Thanks for the examples of radiation burns. There seem to be too many people
simply denying any bad effects. < just like the professor you mention >
To me heating of the body is just as bad as anything can be. If the cells
are boiled, you won't have a body left to speak of ! Short of that, it can
damage skin layers, nerve cells, or any extent depending upon your exposure.
If the damage is internal (internal hemorrhaging, etc), then you may not
even notice it ! It will just sit there as dead tissue and become cancerous
or infect and damage vital organs and eventually kill you.
As to the size of a fly versus the wavelength - that is another kind of
garbage that lots of people are spreading around. The microwaves heat at
molecular level. Anything that contains water will be heated. Therefore, if
you keep the fly inside a microwave oven long enough it will be completely
fried. I have seen it happen to tiny ants. If you put something dry or
metallic inside, then since there is nothing that can absorb the radiation,
the energy generated inside will cause sparking and a fireball inside the
oven. I saw a posting by someone who said that his daughter (child) put the
oven on for 99.99 minutes and the whole oven melted with the heat.
