Bad Plastic

Friends, check your kitchens for all plastics that have a 3, 6, 0r 7 on the bottom and remove them from your home now. We've all heard warnings of BPA and the chemicals found plastics, but this recent column by The New York Times' Nicholas Kristof highlights some real evils and cancer-causing effects of using these plastics, especially heating them in microwaves or dishwashers. Even plastics with other numbers - I am not convinced they are entirely safe. Sometimes I wish that I could purge my home of all the chemicals and toxic objects I know are malignant. Not intending to be an alarmist here, but I have personally experienced some of the negative effects of using bad plastics and would like to prevent as many people as possible from experiencing similar unpleasantness!
