Studies in the United States have found that plastic packaging is easy to cause high blood pressure in children

according to the latest report in the British Daily Mail on May 22, a new research discovery published in the American journal Pediatrics, Chemicals in ordinary plastics, including plastic food packaging, can increase the risk of high blood pressure in children

scientists from the langueney medical center of New York University, the University of Washington and the medical school of Pennsylvania State University carried out a large-scale joint study on nearly 3000 children. The results showed that the use of phthalates (DEHP) and other chemicals in food packaging was just beginning in China, which would lead to the infrequent use of important metabolic and hormonal heterologous terms in the early development of children with impact toughness test. What worries scientists is that the colorless and odorless toxic substances contained in plastic floors, plastic cups, beach balls, plastic packaging and other items have a certain relationship with the sharp rise in the incidence rate of hypertension among adolescents

Dr. leonardotransander, head of the new study and professor of Pediatrics, environmental medicine and population health, said: early studies found that phthalates can inhibit the function of heart cells, increase vascular pressure and endanger vascular health. But the new study is the first to reveal the association between phthalates and heart health in children. New research shows that reducing children's exposure to harmful environmental chemicals and eating less plastic packaged food are of great significance to protect children's cardiovascular health
