Does anyone have or know where to read this new report on plastic containers and prostate cancer?
I know this has been discussed before in the science field but last night there was a new study about certain plastics that when re-heated produce a hormone that has been directly linked to prostate cancer in rats.
With all these young men coming on this site I just wonder if this has merit. With many of us all continuously reheating our left overs in plastic containers as well as new health consious dinners like "Health Choice" and "Lean Cuisine" .
I have told my son who is in College to avoid this practice as much as possable. College students live out of re-heated plastic containers.
