Whether or not there's any scientific evidence to back it up or not.

cookinworld, are you looking for information from us or are you looking to support your own theory? There is a big difference. Maybe I'm just of a suspicious bent, but it seems like you have a particular agenda with regard to microwave safety.

If you don't want to believe the folks here thats fine. If you want to believe the articles you cited, also fine. Folks here are very helpful and do their research. When you are looking for information it is important to check the source of that information. If it is just some Shmoe on the street saying something you might want to be sceptical. If it is a university study publishing its findings, thats a bit more credible. You might also want to look at the dates of the studies. The more recent the better.

Good luck.

Microwaving near Chernobyl could be detrimental to one's health. Fishing, walking, sleeping, breathing, etc is also dangerous. Maybe that's where the "study" was from...

The lawsuit to which you refer has become a poster child for rage against liability litigation, surely fueled by business interests. Unfortunately, as with so many issues, the public either forgets or ignores the actual details and facts of the case. They are not as simplistic as people might think.

It's always easy to be a bit smug about personal responsibility when it's the other guy. So yes, common sense is needed -- in finding a balance between both personal AND corporate responsibility.

I meant to add in my post that judges don't issue awards; juries do, after deliberations. In fact, judges are the ones who usually reduce the monetary amount.

Here is an article I found interesting about this topic (and some others) on WebMD, if anyone is interested.
