I recently saw a mythbusters wherein they tried to cook popcorn on a 10 kx radar antenna to no avail. I'm not buying it...

It has to have the correct fequency. Your microwave oven IS the right freq. It is designed to emit a frequency that interacts with water. Would require the same freq to effect the human body as it is 90%? water. It's the reason the food gets hot, but the plate doesn't (except for heat trsnsfer form the food), the food has water in it and the plate doesn't. Doesn't mean that RF emissions at other freqs aren't doing unseen damage tho. Cancer? Especially at high power levels.

You can tell the popcorn video was fake. Even if it looked super real I wouldn't have believed it. Same with the egg.
