What Can Happen When A Pregnant Woman Uses Plastic

Published on

The fact that women are supposed to eat cautiously in pregnancy does not need to be stated for it’s a cliché. What is interesting here is that pregnant women, along with many other things which they are advised to avoid, should also refrain from getting exposed to plastics. Scientists have come up with alarming results on analyzing the effects of Bisphenol A present in plastics on pregnant women and in turn the fetus. The results depicted that since the compound gets metabolized in kids at a much slow or negligible rate than adults, it affects the mental state of children. It has been reported to cause disorders like hyperactivity, anxiety and depression in children. The compound can also get transferred to the fetus via breast milk.

Thus pregnant women should desist from using plastic as much as possible. This also includes the plastic bottles which are commonly used.
