Phthalates are everywhere. They can be found in plastic food containers, coatings, printing inks, household products, packaged foods, and personal-care products. Phthalates act as binding agents and make plastics softer and more flexible.

New studies on the dangerous impacts of phthalates on our health seem to come out every week. Given their hormone- or endocrine-disrupting effects phthalate exposure has been linked to a host of health conditions making their widespread use a serious public health concern. Pregnant women and children especially are at heightened risk.
