Dr. Oz: Dangers of Phthalates in Our Food
Dr. Oz talked about a family of chemicals that our found in our everyday food. They’re called phthalates and they used to be found in child toys and childcare products and we removed them for safety concerns. But phthalates are still added to plastics to make them more flexible. Now, a study has found them in our food. Research shows that exposure to these chemicals has been linked to weight gain and endometriosis in women, as well as respiratory problems and brain and behavior changes in infants and children.
