It turns out “BPA-free” isn’t as safe as we thought… We’ve written about Bisphenol-A (BPA) several times. Manufacturers have used it for more than 50 years to make hard plastic and some paper products. Despite its wide use and the FDA’s insistence that it’s safe… BPA has been linked to prostate and breast cancers, diabetes, and heart disease. I’ve told readers to avoid using plastic bottles and touching receipts… at a minimum, wash your hands after touching paper with it.
And I suggested people look for bottles labeled “BPA-free.”
Unfortunately, many manufacturers have replaced BPA with Bisphenol-S (BPS) which is probably just as dangerous. Studies show it alters proper hormone function in the same way that BPA can. While more research still needs to be done, I don’t want something near my body that is already known to mess with hormones and kills living cells.
To avoid BPA and BPS, don’t buy foods stored in the harder plastic containers. Where possible, buy products in glass or softer plastics. And switch out your plastic water bottle for a stainless-steel one. Klean Kanteen is a leading manufacturer of stainless-steel bottles.
