Doctors Are Now Suggesting You Throw Out Any Of These Containers In Your Home

In this day and age, we receive constant reminders from the doctors and experts about what we have to avoid, especially when it comes to the things that touch our food. But sometimes, these warnings can end up confusing us instead of giving us the right information.

The Food and Drug Administration already knows and are doing their best to spread awareness about how bad these plastic containers can be when it comes to our health. These containers are not the only ones loaded with BPA and phthalates which is bad for our health, but also the containers and plastics that are labeled “microwave-safe. ” They can also not recommended to use.

AAP already published a report how these plastics can be very dangerous especially to young children.

Their statement says:

“(BPA) will act like steroid within the body and probably modification the temporal arrangement of time of life, decrease fertility, increase body fat, and affect the nervous and immune systems.”
