Plastic products are unavoidable in today’s world, but that doesn’t mean they are safe. Expert nutritionist and skincare guru Ginger Hodulik Downey, MS, CNS, talks about the dangers of plastic. Plastic contains BPA and other chemicals that can cause hormone disruption and even lead to cancer. While BPA has been phased out due to increasing public awareness of this danger, replacement plastics may be just as dangerous. For this reason, Ginger suggests using glass or stainless steel as an alternative to plastic containers and avoiding products packaged in plastic altogether whenever possible.
