Scientists say wrappers used to protect fast food could be hazardous. A new study out of University of Toronto shows greaseproof papers break down into carcinogens.

Investigators think those carcinogens are prone to buildup and may remain in the body.

This class of chemical is known as PFOA's and researchers say the chemicals are migrating into food and then being ingested.
