Episode 155 – Is plastic safe for our food and drink?

Today’s question is: “Is plastic safe for our food and drink?”

This is an interesting question about safe nutrition and is quite relatable to almost everyone. For example, do you use any of the following?

  • Protein shaker (especially with a metallic shaker ball)
  • “Chinese” containers
  • Disposal plastic utensils (forks and knives) and even plastic party plates
  • Cloudy (non-see through) plastic containers and cups such as those red drinking cups
  • Plastic water bottles that have been left in the sun too long.

If you use any of the above, you better read this article.

Hmm.. might be time to rethink that protein shaker….
