“Lethal Lunch” talks about styrofoam and how it affects hormones. I thank Meredith R. for writing about this because it touches close to home. When I was seven I was diagnosed with precocious puberty. My mom thought it was because of the hormones in dairy products and meat. But after reading this article she thinks it may have been a combination of the two. I agree that schools should stop using styrofoam for this reason. We shouldn’t experience that just because a school refuses to pay more.
