Keeping food fresh in the refrigerator or making it portable when you are on the go is a necessary part of life for most people.
But this could also cause type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
Recent evidence of container-caused high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes has been published in both the journals Hypertension and Endocrinology.
The evidence points to a chemical in plastic containers called phthalates, which is a key component in most plastics, including everything from zipper bags to shower curtains.
It is also used in many cosmetic products like makeup, soaps, and lotions.
Studies cited by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have shown convincing but alarming evidence that phthalates in the blood spike blood pressure. There is new evidence now that shows they also reduce insulin sensitivity, causing insulin resistance.
And it’s not easy to avoid products that contain phthalates. Even the plastic pipes that are part of the plumbing contain these chemicals.
It is important to make sure that when you are using the microwave that you heat food only in or on glass or microwave-safe porcelain. This is a little more earth-friendly as well.
It can be impossible to completely eliminate exposure to phthalates, though. It simply isn’t realistic. But there are other ways to not only reduce blood pressure but also completely reverse type 2 diabetes. And the methods are not difficult, nor should they be.
