The lifestyles we have embraced have left us with no time. All that we want is to let things happen in a few seconds. We are used to sending mail in the fraction of a second. These technological advances have probably made us focus just on work and not on the essence of reality. Coming to food, there’s hardly any time to cook a meal for yourself or for your family. We basically microwave it. Food prepared using these plastics react very differently in our bodies. They act like hormones and affect the biological processes that explain the cancer specialists in Hyderabad from KIMS Hospitals.

Name it and you have it everywhere. Plastics are one such thing that is used in almost every food commodity in some way or the other. Plasticizers called ‘ortho-phthalates’ are used extensively in the process of food preparation. To name a few -plastic is used as glues on packages and bags, waterproof coatings on cans. Microwave popcorn bags and infused into the cardboards. They are also used in the wrap and foam trays to pack meat. They are also found in fast food containers, plastic bottles. Studies have revealed that because of this usage of plastics some amount of plastic is entering the body on a daily basis.

KIMS Hospitals', one of the top cancer treatment centers in Hyderabad say that the chemicals present in them are being absorbed and can have very adverse reactions causing an imbalance in the body. Action has to be taken in order to save mankind. Plastics that are harmful and gets easily absorbed by the body need to be identified and banned to prevent life-threatening diseases. Some of these chemicals are known to block the production of male hormones such as testosterone.
