We’re overdue for hearing about something that can kill us.
So, here we go – the first one of the year 2016!
Experts are now saying that your pizza box could kill you!
The FDA in the States is now banning three types of chemicals that repel moisture and grease – chemicals that are found in food packaging like pizza boxes. The chemicals are considered to be toxic to humans because they’ve been linked to cancer, birth defects and other health problems.
Don’t order pizza? Well, those chemicals are also found in microwave popcorn bags, waxy pastry bags, tents and carpet cleaners.
I’ve been trying to find out if Canada is also banning them but have not been able to find any information. When I do, I’ll let you know!
But, in the meantime, as Charlie Brown used to say, “The secret to life is to replace one worry with another.”
So, there you go…now you can worry about pizza boxes – you’re welcome!
