IS PLASTIC REALLY THAT DANGEROUS TO OUR HEALTH??
The dangers of Bisphenol A (BPA) have been known for years, and the FDA recently came out and admitted that, well, maybe it’s not that good for us…You’ve also slowly seen the retail side of things slowly proclaim that their products are now BPA free. Strong move in this direction in baby products (after decades of it’s use!!) and water bottles. What we are NOT seeing is the education that many canned goods contain BPA as a lining to protect the metal. So those canned green beans you’re planning on having for dinner? Not only do they not have any nutritional value left, but they’re likely loaded with BPA. Plastic water bottles remain the biggest likely exposure, though. This is magnified by the concept that every needs to have instant access to bottled water every waking hour of the day. See how much this has done for our health now that everyone lugs around plastic water bottles?
