Precautions while using Microwaves
Microwave oven is extremely safe
Properly used, a microwave oven is extremely safe. Under authority of the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act, FDAs Center for Devices and Radiological Health ensures that microwave ovens made after 1971 meet a radiation safety standard requiring: two independent interlock systems to stop microwave production the moment the latch is released or the door is opened. A monitoring system stops the oven if either or both of the interlocks fail.
