If you are a person having fast food daily this is a very concerning news for you. Recent studies on people who eat more fast foods have shown mind blowing results. Researchers at George Washington University led by Ami Zota have detected high levels of phthalates in people eating more fast food.
Phthalates are a family of chemicals used in plastics and many other products to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl. It is widely used in consumer durables and causes high infertility among males. (Infertility refers to an inability to conceive after having regular sex in men. Infertility can also refer to a female who cannot carry a pregnancy to full term). “We’re not trying to create paranoia or anxiety, but I do think our findings are alarming. It’s not every day that you conduct a study where the results are this strong,” says Zota, assistant professor of environmental and occupational health at the varsity. The researchers suggest to stop having regular fast food.
