Prevention is Healthier than Cure

Prevention is Healthier than Cure

The writer have come to say what he has thought and observed with regard to the issue of the primary component polycarbonate or building block polymer, BPA, as safe food packaging plastic baby bottles, and other important household products, after the decision by FDA to keep it and hurdle of consumer pressure scrutiny for alternative search at , I used to be member with.

Yet, the writer may not be a person with proven hand experience and credible academic backgrounds on the subject matter, nevertheless, short cut problem solving steps the piece’s view may lay from consumer product handling responsibilities perspective.

For example, scientists argue that BPA and phthalates are different from other environmental toxins like lead and mercury in that these plastic ingredients are endocrine disrupters, which mimic hormones. Oestrogen and other hormones in relatively small amounts can cause huge changes (comment section – structural mimic).  Hence, some researchers worry that BPA could do the same, particularly infants.

It may sound contradictory, however, based on these reports, while few government agencies have been quick to label BPA ' toxic ', others say it has not been proven that typical human exposures pose a safety risk and it appears safe at current dosages since adult humans metabolise and eliminate it more rapidly than do the rats.

It makes sense in all cases that consumers think of all plastic materials as vitally inert or due to the omission by food or manufacturing companies to specify such that it’s safe only when it is stable.

Possibly an exhausted construction worker on the road can walk into a store and grabs plastic wrapped sandwich and throw it in a microwave for some time. Similarly a couple with an infant on the road for a long week end trip could walk in again to warm up plastic made bottle milk rashly.

Besides to the surprise of the investigational science in action of the piece, it happened the writer stopped by local supermarket and observed roasted chicken on the go packed in few BPA made plastic containers with melting fatty oil tending to boil at 600 C on top of giant warming equipment. In fact, the food manager was approached if that was the standard temperature it had to, he responded yes. The question which will follow be:  how long was it sitting there?  Obviously now, anybody with an insight of chemical kinetics can imagine that as plastic ages or is exposed to heat or stress, it can release trace amounts of some of its ingredients.

Each ingredient is a part of hundreds of household items; BPA is in everything from baby bottles to can linings which meant to protect against bacterial Escherichia coli and botulism.

Hands were made before forks! The simple remedy is: public have to employ heat resistant like ceramics warming up material.

Otherwise, the pattern in question is that epigenetically many of the genes whose breakage leads to cancer may be susceptible to chemical intervention in the cloud for possible drug treatment or prevention is better than cure!

    The traditional food of Eritrea and Ethiopia called Ingera(Taff or Teff) is the secret weapon against many diseases

  2. Thanks Tsegai and Madote Eritrea for your article and view, actually we consume daily basis coffee on plastic capsules without knowing the real consequence of what we are drinking, almost the same way of preparation as you mention of the chicken. Better we change our habits and good for the "Prevention is Healthier than Cure"

  4. Thanks M. It is really informative and helps to take precaution. The second observation is it has diverted from discussing politics to social factors which is important to feed such kind of issues to build health society both physicall and mentally.

  5. That's why our wise and blessed ancestors cooked on clay pots ("Sahli" and "Jebena")... and served food on "Mesob" and "Agelgl" as well as on "Hilab", "Finjal" and "Kerni". All made out of clay, wood, straw/grass and horn. Folks, the future of healthy living is the past.
