i had always thought that aluminum foil in a microwave was a     no-no, especially after i forgot and left a piece over my food.  the popping and the flames on the foil were quite a show!

I totally disagree With this person like you don't know what your talking about like I ready just like a three sentences into what you said and I disagree already

Studies shows that microwave food is very bad for you especially when heating with plastic containers. There was also a study of two plants they gave one of them regular and the other microwaved water and guess what happen to the plant that had microwave water it died in a couple of days. I don't even want to get into why it die but just think about that.

This is a very poor answer and this is the reason many people fail exams! The questioner simply want to know whether heating 'uncover food in microwave' is bad for someone-e.g due to radiation, waves etc. He's NOT asking for reasons why one should cover the food!
