[GreenYes] expanded polystyrene - health + environment effects
Hello!
 
Would anyone have recent information / studies on the health impacts of consuming food from expanded polystyrene (ie: hot drinks in styrofoam cups) AND/OR environmental issues arising from expanded polystyrene in landfills?
 
The info I've found so far suggests inconclusive evidence of health hazards from the "styrene" compound, however this was from a chemical industry perspective.
 
Many thanks,
 
Jessica
