Psssst: Check it out - Plastic Troubles

NutritionWonderland is a fantastic site which looks at nutrition from all angles, from health to ecological impact to hard science. Right now, they're running a special feature called "Plastic Troubles" about all those things that plastics make possible, like smaller testes, cancer, and marine debris. So far, you've only missed articles on BPA and Phthalates, so if you hurry, you'll catch up pretty quickly. Some horror stories about brominated flame retardants and dioxin are on the way, as well as a nice piece written by yours truly about the ecological impacts of plastics.
