Hello everyone. I thought I might be better off starting in this forum, but I wouldn't be surprised if this thread will be moved to one of the physics boards. 1. Reheating meat, activates bacteria, which is not healthy for us humans, correct? 2. While operational, everything inside the microwave chamber is exposed to radiation levels which are hazardous to living beings (except for radiation resistant bacteria, and something else that I probably don’t know about), correct? If both are true, than if we were to plot a graph of 'number of bacteria' versus 'cooking time in a microwave oven', wouldn't it actually be a bell curve, rather than a straight line with a positive slope or exponential, or whatever it would be in a regular oven, due to prolonged exposure to radiation killing off the bacteria?
