Time To Tell The Truth: Whether Using Disposable Paper Cups Can Cause Cancer?

First of all, let’s start with the material of the paper cup. The most widely used disposable paper cups are “paper-plastic cups”. The outside of the paper cup is a layer of ordinary food grade paper and the inside is a layer of coated paper. The material of the membrane is cohesive.
As long as it is safe to use the inner polyethylene material that meets the standard to make the coating of the disposable paper cup, only when the temperature exceeds 200 ℃, the inner polyethylene will decompose and produce harmful substances. Our hot drinks are generally not Above 100°C, it will not cause the decomposition of the inner polyethylene, so the disposable cup made of this standard material for holding hot water will not cause safety problems.
At present, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine has issued relevant regulations that the sale and use of disposable paper cups that have not obtained the SC safety mark are prohibited. In other words, if the paper cup has the SC mark, it means that all the indicators of the production materials are qualified, and there is no need to worry about the problem of excessive fluorescent agent.
So in general, as long as you buy qualified products from regular manufacturers, they will not cause cancer.
All in all, if you want to buy disposable paper cups, you must buy paper cups with quality assurance. Don’t be greedy for cheap. Unqualified paper cups are generally very soft and easily deformed after being poured into water. Some paper cups have poor air-tightness, and the bottom of the cup is prone to water seepage, which can easily burn hands with hot water.
What’s more, if you gently touch the inside of the paper cup with your hand, you can feel the fine powder on it, and the touch of your finger will also turn white. This is a typical inferior paper cup. Don’t buy paper cups with incomplete signs, let alone “three-no” products.
