    DMS dismisses information saying that microwave more dangerous than atomic bomb

    BANGKOK, 12 June 2019 (NNT) - The Department of Medical Sciences (DMS) disclosed that information indicating that microwave is more dangerous than the atomic bomb is not true as the mechanism of microwave operation is to channel heat energy directly to the molecules inside food and it does not cause harmful radiation.


    Following the online rumor that the Japanese government decided to dispose of all microwave ovens in the country before the end of this year because a research finding suggests that they are more dangerous than the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki All and citizens and organizations that do not fulfill the requirement are threatened with a fine and imprisonment, DMS Director General Ophas Karnkawinphong said the Bureau of Radiation and Medical Devices has confirmed that the mechanism of microwave operation is to channel heat energy directly to the molecules inside food until the food is cooked and it doesn’t cause radiation so there is no residue of any radiation. The online rumor that causes confusion and there is no scientific reason to support it. The danger that is claimed is not true.


    Those who are interested in checking the leak of a microwave oven can have their microwave oven checked at Bureau of Radiation and Medical Devices, DMS, or at the Medical Science Centers throughout the country during office hours.

    I wonder if those believing such things read them on a mobile...carrier frequency isn't far off that used in a microwave oven.

    Carrier frequency is 2.45GHz ie in the middle of the 2.4GHz WiFi band. Turn down your router signal output level

    Good grief. Not physicist, but pretty sure that is a fairly shitty description of how a microwave works. The whole point is there is no "channelling" of heat to the molecules - there is induction of heat by the molecules as a consequence of rotation.

    However, am prepared to be corrected.
