summerize the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they oppose specific points made in the reading passage. The food industry has been overusing hard-to-recycle plastic packaging. However, it has caused severe environmental issues. As a solution to the plastic packaging crisis, casein-based plastic packages, which are made out of milk proteins, have recently been invented. The edible milk-based packaging promises to have advantages in general. First of all, using casein would reduce a large amount of waste. Casein-based wraps are biodegradable, which means they can easily dissolve in water. The good news is, they hardly have any impact on the maritime environment. This is because casein is a chief protein in milk, and protein does not do any harm to the environment when disposed of. Significant drops in landfills can be expected. Second, food can stay fresher when using casein-based plastic packages. Casein is much more effective in blocking oxygen due to its pores, which are smaller than those of other kinds of plastic materials. Since casein-based films possess strength and low oxygen permeability, they become more effective in preventing food spoilage during distribution processes. Third, casein-based plastic bags can be nutritious. While many other edible plastic packages are made out of starch, casein contains a high number of proteins and other edible substances such as hydroxyl and amino groups, which are good for producing enzymes, hormones and other bodily chemicals. These are also very nutritious for our bones and muscles. Other nutrients, such as vitamins or probiotics, can be added for more health benefits.

The reading and lecture are both about casein-based plastic packages. Whereas the author of reading states advantages of this packaging, the the lecturer casts doubts on the main points made in the reading by providing numerous reasons. First of all, according to the author of the passage, casein based packaging can reduce large amount of waste from our environment as these can easily dissolve in water. However, the lecturer disputes this point. He says that casein is extreme durable in water. Therefore, we will need an extra packing to protect the inner layer which will result in polluting environment. Secondly, the reading states that, casein have smaller pores which can help in blocking oxygen molecules and therefore it become more effective in keeping food fresh. Nevertheless, the lecturer refutes the argument. He argues that, its low durability with water result in absorbing water molecules and result in oxidation of food. In addition he points out that this also result in low elasticity of the packaging. Finally, the reading claims that these bags can be nutritious as they contain high number of proteins and other beneficial substances. On the other hand, the lecturer believes that these are big threat for those people who are allergic to milk and other dairy substance. In conclusion, although the reading and lecture are both about the edible milk based packaging, the three main point in the reading are effectively challenged by the lecturer.
