Have you seen the e-mail about the horrors of microwave cooking? I received it for the second time today. The first time was over a year ago – rumors die slowly. If you have not seen it, the short version of the story goes like this: microwave ovens cause damage to DNA, cause cancer, etc. The internet is a wealth of information – good and bad. This particular e-mail is untrue. Please see an article from the Nutrition Action Newsletter (from way back in 2005!) that sets the record straight on this persistent misinformation about microwave cooking.
