Detox 4 Reduce the use of plastics in the kitchen

Plastics have “crept” into our kitchens and surround a high percentage of our foods.  Research links their use to a wide variety of health problems including cancer, therefore to reduce in the following ways makes sense:
1. Don’t microwave food in plastic containers, instead use glass or ceramic ware.
2. When freezing food, wrap in cellophane (Health Food stores stock cellophane bags, or buy direct via the Internet) rather than plastic.
3. Store food in glass, ceramic, stainless steel, enamel or china containers.  Toss away the plastics!
4. Don’t wrap food in plastic; instead use cellophane or paper.
5. Choose baby bottles made from glass.


About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
