No plastics in microwave. No water bottles in freezer.
No plastic wrap in microwave.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in their
newsletters worth noting… This information is
being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical
Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially
breast cancer. Don’t freeze your plastic water
bottles with water as this also releases dioxin in
Dr. Edward Fujimoto from Castle hospital was on
a TV program explaining this health hazard. (He is
the manager of the Wellness Program at the hospital.)
He was talking about dioxins and the dangers they
can cause. 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. Dioxin are carcinogens and highly toxic to
the cells of our bodies. Instead, he recommends using glass,
Ware, or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, 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, however, there are
chemicals in paper. It’s just more safe to use tempered
glass, Corning Ware, etc. He said we might remember
when some of the fast food restaurants moved away
from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem
was one of the reasons.
To add to this, Saran wrap placed over foods as they
are micro waved with high heat actually drips poisonous
toxins into the food, so use paper towels.
Pass this on to your family, friends anyone who might
be grateful to read it.
