It's probably safe to leave food in takeout containers: The key is to store food in a shallow container that can be sealed when it's cooled. These practices help keep bacteria out. Here's another safety tip: Don't let prepared food sit out — in your car or on the counter — for more than two hours. If you’re someplace hot (more than 90 F or 32 C) reduce that time to one hour. Bacteria can grow rapidly in food that's unrefrigerated. And some bacteria make a poison or toxin that can make you ill, hence the term "food poisoning. " If you don't plan on eating takeout food immediately, you have two choices. You can keep it hot in a preheated oven at an internal temperature of 140 F (60 C) or higher. Or you can divide food into smaller portions, place in shallow containers and refrigerate. Plan to reheat the food to a temperature of 165 F (74 C) just before serving. ...Read more

Is it bad if you eat food from a slightly heated plastic box. Also eating on a table where a computer is can it absorb radiation?
Don't use plastic: It is never a good idea to heat food in plastic. There are products that claim to be microwave safe but chemicals still come out of the plastic when it is heated. Some of those chemicals interfere with hormones. You don't need to worry about radiation from computers. It is not the kind that emits radioactive particles so nothing would end up staying in food. ...Read more
