plastic-teensSay it ain’t so. Even the compounds replacing plastic are shown to have adverse effects on children and teens. The alphabet soup of toxic chemicals found in plastic containers have been casting a dark shadow on peoples health. Most of us have heard of BPAs and how we need to look for BPA-free plastic but new research is showing that children and teenagers are registering elevated blood pressure and metabolic derangement when exposed to the plastic replacements.
