Science News Online reports that scientists are now documenting that extremely low doses of several toxic chemicals, including the plastics-softening chemicals called phthalates, may have adverse effects on humans. The article further reports that research with the plastic-softening agent bisphenol A, a hormone-mimicking agent, shows detrimental effects with low-dose stimulation. Several other studies have similarly concluded that such chemicals can allegedly leach out of plastics packaging into contained foods or beverages, thus altering their chemical compositions, and having allegedly adverse effects on human beings.
