Foam cups, plates, food containers—they are everywhere. We call it Styrofoam but actually it’s polystyrene. And, what is important is that you recognize it is a toxin.
The foam contains styrene which mimics natural hormones and confuses the body. It has been linked to thyroid problems, breast cancer, menstrual irregularities and prostate problems. Unfortunately, 100% of us have it in our system and it came from drinking hot items from foam cups. Think about the containers that you use – and think about your health. Avoid foaming at the mouth and find another method for take-out!
