Haitallisia terveysvaikutuksia epäillään olevan, mutta asiaa tunnetaan toistaiseksi huonosti.
Sekin on epäselvää olivatko ftalaatit joutuneet pikaruokiin valmistusprosessin aikana vai olivatko ne peräisin pakkausmateriaaleista.https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articl ... fast-foods
Phthalates are a class of plasticizers that manufacturers use to make plastic materials softer and more flexible.
Phthalates are present in food packaging and food processing equipment and can leach into food.
Exposure to phthalates can interfere with the function of hormones and have adverse health effects.
Replacement plasticizers are being increasingly used to reduce exposure to phthalates, but there is little understanding of their long-term effects on human health.
A recent study reports detectable levels of several phthalates and replacement plasticizers in popular food items from leading fast-food chains, highlighting the need for regulating these chemicals.
