    The only logical reason I can think of for this is the reliance on plastics in our food and water systems. Nearly every food comes into contact with plastic. The water coming out of your tap, be it city water or a private well, is also very likely to have traveled through plastic.

    I can see the government being hesistant to broadly label all of it as toxic while needing to continue to rely on these plastics.

      Uh, the government were the ones that said it was. The courts overruled it, and they’re now appealing.
