(tranquil percussion music) – [Announcer] NPT Reports: Aging Matters. (tranquil percussion and violin music) – Thinking about some
good practical safety and kitchen tips that we can utilize, let’s talk about plastic. Talk to me, what do you
think about this, Meg? Tell me your perspective. – This is a great option because a lot of the items that we have, it’s either, you know, glass, ceramic. So, as we get older,
sometimes our grip decreases, so we have issues with grip or issues with, even, balance
with our upper extremities, so having glass, you’re at higher risk. If you do drop it, what’s it gonna do?
– Right. – It’s gonna shatter.
– Right. – So, if you use plastic,
you’re at, you know, decrease your risk of
having those items shatter ’cause it’s really hard to
see, if you do shatter a glass, those little pieces of glass on the floor. So you increase your
risk of cutting yourself. – [Tammy] Right. (tranquil percussion and violin music)
