An alert study for the chemical cocktail in our bodies

NS A new study published in the Journal of Environmental Pollution says the world is awash with potentially toxic products, mostly plastic, that threaten our health. The investigation revealed a mixture of chemicals in food, shampoo, makeup, perfume and toys.

The buildup of chemicals can contribute to an estimated 91,000 to 107,000 premature deaths annually among people ages 55 to 64 in the United States alone. That warning left a group of researchers at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine.

According to the results of the study, phthalates, a chemical compound that makes plastics softer and considered a carcinogen, were examined. Researchers insist: High levels of the bumps in the body increase the risk of death in people with heart disease. In addition, they are more likely to develop diabetes or be overweight.

The study’s lead author, Leonardo Trasandi, launched the appeal: “This study reinforces the importance of reducing or cutting plastic use.”
