When it comes to our health we have to do what feels comfortable to us because we are the ones who will suffer the consequences.

I may have picked up some irrational behaviors after my treatment (maybe, maybe not), but, oh well, that's the new me ... LOL!

I have been told that they are harmless and harmful so I think it is an individual decision on whether or not to use them.How you feel is most important after all the experts do not agree on safety of microwaves.

Try using glass instead of plastic to avoid chemical transfer. Stand to one side when opening the door and hope radiation flies in a straight line.

Or use the pre-microwave way of reheating foods. It just takes a little longer to heat food properly and safely. Steam, boiling water, fry etc.

Go with what you feel comfortable and safe with.

How do you feel about heating foods or re-heating them in the microwave? Are you concerned about the chemical transfer from the container into your foods? Are you concern about the radiation?

Ever since my stem-cell transplant, I can't get myself to use the microwave. I want to know if this is a rational fear on my part, or if I'm just going bananas over nothing.
