Aren't foods healthier microwaved instead of fried?

For the most part: If you fry foods at too low a temperature or put too much food in the pan it will lengthen the time it takes to cook and will cause the food to absorb more fat from the oils. Some oils are less healthy than others. Studies support the notion that fried foods increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
