Is Plastic harmful and what can we do about it?

There’s has been a lot of hype about whether plastic is harmful to man and that man made products in the environment that could be

Is plastic harmful to man and if so what can we do about it?

causing some pretty frightening problems such as: obesity, breast cancer, thyroid

issues. These products seem to be just about everywhere: in pesticides cosmetics but

especially in plastic packaging. In the light of this it’s understandable to start

worrying and asking is plastic harmful and id so what can we do about it. but before you do let’s hear what

molecular biologist Bruce Bloomberg has to say on the subject he’s been studying

the link between synthetic chemicals and obesity for around 15 years. so he should

be able to give us a better idea of what’s really going on and what to do about it.

The answer to is plastic harmful? is unfortunately yes.

The bad news is Bloomberg confirmed that as we feared

we’re surrounded by these chemicals. One of the most well known or infamous is BPA or

bisphenol A. This is present in water bottles, cans, milk cartons, and more you

get from thermal paper receipts like I have I have these receipts from a recent

trip all of these things are coated with bisphenol A and it goes right into your

skin. BPA has been making headlines for years

about whether or not it’s harming us and while FDA funded and independent studies

have conflicting conclusions the bigger heart of the issue is this BPA is hard

to get away from because it’s a key building block in the tough clear

flexible plastic called polycarbonate. That proximity to food is what

concerned scientists like Bloomberg you don’t want to store food in plastics

because some fraction of those plastics will leak into your food. The BPA

molecules that make up plastic are bound together by what’s called an ester bond

which is extremely sensitive to heat so when you heat up your food and plastic

that heat breaks some of the bonds releasing the chemicals into your food. A

survey by the CDC of 2517 people estimated that over 90% of

Americans have detectable levels of BPA in their urine and BPA isn’t alone

phthalates which make plastic flexible can also leach into food when heated.

Reviews of hundreds of studies have linked BPA and phthalates to heart

disease obesity and type 2 diabetes. Not to mention a 2015 review linked

phthalates with impaired neurological development in children which in 2018

prompted the American Academy of Pediatrics to announce that families

should avoid plastic food containers entirely. Other studies on animals

like mice and monkeys have shown that these chemicals can lead to problems in

the lungs, brains and reproductive organs. This is about the time someone like me

would probably panic.However there is a proven product on the market that can clear

your body of bisphenol a. The good news is that this product is 100% natural and acts 

by breaking the bond between the bisphenol a and the human fat where it’s stored. 

Not only will your body be cleaned of this toxic illness provoking product

 but many people experience a sense of well being. 

A cure of a few days will clean your system and then if you just take it from 

time to time the bisphenol a can never build up in your system again.

Of course if you can also take steps to avoid these chemicals its better. Bloomberg

suggests it’s best to just stick to heating your food in anything but

plastic now quick aside bpa-free plastic containers aren’t the answer because

research suggests that bps and BPF the most common replacements for bpa might

have similar effects on your body instead opt for replacements like

ceramic or glass containers you have to do the best you can and it makes sense

to me to do the things that give you the most return for the least effort and

here’s the best part once you reduce exposure those chemicals slowly leave

your body as bloomberg says they’re stored in fat cells which eventually die

and ultimately leave your system don’t stress about it right do your best and

make conscious choices to improve things
