Disposable paper cups are 30 times more poisonous than plastic cups

Do you often use disposable paper cups when you are a guest? You may think it is "sanitary", but an experiment has proved that the concentration of BPA in disposable paper cups is nearly 30 times higher than that in disposable plastic cups. BPA is a chemical widely used in plastics manufacturing. Adding BPA can make plastics products colorless, transparent, lightweight, durable and impact-resistant. Therefore, most of the plastic bottles used by newborns contain BPA. BPA is also found in water dispenser barrels, plastic tableware and disposable paper cups. As an environmental hormone, bisphenol A has a similar effect to estrogen in animals, which is harmful to neonatal development and human reproduction.


However, many people do not know that BPA is not only widely added to plastic commodities, but also found in paper products. The content of BPA in disposable paper cups, disposable plastic cups and disposable lunch boxes was determined. The results showed that the concentration of BPA in disposable paper cups was the highest, nearly 30 times as high as that in disposable plastic cups. Pour the tap water containing 0.0855ng/ml bisphenol A into a disposable paper cup. After a few moments, the content of BPA in the tap water in the cup rises to 3.12ng/ml, which is 36 times higher!

Expert analysis believes that this is because disposable cup processing process is the most. Generally speaking, the more processes the product is processed, the higher the content of BPA.


Reminder: Plastic baby bottles need to be replaced in 8 months. In order to make the bottle cleaner, young parents often like to wash the baby's bottle with boiled water, or even put it in the microwave oven to heat and disinfect repeatedly. Experts believe that this practice will cause plastic bottles to release harmful BPA in large quantities. When the concentration of bisphenol A increases, the risk of neonatal infants increases, which can cause reproductive organ lesions and premature puberty. For boys, excessive BPA tends to make them "feminine", such as playing with dolls, speaking in a quiet voice and possibly suffering from ADHD. Baby bottles are best made of glass. In the use of plastic baby bottles, to be diligent replacement. Once the surface of the bottle is damaged, bisphenol A will precipitate, so the bottle should be replaced once in 8 months, and the temperature should not exceed 100℃ when disinfected.


Environmental hormones such as BPA, also known as endocrine disruptors or persistent organic pollutants, mainly come from the production of pesticides, pesticides, automobile exhaust, plastic products. Their "life span" is long. They can be accumulated in the body for a long time. They are not easily discharged or even not discharged. Some of them can not be decomposed even for 600 years. From air, soil and water to breathing, food and drinking water, they are everywhere.


Instead of using disposable paper cups, use glasses or ceramic cups; put away plastic fresh-keeping boxes and bags, and use glass bowls or ceramic bowls to heat food in the microwave oven; wash less with bath lotion, and rinse more times to reduce the residue on the skin.
