Reheating food in plastic containers
May 18, 2016 1:20pm CST
Before drinking milk, I am used to reheating milk in a microwave safe plastic glass. Once in a discussion with my friend, she said that using plastic containers in microwave causes cancer even though it is microwave safe. She said that we should use a glass container with a lid. Does reheating food in plastic containers in microwave cause cancer?

When you heat plastic the chemicals from the plastic are leeched into whatever you have in the container. So heating the milk up in a plastic cup in a microwave will cause the chemicals from the plastic cup to leech into the milk. And you will drink the chemicals from the plastic along with the milk. Mm yum yum.
