BPA-Free Plastics are Harmful Too?
On Friday, while listening to one of my favorite NPR programs - there was a brief break for the news. The
news - that a new study shows that most plastics, even BPA-free plastics may contain estrogenic chemicals. I had a feeling that was coming - I mean, we all know that plastics leach chemicals and I have always found it hard to believe that those chemicals are not harmful. When it comes down to it, plastics should not be used in cups, food storage products or any food packaging - period. This is the main reason that Casa de Sweet Greens uses glass containers. Yikes.
Will you continue to use BPA-free plastic food containers?
Or will you switch to a glass, clay or ceramic alternative?
