Bringing your own lunch is healthier (what can beat home cooked meals?), not to mention environmentally friendly.
Take-away foods are often packed in either non-biodegradable containers such as styrofoams or anti-grease coated papers. Materials like styrofoam are made from petroleum and has toxins that leach out into food in contact with them. Styrofoam is formed by a synthetic material called polystyrene, which emits harmful substances like Styrene and Benzene into the air and into the food that has been packed in such containers. These toxins, when taken in with food, affect the reproductive system of the consumer.
Styrene gets stored in our fat cells, where they can accumulate to dangerous levels causing nervousness, fatigue, insomnia, depression and nervousness.
Benzene, on the other hand, is classified as a human carcinogen. Long-term exposure to excessive levels of benzene in the air causes leukemia, a potentially fatal cancer of the blood-forming organs, in susceptible individuals.
