The dangers associated with microwaving your food in plastic containers are more serious compared to initial assumptions.
A new study has shown that apart from the potential impact of chemicals in the plastic, it could also increase the risk of diabetes, obesity and even infertility.
“The disturbing truth is that heat transfers the chemicals in plastic very effectively into your food. When the food is heated, the food touching the plastic receives the chemicals leaching out. Eating those chemicals can increase risks of cancer, infertility and havoc on the normal functioning of reproductive systems and your brain,” an Indian doctor notes.
