It looks like we’ve been duped again. After a very long battle to have BPA removed from consumer products (at least those used by small children) we find that the product being used in its place is equally as harmful to our health.
The journal Toxicology In Vitro reports:
“In 2011, the European Commission has restricted the use of Bisphenol A in plastic infant feeding bottles. In a response to this restriction, Bisphenol S is now often used as a component of plastic substitutes for the production of baby bottles. One of the major concerns leading to the restriction of Bisphenol A was its weak estrogenic activity. By using two highly standardised transactivation assays, we could demonstrate that the estrogenic activity of Bisphenol A and Bisphenol S is of a comparable potency.”
Bisphenal (BPA/BPS) is a chemical found in hard plastics and the coatings of food and drink cans. The body reacts to this chemical in a similar way as it does to estrogen and other hormones. This is why BPA is referred to as a “hormone disruptor”.
Don’t look now but small doses from the Bisphenal family over long periods of time (in the womb and beyond) and your small child will develop HUGE hormonal problems. If you ever wonder why so many kids today are sexually active in grade school, why so many of our young boys don’t act like little boys are why our little girls are beginning the menstrual process as young as age 7 years old you can turn to Bisphenal for answers.
Bisphenal is used to make a multitude of products including water bottles, dental fillings, medical devices and BPA can be found in epoxy resins used as coatings inside of food and drink cans. It isn’t easy to get away from BPA but it is possible.
Yep…telling us that BPA has been replaced with BPS for safety purposes is just BS. Start saying “
hell no” to plastics for the sake of the health of your children and your grandchildren. They are worth the inconvenience. At least I think they are.
