Do you use BPA FREE Plastics?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic synthetic compound with the chemical formula (CH3)2C(C6H4OH)2 belonging to the group of diphenylmethane derivatives and bisphenols, with two hydroxyphenyl groups. It is a colourless solid that is soluble in organic solvents, but poorly soluble in water... .
It's used to create clear plastic. It also is a cheap alternative filler and leaches onto most things it comes in contact with (water, foods, oils, self-care products, etc.) and acts like oestrogen when absorbed by our body (both topically and orally).
The big problem lies in that if a product is BPA Free (unless it's a silicone product) all the company/product creators do is use a BPS - Bisphenol S (HOC6H4)2SO2 or BPF Bisphenol F (HOC6H4)2CH2 which is essentially the same product with a slight change on a molecular level. Even though it's slightly different molecularly it still, unfortunately, has the same side effects as BPA... Meaning that where possible you should try to avoid plastics entirely. .
Glass, steel, cotton or wool, paper/cardboard, and silicon are safer options for containers and packaging. .
It may not be avoidable at all times, however, if you can make a conscious effort to avoid plastics most of the time your bodies health and longevity will thank you dearly.
