I think the very last line of this article is the most telling. Not only that Carney would write it but worse still his editor (whoever that is) would allow it to be published.
To write such a thing only shows how much disregard these people are to any thoughts of being "unbiased".
Some much then for 'journalism'.
It's also worth perusing the comments section and taking in the froth and foment.
It is unfortunate that the author takes such a negative position on the topic. Even while citing source that confirm the health risks of plastics they offer no encouragement or suggestions for alternatives, and instead take a "that's just the way it is" attitude.
I applaud this author taking on.... what she says in her own article and alludes to in the title... a difficult social subject.
It is something we all need to consider. And more people should write about.
