Living in the “Plasticene”: The Plastic Age

Anthony Jay

Plastic has become part of modernity’s make-up (literally). Scientific discoveries relating to plastics have earned a number of Nobel Prizes. Plastic permeates our culture, our personal care products, our environment and our awards. But do plastics adversely affect our health?

… Let’s start with bisphenol A (BPA). A 2012 article in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute pointed out that of over two thousand five hundred lab-tested urine samples, 93 percent contained BPA.1 That’s virtually everyone. Yet it gets even worse. The urine samples under scrutiny were from children six years of age and younger.

… What about plastics that are free of BPA, BPS, BPF and the entire alphabet of possible bisphenols?… Their limit of detection for phthalate analysis, unfortunately, was abysmal … This leads me to believe that many people deny phthalates leach from plastics because they aren’t measuring small enough units. Phthalates leach.
