Teena replied to Peter's discussion 'Microwave Cooked Foods'
"Yes, I agree with Gerri too. We heat/cook up a lot of food on the microwave. No problems so far. But some ready-to-eat microwable stuffs have chemicals like, sodium, flavorings, food colorings and preservatives that may not be agreeing with you.…"
