Common plastic products make children fat

A recent study by New York University found that chemicals used to make plastics are endangering consumers’ health, and regular exposure to plastics or canned foods can cause children to gain weight.

Past research has shown that bisphenol A can cause endocrine disorders in humans by interfering with hormones, threatening human health. In order to avoid harm, the use of bisphenol S and bisphenol F as alternatives has been increasing, and is widely used in synthetic plastics, food and beverage aluminum packaging inner walls and thermal paper. Dr. Jacobson of New York University School of Medicine evaluated data on the association between bisphenol S and bisphenol F and obesity in children and adolescents 6-19 years of age using data from the National Institutes of Health and Nutrition Survey. It was found that children with high levels of bisphenol S and bisphenol F in urine had a significantly increased probability of developing obesity.

The research results show that as a new generation substitute for bisphenol A, bisphenol S and bisphenol F are still more harmful to children and children. Product substitution has not fundamentally solved the problem that such chemicals harm human health. At present, The only way to avoid it is to keep the children away from plastic products.
