    Ok I have been a big proponentof mylar bags, but several months ago I read something about mylar bags breaking down since after all they are a form of plastic. And that the best bags were metalized bags.

    Problem being I cannot remember where I read this and cannot find the websites. Can anyone help, with data links and true knowledge?

    Well if you ask an environmentalist,plastic will last 1000 years in a dump,so I'm not too worried about my food in plastic.
    Main thing is keeping the UV rays off of all your supplies.

    And where have you been KH?

    Mylar bags will work just fine for food storage. I think they are trying to market those metal bags for EMP protection on small electronics. A metal garbage can with tight lid would work just as good. Probably on of those doomsday hype products.
