Myth Buster: Plastic Bottles

Myth Myth Myth. "Cancer Saftey Update from John Hopkins"  Ha. Can't even spell "Safety" right - Low quality information.

FDA says plastic wraps and lunchboxes does not cause you any cancer if you use it with directions.

John Hopkins says these spam emails have invalid claims (Source: http://www.jhsph.edu/dioxins):

Using microwavable Plastic wrapping in microwave is cancerous.
Using microwavable lunch boxes in microwave is cancerous.
Using plastic bottles in hot cars or hot weather or in the fridge or refrigerator.

Do some researches!


Do not cook or burn plastics.
Use with provided instructions.
Do NOT do otherwise, or you will be screwed.

"Most single-use water bottles sold in the United States are made from BPA-free plastic, but some reusable containers are made from plastic containing BPA. Given a choice, a product absent of BPA should be considered. It is a good idea to bring water with you for long car trips and activities like sports and hiking. Since these water supplies are likely to be in hot vehicles and in the hot sun, BPA-free containers should be considered. Remember to clean reusable bottles between uses and let them dry upside down so they are ready the next time you need them."

警告全部女性放在汽车里的瓶装水对女性是非常危险的事情
警告全部女性 [妻子,女儿,女朋友等等。 ]

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous to women 

放在汽车里的瓶装水对女性是非常危险的事情!!! ! !! 

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 . 
这就是谢莉·克罗得乳腺癌的原因。她在上艾伦的节目里提到这是千真万确的事情。这已经被鉴定是罹患乳腺癌里的高危险因素中最常见的原因了,尤其是在澳洲地区。 

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

有位朋友的母亲最近才被诊断出乳腺癌。医生告诉她∷妇女实在不应该喝留放在汽车里的瓶装水。 

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
andpass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be aware of and it just might save a life. 
这医生还说热能和塑胶瓶子两者遇在一起就会产生化学物质而那些将会导致人们罹患乳腺癌。因此请小心并且千万不要喝留放在车子里头的瓶装水请把这信息传递给你生命中的所有女性亲友。这是一则或许可以拯救一个生命的讯息我们不只应该知道而且要多加小心

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!!! 

热能释放出塑胶里的有毒物质後,这些物质就渗入到了水里头,而人们的胸部组织里头竟然就发现了这种毒素。所以如果可以的话,切记改用不锈钢杯或是玻璃瓶都好 ! ! 

LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE / GIRLFRIEND / DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE.
请用力传给您的妻女朋友知道吧!


Cancer Update from John Hopkins

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
  
Please circulate to all you know!
  
CANCER update John Hopkins
  
  

No plastic containers in microwave.


No water bottles in freezer.


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 th e 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.
 
This is an article that should be sent

Your life!
