Precautions while using Microwaves
Can microwaves leak radiation
Health Canadastates that some microwave energy may leak from your oven while you are using it, but this would pose no known health risks, as long as the oven is properly maintained. Old or faulty door seals are the most common causes of microwave radiation leakage. Mechanical abuse, a build up of dirt, or wear and tear from continued use can cause door seals to be less effective.
