Technology : A boon to the DOOM

This is an inevitable part of modern lifestyle....the "Plastics". It is considered to be one of the most important gift of the ever developing technology. But, only a few really knows the adverse effects of the boon to the modern worlds. Almost in everything plastics have become the key component. 

Now, this is something new that has annoyed me for the past somedays. Canadian researchers have found that Bisphenol A (BPA) the chemical used in making plastic containers,might be responsible for impairing many brain functions such as learning and remembering. They also fear that it could be a factor behind Alzheimer's schizophrenia and depression. BPA is globally used in making plastic water bottles, baby food bottles, food containers and dental prostheses. In their study, the researchers at the University of Guelph near here found that BPA might be leaking foods kept in the plastic containers. 

When these foods and liquids are consumed, they said, the chemical might be getting into the human might be getting into human system, disrupting communication between brains neurons which is vital in understading and remembering. According to researcher Neil MacLusky, the slow doses of this chemical badly impair the formation of synapses in the areas of the human brain linked to learning. 

This is a matter to be considered seriously !!
