Even if it's not leaking microwaves it is emminating magnetic energy.
That stuff isn't the threat that microwaves are but they aren't doing
you any good. Either dissipates in proportion to the inverse square of
your distance from the unit:
1/distance x distance
So, you should try to make a habit of not standing right next to your
oven when it's on. Stand at least 4 feet away and you will be safer.
That's what I do most of the time, just to be on the safe side. I think
that since you've been told more than once that they tested for leaking
microwaves, you are probably OK on that score. Do you think these people
are liars or do you have a sense that they are being honest with you?
I'm sure that not everyone has microwave energy detection equipment.
