Basically we cannot imagine any activity without plastic objects. Shopping, in our homes, at picnics, all over these items have made the place and it seems that invades the everyday life of modern man. But the plastic materials used and reincalzite we can cause serious health problems.
So I decided to stop consumption of food in plastic "even if we were accustomed to live comfortable buying all sorts of ready products.
When you come into contact with heat, plastic objects exhale toxic substances. Numerous studies have shown that Bisfenolul-A (BPA),
most dangerous compound
of polycarbonate plastics,
We can seriously affect your health.
Bisphenol A (BPA) It is a composite (carbon-based synthetic compound) that is found in a wide variety of plastic products (eating utensils, plates, bowls, bottles, pacifiers, etc.).
Bisfenolul Of It is used for food packaging, beverage boxes, but also in the composition of household goods such as baby bottles, water bottles, food packs, sunglasses, bicycle helmets. Studies have shown that Bisfenolul A (BPA) may contaminate food or liquids that come into contact with, if they are heated in microwave, if you come into contact with hot liquids or acidic.
A significant amount of Bisphenol A (BPA) plastic is issued when the respective container pour boiled water or hot. BPA frees 55 times faster in a hot tea, for example, than in cold juice. Recently it has been shown that BPA release continues after hot water has been removed from the glass. Once triggered, the issue of BPA will continue to reuse the container, even if there will pour cold juice.
Another toxic compound plastic is PVCespecially one who is used to the girls. It ALREADY contains, a chemical that makes plastic flexible, but long exposure can damage the liver and cause cancer, experts believe.
No PET name for aren't healthy, their reuse result in leakage of chemicals. Furthermore, they may not be well cleaned, and wash them with hot water leads to the release of certain chemicals. Also, if they are frozen in the freezer, remove epik, a highly toxic substance.
How we can effect the BPA?
BPA is a destroyer of hormones and reduce the amount of natural hormones in the body can affect the reproductive apparatus and brain development (structural lesions of the brain), reaching up to diabetes and cancer. Among the side effects of BPA include: hyperactivity, aggressiveness increases and weakens the power of learning, increases the risk of obesity and fat deposition, weakens the immune system, early puberty stimulates the development of the mammary gland, reproductive cycles and break causing ovarian disorders, abnormal sexual stimulation causes prostate disorders. The highest risk posed by pregnant women because BPA cause chromosomal error even though the body delivering the baby in question is in a small amount. These chromosomal errors that develops in the fetus can lead to miscarriage.
Some bottles for babies contain BPA.
How we can affect ftalatii?
Phthalates are they involved in disorders of the reproductive organs, respiratory (asthma), can cause allergies, diseases of the brain. Moreover, the PVC content in the shower curtains up in toxic chemicals that 108 air can affect the lungs, central nervous system, liver and kidneys. In this way, the smell of your new House curtain. It can be toxic.
How can we minimize the risk of exposure to plastic?
1. Read the labels.
Advice from professionals is to check the recycling code on the package-you will find numbers from 1 to 7, the most harmful being 3 and 7. If you see Figure 3 or 7 on a casserole then it does look in the fridge. If there is no recycling on product code, your best bet would be to contact your supplier or the manufacturer. Manufacturers are required to indicate on the label the existence of the phthalates, except for perfumes. Phthalates can be use: Dibutylphthalate (DBP), dimetilftalat (DMP), dietilftalat (DEP);
Also not fierbei polycarbonate bottles and receptacles (type 7) nor do they heat up in the microwave; do not wash such container in the car.
2. Be on the lookout-four in the kitchen.
Do not use plastic boxes to microwaves if you don't write on them that can be used for this purpose and throw them out if they broke down. Also, eat fewer foods packed in the box or plastic.
3. Use alternative products.
Some parents have given up teats in favor of plastic glass and have replaced the plastic mug with one child all plastic, but no Bisphenol A or phthalates, or one made of stainless steel. Ceramic, metal, glass products are always available and valid.
4. Don't let the heat bottled water in PET.
Bottled water in PET and left in the car is very dangerous for the health. The heat causes the release of toxins from the plastic. Use a stainless steel container or one glass when you can.
4. Do not insert in freezer-filled with water.
Plastic releases dioxin into the frozen water. Dioxin is a highly toxic chemical that can cause cancer. It is present in small amounts in a wide range of products and material used in our everyday life: objects in resin, whiteners, non-organic pads and disposable diapers, as well as many packs of food.
And meat wrapped in plastic, packaging date product with the most recent, because some types of plastic sheets emit dioxin.
5. Take folic acid during pregnancy.
Studies demonstrate that this vitamin protects the fetus from any potential negative effects of bisfenolului.
6. Avoid bottles, bowls and plates of transparent plastic.
Are safe, the mate, opaque polyethylene (type 2 or type 4) or polypropylene (type 5).
1. Symbol: PETE, PETP or PET (type 1); polietilentereftalat (Thermoplastic polyester)-well-known material of bottles of water, juice, oil, sticlutelor of cutiutelor and cosmetics etc. Unfortunately, it is not healthy to use repeated PET. Reuse result in leakage of chemicals.
2. Symbol: HDPE or PEHD; high density polyethylene (type 2)-bottles for milk and juices, Stoppers, coasters, canisters (drums), ice-boxes, bowls, boxes of food, toys, etc.
3. Symbol: LDPE or PEJD – small density polyethylene (type 4)-meets at certain packages of cosmetics and hygiene, how are tube-type ones (toothpaste, wipes, creams), pharmaceutical bottles, sacks, bags and pouches for storing food, packaging foil, plates, glasses, bowls, toys, flexible etc.
4. Symbol: PP or polypropylene (type 5)-used in opaque containers or semi-opaque, such as some bottles, bowls, straws for drinking, some yogurt boxes, cosmetics and even baby bottles; If you really need to use plastic bottles, plastics for baby No. 5 is the recommended.
No matter how you try to eat healthy, this can be in vain if you are not sure that the kitchen and utensils to be some that don't eliminate toxins.
The dangers of toxic Bisphenol A (BPA) are well known, but it will take a long time until they will be completely banned on any shelf in shops ... but know all about Romanian "better late than never".
Four years ago, a study in the journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that there are high concentrations of BPA in urine, which seem to be linked to an increased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and abnormal liver enzyme concentrations.
More recently, the JAMA published another study in which American researchers from the Harvard School of public health have recruited HC for customized survey Bisphenol A (BPA).
Participants who ate freshly made soup for five days, had an average of 1.1 micrograms per liter BPA in their urine BPA and media, subjects who ate soup from cuti was breathtaking ... of 20.8 micrograms per litre!
