The flip side to the dangerous plastics story

I’m a skeptic, but in the interest of equal time, here is the other side of the story. And, it’s one we’ve heard over and over from apologists: sample sizes used in research studies are so much more than human consumption that the results aren’t trustworthy. This is an argument that sounds logical, but would mostly discount most food and drug research over the past 50 years. Our recommendation here at GreatDad is still to keep plastic of all types away from food as much as you can. Yes, it is possible that there is no risk from plastics, but why risk it when there are now many other options that are also better for the environment. There is just no reason to continue using plastic with food.
