The Danger of using Plastics in Microwave

Even though we are all in the habit of using microwaves, great care should be taken to use containers that are considered safe. According to health researchers it has been noted that using plastic containers and plastic wraps to heat food in microwaves are extremely dangerous to our health, because plastics when heated, produces a dangerous chemical which is very cancerous to the body.

The best alternative to using plastic containers would be to use glass and ceramic materials which are known to be safe when microwaving foods. Even if some containers are labeled microwavable and safe, it does not necessarily mean they truly are. It is always best to take precaution and use the right materials to guard your health.
