Have you heard of Bisphenol A or BPA? If not, then it’s high time that you do…
Simply put: BPA is a toxin.
It is a chemical that is usually found in plastic bottles such as those used for sodas and mineral water or plastic food containers.
The use of BPA in plastics is unregulated and is allowed under certain conditions. As it is, users themselves must be prudent enough to look into what they’re using, in order to confirm if they are at risk or not.
Note: if a bottle is imprinted with “#7” then it most likely contains BPA.
Dangers of BPA
According to some studies, exposure to BPA has various health implications, some of which can be quite serious.
BPA can cause heart problems, as well as diabetes. It also affects reproductive development and causes many other health issues.
Take note that plastic bottles and containers that have been subjected to extreme temperatures pose an even greater danger, as this means that more BPA has been released.
As it is, you should never do the following:
- Microwaving or reheating food using plastic containers.
- Reusing old plastic water bottles that may have been previously exposed to extreme heat.
- Drinking fluids from plastic bottles that have been left in the car for days.
- Failing to confirm if a particular plastic bottle is BPA-free or not.
