I imagine eggsplosions were not what you were expecting. Neither was I! My next video explores what I suspect is the more pertinent question for most: The Effects of Radiation Leaking from Microwave Ovens (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/The-Effects-of-Radiation-Leaking-from-Microwave-Ovens).
For another indirect risk, though, see my video Butter-Flavored Microwave Popcorn or Breathing (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/butter-flavored-microwave-popcorn-or-breathing/).
Microwave cooking is actually a very gentle cooking method when it comes to retaining nutrient content. See my video Best Cooking Method (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/best-cooking-method/).
