I don't know if it is my age or the true state of affairs but at least once a week I hear about someone that has cancer. We receive information the says one thing one day and something else the next. So it basically comes down to what you can accept as an individual. What risk levels can you live with?
I decided to clean out the kitchen. The first thing to go? The microwave. Do I have proof it does something bad? No. Do I feel better not using it? Yes. I've always listened to my body and the microwave has always given me a weird sensation in my head. Am I crazy? Maybe, but I don't consider the microwave something worth taking a risk over. I use more pans and more time to reheat food but I've gotten used to it.
Next, I looked at my pans. I tossed everything except for stainless steel and enameled cast iron.
Next, all plastics. No more silicon spatulas, plastic storage containers, or plastic water bottles. I purchased stainless steel kitchen tools and glass storage containers.
