The Bath County News-Outl0ok Thursday, July 6, 2006 STAEPO N~" CROSSWORD Proud members of the Kentucky Press Association Ken Metz, Publisher & Managing Editor Margaret Metz, Associate Publisher h.d.patrick, staff writer/photographer "13sha Thomas-Mitchell, Composition Catherine Farrah, Staff Writer/Composition Chrissy Hardin, Sales Rap Guest Co umn There is something 'fishy' about this! We have all heard the saying, "You can't teach an old dog a new trick." This is not true, because human beings are not dogs and education is not a bag of tricks. Several weeks ago I learned something from my friend, Mickey Cox, that has made life a little yllI1 more interesting and Davidson something I look for- ward to after he has taken me fishing~ To be sure, the majority of peo- ple who fish already know this, but I'm a little slow and the information that I am going to share has just passed me by, until now. Mickey loves to Crappie fish, and after he catches a mess, he can filet them in a New York minute. What he has taught me is that after the crappie are filleted, instead of freezing them in a milk carton filled with water, like I have always done in the past, you can wash and wrap ihe indi- vidual frets in plastic wrap place them on a cookie sheet. You then place the cookie sheet in the freezer for a couple of hours until they become hard. Then you pop them off the cookie sheet, and place the individual filets in a freezer bag. You can then take out just what you need or however many pieces you are going to cook. This way you don't have to thaw out the whole carton. Lest you think this is too simple to share in a column, wait a minute, there's more and it has to do with, among other things, plastic wrap, which can be very harmful to our health. Just recently, Johns Hopkins Medical Center sent out the fol- lowing information in one of its newsletters. 1, No plastic containers in micro. 2. No water bottles in freezer. 3. No plastic wrap in microwave. This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells in our bodies; therefore we should not freeze plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. If I have your attention, I hope you will contin- ue to read this article, because it contains some very important information that could possibly save your life, or the life of someone you love. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, wellness pro- gram manager at Castle HoSpital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This applies to foods that contain fat. He said the combination of fat, high heat and the plastic releases dioxins into the food and ultimately into the cells of our body. Instead he recommends using glass, Coming Ware or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So many things such as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc should be removed from the con- tainer 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, Coming Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from foam con- tainers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons. And here is the part of this article that really hit home with me, because we do it at our house all the time. Dr. Fujimoto 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. We" should cover with a paper towel instead. When I thought about this article it reminded me of the words contained in a song we have all heard, "I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose." While plastic wrap, bottles ~ con- tainers have many uses, they can ~also be haz- ardous to our health. Cancer causes a slow painful death, and what we don't know can kill us. Hope this information is helpful to you. LE (Jim Davidson is a motivational speaker and syndicated columnist. You may contact him at 2 Bentley Drive, Conway, AR 72034.)
