Is Microwave Cooked Food Harmful for Health?

Food prepared in a microwave oven is equally nutritious and safe as food prepared in a conventional oven. Food is essentially steam-cooked from the inside out when microwaved with a small amount of water. This proves microwave meals can be nutritious by retaining more vitamins and minerals than practically any other cooking method.
