In this case, the only thing that is truly accurate from the Snopes article on this is that it is "true".

    I agree that we should always be careful when it comes to food. That is why I went to more technically oriented sources for safety factors of cooking in plastic.

    I like my corn cooked in the husk on either an open fire or if I have to, in the microwave. Actually, we haven't had a microwave for over a year, since we bought the new house.

    Thank You AC guy's Chick. I would have tried this. It makes sense though not to.

    I am somewhat a fatalist, so my trying something like that is absolutely no problem. Then again, after doing research on it, I don't even think there is a remote chance that it can be harmful.

    You want to be concerned about harmful? Start looking at what all of the processed soy in foods today can do to you.

    I really do not eat soy but if it's in a food additive I've already eaten it...lol....just saying all this plastic stuff we have now we sell to over seas contractors and it comes back to us in another form of bottle or container is your call weather to use it or not...I just try to buy things in glass if I can but I'm a country girl and I make allot of our food...canning veggies to meat and condiments too. If I had my way I would never leave the farm, but I have to see the DR. every 6 months and in this day and age it is impossible to not go to town ..I will look up the soy thingy , Thanks

    well looked up soy ROBO and the process is just who is doing it. We have grown soybeans before and I loved the raw green kind in the field & I roasted a few dry ones , very good by the way but I'm really a meat &(garden) veggie girl myself & have even been on a diet without any soy products...lost 25 pounds so far and getting down to 135 by the holidays... the trick ?...eating off the land

    I'm a big city boy, born and raised, now living in rural Lancaster county, PA. We grow some of our own food, but have lots of fresh produce and fruit farms all around us to pick up organically grown veggies and fruits.

    Being someone who is chemical sensitive, I too like to buy as close to coming out of the ground as possible.

    When I was in grade school, long ago and far away, we didn't have kids running around and going nuts in class. Very few over weight kids and none excessive. We lived on peanut butter and I never heard of peanut allergy. I never knew of any kid on control drugs.

    Something is different I believe
    I think somehow we are poisoning ourselves and don't know what's doing it.
    If I hadn't lived through a different time I wouldn't know that there is something wrong.

    I agree with one exception; we do know what's doing it. Overly processed foods with chemical additives and chemicals in our air and drinking water. Combine these things with how much longer we stay inside of tightly closed up houses and vehicles, and we are altering our bodies with a completely different atmosphere.

    Stop consuming and breathing chemicals and overly processed foods, and we will again be much healthier. What is really sad is that we in the HVAC industry have the means to really help, but those in our industry do not understand the issues enough to properly promote and utilize what we have at hand.
