The rumor: Zapping food in a microwave leaches out key nutrients
We've all heard about how microwaving food removes some nutritional value, but is it true? Is something bad happening to our food behind that microwave glass?
The verdict: If you do it right, cooking food in the microwave is one of the best ways to retain your food's vitamins and minerals
There are dangers to microwaving your food. You could get scalded, for one. If you use the wrong kind of plastic (hint: one that doesn't say "microwave safe"), unhealthy chemicals could seep into your food.
But if you're concerned about getting the most nutrition out of your eats, microwaving is a safe bet. In fact, it's near the top of the list for nutritionally sound food-preparation methods. If you use your microwave with a small amount of water to essentially steam food from the inside, you'll retain more vitamins and minerals than with almost any other cooking method.

I learned how to poach eggs in the microwave the other day. Awesome! Great poached eggs in less than two minutes. From in the shell to the fork in 3-4 minutes, when you allow prep and cooling times..
It ruins pizza.
That would explain why there's radioactive waste about 2 days later.
