It’s good to see some research has been done to make a direct connection between the plastics we use each day, and the levels of chemicals in our bodies.
A study by the Silent Spring Institute demonstrates that avoiding plastics will reduce the amount of BPA and phthalates in your body.
Here is an excerpt from an article about this which appears at Rodale.com.
"However, just how much of all those chemicals actually get from your food into your body has never really been clear. Today, researchers from the Silent Spring Institute, a nonprofit devoted to studying chemicals in our environment that have been linked to breast cancer, are releasing a study that, for the first time, looks at how much BPA and phthalates we actually ingest from foods wrapped in plastics. By putting families on a strict diet free of canned food (cans are lined with an epoxy resin made with BPA) and any foods wrapped, stored, or cooked in plastic, they were able to measure the exact reductions of those chemicals in people's bodies—and, not surprisingly, found that people who avoid packaged foods have fewer chemicals in their bodies."
