Video – Heating Plastics Could Be Endangering Your Health

Nutrition / May 7, 2014

Plastics deserve their bad rap. Use stainless or glass, and avoid cosmetics that list dibutylphthalate (DBP), dimethylphthalate (DMP), and diethylphthalate (DEP): they’re phthalates, there to improve scent longevity…not yours.

Transcript

Hi. I’m Dr. John La Puma with your Refuel Minute. Dustin Hoffman, in The Graduate, thought the future was in plastics, but some chemicals in plastics, paint, and pesticides, turn male frogs into female ones, distort sperm, and act like estrogen in the body. That can create more belly fat, increase insulin, the fat storage hormone, and make you gain weight.

Instead, first, try not to eat any food that’s been hot and has touched plastics. Second, don’t put plastic plates, cups, and bottles in the microwave or dishwasher, or drink soda from bottles you’ve left in the sun. Third, get a grille and cook for the week in just one day so you don’t have to stop for fast food.
