Plastics, good or bad?

This is a good video clip to watch..about the dangerous contents of some plastics. I always wondered why a new shower curtain smelled so horrid. We take so much for granted and I never thought before that bringing home 'certain' plastics is not a good idea. At all. I'm learning. Any thoughts on this? You can click on the title to view the video clip.

Thank you so much, Maggie! I am going to have my boys watch this too. I knew some of the plastic things had a strong odor and we removed them from the house because I just knew that couldn't be a good thing, but I had no idea how to identify them. I will certainly be checking my bottles and plastic before I purchase them in the future.

Thanks again!

Blessings,
Lea

One more question ~ where can I buy Magic Sizing? I saw some in one of your posts and haven't been able to find it.

Blessings,

This is good info. I know you're not supposed to heat up foods in plastic containers in the microwave oven. I'll have to start checking for number 3 on my plastic stuff. I think this mentioned soft plastic pvc ... makes a person wonder about how pvc water pipes could harm a person too.

Maggie, our family just went through our home today and gathered up all PVC bottles and materials. I was really shocked at how much was here.

I am so disheartened, however, to learn that the PVC pipes in our home are contributors as well. We are just going to keep trying to rid outselves of as much as possible.

Thanks again.
