Well I didn't bet him the money.
I just suggested the idea, lmfao.

So the Styrofoam won't break down in his stomach? Lmfao.


As for the possible harmful effects of eating styrofoam -- if you do, you'll be ingesting a substance called styrene.

Studies suggest that styrene mimics estrogen in the body and can therefore disrupt normal hormone functions, possibly contributing to thyroid problems, menstrual irregularities, and other hormone-related problems, as well as breast cancer and prostate cancer. The estrogenicity of styrene is thought to be comparable to that of Bisphenol A, another potent estrogen mimic from the world of plastics.

Long-term exposure to small quantities of styrene is also suspected of causing:

* low platelet counts or hemoglobin values;
* chromosomal and lymphatic abnormalities;
* neurotoxic effects due to accumulation of styrene in the tissues of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves, resulting in fatigue, nervousness, difficulty sleeping, and other acute or chronic health problems associated with the nervous system.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer lists styrene as a possible human carcinogen, though this conclusion is primarily based on studies of workers in styrene-related chemical plants. The Vallombrosa Consensus Statement on Environmental Contaminants and Human Fertility Compromise includes styrene on its list of contaminants of possible concern, noting that even weak estrogen mimics can combine with other such chemicals to have negative effects even when the chemicals are individually present at levels that would have no impact. On the positive side, a 2005 expert panel convened by the National Institutes of Health concluded that there is negligible concern for developmental toxicity in embryos and babies.

So today in 2nd hour, we bet this kid 5 dollars he wouldn't eat a Styrofoam bowl. We have gotten this kid to try a tablespoon of ground cinnamon, we have got him to eat half an onion, and also got this kid to chug like a pint or quart of lemon juice.

But the point is, the kid ate half the bowl; and then he stopped and said he didn't feel good. We didn't give him the money ofc, because we told him the whole bowl.

But what are the effects of eating it? Is he gunna die?


Dylan...only you would bet some kid to do that :\
i feel sorry for the poor kid
