Plastics are making us all into low-t retards.
Look, we already know that sperm counts and testosterone levels are dropping steadily, and have been dropping for decades. All our data shows that.
But no one is taking this crisis seriously, or doing anything about it.
It’s clear that something is going on. There has to be something chemical going on that’s messing with our brains and hormones and causing all this trouble. And more likely than not, that “something” is related to plastics.
Consumers turning to plastics made with alternatives to BPA in the hope that they’re safer won’t like what they’re about to hear.
A new study, published in the journal Current Biology, concluded that common alternatives to BPA caused harmful effects in mice, notably in their reproductive cells. The findings add to the mounting body of evidence that these alternatives carry their own health risks. As Science noted, if further research on animals and humans continues to support these findings, it could derail efforts to reassure the many consumers already nervous about the plastics in their food and drink containers that there are safe options to choose from.
B-but those BPA-free stickers are all green and shit, and they’ve got leaves on them, too!
Are you telling me these reassuring corporate logos don’t actually mean that the product is healthy and natural?
The issue has been one of major concern in recent years, in part because of the work of Patricia Hunt, the Washington State University geneticist who led the team behind the new research. She first helped draw attention to the possible perils of BPA—bisphenol A in its long form—after stumbling on them by accident.
The industrial chemical has been used for decades to make the plastics that food is packaged in and the resins used to line items such as cans. In 1998, she was doing a study using the eggs of mice when she found that an unusually high number of them had defects. She figured out that a temporary worker in the lab had used a harsh floor cleaner, instead of the usual mild detergent, to clean out the mice’s cages and bottles, damaging the plastic and causing BPA to leach out.
The new study tested the effects of BPA and common alternatives, such as BPS (bisphenol S), BPF, and BPAF on female and male mice. It found that the chemicals disrupted the way genetic information was passed down during meiosis, the division of cells necessary to produce egg and sperm cells in sexually reproducing animals, and suggests that the problem is with “bisphenols as a class.”
The new study arose from circumstances similar to the one that prompted Hunt’s first look into BPA. She had recently discovered that the normal washing of her new, BPA-free cages, made of polysulfone, were degrading to form BPA-like compounds and causing similar issues. It was “a strange déjà vu experience,” Hunt told Science. It prompted the deeper look into BPA alternatives.
The past several years have seen growing worry about BPA, over fears that the practically ubiquitous chemical affects hormones, reducing sperm counts and causing other issues. But what danger it really poses is still unclear. Groups such as the Natural Resources Defense Council have asked the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ban it. The FDA refused, but did bar its use in baby bottles and sippy cups. A recent government study found it not much of a threat.
All plastics should be banned from being used in food containers, at least until we figure out what the hell is going on.
We already have an amazing safe food container technology. It’s perfectly translucent, totally sterile and chemically inert, and virtually immune to wear and tear. You could literally reuse the same containers over and over again for hundreds of years, just sterilizing them between each use.
It’s called “glass.”
Great for food, drinks and dry goods.
All you’d need is a law making it illegal to sell food in plastic containers, mandating glass or paper or whatever other natural alternative.
This would be both economical and safe – reusing the same containers is obviously cheaper in the long run than making new ones every time, all things being considered.
Plus it would solve California’s straw crisis.
You can make straws out of bamboo, or steel and reuse them.
If standard containers formats were established, that were interchangeable between different companies, that would make things even cheaper and more efficient.
And obviously, this would be very ecologically conscious as well – far less waste.
Why isn’t this even being discussed?
I can think of two very important reasons.
First, the kikes want us to be sterilized by eating all our crap in plastic containers.
Second, putting everything in glass containers would make transport costs much higher. Which means that it would no longer be economical to ship food around the world. In other words, food production and distribution would become more localized, undermining globalism.
Obviously, both of those things are ultimately what we want.
So it’s about time someone started talking about this.
Ban plastic containers for food! Ship everything in reusable glass containers instead! Harass your local congressman until they introduce this as a bill.
Editor's Note: Also, support straw bans. I support straw bans. It is cuckservative faggotry to whine about banning straws. They should be fucking banned. All of this plastic should be banned. It is a fucking goddamn biohazard. The point of mockery is that they are ONLY talking about straws and not everything else made of plastic - however, it is getting the conversation started. -AA
