A dioxin chemical causes cancer, [U]especially breast cancer. [/U]
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic
bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Do not drink bottle water that has been sitting in the car.
Do not be heating our food in the
microwave using plastic containers...
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
The combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin
into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body...
Instead, recommendations are using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic
containers for heating food... You get the same results, only without the dioxin.
So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc.,
should be removed from the container and heated in something else.
Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper.
It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.
Remember a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away
from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons... Plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when
placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high
heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.
Cover food with a paper towel instead.
Worth changing the way we heat in a micro.
