31 May Mutated genitals and pizza boxes
Yesterday, I read in the Danish newspaper BT (read here), that Mark Hartl from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, has conducted a study in which he has shown that toxic substances in pizza boxes can mutate the genitals of snails…
– this makes you fear whether the same thing could happen to humans.
Females turning into males… a scary thought…!
Honestly – the risk of turning ill because of the stuff we pack our unhealthy food in is not acceptable… People say that death must have a cause. But, hey… we don’t exactly have to wrap our food in the cause, do we?
On the other hand, I find that there are SO many other more important issues, and I think that the phenomenon of migration is often completely out of proportion. However, if our food customers want us to care – then of course we care and deliver accordingly. The customer is king. That’s how it is. Here, I am not talking about the printing plants (and then again… the printing plants definitely ARE the kings in my world ?) but about the food producers. They are the ones ultimately responsible for ensuring that the products supplied to consumers (that is you and me) do not contain unhealthy toxic substances from the packaging.
Haha – even cigarette filters (the yellow print on the paper) must be approved due to contact with the human lips. And even though by now most people agree that the stuff inside the cigarettes is the unhealthy part – then the filter ink is definitely not to be toxic… … it’s a strange world…
Fortunately, you do not need to worry about the products that RR PRINT supplies to the Scandinavian market.
There are no perfluorinated compounds in our products. You can read more about this in one of our previous (Danish) newsletters here. Our products do not contain bisphenol-A either. Read more about it (Danish) here.
Because we know how important it is for our customers to supply the very best they have to their customers – we assist them with hands-on advice and recommendations to reduce the challenges they may encounter in relation to the food packaging area.
