#HealthAlert — Pizza Boxes Kill

with one comment

Pizza delivery boxes are full of health-damaging chemicals.

Three substances commonly found in pizza cardboard containers were just banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

These chemicals(PRASs) may lead to thyroid disease and ulcerative colitis. In pregnant women, they may cause preeclampsia. This is a potentially life-threatening high blood pressure condition. The substances remain in the body for years.

Scientists say these noxious chemicals can leech from the box into your pizza.

Last May, a group of scientists issued a statement warning about negative health consequences from repeated exposure to PFASs. DuPont, a leading chemical manufacturer, has already discontinued production of certain kinds of PFASs.

Container manufacturers use the substances because they act as a barrier that stops pizza oil from soaking through the box.

It will take months, even years, before safer pizza boxes are widely used. The FDA will likely allow the industry to use its remaining inventory of boxes with PFASs.

In the meantime, eating pizza at the restaurant instead of ordering delivery solves the problem. There are other commonsense ways you can lessen your risk:

  • Remove the pizza from the box as soon as it arrives at your house.
  • Never store leftover pizza in the box.
  • If some of the pizza has “melted” onto the box, cut off that part and discard it.
  • Ask your pizzeria to put a piece of deli paper on the bottom of the box before putting the pizza inside. Many restaurants do this already. This limits contact between the pizza and the cardboard.

 

Once again government health organization have allowed toxic chemicals to contaminate YOUR food creating serious health risks.

Relying on the government is stupid, especially in health matters.

Only you can protect your health.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

If the facts make you mad, it could be the truth hurts.
