I have done what you describe many times, although not recommended or advised by the manufactures it does work. Out of over 50 times I think I've had 1 failure that I recall and that was the bag tearing not melting. Use the good bags and keep the water just at or below boiling point, I never tried just tossing them into a full rolling boil.
I have read things from both sides everything from the carcinogens causing cancer to it's no worse than walking down the street with a cars exhaust passing by? So make your own decision, I will only say I do it,it works and I am healthy so far!
