Considering the microwave destroys food, even if you put broccoli in.. By the time it's done it'll be virtually useless nutritionally.

One major rule with microwaving....Use glass containers. Alot of talk about plastics leeching into the food. Also, I try to avoid the microwave, but for a quick reheat 15-20 seconds wont make your food useless.
The key thing I do is go with cold meals for work usually. And as for it making the food useless, improbable. I have used very healthy microwave meals and grew well!
That being said, I am trying to get them to let me bring an extension cord and let me use my georgeforman grill at work
I used to use a foreman grill for lunch at one job. 90% lean beef patties with cottage cheese, flaxseed whole grain bread, green beans, and a cup of green tea.
I was envied. Then again I also did dips on chairs, and push ups for my breaks back then...

than you are getting more than you want and less than you need. Why does food taste so gross when it is microwaved? If it is just heating it up, why does it taste like **** and not the normal delicious way the food should taste? I personally don't use one. I thaw my meat out and cook it the right damn way. If your in a dorm, buy the rocket grill or something...learn how to cook healthy and it won't be so hard to follow a weightlifter's diet.
The study has many variables that can be argued...but the results look like what the food that goes in tastes like. I highly doubt the nutrition is the same as meat lightly seared in a pan or on a grill with a bit of OO or veggies for that matter.

So in the 80s they were unbanned.As a result microwave ovens were banned in Russia in 1976; the ban was lifted after Perestroika.

That's probably safe to say, but the real question is how unhealthy is it to rewarm food in a microwave.

I grew up almost primarily on microwavable food because I grew up with a single mom who worked, so I sort of raised myself and fed myself. I didn't whither, I actually consider myself above average.

Organic Bistro is probably the healthiest i've seen for microwavable,and the only thing that somewhat resembles/tastes like a home cooked meal. Sodium levels are on the low end which is a big bonus,i think the highest i saw on one was 250mg. The price tag is expensive though 6.00 per meal....ouch.

LOL @ whoever talked about "radiation". We're talking about microwaves here and he makes it sound like we're cooking with plutonium.

There is a difference between preferences and food that is almost inedible. You obviously have no culinary experience.
Also you have no idea what constitutes radiation or it's effects. I bet you think its also benign to fly in an airplane all the time...
