Plastic Bottles

IMPORTANT: Prevent Cancer, Don't Drink out of Plastic Bottles!

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!

On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said this is what caused her breast
cancer.. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high
levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue.

Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her: Women should not drink bottled
water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals
in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.

Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue.
So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been
left in a car.. Pass this on to all the women in your life.
This information is the kind we need to know that just might save
us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle
instead of plastic!

No plastic containers in microwave.

No water bottles in freezer

No plastic wrap in microwave.

A dioxin chemical causes CANCER, especialy 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 plastic releases
dioxin into the food and ultimately in to 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 wrap,
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.


from JOY:

Plastic water bottles are a huge source of pollution. Please invest in a good water filter (I love my Multipure) and get glass bottles, or medical grade plastic, and refill your own bottles.

from VIRATO:

Here's a question. Where are these bottles BEFORE they are on the supermarket shelf??
I know form Earth Fare that they are not refrigerated.
Fact is we get the dioxins (and other stuff) whenever we drink out of plastic.

I was the sales manager of a plastic company and can tell you plenty. There is a medical grade plastic that does not outgas, but this is not what water is put in.
