Water Bottle and Coffee Cup Health Concerns

As technology progresses to give manufacturers access to cheap alternative materials with useful, marketable traits, cost-conscious restaurants and fast food chains are often more than willing share in the price efficiency. The savings are sometimes passed on to consumers, but, regardless of consumer saving or not, these materials can quickly become widespread across the country. In the case of trendy unbreakable water bottles or cheap polystyrene coffee cups, innovation in plastics technology has pushed untested materials into the hands of consumers, who typically assume there are no associated health concerns to worry about. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Consumer Plastics and Health Issues

BPA and polystyrene have become popular chemicals in drink containers within the past few years, leading to massive production lines that affect a large population. However, both of these chemicals have been linked to possible health concerns in multiple studies. For example, studies involving BPA have caused some consumers to turn away from water bottles made with this chemical, and towards a non-BPA label.

Injuries that can result from chemicals in drink container plastics have the potential to affect the following major body parts:

  • Heart
  • Liver
  • Kidneys
  • Reproductive system
  • Thyroid gland

Unfortunately, some consumer products remain on shelves despite their potential health hazards. The negligence of manufacturers and restaurant owners can lead to serious health concerns with potential legal consequences.
