Plastic People, When They Burn, They Start To Stink.

So, some time around WWII Du Pont decides making petroleum based plastic is more profitable than using plant oil, like hemp. Mostly, I suspect, because with hemp you can “grow your own” rather than needing to own an oil well or knowing somebody who does. Why let just any old peon have the means to make something useful?

And the result 60 years on?

Horrors: Girly Men

Plastic Chemicals Feminize Boys

and Obese Diabetics

Endocrine Disruptors and the Obesity Epidemic

On the bright side, this bodes well for a population decline. And a substantial decrease in plastic manufacturing.
