Kick BPA's to the Curb

Kick BPA’s to the Curb

When it comes to BPA’s -- bisphenol A – I really can’t say a good word about them. They’re bad for the earth and terrible for our bodies – so the less we ingest (knowingly or not) the better. When you feel as strongly about sustaining wellness as I do, the best way to deal with BPA’s is to get them out of your life. And how do I loathe BPAs? Let me count the ways. First of all, biosphenol A is an industrial chemical, an endocrine disrupter, a suspected carcinogen and proven synthetic hormone that mimics the effects of estrogen! BPA’s have been linked to increased risks for heart disease, cancer and diabetes, as well as liver and brain problems.
