What cancerous materials Hope you didn't quote the professor verbatim. I agree with him tho. Plastics containing food should not be exposed to heat cos the organic polymers (ethylene, vinyl etc) could melt and be incoroprated into the food. Thats why its not advisable to microwave food/drinks in plastic containers.
