How Bad is it Really to Microwave your food?

1 minReading time

One of my all-time favorite meals? Microwaved ‘baked’ potato, with scrambled eggs. I’m usually full for a good long few hours afterward, and it’s delicious.

Here’s the thing: I’ve heard more than a few times that microwaving your food is terribly bad for you. My mom has said it, my dad has said it; by this point I’m fairly convinced it’s true.
