    According to Global Healing Center, the danger of microwave radiation is very real. They qoute: “Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process…. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.”

    Microwaves can turn some minerals into cancerous agents. If you eat microwaved food much it can potentially increase cancerous cells in the human blood.

    Microwaving is no more damaging to the nutrients and vitamins in food as conventional cooking methods. Heat destroys these things, the type of heat is nearly irrelevant.

    Microwaves heat up the polarized molecules in the food. Soemtimes, it will change the chemical composition of certain molecules, which will make them carcinogens.

    To answer your question. Yes, microwaves produce radiation but it is non-ionizing, meaning there is no cancer risk that is associated with ionizing radiation (X rays and high energy particles).
