Here's why you shouldn't use plastic containers to store or heat your food ☠️

☠️ Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a chemical used to harden plastic. ☠️ When plastic containers are heated this compound leaches out in food. ☠️ BPA has the tendency to mimic the body's reproductive hormones, they may affect fertility and the timing of puberty. They can make things worse for women diagnosed with PCOS. ☠️ Also, yes we do have plastic containers which claim to be microwave safe or BPA free however, heating food in plastic and using them to store foods can lead to leaching out of other microparticles which might have potential health risks. More research is required to establish a direct link however it's always better to be safe than sorry 😎 🌺So guys switch to microwave safe glass containers right now! 🌺 For storage use glass or steel containers. P.s. this rule even applies to your water bottles/ sippers 😬 It's a little bit of effort but it's just a one time switch so go for it guys😻
