The hottest packaging cartons may have dioxins dis

  • Detail

Dioxins may dissolve out of packaging cartons and so on. Be careful with paper cup cartons for meals. According to the Beijing Youth Daily, paper cups help you block infectious diseases, while some harmful chemicals also imperceptibly invade your body. Recently, an experimental survey in Japan showed that the paper cups and packaging cartons for foreign fast food are undoubtedly a great affirmation. Dioxins may dissolve out in use, and entering the human body will lead to endocrine disorders and disorders. Carcinogens have also been detected in such disposable products processed with recycled paper -

reopened restaurants and restaurants are facing a new problem raised during the "SARS" period - the serving of individual dishes, which is a major challenge to the traditional Chinese way of eating, with the aim of reducing the transmission channel of the disease. It is easier to accept than this, and there are disposable paper cups that have been put into use earlier, although they are also for the common purpose of blocking the channels of disease transmission. However, while this paper cup helps you block infectious diseases, some harmful chemicals also sneak into your body

recently, an experimental investigation by the Osaka Municipal Institute of Environmental Sciences in Japan showed that dioxin may dissolve out of paper cups and packaging cartons for foreign fast food, which will easily increase the endocrine and cause self gravity disorders and disorders when entering the human body. Carcinogens were also detected in such disposable products processed with recycled paper. As the plastic products that fill people's daily life will release dioxin, people began to alienate the plastic products in tableware and tableware. In recent years, the environmental protection department has developed safety substitutes such as paper cups for this purpose. However, the good times are not long. It seems that the Japanese experiment is reminding people that these paper products without environmental protection norms also have health and safety problems

researcher Masako Miyazaki of the Institute began this kind of experiment in 2001. She selected 16 kinds of pulp products and 12 kinds of recycled paper products with sawdust as raw materials, cut them into 1 cm sized pieces, and then put them in ethanol to detect the dissolved trace substances. The results showed that bisphenol (BPA) associated with dioxin was found in 13 varieties of paper napkins, facial tissue paper, coffee paper, tea bag paper and other new pulp processing, with the content of 34 to 36 nanograms per gram, of which cooking paper had the largest content, and the higher temperature in use was easier to accelerate the dissolution of harmful ingredients

the BPA content detected in eight varieties, such as the recycled carton for sandwich takeaway and the carton for fried chicken, is also between 190 and 29000 nanograms/gram. In particular, the recycled carton for sandwich has the same degree of BPA dissolution problem as the synthetic resin polycarbonate tableware once widely used. It is pointed out that among the nine varieties of recycled paper containing carcinogens, dimethylamine and benzophenone (MK) are also as high as 170, which is completely comparable to the spraying effect of 0 to 12000 ng/g, among which the carton containing vegetables has the highest content. Microscopic examination also found that there were a large number of ink stains and residual particles of thermal paper components in recycled paper fibers, which were regarded as the source of harmful substances, while the source of toxic components in paper products produced by new pulp is not clear at present

according to the provisions of the Japanese food hygiene law, the dissolution level of harmful substances such as plastic, pottery and metal in the packaging and container materials of food should strictly comply with the national standards, but there are no clear requirements for paper products. Researcher Miyazaki pointed out that although the harmful components of these paper products have not reached the concentration that directly endangers human body, it is also an environmental hazard to allow them to expand production without restriction. In this regard, the food safety officials of the Ministry of health, labor and welfare believe that the environmental safety of paper products in the catering industry has not been raised as a problem, and there are no corresponding laws and regulations to restrict it. If the complaint report received is indeed confirmed, strict environmental standards should be formulated. The actual stress is increasing, and the development from plastic cups and other tableware to disposable paper cups is a great progress in the cause of environmental protection, but the new experimental data are reminding us that paper cups should be standardized and used with caution
