Microwave Cooking Damages DNA?

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.
