Edits: I do seem to suggest that microwaves are only absorbed* by things that conduct electricity. That's not true, of course. The changing electromagnetic field of the microwaves will oscillate anything that has a charge or is polar. I was trying to point out that microwaves can move electrons in wires. Even slightly salty water does seem to heat faster in my poorly controlled experiments, though.
"Absorbed" isn't quite the correct term, I know.
Oh, and kids, don't try this at home without your parent's permission. Many things do not like going into a microwave and will catch fire or spark or both. Your parents will be mad, and the fire department will be annoyed as well.

Ever wonder what would happen if you put a watermelon in the microwave? Or a lightbulb? Or a champagne bottle? We slowed it down for you so you wouldn't miss a thing. Real explosions…just not in real time. And yep, it's true. Microwaves ruin EVERYTHING.
Microwave cooking destroys food and destroys YOU !
Microwave cooking which has become very popular destroys food by actually changing its cellular structure, Andreas shares a simple experiment you can try for yourself and also speaks of its history and how and why it was invented and how it failed and was abandoned in Germany and Russia during World War II
Please do your own research and find out if what I'm sharing with you makes sense.
Teflon pans have been sold in our Westerner society since 1961. Chemically Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), whose trade name is Teflon can cause all sorts of health problems including child birth defects.
Of course no one in this day and age (just look at our financial system for one example!) takes any ownership about producing either products sold as foods or 'essential' cooking items sold, which also compromise our health.
GET RID OF YOUR TEFLON and ALUMINIUM PANS (don't even think about using tin foil on your foods either!) Caste iron, stainless steal pans are better choices.
Get rid of your microwave and buy a Crock pot and or a steamer. Ask yourself a Q, what would my grandmothers mother be using to cook/heat her foods? Start there. Sending love
