Microwaving? Use Glass

Before reheating that leftover soup, consider microwaving it in glass rather than plastic. According to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinell test, plastics labeled “microwave safe,” even those marketed for infants, released hefty doses of the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) when microwaved. Be particularly cautious of plastics numbered 1, 2, 5 or 7, which usually contain BPA. And don’t be fooled by package labels: “Microwave Safe” is not a government-regulate term.
