There are lots of reasons not to use plastic but this one might come as a shock.
Chemicals in everyday items, from household cleaners to food packaging, can damage a mans penis and make it smaller.
Phthalates, BPA and parabens are to blame for a rise in the number of baby boys being born with genital defects, experts have warned.
Dr. Andrew Pask and Dr. Mark Green, from the University of Melbourne, said in Australia penis birth defects have doubled in recent years, due to plastic use. To prove the link, they looked at the results when humans and animals were exposed to the chemicals. They were specifically looking for a defect called hypospadia, where the opening of the penis is on the underside rather than the tip, causing problems with function.
The pair identified several chemicals known to cause damage to humans, that we either consume through food or water contamination.

Gee, and I thought it was bad genes.
There is a rise in the number of baby boys born with genital defects?? Where are the numbers on that claim??? I am so sad that the medical community has embraced the Left so completely.
Are they using shrink wrap?
And plastic is increasing the size of breasts. Who knew?
“I was in the pool!”
Are guys using those vacuum bags?
So THAT's what it is. I thought it was from lack of use...
Liberal males don’t have penises.
Shrink? It ran off entirely. Maybe I'll find it down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place like last time.
And testosterone and fertility and masculinity.
But, hey, it’s growing man-boobs!
Just thought, I use to drink water out of the hose, and coke from a plastic straw.
I’m gonna lose my penis and die.
Huh. And all this time I thought the cause was feminism.
Puts a whole new meaning on Shrink Wrap.
Plastics and soy. Absolutely. Limit exposure to both, especially men. DO NOT heat up food in plastic containers, especially.
It’ll cost you 18 bucks this time. Maybe you should get it permanently attached.
