Generally speaking, fresh-keeping films that are not used for heating are likely to produce toxic and harmful substances during the heating process. Chemicals such as phthalates and DEHA are usually added to such fresh-keeping films in accordance with national standards. . These substances will produce carcinogens after heating. If you do this for a long time, it will easily affect human health and trigger a reaction similar to poisoning.

In addition, the cling film suitable for heating is not absolutely safe during use.
