    Help! noticed i have an assignment due tomorrow

    I have to do a report on cancer causing chemicals given off when making certain packaging. I'm not clued up on this and some guidance would be a great help. Any links to websites to do with this would be great if anyone has nothing much to do.

    Thanks
    Rob

    To be fair just because you've been taught something doesn't mean you know the subject lol, i can think of many, many times this has happened to me. Although i never leave my assignments or essays to the last day!!! Mistake number one!

    If you are being taught something as a general subject (such as English) then you will be expected to apply the principles so I disagree with you.

    But if you have been taught a specific topic doesnt necessarily mean that you understand the topic... and where does it say the OP is studying a general subject;

    im not trying to cause an argument nor a flame war. Im here to help not hinder

    Who is arguing? I'm not.
    The OP said he isnt clue up...which to me is suggesting he doesnt know anything about what he is looking to write an essay about.
    Lecturers dont just pluck a random task out of the air.
    Anyhow, good luck to the OP.

    ok for the original poster: i have found an article proving there is no Hard Evidence linking cancer to plastic packaging... thing is im not sure how to send it to you as i dont think you will be able to view the article as you need to be logged in to view...

    Honestly, no need to apologise

    do a report on certain chemicals such as benzene - find maybe 4 or 5 and write a bit about them, google each and then write the problems they cause, and the solutions that have been found. asbestos is another good one. if you need any help with teh science, post back or PM me.

    now then wheres the OP gone? i got some stuff and hes gone

    lol i hope he is reasearching
