Ideally, they should be wrapped with traditional leaves but in recent times, these process of utilizing these leaves seem to be stressful and a lot of people prefer using nylons which are obviously way easier. Use of nylons could make this nutritious meal more harmful to our health than beneficial.

An article sited on Daily sun records that nylons emit dioxins which are substances quite toxic to health when exposed to heat. Dioxins being highly toxic could result on ingestion to reproductive and developmental problems, damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and also cause cancer.

Moi-moi, though is quite nutritious but it's consumption can really lead to a couple health damages when they are prepared with nylons. The reason is, these substances emitted by nylons on exposure to heat would find their way into the food itself. When we consume such foods they get into our body where they reside till they are excessive enough to attack our health.

Instead of making use of nylons, it is better to make use of traditional leaves. They are healthier and would bless such food with a couple nutrients as well as a good flavour. These leaves are present in the markets. We can find them if only we look for them.
