Are disposable paper/ plastic cups good for health?

Disposable paper and plastic cups, widely used for taking hot beverages like coffee and tea. As you sip tea or coffee from a disposable paper cup, you also ingest some wax. All paper cups have a thin coating of wax on their inner surface to prevent them from disintegrating upon contact with a liquid. When a hot liquid is poured into such a cup, the wax gradually melts and mixes with it.

Experts say that the acid in the stomach usually flushes out whatever wax is consumed; however, if large amounts of it are ingested, it may accumulate and cause an obstruction in the intestines. Plastic cups are said to be more dangerous than wax-coated paper cups because they release polymers into the hot liquid.

What you think?
