According to the rules of operation the distance between the person and the radiating appliances shall not be less than 1.5 m. in the presence on the body or glass of the microwave oven damage, its use is unacceptable.

There is evidence that prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields may cause biochemical changes (decrease in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate), which can lead to the disruption of the cardiovascular system. Acute coronary insufficiency, there are spasms of peripheral blood vessels, arteriosclerosis, impaired circulation of the brain, especially in people with diseases of cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine systems.

In addition to microwave ovens, the source of excessive electromagnetic waves that adversely affect the environment in the house can be televisions, mobile and landline digital phone.
