How Safe Is The Plastic???

We use plastic most of the time as wrappers and container for food. Have you ever think, is the plastic are safe to be use? I've received numerous e-mails from my friends about how hazardous the plastic to us.

Plastic are use to wrap most food and drinks. Plastic bowls and cups are being use to serve the hot boiling soups and hot drinks at certain restaurant. When thinking of this, it really scared me. If plastic are not safe to be use, then what I'm suppose to eat?? Most of the food are wrapped in plastic.

The milk bottle are made from plastic too. What will happen to all babies and us in future ???

Bread wrapped in plastic

Sandwich in plastic box
Plastic disposable cup
Plastic bowl? Serve the hot soup somemore. . .
Ais bandung wrapped in plastic
Plastic water bottles

A message that u must not ignore.

Did you ever drink from a plastic bottle and see a triangle symbol on the bottom with a number inside?

This is what I most concern :

I have use this Felton water bottles for quite sometime and I have bought this bottles for my kids too. From the e-mail forwarded to me. It stated there that the worst water bottle are the one with no. 3,6 & 7 and this Felton bottles are the no.7 ~huh!!!

Most of the plastic bottle will have a triangle sign with the number inside. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7

Do you know what the number stands for? Did you guess that it's just for recycling?
Then you are WRONG !!!!!!

Actually plastic is not really safe to use when it's used with hot water... But nowadays, it's more convenient and cheaper to use plastic stuff...
