It appears that your so-called experts are not current with the knowledge of the dangers of polystyrene. You quoted in an article that it does not leach chemicals. This is not true. Please do proper research.
I would also like to suggest that your writers are encouraged to do thorough research before promoting concepts, as there are dedicated fans of your website who are preferring to ignore the science and quote you as the experts.

In the end, if they do become unwell, it is things such as the articles stating incorrect information that will cause them to go to you with their claims for compensation and costs of dealing with their illnesses.

I am posting some weblinks to information that may enable you to make more informed choices on the subject.
