In our home, we use our microwave a few times per day. Will prolonged exposure to microwave energy cause long-term health problems?

Some studies indicate a possibility for health problems with prolonged exposure to microwave energy. However, most research has shown that it's very natural to be exposed to low-level microwaves. We are regularly exposed to microwaves in the atmosphere – without any adverse or lasting effects. Microwave ovens are required to meet stringent federal government guidelines to prevent any leakage issues.
