Johns Hopkins Newsletter
>>
>> Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in
>> their newsletters.
>> This information is being circulated at
>> WalterReedArmyMedicalCenter.
>>
>> Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer. Especially
>> breast cancer. Don't freeze plastic water bottles
>> with water in them as this also releases dioxin
>> from the plastic. 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 how bad they are for us.
>>
>> He said we should not heat our food in the
>> microwave using plastic containers. This applies
>> particularly 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, Corning 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 but you don't know what is in the paper.
>> Just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware,
>> etc.
>>
>> Remember when some of the fast food
>> restaurants moved away from the foam containers to
>> paper? The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
>> To add to this: Saran wrap placed over foods
>> as they are nuked, with the high heat, actually
>> drips poisonous toxins into the food, use paper
>> towels instead.
>>
>> Please pass this on to your family & friends,
>> & those who are important in your life.
