    I need your thoughts on how to handle a family member that keeps insisting that my thyroid cancer isn't a big deal.

      You don't state if you live near this person or if you bump into this person seldomly or frequently at family get togethers. If it is seldomly - then I wouldn't bother feeling badly about never speaking to him again.

      If it is a situation where you are often at the same family function, I would still go to the function to socialize with OTHER family members, but ignore him. If he walks up to a group discussion, excuse yourself and walk away... he will eventually get the message that you have nothing more to say ... the rest of your family will see what is going on and then can decide how to deal with him on their own...

      There is no reason to engage with someone family or not who brings out such negativity

      I don't use one to cook, only to reheat leftovers. I also use only microwave safe glass and/or plastic. I don't find it changes my food in any way, since I only reheat.

      Just to be safe I wouldn't use a Microwave but if you have to stay ten feet away.

      I use ours to reheat a few things. Not much really, but I have no fears whatsoever about it being a cancer-causing machine. If you look hard enough you can find an article or a study that says that anything causes cancer. Sometimes you need to look at who paid for the study and take that into consideration before you start throwing away whatever it is that was supposed to be causing cancer.
