Plastic poison has occupied 60% of our kitchen. In a recent study, it has been found that the phthalates chemical used in plastic increases the risk of cholesterol and heart attack.
In a new science study, it has been found that due to phthalate, plasma cholesterol levels in humans are increased and there is a risk of heart disease. Phthalate is a type of phthalic chemical composition, which is used to make plastic goods. The study has been published in the US health journal “Environmental Health Perspectives”.
Professor Changzheng Zhou, from the School of Medicine of the University of California, who led this study, says that we found that phthalate contains a chemical called dicyclohexyl phthalate, which in the stomach turns into a chemical compound called PXR. It activates certain types of proteins, which increases the risk of accumulation of bad cholesterol around the liver.
With the speed with which the use of plastic has increased in our lives, more than 60 percent plastic is being used in our kitchens. Phthalates are also used in heat resistant plastics used in microwaves. Higher temperatures inside the microwave increase the risk of that chemical mixing with food by 30 percent.
In the high speed world, we are eating most of the food either by cooking or heating it in the microwave and thus a dangerous chemical is entering our stomach, which is having a negative effect on the natural activities of the stomach. Our cholesterol is increasing and making us sick.
More recently, a very shocking study came out from the George Washington University of America, which was saying that the amount of Phthalates was found in the body of people who consumed fast food. Doctors said that people who were eating more fast food, pizza, burgers, cheese burgers and chicken nuggets, etc., the amount of Phthalates in their body was many times higher than those who did not consume fast food.
Now this new study is also warning about the dangers of Phthalates. The truth is that a large amount of dangerous chemicals are entering the human body every day from various sources. Phthalates are just one of them. There have been hundreds of studies that are warning about the dangers of genetically modified food (GMO) to dangerous chemicals used in agriculture. But the greed of man is so powerful that all humanity and morality becomes meaningless before him.
