3 Microwave cooking can release dangerous carcinogens into food

Breast milk warmed in microwaves was robbed of its antibacterial properties whereas frozen breast milk heated at high temperatures showed an increase of E coli.

Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of Microwave cooking was the creation of carcinogens in the process. When you heat food contained in plastic, carcinogens are created during that process. The Russian government at one time had issued a warning about the negative health impact of microwave cooking.
