Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical very often used for manufacturing plastic bottles, eating utensils and microwave ovenware. BPA is known to be a hormone disruptor. Studies show that it can change the normal hormonal activity of your body.
Food-storage containers and even baby bottles are made with BPA. But is this chemical really dangerous? In fact, it is. Bisphenol A contains two phenol functional groups. BPA exposure may cause serious health problems. Thus, it can lead to diabetes, obesity, hyperactivity, miscarriages, low sperm counts, breast cancer and testicular cancer.
BPA is particularly dangerous for pregnant women and infants. Estrogen is a part of your endocrine system. BPA mimics this naturally occurring hormone. Estrogen is an extremely important hormone that controls the development of the brain and the reproductive system. Moreover, it controls the vital systems in the developing fetus.
BPA is believed to have carcinogenic effects, developmental toxicity and possible neurotoxicity. BPA triggers fat-cell activity causing obesity in this way. So, Bisphenol A is a harmful chemical. Thus, drinking bottled water will be also harmful to your health.
If you really want to protect your body against the negative influence of BPA, you should restrict the consumption of bottled water. It will be much better if you switch from bottled water to safe and healthy water.

BPA gets into water and food from polycarbonate plastic bottles. It has been estimated that adults ingest 1 microgram of Bisphenol A for every kilogram of their body weight. Infants get 10 micrograms per kilogram of their body weight.
You must do your best to reduce the exposure to this harmful chemical. Use porcelain, stainless-steel and glass containers to store drinking water and foods. If you don’t think that using a glass baby bottle is a good idea, you can take a baby bottle that is BPA free. Thus, you will know for sure that nothing threatens your baby’s health.
You can also minimize your exposure to this very dangerous chemical if you start using plastics with recycling numbers 1, 2 or 5. Try to purchase only BPA-free products. Always wait till your food cools before putting it into a plastic container.
Get a water ionizer that will filter your tap water making it really safe. A water ionizer will not allow polyvinyl chloride from the pipes to get into your drinking water. Buy wooden toys for your kids. Soft plastic toys can be extremely dangerous. Your kid may put them in his mouth.
You should also buy soaps and deodorants without fragrance. And try to avoid vinyl shower curtains. People are exposed to BPA every day. Water bottles, compact discs, food packaging and the other products are made with Bisphenol A. Such consumer products have the number 7 on their bottom. Pay attention to it when you make a purchase. Take care of your health. Protect it from BPA effects!
