A simple single-use plastic bottle might only get 5 minutes of use.  You toss it away after finishing your drink. But did you know that it takes several hundred years to disintegrate?!
 

Plastic bottles not only pollute our oceans but they have toxic effects on our bodies. Plastic often features antimony, a toxic metal that increases its durability and makes it easier to reuse.  However, this toxic metal has many negative side effects for both the consumers and Mother Nature. Antimony from plastic refuse can leach into the ocean, eventually corrupting our food chain. Or, more directly, if consumers use plastic incorrectly - it can more quickly leak into your food and drink.  Antimony toxicity causes such side effects as excess inflammation which is the root of many chronic diseases, and allergies. 

A simple way to test your toxicity levels is to schedule a hair mineral test with Mineralysis, please do not hesitate to contact us (telephone no. at 2865 7073 and email at 
lab@mineralysis.com.hk).  Our lab can provide you with appropriate tests to examine if you are at risk and our professional nutritionist can offer consultation to guide you on how to reduce your risk from natural food and supplement intake.
