One thing to know is that one of the most harmful, BPA, has recently been taken out of NEW products, but not out of old products. I don't think there is a way to detox, but to avoid future contact

-Never heat anything IN plastic
-Never heat in styrofoam
-If possible, don't drink hot drinks out of styrofoam
- Use plastic wraps and cookware made of polyethylene which doesn't contain plasticisers. If the product doesn't make this clear, don't buy it.
- If you buy hard cheese wrapped in plastic use a knife to shave off the surface layer
- When you reheat or cook food don't let plastic wrap touch it.

- Don't wrap food in cling film; use paper instead. Immediately remove cling film wrap from food you buy and transfer them to a bag or container. Better yet ask the person on the deli to wrap your food in paper.

- Don't store fatty food in plastic wrap. Xenoestrogens are lipophilic (fat loving) and will tend to leach into foods with a high fat content.
