Know These 7 Symbols On Plastic That May Poison You

Why is it that so many people won’t drink tap water, yet instead buy water, sport, and energy drinks bottled in plastic packaging?  Have you ever noticed that triangle and the number printed in the middle?

Why are so many people more interested in the water or liquid composition, if it is alkaline pH 9.0-10.0, etc., yet seem to gloss right over being interested in the chemical composition of the packaging that water comes in?

At the bottom of every container or package, look for the triangle with the number in the middle to find out how dangerous the plastic may be for your health.

1 – PET (also PETE)
These bottles are intended for single use. They may leach heavy metal contaminants, and a chemical substance called BPA, which interferes with the function of our hormones. They may also be carcinogenic.

2 – HDP (also HDPE)
This is “good” plastic which has the lowest probability of leaching chemicals into the liquid it stores.

3 – PVC (also 3V)
Leaches toxic chemicals and both have influence on hormones in the human body. It is the most commonly used plastic.

4 – LDPE
Plastic which doesn’t leach chemicals.. Most commonly used for making plastic bags as well.

5 – PP
One of the “good” plastics, usually white or see through. It is used for containers of peanut butter, jelly, honey, syrup, yogurt cups, and other food sources.
(best to get glass containers if possible)

6 – PS
Contains carcinogenic styrene. Usually it is used for coffee cups or fast food packaging.

7 – PC (or no labeling)
This is the worst plastic for liquid and food products because it contains the chemical BPA. Unfortunately it is used in bottles for infants, sport and energy drinks and containers for food storage.

SUMMARY: The plastics numbered 2, 4 and 5 or the ones labeled HDP, HDPE and PP, don’t leach chemicals. The worst packaging has labels numbered 1, 3, 6 or 7. The liquid and food in these containers are subject to harsh chemical and temperature activity.

To add insult to injury, when these containers are re-filled for use, it’s contents are exposed to harmful bacterial contamination. DO NOT drink water or liquids that have been sitting in your car sunlight and heat — these are the worst!!

How Acidic Foods Affect Your Body

MAKE SIMPLE HEALTHY CHOICES:  Begin  you transition by eating more  alkaline foods and drink plenty of PiMag Living Alkaline water every day to counter-act all the acid foods and drinks.

Consider these — Coffee is Acidic ! Sodas are Acidic! Sport drinks are acidic! Bottled Waters are Acidic! The Air we breath is Acidic! Milk and Dairy is Acidic. Many Foods we eat are ACIDIC! Yes, we can’t just stop them all at once. That’s why I recommend my clients to progressively ‘substitute’ and introduce these habits at their own pace.

Simply put — Our bodies are alkaline by design and acidic by function. Over time, the body breaks down and looses it ability to excrete toxins and metabolic wastes. Immune system is then greatly compromised. Energy level and personal confidence levels drop. Attitude becomes pathetic. Your lifestyle suffers. You loose hope. Sound like someone you might know???

LEARN WHAT FOODS ARE ACIDIC AND ALKALINE: This chart is a great way to begin your transformation.
