Not taking care of your health and consistently having a feast at restaurants and cafes can cause a severe health risk as per the new study.
The more you go and eat out the more is the risk of exposure to phthalates. It is a salt of phthalic acid; the substance is used in plastic to increase the longevity, durability etc.
This chemical alone is responsible for the growth of many diseases like asthma, type-2 diabetes, and breast cancer.
The research in past few years tells that we should put an end to the craving if there is frequent outing happening.
You consume more than 35% of phthalates by going put instead of staying in the home.
Phthalates have more outdoor use like in food packaging as well as products including flooring, adhesives soaps, and shampoos and the same type of chemical is found in your daily pizza at a restaurant.
Not just the pizza these can be found in burgers, sandwiches and other food stuff too. A warning note in the form of a blog post has already been passed regarding the harmful effects of consumption of phthalates.
Teenagers are warned to be extra cautious as the effect of consumption is 55% more than sitting at home. It was a study which showed that 55% teenagers have a frequent visit to outdoor food outlets.
The scientist took the help of US National Health, and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) collected between 2005 and 2014 to explore their research and study.
10,252 adults and teenagers were used in this experiment. They were told to eat out in any restaurant and crave whatever they want. Then each participant phthalate was measured in urine.
About 61% reported dining out the previous day. The association between phthalate exposure and dining out was found to be exceptionally strong for young people.
