Lots of microwave ovens have the fan and light come on when the door is open.
Do you know if the microwave transmitter was running when your parents machine was doing what it was doing?

I bought one of those EMF detectors you see on Ghost Hunters to check my home for EMF fields. Turns out, my microwave could bury the needle standing across the room. We got rid of it and replaced it with a Nuwave oven, which we bought on Amazon. It uses infrared light and convection to heat your food. Much safer, as it doesn't turn your food into carcinogenic goo. The food also tastes much better. Takes 4 minutes to reheat a plate of leftovers.

I've heard stuff for years that the use Microwaves was bad for us, but the story of the study carried out in the following link is very interesting:
There were all sorts of things flying around a few years back, ranging from it being an alien technology (yes, ET eats ready meals - after all, how many crashed UFO's have you seen with an AGA / fitted kitchen?), to them giving off radiation that cooks your brain or eyeballs etc., but none the less the article brings up some interesting points...

I guess in a communist country, where profits are not so sought after, there was not enough justification for the device when compared to individuals health.
It hasn't remained the same, as this graph shows:

Average lifespan is 77 in the US about. But that's not going to remain the same.
Forget the charges floating around the Internet. The "evidence" that microwaved foods cause cancer boils down to Hans Hertel's and William Kopp's claims. "There is nothing solid," says Lawrence Livermore's Jim Felton, who is also associate director for cancer control at the Cancer Center at the University of California, Davis. That may explain why scientists haven't spent time and money looking for a link. "I can honestly tell you that I have never seen a valid scientific study--and I pay attention to most of the cooking research out there--that has given us reason to test whether microwaving food could cause cancer," says Felton. "In fact, my research suggests just the opposite." Grilling of frying meat and poultry can create heterocyclic amines, which may cause cancer. When Felton and his colleagues briefly microwaved meats and drained off the juices before grilling, most of the precursors of those potential carcinogens were lost along with the juices.

Microwaved Water - See What It Does To Plants
You really should check snopes before you post stuff here, as it will save you some embarrassment.
Claim: Water that has been boiled in a microwave oven (then cooled) is harmful to plants.
