Water Bottles Causing Cancer Now???

Saw this on FB.

This is an article that should be share to anyone important in your life!
Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!
People should not drink bottled
water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.
Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please
be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.
Use a stainless steel canteen
or a glass bottle instead of plastic!

This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center … No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water
bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water
in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently the Wellness
Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain
this health hazard.

We should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers…..
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

The combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin
into the food.

Instead use glass, such as Pyrex or ceramiccontainers
for heating food… You get the same result, but without the dioxin.. So,
such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from
their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to
use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

A while ago some of the fast food restaurants
moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin
problem is one of the reasons….

Plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as
dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually
melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with
a paper towel instead.

Certain types of plastics that are heated can cause cancer. I had a college friend who worked in that sort of industry and he always urged me to bring my own water can *not plastic bottles* to school lol. But there's a number or letter on the bottom of the bottle. One of them is safe(r) than the other. I generally find the cheaper thinner bottles are the least safe.

BUT life is short no matter what we seem to do. Everything causes cancer these days. Everything contains something terrible now :\ It's crappyyyyy

Well, it's got to be true if it's on Facebook, hasn't it?!

After mere seconds Googling this, it is a hoax as I suspected.

Cancer Research UK confirms it's a hoax

Hoax Slayer also confirms it's a scam

I'd suggest you follow both Hoax Slayer and Sophos on Facebook. They are pretty good at letting you know about scams, hoaxes and other stuff on Facebook. You can also contact them if you're unsure, they will investigate.
