Did you know…

Some plastic containers, including feeding bottles, contain an additive which makes plastic harder and transparent. When the chemical connection between that substance and polycarbonate plastic is broken, it mixes with the liquid inside the container. This phenomenon is accelerated when heating the plastic. Most people heat their food in the microwave in plastic recipients… The effect that these substances have on humans is still being studied but it is known to cause several health problems to animals.
