When a microwave gets old does it cause more radiation?

    Not unless it’s damaged.  Any microwave oven made after 1971 had to meet a radiation safety standard devised by the FDA.  Regardless of age, the only way that a microwave oven’s safety would be compromised is if it were leaking radiation through a crack.  So, if your microwave oven is cracked, dented or coming apart at the seams, or if the seal has deteriorated, or if there is a lot of grime built up around the door, then you might have a problem.  If the microwave is in good shape and has been well taken care of, then it should be just as safe as it was when it was new.
