The microwave is a common household appliance that is almost indispensable when you want to have a quick meal. 'Cooking I find easy and satisfying' - (Alexander, 2014)

However, how does it get the food cooked and ready to be served in under... seconds?

'I assume that they are not dangerous, as the British eat 1.6 million ready meals a year without any apparent damages to health, but I still have my doubts about it' - (Alexander,2014)

(Ocal, 2007)
Microwave ovens are so quick and efficient because they channel heat energy to the molecules inside the food. 
We are going to find out whether there are some costs that come with the microwave's efficiency of cooking the food. After some background research, we realise that the food is EXPOSED TO RADIATION. But in such small amounts that we humans don't die from. However, if too much is consumed, it could be fatal. 

Microwaves heat the food like the sun heats your face by radiation - (Chris W.,2014)

We are going to put the microwave to the test by microwaving water and giving it to the plants, and see how they react to it.

Our project will help us all understand what effect the microwave has and how it will affect living things. We will use the plants to experiment radiation on as they are living beings like us humans.
