Just in case anyone follows the link and neglects to read thru the article carefully, thereby assuming that microwaving plastic and possible related risks are complete BS...
Here is a quote from the very article linked:
Dr. Rolf Halden of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health advises:
In general, whenever you heat something you increase the likelihood of pulling chemicals out. Chemicals can be released from plastic packaging materials like the kinds used in some microwave meals. If you are cooking with plastics or using plastic utensils, the best thing to do is to follow the directions and only use plastics that are specifically meant for cooking. Inert containers are best, for example heat-resistant glass, ceramics and good old stainless steel.
Further, the article linked doesn't have anything at all to do with bysphenol-A, which does in fact damage DNA.
