LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE/GIRLFRIEND/ DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE!>>>>FATHERS/SONS/BROTHERS/GRANDSONS/NEPHEWS also Please...

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!
On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said that 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!

This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center … No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water
bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water
in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently the 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 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.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramiccontainers
for heating food… You get the same result, but without the dioxin.. So,
such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from
their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to
use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants
moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin
problem is one of the reasons….

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, 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.

This is an article that should be share to anyone important in your life!

Viral Message Analysis– The message as claims to cause breast cancer is false and baseless. I t has long being claimed that chemicals inside plastic leach into food or drinks cause cancer.There has been also concern for the Bisphenol A (BPA) and dioxins in plastic bottles or plastic containers.

Yet this is just assumptions there is no evidence to prove that plastic bottles or plastic containers increase the cause for cancer.

Can the chemical in the plastic bottles move into food and drinks: As per research carried out it has been proved that even after heating the plastic bottles containers, having the food contents for long time, it has been found that the level of the chemicals moving into the food and drinks is much less, to be considered to be unsafe.

Some of these chemicals have been known as ‘endocrine disrupting’ chemicals. They can affect how hormones work. Many have suggested that chemicals in plastic can affect our hormone levels, and it may cause cancer. However there is no good evidence that this is true.

What are the chemicals being allowed than in Plastic: In different countries different rules apply, like in UK it is mandatory to follow certain regulations while making the plastic for food and for drinks? This is done to make sure there is no movement of plastic into the food or drinks.

No evidence to show that microwave food in plastic containers or covering with cling film can cause cancer: Here also there is no solid reason to confirm this fact that food in plastic container inside a microwave can cause cancer.

There has been no proof to confirm that Bisphenol A (BPA), Dioxins can cause cancer either.
