Plastic: It’s In Your Diet
by Dr. Ben Lerner
Fruits and vegetables are healthy, right? Not necessarily—not if they’re wrapped in plastic, as virtually everything is nowadays.
Each day we eat so many foods that come in contact with plastics and phthalate (a substance added to plastic to make it more flexible) that the government has actually established an average daily amount that we can safely ingest.
Drinking out of plastic water bottles or microwaving food in plastic containers exposes you to very high levels of phthalates and other chemicals.
Plastics damage hormone receptors, hurt sex drive, cause fatigue, harm brain chemistry, accumulate in organs, and lead to illness. They’ve been specifically linked to cancers of the prostate, breast, lung, and thyroid.
Many plastics also contain bisphenol A (BPA), which has become extremely controversial and is illegal in some countries. Scientists are concerned that BPA, a xenoestrogen, is linked to certain types of cancer, lowered levels of testosterone, and other serious health effects like obesity, attention deficits, lowered sperm counts, and can cause early puberty onset. Problems can occur even at low doses.
Since you are exposed to toxic plastics on a regular basis, it is important to detox them on a consistent basis. Check out Vitalleo’s Detox Formula.
