Using foam containers or plastic bags for “take away” food orders in Thailand is a common and widely accepted practice. But it can also be considered a hidden health hazard, doctors warn. Heated food using microwave oven causes chemicals like styrene to leak into the food and end up being absorbed by our body. Styrene, the chemical found in styrofoam may cause us several diseases or even premature death if consumed by our body. Therefore the doctors strongly suggest that we avoid using foam food containers.
