It is widely used in daily life and industrial production, but the convenience at this time brings long-term harm. Commonly used plastic packaging bags are mostly made of polyethylene film, which is non-toxic, so it can be used to hold food. There is also a kind of film made of polyvinyl chloride, polyvinyl chloride itself is non-toxic, but the additives added according to the purposes of the film are often harmful substances to the human body and have certain toxicity. Therefore, this kind of film and the plastic bag made of this film are not suitable for holding food.
