NOTE: The following (below
the purple line) is all a hoax… Proven to be fake on the Today Show at "Johns
Hopkins University"! They said...
"There are NO DIOXINS in plastic" but "Only use Microwave Safe Containers".

Cancer News from Johns Hopkins:
1. No plastic containers in micro.
No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out
in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
Dioxin chemicals 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.
Dr. 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.
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 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.
