plastic is bad.
Plastic is a disease.
let’s get to the point – plastic is not good for our health. our blood and tissues are already replete with the toxic chemicals born out of plastic. chemicals like BPA, DEHP and PVC that are present in all plastic items cause an increased risk of birth defects, obesity, cancer, suppressed immune system and other long-term chronic diseases.
a Bad bad disease.
Plastic manipulates the endocrine system. If you have serious mood problems, body temperature issues, heart rate fluctuations, erratic sleep patterns, oscillating blood pressure and testosterone levels, then we would like to congratulate you. Why? Because the flight of your life has been hijacked by plastic.
And the problem’s really big.
how big? the problem is “mr. stark, i don’t feel so good” big. yes, that big. because plastic is everywhere. even the keyboard we used to write this rant is made of plastic. and every piece of plastic item you use has those toxic chemicals. yes, even the red, blue, green containers of your mom’s dreams are toxic.
It’s also creepy, It never leaves.
just in India, we dump 6 million tonnes of plastic every year.
that’s almost equal to 116 titanics – the boat that sank. plastic takes gazillion years to decompose, and throughout that time it keeps on contaminating natural resources. and then they come back. but not as gandalf the white, they come back to us through our food and water.
