In addition to sugar alcohols such as “maltitol” or “isomalt”, “sorbitol” written by journalist and writer Soner Yalçın in his book “Hidden Elections”, the damage of “phthalate”, which is now in the containers of foods that are eaten outside, it has been revealed.
Synthetic chemicals called phthalates, which are found in hundreds of consumer products, such as food storage packaging, shampoo, makeup, perfumes and children’s toys, can be the cause of 100,000 deaths between the ages of 55 and 64. years. result of a study conducted in the US.
According to a new study published in the journal Environmental Pollution, people exposed to high levels of phthalates have a higher risk of premature death than death from cardiovascular disease.
MAY CAUSE SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT EFFECTS
Research suggested that this could cost the United States between $ 40 billion and $ 47 billion each year due to the loss of economic productivity. Professor of Environmental Medicine Dr. “This study adds to previous research on the impact of plastic on the human body and shows the steps that need to be followed to reduce or eliminate the use of plastic,” Leonardo Trasande said. “said. Although phthalates have been found to interfere with the body’s hormone production mechanism, known as the endocrine system, they have also been linked to” developmental, reproductive, brain, immune and other problems. ” , according to research conducted at NYU Langone Health in New York.
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences also noted the use of phthalates, noting that even minor research-related hormonal alterations can cause “significant biological and developmental effects.”
CAUSES REPRODUCTIVE PROBLEMS IN MEN
Previous research on the subject has revealed that phthalates are associated with reproductive problems, such as genital malformations in children and a low sperm count and testosterone levels in adult men. In addition, phthalates have been linked to childhood obesity, asthma, cardiovascular problems, and cancer.
“These chemicals have a previous criminal record,” said Trasande, who also heads NYU Langone’s Environmental Risk Research Center. and said all of these results were “worrying.”
Widely used, phthalates are also used in consumer products such as PVC plumbing, vinyl, rain and stain resistant products, medical tubes, garden hoses, food utensils, shampoos, detergents and some children’s toys for make the plastic more flexible and non-breakable. .
GREAT DANGER FOR CHILDREN
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people are exposed to phthalates when they breathe polluted air or eat or drink food that has been in contact with plastic. Although U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that, most importantly, children should stay away from phthalate-containing chemicals, “children touch a lot of things as they crawl and get their hands on the mouth. Because of this behavior of children, they are more exposed to phthalate particles in the dust. This situation can pose a greater risk for children than for adults.
