Case for concern about plastics


Share post:

WITH ALL THE health problems that we are facing in Barbados, I wonder if any research has ever been done on the usage of plastic, as far as food and drink containers are concerned.

It has been stated that plastic is made of toxic materials and that these toxins leach into whatever they come in contact with.

The compounds that make up plastic, as published, when ingested, can damage your body on a cellular level and cause health problems.

As we know, plastic is used practically in most everything we use on a day-to-day basis. Perhaps there may be a reason for concern.
