What are the chances that you are buying and bringing BPA right into your own home? Probably pretty good, and there is reason to be concerned.
BPA – or bisphenol-A – shows up in a lot of the products we use each and every day and it is linked to developmental problems, cancers, heart disease, diabetes, and infertility. For those want to reduce their exposure to this controversial chemical, here are my top five ways to do just that.
1) Be Particular About Your Plastic
BPA can be found in plastic food containers and water bottles. It’s best to drink water from a stainless steel or a “BPA-free” labeled bottle. If you are using plastic food containers or buy food in a plastic container, check the bottom. BPA is used in polycarbonate (PC) containers that are often marked No. 7. Plastics with the recycling numbers No. 1, No. 2, and No. 4 are safer choices.
