.1 We are all aware of the devastating effects of plastic on the environment, but you may not know plastic also greatly affects human health. Chemicals used in thousands of everyday plastics leach toxins and pollutants into our bodies endocrine system (responsible for regulating hormone production), known as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). This leaching process occurs over time and there is no regulatory testing process on these products once they have left the manufacturing facility.
.2 Phthalates are chemical binding agents used to make soft plastic commonly used for toothpaste, shampoo, and cosmetic packaging. Researchers have linked Phthalates to asthma, breast cancer, obesity and type II diabetes, reproductive health and fertility issues. BPA (Bisphenol A) is a chemical added to plastics for flexibility and strength. It imitates female sex hormones and has been linked to breast and prostate cancers, liver enzyme abnormalities and cardiovascular issues. While BPA is a banned cosmetic ingredient, it is still widely used in many familiar items including plastic food containers and water bottles.
