Need some info on plastic?

A plastic material is any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic solids used in the manufacture of industrial products. Plastics are typically polymers of high molecular mass, and may contain other substances to improve performance and/or reduce production costs. Monomers of plastic are either natural or synthetic organic compounds. source- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic
There are 2 types of plastic thermoplastic & thermosetting polymers
There are many forms of plastic such as Bakelite, Nylon, polystrene, polyvinyl chloride, Rubber, Synthetic Rubber etc.
-People often "ask is plastic a friend or a foe?" well to answer that question is quite easy- Plastic is like a medicin take to many you die of overdose, take to little it wont cure your infection, take the right amount and your fine (but then again nobody likes medicins :P)
