BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods. Some research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. This information was presented by Healthy Lifestyle Nutrition and healthy eating by Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.

Step 4: Fig.7 and fig.8 shows an actual plate of food placed on a china plate. If the food was left unattended then the food would spatter up on the walls of the microwave. But using a plastic food cover allows the food to be warmed up and not spatter food all over the microwave.
