It just doesn't: Microwaves produced wavelengths of radiation that don't damage the genes, which must happen to cause cancer. Everything gives off radiation -- light, your own body warmth, and dangerous x-rays. There are many types and most are harmless. The world is full of crooks posing as humanitarians, and you need to be discerning. Thanks for your question. ...Read more

No!: Radiation produced by a microwave is "non-ionizing." it does not have cancer causing risks like ionizing radiation from x-rays. The biggest hazard is microwaving liquids: superheating to over the boiling point without bubbles of vapor forming in the liquid. When the liquid is disturbed-boiling can explosively start-violently ejecting boiling liquid from the container causing severe scalding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
