Are Plastics Safe?

I think I’m about sick of hearing about how plastics are so horribly, terribly bad. First, it was just BPA, and most manufacturers got rid of that. Now, there’s apparently lots and lots of chemicals in plastics that might be just as bad. And it’s not just plastics! Apparently, some epoxy-coated metal thermoses are bad, too.

So, what are we supposed to do? I’ve heard of people going plastic-free, but beyond joining the Amish or becoming completely self-sufficient, I don’t see how that’s possible. I wouldn’t have guessed that even our metals are covered in plastic (epoxy is a plastic, apparently) so it leaves me guessing about where else plastics might be hiding.

You remember those commercials, years ago? “Plastics make it possible.”
