Dear friends!
What is your openion about validity of the following information:

" When was the last time you checked your microwave for radiation
leakage? Yes, I did say radiation leakage, because any microwave can
start leaking radiation any time, for whatever reasons. And such a
leakage is hazardous to humans and pets in the house.

You don't need to call in experts or to send your microwave to the
dealer's workshop for a leakage test. That's time consuming,
inconvenient and costly. Here's how you can test your microwave for
radiation leakage, right in your own house, at no cost. Just follow
these simple steps >>>

1. Switch-off and un-plug the microwave from the electrical socket.
2. Place your mobile phone inside the microwave and shut the door.
3. Using another mobile phone, dial the phone that's inside the microwave.
4. If the outside phone says "the number you are dialling is not
reachable, or is out of coverage area, or is switched off; then your
microwave is safe.
5. But if the phone inside the microwave lights up and rings, your
microwave is leaking radiation. Just throw away the damn thing and get
a new one. (Believe me, the medical treatment of the side-effects of
radiation leaks is costlier than the price of maybe 10 new
microwaves.)

Remember, just because the door of your microwave appears to shut
properly does not conclusively mean that it is not leaking radiation.
Stay safe, and test your microwave regularly at frequent intervals;
the frequency of testing depending on the extent of usage, and you are
the best judge of that."

I think this information is scientifically correct,because radiation can pass through any crevices and holes.
Thanks in advance!
