A new study published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, highlights food safety mistakes that many people may be making. Digital Trends reports the mistakes are made without understanding the consequences. The study outlines an increasing amount of evidence that points to the dangers of food packaging materials, especially plastic. It advises people against microwaving food in plastic containers or placing plastic containers in the dishwasher. These habits can cause the plastic material to release harmful chemicals. BPA serves as a hardening ingredient in plastic, and it has been associated with adverse health effects. They include heart disease and type 2 diabetes. According to the AAP, BPA exposure or ingestion can also cause harm to fertility, the immune system, and even body fat percentage.
