I just got this via e-mail. Don't know how legit it is. Looks legit though. So, being "fair and balanced," "I report, you decide."


NICSubject: Cancer News from John Hopkins
No plastics in micro
No water bottles in freezer..
No plastic wrap in micro

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in their newsletters worth noting... This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Dioxin Carcinogens causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Don't freeze your plastic water bottles with water as this also releases dioxin in the plastic.

Dr. Edward Fujimoto from Castle hospital was on a TV program explaining this health hazard. (He is the manager of the Wellness Program at the hospital.)

He was talking about dioxin and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Dioxin are carcinogens and highly toxic to the cells of our bodies. Instead, he recommends using glass, Corning Ware, or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He said we might remember when some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons. To add to this, Saran wrap placed over foods as they are nuked, with the high heat, actually drips poisonous toxins into the f ood, use paper towels.


And now, for "Bad News"........

At least run Dr. Edward Fujimoto through google to verify if it is a hoax before passing on bad rumors.

My last observation on this thread since the middle school crowd failed to comprehent the disclaimer at the start of my thread:

Oh, I understood it just fine. I read, "I got this in e-mail", and thought, "Hm... good chance it's bullshit." Then, I read, "freeze water... get cancer"... and, well, from then on I've just been chuckling.

It never fails to amaze me how "THE TOTALLY BEATEN" grabs at any straw to feel victorious.

You'd have to spend more time in D.C. to get it I think. Cranky is always letting us know that he is the god of political discourse and that he has always destroyed everyone he's debated, and that he is such a supreme intellect that we are not worthy of him even replying to us.

Interestingly though, you've seen the living legend's signature move here, to call you an ape or a grade-schooler.
