Hi Deanne,

 

I recently spoke to a group about "Healthy Aging" and the topic came up about drinking water from plastic bottles and also microwaving in glass or paper vs plastic.

Specifically...I thought that plastic water bottles that are #1 or 2 are preferable to the type that you buy already filled, usually # 7 or 8.

Do you have definitive information or can you give me a source for further information?

I only know that harmful estrogen-like (possibly carcinogenic) substances can leach out of the plastic into our body. I'd like to know more details.

I remember a conversation at dinner the night of our concert.

Bleach, PVC, aluminum, teflon, microwave,

HI pauline.

I don't really know the definitive answers to your questions, but I would like to put together a little information sheet on some key things people would want to know, and the alternatives.

for instance, what is not good about styrofoam, and where they could buy good biodegradable alternatives, or carry their own non-plastic containers.

What are the key carcinogenic elements of our lives. styrofoam, dioxins in ......, bleach,

plastic #3....I would need to research. Want to do this together and make up a sheet and post it on my wiki for others to print out and distribute? www.strawbale.pbwiki.com

its so easy to make one, and free. a good way to do your writing I think.

We are having a party saturday, dec 16, 7 pm for a bonfire and hang out and finger food.

Please come if you can. all are welcome. overnight is ok.

love, d

Hope to see you next Sunday,

Hi Deanne,

 

Hope your hip is feeling better. I did get a massage today, (Christmas gift from my son and his wife) and feel so much better.

 

I checked out Wikipedia today for the first time ever. It took me a while to find it, but there is information about the harmful effects of xenoestrogens (chemical estrogen-like substances)

I first went to Breast Cancer and found Prevention of environmental causes of cancer and went on from there. It's pages and pages of very dense and not very reader friendly material all about PVCs and phthalates. Finally on page 15 of the article on xenoestrogens there is a nice little summary of "what do we do?" Number 1 on that list is: "Use glass or ceramics to store food and water. Also use glass or ceramic containers to heat food." (doesn't say microwave, but it sound like that's what they mean?) I guess that would be something to check out. I will keep on going and see what else I find. I probably should read about "How to use Wikipedia."

What is your vision of this project? What would you like to see?

Let me know when you'll be in AA. Maybe we can have lunch.

 

Love,

 

Pauline
