of blood doing permanent damage to brain and other vital organs ..

thats news to me. i thought most of the deaths were > 60 years of age. Very less below that. Well, i no longer know what is fact and what is fiction.
Couldn't find the original article that I had read. But here is another one stating same. Its from may. I had read ICMR briefing stating the ratio which was recent one may be of June.
