For years I have told everyone who would listen about the dangers of plastic.  Friends think it's odd that I do not own any plastic food storage containers, no plastic glasses, cups, forks or water bottles, avoiding plastic whenever possible. I buy glass bottles instead of plastic,  I save and reuse glass jars and  my water bottle is stainless steel.  Plastic is everywhere, we can't get away from it.  But we can avoid exposure to plastic when possible.

I am not a finatic but I am aware and determined to spread the word.  Some research, usually funded by the plastic manufacturers, shows there is no danger from exposure to plastic.  Other independent studies shows serious dangers from ingesting plastic.  Different studies, conflicting results. 

 Be aware, read some articles, get the facts.  If there is any chance it is true, we have to stop giving our children plastic water bottles, sippy cups, toys, pacifiers, food containers, etc. 

The dangers of plastic gets very little press considering what a huge issue it is.  When I talk about it I can tell most people prefer to ignore the research. 

  My assistant bought some cooking oil in a plastic bottle to use for a party.  A week later, I opened the bottle and I could smell plastic and the oil tasted like plastic.  People have gotten used to the taste of plastic in drinks and food and continue to ingest the dangers chemicals used in manufacturing plastic.

Below are three links to articles about dangers of plastic.  There are hundreds of articles on the subject.  I urge you to read at least enough to know that when you microwave food, use glass.
