  • 6. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • A dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
  • 7. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • 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.
  • 8. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • Recently,... 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.
  • 9. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers... This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
  • 10. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body...
  • 11. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • 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.
  • 12. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.
  • 13. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • 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.
  • 14. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • 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...
  • 15. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
  • 16. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.
  • 17. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
    • Cover food with a paper towel instead.
  • 18. Cancer Update from John Hopkins
