Whether it’s organic or non-organic, Bisphenol A (BPA) can be found in commonly purchased foods such as soups, canned vegetables, and baby formulas. Unfortunately, even though some products may be labeled BPA-free, that’s not to be trusted.
BPA is a chemical in hard plastics, including baby bottles and Nalgene-bottles, linings of cans and even sealants used by your dentist that may raise the risk of prostate and breast cancers, reproductive abnormalities and even heart disease.
The FDA is planning on updating guidelines on the upper limit of safe exposure. Even though small amounts of BPA may be in certain products, it’s the accumulative effect that concerns us. What to do??
Go fresh…eat fresh fruits and veges, and even frozen is OK. Always use glass containers when heating food in the microwave. Go with aluminum water bottles and limit your use of plastics especially polycarbonate plastic #7 and polyvinyl chloride, PVC #3.
