Title: Is microwaving food safe?
Post by: thedoc on 01/05/2012 17:18:30
I have read your article regarding heating up food in a microwave in plastic and I understand what you said. I recently read an article where a student watered plants with water that was heated in a microwave and within 9 days the plant died. Any truth in this statement?

If I do not heat food in plastic containers is microwaving safe?

Kind regards

Norman
