Styrofoam Mom says avoid single-use Styrofoam

Styrofoam Mom wants to eliminate single-use Styrofoam containers and plastic bags from Arlington's restaurants and retail stores.  Styrofoam isn't easy to recycle.  It also might not be good for you.  A fellow news source recently stated:
As for styrene’s presence in Styrofoam and other consumer products, Brawley [Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society] likened the risk from such products to that of coffee and cellphones — uncertain and slight.
Worrying and getting stressed out about possible health risks surely is bad for your health.  The Ode Street Tribune recommends avoiding that.  You might also look at Styrofoam Mom's list of area restaurants that do not use Styrofoam.  They are probably establishments that take recycling and public health seriously.
