How to Recognize the Plastics That are Hazardous to You

Story at-a-glance -

  • A classification system called the Resin Identification Code, which is the number printed on the bottom of most plastic bottles and food containers, describes what kind of plastic resin the product is made out of.
  • The most toxic plastics are #7, #3 and #6, while those that may be somewhat safer include #1, #2, #4 and #5.
  • Ninety-five percent of all plastic products tested were positive for estrogenic activity, meaning they contain chemicals that can potentially disrupt your hormones and cause other adverse health effects.
  • If at all possible, seek to purchase products that are not made from or packaged in plastic.
