WHAT IS BPA?
Without getting too technical, BPA is a chemical that has been used to harden plastics for more than 40 years. It’s everywhere. It’s in medical devices, compact discs, dental sealants, water bottles, the lining of canned foods and drinks, tops of baby jars, formula tins, and many other products.
More than 90% of us have BPA in our bodies right now. We get most of it by eating foods that have been in containers made with BPA. It’s also possible to pick up BPA through air, dust, and water.
BPA is still common in baby bottles, sippy cups, baby formula cans, and other products for babies and young children.
