What is BPA and how to avoid it?
Probably everybody has seen labels “BPA-free”, especially after BPA made headlines in the past. But you might be still wondering what exactly that means for us and why its important to keep the finger away from BPA products.
What is BPA? Why is it bad and should we be concerned?
Bisphenol-A (BPA) is in use since 1960 in the plastic manufacturing and is an industrial chemical added to many commercial products like baby bottles, plastic water bottles, tableware and hygiene products. It is a chemical which hardens the plastics.
BPA has the ability to leach into foods and beverages. BPA is in fact an estrogen like compound, it can change the hormone functions and affect the health over time. Furthermore it can negatively influence body processes like growth, energy levels and even cell repair. The exposure to BPA in early childhood can additionally influence development, weight and health risks later on in life. However they still use it nowadays, that’s why its important to check all products and ensure they are BPA free.
How to protect my family from BPA?
You are on the way to reduce the exposure to the chemical by simply buy BPA free food containers and water bottles for your family. Use stainless steel, wheat straw, glass, bamboo, wood, 100% food grade silicone or 100% medical grade silicone products.
