Relatively high temperatures that come from foods may help the migration of plastic chemicals into the food. Migration is the movement of hazardous chemical substances obtained from packaging into foodstuffs, which is influenced by four factors namely the speed of migration, the food, the type of plastic material and temperature, as well as the length of exposure.

Gilang explain one of the harmful substances found in plastics are not safe for food is a substance Ptalat Dioctyl. Those substance store benzene, a chemical solution that is difficult to digest in the human digestive tract. Benzene also can not be excreted through feces or urine, as a result of these substances are increasingly piled up and wrapped by body fat and can trigger cancer.

General Manager of Joyoboyo Plastics, Handoko Sidhartha, said it carried out the safe plastic education for the communities in Central and West Java throughout Ramadan 1436 H. "The goal is to educate and increase public insight on the plastics according to the type and function through the campaign of 'Kenali Plastikmu or Know Your Plastics'," Handoko said. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ANTARA NEWS]
