The Plastic Effect By: Zakiyyah Carrington Teacher: Meisha Plummer a dna ™emi Tk ciu Q ross erpmoced )de sserpmocnU ( F FI T .eru tcip sih t ee s o t d edeen e ra Grade: 7 Introduction My project “ The Plastic Effect ’’ is about the health of a baby who uses plastic bottles. The reason why I thought of this project was because I wanted to inform people that using plastic baby bottles can potentially be harmful. I hope to give people useful information on plastic baby bottles so that they can further their knowledge on using plastic. Scientific Question Is plastic a healthy source to use for babies food and drinks? Did you know that …. The less flexibility in plastic the healthier it is to use. Chemicals used to manufacture certain plastics such as polyvinyl chloride can be harmful when digested. Plastic bottles can leach harmful elements into the baby’s foods and drinks. Did you know that…. Frequently microwaving a baby’s bottles can eventually lead to cancer. Also having scratches in your bottle can leach harmful elements inside the contents of the bottles. If you use a better drinking source for your baby it can help lead to a better lifestyle. Hypothesis What if you use plastic to hold your baby’s food, then the BPA( bisphenol a ) in most baby bottles can stimulate the growth of cancer cells and cause genetic damage. What are the effects of using plastic bottles ? The effects of using plastic bottles is that the polyvinyl chloride can be potentially harmful when digested. Why should parents be more careful at what they give their child to drink from ? Parents have to be more careful at what they give their child to drink from because as they get older the side effects increase, at least they would know it was possibly from drinking from plastic bottles. What did I learn from doing this project? I learned that plastic isn’t a very healthy way of feeding babies. I also learned the side effects, and how serious this subject really is. This project is a good way of informing people about the potentially harmful effects of using plastic bottles for children.
