Beware, five of human trivial habits could destroy our Earth!

Currently, the rate of extinction of living species on Earth is increasingly alarming, about 1,000 times worse than it should be. And it is not wrong if the scientists continue to promote environmental protection.

However, we are as humans, do not bother to do the difficult things to save the environment, because there are some trivial habits that could have been avoided because they were able to destroy the nature. Here are some examples.

1. Eat with chopsticks
It turns out the use of chopsticks can have a major impact on the environment. Based on research, the forests of China suffered severe damage because of the wood used to make chopsticks.

Well-founded, because every year China could produce up to 80 billion chopsticks per year! And to make tens of billions of chopsticks, it takes about 20 million trees are decades old, which in essence is very useful to preserve nature.

2. Throw the birth control pill haphazardly
Based on research from the University of New Brunswick in 2014, birth control pills are disposed of carelessly had polluted waters, such as rivers and lakes in America. Ironically, the substances contained in the birth control pill was able to change the male fish into females!

If it continues to happen, the scientists predict that the number of fish species extinct due to the absence of marriage (because all the male fish into females) will increase dramatically.

3. Drinking through a plastic straw
Do you know if in America alone, every day 500 million straws thrown in the trash? Ironically, it makes the beaches polluted with plastic straws trash.
Plastic straws are considered dangerous because they are lightweight and made of polipropylen that can not be broken down by nature. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1MoLs5H)
According to scientists, plastic straws are considered dangerous because they are lightweight and made of polipropylen that can not be broken down by nature. It is estimated that, worldwide, there are 12-24 tonnes of waste plastic straws that pollutes the land until the waters every year.

4. Wash the hands with antibacterial soap
Anti-bacterial soaps usually contain triclosan chemicals which, when rinsed can be 'stranded' to waters such as rivers. Problems began when triclosan it decomposes due to natural processes.

From the research data of Johns Hopkins University Center for Water and Health, triclosan will break down into two types of chemicals that are carcinogens cause cancer alias. Rest of triclosan shown to cause severe diseases in animals are still young, for example rodents and amphibians group. Premature death animals if not treated immediately predicted to end up with extinction.

5. Do not spend on food
Maybe this sounds like a childish, but do you know if every human year, leaving 1.3 billion tons of leftover food and ultimately into the trash? If the total, do not spend on food habits can make human beings lose up to US. $750 billion per year! It was also the same as the wasted 28 percent of agricultural products around the world. In fact, out there around 870 million people still suffer from hunger.

The problem, to produce all the food that ultimately disiakan waste, humans have exploited nature. Demand for agricultural land made forest areas should be cleared up other environmental damage. Quite ironic is not it? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MERDEKA.COM]
