Keep Plastic Out of the Microwave

Some plastics contain chemicals that, when heated, can get easily transferred into your food. In one study, after being heated in a microwave, 95% of plastics tested positive for synthetic estrogen. Even some BPA-free plastics have been shown to contain synthetic estrogens, which can disrupt your hormones’ natural balance, reprogram individual genes, and may even cause diseases in future generations.*

When possible, opt for glass containers to store your food. Glass mason jars are a trendy and sustainable substitute for plastic containers. If you must use plastic, be sure to transfer your food into a glass bowl or onto a non-plastic plate before heating it up in the microwave.
