Plastics can alter human reproduction, and damage can even get passed down for generations, we know what that means, Let’s Take some steps to reduce exposure to free plastics too. Here's how:
- Drinking bottles: Use stainless steel water bottles instead of plastic ones. And skip the aluminum versions too. Many of them are lined with an epoxy resin also. Wondering if your bottle is safe or not? Taking a peek at the lining could give you some clues. If the coating has a golden-orange tint, chances are it could leach one of these chemicals into in your drink. White liners are generally safer.
- Food containers: If you aren't already using stainless steel or glass food storage containers, it's time to make the change. they will be a bit more expensive than the cheap plastic ones you can pick up in the shop, But they more safe investment in health benefits and durability.
- Skip the plastic: If you're microwaving use a paper towel to contain splatters instead of plastic. Or buy a glass cover made specifically for this purpose. And while I don't necessarily encourage cooking in aluminum foil especially at higher temps, if you need to wrap food up for storage it's a far safer alternative. Healthy people naturally excrete aluminum in their urine.
BPA- free is used in plastics such as water bottles and the epoxy linings of food cans. And it's often lurking in cash register receipt paper as well. And that means we end up swallowing it and absorbing it the skin too. In fact, a reserch tests have revealed, And testing by the Environmental Working Group foundcontamination in canned foods ranging from ravioli to beans. BPA is a suspected endocrine disruptor. It mimics estrogen. Which means your body has a hard time telling it apart from the actual hormone. And that's a problem because the studies have confirmed the compound may be associated with a long list of frightening health problems including: Hormone disruptions, cancer, heart problems, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, reproductive issues, behavioral problems.
There's plenty of evidence that BPA is toxic at lower levels. Which is why experts been encouraging people to run from this stuff. And you may have already that advice. Which is great. But don't make the mistake of thinking you're safe. BPA-free plastic alternatives have been popping up all over, The only trouble is these BPA alternatives are turning out to be every bit as bad as the original. just some paint on a very dangerous health issues.
