Microwave ovens utilize radiation to heat food. In some instances this radiation leakage can be harmful to humans. It is important to ensure that your microwave is shielding you, your employees and your family from radiation leakage.
Being exposed to high levels of microwave radiation can cause health problems, such as cataracts and burns. While most microwave oven leaks are considered to be too small to create such significant health risks, a microwave that is leaking radiation could cause unknown health risks and isn't likely to be as efficient as it should be.
