Review of the Styrene Assessment in the National Toxicology Program 12th Report on Carcinogens ( 2014 )
We are committed to giving you the most accurate and well-researched information about single-use polystyrene and the ways humans and the environment encounter the substance.

We believe further research of exposure to styrene through food package on subgroups of the “general population” would be useful.
The fact is even something as common as tap water can be an issue for pregnant, nursing and immune compromised individuals.
The topic of Styrene and the human body has been studied for 50 years and will likely continue to require research as long as we keep buying it. What is the benefit of choosing an alternative to single-use Styrofoam? For me, it is peace of mind.
As Einstein once said, “It is not that I am so smart, I just stay with a problem longer.” Stay tuned.
