Do Microwaved Plastics Cause Cancer?

Last Modified: August 21, 2005

Question:

Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
I recently received an email claiming to have information written by Johns Hopkins University about the risk of cancer from plastic. The email claims that cooking in plastic containers in the microwave, putting water bottles in the freezer, or using plastic wrap in the microwave can all cause cancer. Is there any truth to this? I am having a hard time finding information about its validity.
