  • Precautions while using Microwaves

    Take care and ensure that children are using

    Last but not the least, you have to take care and ensure that children are supervised while using the microwave. Microwave energy can be absorbed by the body and produce heat in exposed tissues. Organs with a poor blood supply and temperature control, such as the eye, or temperature sensitive tissue like the testes, have a higher risk of heat damage. However, thermal damage would only occur from long exposures to very high power levels, well in excess of those measured around microwave ovens.
