To be clear - there are times that plastics are the wrong choice. Such as in the case of this young women who eats plastic. Yes, eats plastic. And not just in small doses, but large quantities - 60,000 items - including
"I have eaten 12 remotes, over 5,000 beads, over 1,000 cocktail swords, 100 forks, about ten water bottles, two pacifiers, three CD cases, about 50 hangers, about 25 plastic lids on to-go cups..."I hope that she gets some help, as eating all that plastics cannot be good for anyone. I'm not thinking about anything leaching from the plastic, but just the large bolus of indigestible items that could lead to blockages, punctures and all sorts of physical issues. As I said, plastics are often the wrong choicee and that is clearly the case here - proper food would be so much better.
