Keeping food fresh in the refrigerator or making it portable when you are on the go is a necessary part of our life.
But this could also lead to type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
The recent evidence of these container-caused cases of high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes has been published in two journals, Hypertension and Endocrinology.
The evidence points to a chemical in plastic containers called phthalates, which is a key component in the production of 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 the presence of phthalates in the blood spikes blood pressure. There is also 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 plastic pipes that are part of plumbing contain these chemicals.
It is important to make sure that when you use the microwave, you only heat food in or on glass or microwave-safe porcelain. This helps by being a little more environmentally-friendly as well.
It is impossible to completely eliminate exposure to phthalates, as simply isn’t realistic. However, there are other ways to not only reduce blood pressure but also completely reverse type 2 diabetes. And these methods are not difficult, nor should they be.
