Swap Out Your Plastic Food Containers for Glass or Stainless Steel

Polycarbonate plastic food containers are made with BPA which has been under fire lately for its ability to mimic female hormones in the body (an estrogenic effect) and potentially cause hormone disruption, developmental disorders, and cancer. Reduce your exposure by avoiding hard, clear plastic (usually marked with number 7 or the letters "PC") and use unlined glass, stainless steel, or ceramic containers.
