Was Paul Chek Right?

I have made it known that over the last few months that I believe that Paul Chek has gone off the deep end. However, I do not feel this means he is a stupid man, nor does it mean that that he does not wholeheartedly believe that what he tells people is right.
The issue here is, my dad just sent me an email that is supposedly from John Hopkins University, which seems to back up something Chek has been saying for years. Here it is:
Cancer News from Johns Hopkins:

No plastic containers in micro.

No water bottles in freezer.

No plastic wrap in micro.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters … This
information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.

Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases
dioxins from the plastic.

Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program manager at Castle Hospital,
recently was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about
dioxins and how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using
plastic containers. This applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the
combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and
ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass,

Corning Ware, or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same
results, only without the dioxin.

So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be
removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but
you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass,
Corning Ware, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away
from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that Saran wrap 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

Pretty interesting stuff. Does anybody have any comments or questions about this?

took 2 seconds to find on the internet


cycomiko, I have already seen the web page you posted, however, I don’t take it as an absolute.
NO need to give me a jeez, since I didn’t find it very hard to to find the link that you gave.
Problem is, somebody has got to pay for that website that you linked, so who knows how that answer is “paid” for.
Anybody else have any solid objective data on this subject?

TC has been giving us this very same information since the beginning of T-Mag.

so where/or what type of glass do i get my ice cubes from? and do ALL plastics have these toxins?

I think Chek goes off on the deep end, sometimes I think he thinks he’s a strength coach not a PT
