The nutty, crazed anti-baggists, who are against throw-away paper and plastic bags, based on their faulty understanding of basic economics and their delusional vision that we will all be suffocated in a world of empty bags, may be even more harmful than first thought. They are more than humorous nut jobs, it turns out they are killers. Not only will their anti-bag crusade result in a nutty distortion in the economy, but their crusade will end up killing some of us.
A study will be published this week in The Journal of Infectious Diseases that solves the mystery of how a “a nasty outbreak of norovirus infections in a group of soccer players” left a soccer team ill. The culprit was a reusable grocery bag, exactly like the ones people will have to use if more cities decide to ban plastic grocery bags, reports Breitbart.
Even before reusable grocery bags are widespread, the norovirus results in yearly hospitalizations of 800,000 people and deaths of another 800, since the infectious virus causes severe vomiting and diarrhea.
And as more cities like Los Angeles try to ban plastic grocery bags, reusable grocery bags will be more omnipresent in these cities, causing greater health dangers.
