[Video] Can you call a cell phone in the microwave? A simple test that reveals if your microwave is leaking radiation

Yeah we know that Microwave is staple appliances used for
cooking or heating food. Well the question is the Microwave leaking the
radiation. A video has revealed a simple trick to determine if your microwave
is ‘leaking’ using just two mobile phones – but don’t worry, even if it is
leaking it’s unlikely to cause any harm.
The Physics Girl basically a Youtuber films herself
placing a phone in a microwave and calling it, thus demonstrating that the
oven’s protective casing is not impervious to radiation and that signals can
still pass through.
In series of simple experiments, the video also shows data
and Wi-Fi signals can pass through the oven’s protective casing, suggesting
that small amounts of microwave energy can escape.

The surprising results show that the casing is not a perfect
Faraday cage, which use mesh to block electromagnetic wavelengths from passing
With the help of hacker Samy Kamkar, they explained that
when the phone is placed inside the box it is unable to receive or make calls,
showing that the signals are indeed blocked.

However, exposure to excessive electromagnetic radiation
could be hazardous, at the extreme end of the scale, gamma radiation from
radioactive material can harm DNA,as can UV light.
