Dangers of Plastic in our Food & Drinks

Subject: Food and water safety message - FoodCare NT

Cancer Update from John Hopkins

This information is being circulated at Walter  Reed   Army   Medical   Center  as well.

No plastic containers in microwave.

No water bottles in freezer.

"Here your better using Stainless Bottles like the ones i have listed on my website which DO NOT contain BPA in the manufacturing of these bottles. Their lids are also BPA Free."

No plastic wrap in microwave.

A dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

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.

Recently, Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at  Castle   Hospital  ,
Was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.
He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the
Microwave using plastic containers...

This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin

Into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body...

Instead, he recommends 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.
He reminded us that 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...

Also, he pointed out that 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.

"Here i would cover them with a GLASS dish or plate rather than anything else. This is what i do at all times. 
I also never reheat anything in plastic bowls cups etc"

This is an article that should be sent

To anyone important in

Your life!

Bottled water in your car

Very dangerous.

This is how Sheryl Crow got breast cancer. She was on the Ellen show and said this same exact thing. This has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels in breast cancer, especially in  Australia  .

A friend whose mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and the Doctor told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be aware and just might save us! The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in
 breast tissue. Use a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!

The above info on Sheryl Crow i personally would think came from a number of factors NOT just the water bottle which was sitting in a car."
