One Word. Plastics

Quoted Text
Until recently, the abundance of plastic wasn’t a pressing health concern, despite being on our environmental radar. Now a growing body of research links the chemical bisphenol-a (BPA), commonly found in a variety of consumer products, to a range of human health problems, including a higher risk of certain cancers, reduced fertility, birth defects and diabetes

What does the PL in the title stand for?    Just asking.

Ah I just figured it out.. Why not spell it out? a teaching moment..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I keep and reuse for food storage every glass peanut butter jar, etc. that I have room for.  Don't use plastic unless absolutely necessary.  This also applies to the use of plastic wraps and bags.  Just read that, not only does heat start to break it down and leach, but ALSO freezing!  Any extreme in temperatures.

I do my  best to avoid using plastic. However, "my best" varies quite a bit as my health and family responsibilities fluctuate. I also have a nice collection of empty glass food containers to re-use for food storage, but I still often find myself storing food in disposable plastic bags because I just have too much to do and too little energy with which to do it. I don't make myself crazy over this.

I try to let food cool in non-plastic before transferring to plastic containers for longer-term storage, but it doesn't always happen.

The scary thing is...
- that even so called PBA free plastics apparently do still leach!
- juice containers (acid) are lined with plastic
- food tins (fish, oily) are lined in plastic
- butter, cheese (fat) come packaged in plastic
- water bottles that got hot in the car are totally toxic!

It is a jungle out there!!

Got myself some pyrex (glass) storage containers for lunches, but even though they have a plastic lid they do leak, so to keep everything (bag, car, lap)  'clean' I put them into a regular plastic box that does seal
Can still be messy, but at least it is somewhat contained

I don't really trust the BPA-free plastics. OK, so they're free of a particular chemical we know the name of. What are they using in its place, and is it any safer?

BTW:
"one word, plastics"  is a quote from the movie, "The Graduate," starring Dustin Hoffman and Ann Bancroft. circa 1967

I recall attending the movie with my church youth group.  I could never have imagined the role plastics would play in our adult lives and in world health.  Plastics do scare me, yet I sometimes use them out of convenience when glass just isn't practical.

I wonder what the church group thought about the movie?

But on a serious note, the worst thing is the water bottles in the car...

In 1967, I was 14. We loved the movie and the young priest who took us to see it. Even more, we loved our first glimpse into what would evolve into the '70's, when the rules of "the establishment" just begged to be broken. Most of the kids who attended Episcopal church youth group were pretty compliant,college bound kids, who would  hear about "identity crises," but might never experience one. For me, The Graduate gave permission to Question Authority.

Hopefully, that spirit lives on in those of us who continue to defy convention, preferring to think for ourselves.
