Does microwaving food make it lose nutritional value?

Like let's say I meal prep some egg and cheese sandwiches. I know they'll taste shittier, but are they just as healthy?

    Supposedly it's fine but I've always been skeptical of microwaves. It's unnatural.

        it's non-ionizing radiation you have more reason to be scared of radon, radiation exposure from stuff like brick, or living too close to power lines.

      Are the internet or jet airliners natural? Cancer is natural.

          To spell it out, being natural doesn’t dictate whether a thing is good for you.

    not per se
    heat destroys some nutrients
    microwave will pretty effectively heat all water in your food making it boil really fast
    some foods HAVE to be cooked though to make their nutrients available
    if you want to cook something it is best to heat it as short as possible

    Easy rule of thumb for most veggies
    raw > steam > pressure cooker > boiling / microwave > stir frying

      What? No. You cook food to rid it of toxic elements. Only plants have to be thoroughly cooked because they're incredibly toxic.
      There's no logic behind "some nutrients get destroyed while others somehow grow!"
      Fucking retard.

    heating food does this in general.

    No. If anything it maintains higher nutritional value than normal cooking. I don't use it because microwaved food tastes like shit

    Technically yes but negligible for regular microwaving. I worked for a company that was researching microwaved food, particularly in the context of cooking things with it. The microwave cooked food tastes like nothing compared to normally cooked food, implying that the microwave cooking process destroyed a lot of the good things in food,

      At least if you microwave bacon it’ll taste exactly the same. In most cases it’s the leftovers in the fridge which are reheated that taste bad.

    Is there any point to a microwave except to just be lazier? The extra 5 minutes to cook with a flame literally makes the food taste better so I don't know why anyone would bother.

    You don't lose nutritional value by microwaving foods but the absolute sloppiest of goyslops are also foods that you cook in the microwave.
