Plastic Poison and Plastic Pollution
While plastics made from petroleum products are a relatively new invention they have become a major part of almost every facet of the world we live in. Many researchers and scientists are discovering that the chemicals in plastics are harming us and the world we live in. While many companies and people want you to believe plastics are beneficial, necessary and safe there are many people who are questioning the sanity and wisdom of so many plastic products in our lives. Unfortunately it is well documented that chemicals in plastics are well documented to damage our bodies and brains. Evidence indicates they can cause us to experience disease, hormonal issues, immune system dysfunction, sickness, weakness and even death. Chemicals in plastics can cause serious harm and death depending on the amount duration and type of exposure. All chemicals in plastic have serious consequences and side effects over time.
Many people are discovering that chemicals in plastics are not healthy or normal even if they appear useful for improving various area of our lives. They feel that we are being overloaded, overwhelmed and over poisoned by the excessive over use and misuse of plastics in so many products in our lives. Significant evidence is indicating that chemicals in plastics are the major factors involving health hazards, poisons and toxins which are the major contributors to the death, deformities, disabilities and disease we see around us. We are currently experiencing an avalanche of health issues since companies and scientists began unleashing a tsunami of plastics made with hazardous chemicals and synthetic compounds into almost every aspect of our daily lives. We are literally surrounded by plastic toxins in our air, clothing, food, homes, land, water and work sites.

My years of research for the best health, nutrition and wellness programs and protocols has lead me to some great ideas, insights and inspiration for preventing and protecting against various plastic health hazards. My research has directed me to finding great resources and role models to help improve our health in a holistic way long term.
Chemicals in Plastics are Health Hazards
Many of the top chemicals and synthetic compounds found in plastics are serious health hazards. Unfortunately there are usually no legal disclosures, labels, warnings and waivers regarding the health hazards found in plastics. Common chemicals and synthetic compounds found in plastics include: BPA, BPS, HDPE, LDPE, Dioxins, PCB’s, DDT, Polyethylene, Phthalates and PVC. Most of these are known to be endocrine disruptors and probable carcinogens. Unfortunately plastics have been deployed, designed and developed to be in almost every aspect of our lives. Plastic poisons and plastic pollution are affecting the air, land and waters of the world and thus harming all creatures large and small.
- Chemicals in plastics are used for building and treating apartments and homes.
- Fabrics and materials for carpets, cars, clothing, furniture and homes use plastics and synthetic fabrics.
- Communities use massive amounts of plastics with chemical additives in building various infrastructures.
- Petroleum products are made into various plastics and use large amounts of chemicals, and synthetic compounds harmful to our health
- Plastic is one of the most common packaging materials and the majority seems to be winding up as either land fill or plastic pollution.
Plastic bags and bottles are winding up as plastic poison and plastic pollution around the globe and contaminating our lakes, rivers and oceans. If Zanzibar can ban plastic bags what can your country do to eliminate plastic? Belize could learn a lot from Zanzibar because Belize has done very little to stop the use of plastic bags and bottles which are a danger and eye sore to the people and wildlife of beautiful Belize.
The top sources of plastic poisons and plastic pollution include common products like plastic bags, bottles, car parts, carpets, clothing, coatings, containers, fabrics, jars, material, packing material, pipes, plumbing, storage containers, toys and water bottles.
