You May Have More Industrial Chemicals in Your Body Thanks to Fast Food

According to Bloomberg News, data from federal nutrition surveys revealed that people who have consumed fast food in the last 24 hours may have elevated levels of certain industrial chemicals in their bodies. These chemicals, called phthlates, have been shown to disrupt the male reproductive system in rats, and there is evidence that a similar effect could occur in humans.

The data also showed that fast food was a significant source of phthlates, and that the chemicals may leach into food from machinery used in processing or packaging or from gloves worn by workers.
