How to avoid:
Check on the bottom of the bottle there is a triangle sign and there will be
a number on it.
If the number is higher than or equal to 5 –> then this bottle is safe to
Whatever number under 5 will release the chemical. For most bottle water,
the number is 1.
Did you know chemical released by plastic water bottles can cause cancer (It
is not the water that affecting you but the chemical releasing from the
bottle) Do not heat food in the microwave using plastic containers or
plastic wraps, especially foods that contain fat.
Combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food
and ultimately into the cells of the body… Dioxins are highly poisonous to
the cells of our bodies. The chemical dioxin causes cancer, especially
breast cancer. 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.
Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this also releases
dioxins from the plastic.
