BPA: Bisphenol A
I’ve seen BPA pop up on the major TV networks. This is not a new problem, just a new news story. BPA makes plastics soft and is used in many of our commercial products such as baby bottles, water bottles, DVDs, and most of our household containers. It’s use has been banned or regulated in most European countries because BPA leaks into the containers contents. It’s heightened by heating the plastic or putting hot or acidic contents into the plastic. BPA plastics are sometimes marked with the non-recyclable 7 symbol. This week’s study showed 93% of people contain traces of BPA. Those persons with the highest levels had twice the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Buy BPA free products, especially those for babies. Use glass containers for left-over and to-go food. Don’t heat food with plastic wrap or in plastic containers. Exercise and healthy eating along with hydration and multi-vitamin & multi-mineral supplementation help fight the negative effects of these and other toxins. Talk to Dr. Kuty about a specific health program to detoxify and increase your health potential.
