It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue..


Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her:
women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.
The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue.
So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.


Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us!

Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic!


LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE / GIRLFRIEND / DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE!


This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center ...

No plastic containers in microwaves.

No plastic water bottles in freezers.

No plastic wrap in microwaves.


Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies.

Don't freeze plastic
bottles with water in themas this releases dioxins from the plastic.
Recently the Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.


He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.
He said that we should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers.....
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.


He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin
into thefood.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramiccontainers for heating food.. You get the same result, but without the dioxin..

So, such things as TV dinners
,instant soups, etc.,should be removed from their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper.
It's safer to use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away
from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons....

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as dangerous when
placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high
heat<b id="yui_3_2_0_1_1318924975040148">causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food..[/b]
Cover food with a paper towel instead.


This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life!

Hmmm, sounds like one of those scam emails.

The plastics used to make drinking water bottles are made of PET and should not contain any significant amount of dioxins. I would be more worried about plasticisers leaching out of the plastic, or possibly even heavy metals from the catalysts sometimesused to polymerise the plastic. However, the biggest concern would be from the bacteria in thebottle of mineral water when left in a hot car for a long time. If it's exposed to lightyou'll probably even see it go green due to the growth of algae.

I really dont know. I received this email from an employee with the NHS??????????? therefore was not a scam to me, but as you point out it might have been for the employee, I honestly dont know, this is the first time I've read this.

I am not sure the text was big enough, can somebody post it bigger?


This must have been Sheryl Crow's biggest mistake, although a change from plastic bottled watercould do us all good. I'll get my coat.

Can easily adjust the text, but not the bottle contents? "Blurb"

The real issue is that re-using plastic bottles for drinking water, is a bit problematic. Plastic tends to break down over a long period of time, releasing various carcinogens. Now these ARE cancer causingchemicals, butwhether the amounts are enough to cause a cancer is unknown.

But the fact that you're ingesting them directly in the water you keep on filling the bottle with, should give you some pause for thought.
