Industry Observer with No Longer Processing Mortgages. MLO #293441 expired

Marte  has written a very concise blog about the health issues regarding the unintended consequences of banning of plastic grocery bags that many of towns and cities are rushing to implement.  See her comments on how to avoid this making you sick.

Original content by Marte Cliff

The past few years have seen a whole lot of unintended consequences. The real estate industry is a prime example. And there's no doubt that there's more of that to come as regulations stemming from the Dodd-Frank Act come into effect.

But this unintended consequence has little to do with your career - except for the fact that it could put you in the hospital and unable to work. Or worse.

According to an article at Newsmax.com, California's plastic bag ban is making people sick - and not just sick. To quote the article, "the San Francisco County ban is associated with a 46 percent increase in deaths from food-borne illnesses.”

Why? Because consumers are using re-usable bags, and they aren't washing them between visits to the store. Thus, the bags are becoming incubators for E. Coli and coliform bacteria.

The message: If you use reusable bags - throw them in the laundry every time you return home from the store!

P.S. Is it AR or my computer - couldn't add a photo!
