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.
I knew a gal whose ex made a point of telling her that you should NEVER cook in plastic, as when you heat the stuff in a microwave, all the safety and stability issues go out the window. Interestingly enough, he was a spin doctor for the plastics industry.
I have avoided immersing my life in plastics (as best I can) for a long time so I consider it ironic that I should come down with this...if it is indeed a causal factor. Mind you, I worked with foams and resins when I was in my 20's. As of today, it appears that Canada is discussing the banning of BPAs in bottles, etc.
