Swap Out Your Plastic Food Containers for Glass or Stainless Steel
Polycarbonate plastic food containersÂ are made withÂ BPAÂ which has been under fire lately forÂ 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 avoidingÂ hard, clear plastic (usually marked with number 7 or the letters “PC”) and use unlined glass, stainless steel, or ceramic containers.
