In the former article, we learned that had quality straws are harmful to human. They can not only hurt our liver, but also cause blood disease and nervous system disease. Besides, it may cause other serious like sexual precocity, infertility and abortion. Worse more, it may cause baby congenital malformation and even cause cancer.
How can we avoid such problems?
For our health, the best way is don’t use plastic hose. We can drink it straightly or put the drinks into a cup. But if you have to use a straw, make sure the straw is food grade. Then how to choose high quality straws in our daily life? Here are some suggestions as following.
Look at the straws to see if they are transparent and colourless. As we learned last time, colored straws use more additives which are harmful and even toxic. Besides, put the hose under the light to see if there is any impurity inside it. If there was, it may use bad quality even wasted plastic material.
Qualified straw is odourless. Therefore, it will be bad quality straw if there was terrible plastic smell. In another way, you can put the straw into hot water. If there was terrible smell or if there was color or impurity come out, then it’s bad quality.
If the straw distorts and can’t return to the former shape with just a small force, that means it has no plasticity. This also indicate the bad quality material.
When buy straws, check the package first. Find out the accurate production date, quality guarantee period, producer, certificate and material. Then check if there was any bubble or dirt on the straw.
