Mar 29, 2018

According to a new study, people who dine out had higher levels of toxic chemicals called phthalates than those who ate home-cooked meals.Researchers at George Washington University and the University of California at Berkeley found people who eat more fast-food or food prepared at restaurants or cafeterias had phthalate levels almost 35 percent higher than those who said they mostly cooked and ate their own food. The findings were published Thursday in the journal Environment International.
