If you expose polycarbonate to boiling water, it releases the carcinogen
Bisphenol A at a far higher rate than the frigid 175F. However, I don't
think this was known when they chose poison plastic for the brewer material,
or else they would never have used health as part of their marketing pitch.

press pots and electric moka pot with the nice see thru polycarbonate

Maybe the coffee with neutralize the carcinogen effects -- at least as
far a the liver is concerned.
