Bisphenol A (BPA) is a dangerous, ubiquitous chemical

Comments Off

If you own a plastic drinking cup or have an infant and he/she uses a sippy cup, chances are the hard plastic drinking container was made with bisphenol A, a dangerous chemical that tests now show leaks into the drinking contents held within the plastic container. The Harvard School of Public Health has determined that bisphenol exposure can lead to cardiovascular disease and diabetes in humans and reproductive development disorders in certain animals.

The chemical is used to harden plastics and other polycarbonate products. The chemical needs to be banned and consumer’s exposure risk needs to be assessed.
