According to a report by the Environmental Group, based in Washington. Hundreds of food in U.S. contain plastics chemical. Azodicarbonamide, also known as ADA, is found as an ingredient in food products.It is also used in plastics to improve its elasticity in yoga mats and shoes. The World Health Organization reports have produced “abundant evidence that ADA can induce asthma, other respiratory symptoms, and skin sensitization” to people. This project Eraser Food is a photographic exploration of today’s unfortunate reality with context to the amount of rubber and plastic contents in the food.
