BPA plastic and plastic bottles rock my socks

30 May

Bisphenol A, or BPA, is a building block of plastics hazardous to humans.  BPA can mimic the body’s hormones and lead to negative health effects, especially when exposed during early development (infants).  There are some effects on fetal/infant brain development.  When items such as plastic BPA-containing bottles are exposed to heat, chemicals can leak into the bottle.

After getting tired of buying and using Deer Park water bottles, I have recently made the switch over to BPA free reusable water bottles.  These are an excellent alternative to spending a lot of needless $$$ on spring water.
