BPA Chemical Resurfaces in Our Daily Life #AMCoffee Daily

BPA Free Is Not Sometimes 100% That


Plastic Water Bottles
We,  consumers, been clueless for decades that chemicals in plastics contribute to hormonal system disruption in a huge and devastating way. More often than not, people and their doctors cannot find a source or reason what is happening to human bodies. Deep inside, it could be the effects from the chemicals like BPA and BPS that are found in plastics – like Plastic Bottles – that mimic estrogen and do their disruptive war on all of the body’s systems, especially hormonal system.

The suffering could be from inability to maintain normal weight successfully to suffering from headaches and more severe conditions.

Now, it is in the news that the BPA chemical resurfaces camouflaged in its cousin known as BPS or bisphenol-S, the chemical compound used to replace bisphenol-A in “BPA-free” plastic products.

Let’s go over some tips and ways to address this situation in our lives. Go to Comments area with posted conversations.

  1. AM COFFEE – Sign In! HELLO, Everyone!

    Are you familiar with BPA chemicals that lure inside plastic products?

      GM joining you from Chilly Wi this subject to me is crucial. I just started drinking water from drinking soda and I am struggling with it..

      • CoffeeTime says

        1st thing –> Do not go Cold Turkey! Drink half of soda first, get used to it. Then reduce it even more.
        2nd think –> drink plenty of water during the day, too. It would help you eliminate toxins from your body and hydrate you properly. The results and improvements could be felt in multiple areas –> less headaches, more energy, overall better physical feeling.

      Hi from COLD PA!

    Did you know that in today’s “BPA-Free” consumer products, like drinking bottles, some companies use BPA’s substitute BPS or bisphenol-S that is a hormone disruptor that affects Brain Circuitry in developing animal embryos.

    There are hundreds o chemicals that are used in our household plastics that leach estrogenic chemicals especially when heated, like microwave and dishwasher cycles.

    The best way is to stay away from Plastics in the household environment. But how can we do it? Plastics are everywhere. Read on what could be done to minimize our exposure to plastics.

    – plastic food storage containers

    – food wrap

    – hard and flexible packaging

    – deli containers

    – plastic bags

    – anything made from wool, cotton, hemp or plastic-free, biodegradable fibers

    – plastic-free cleaning products, such as baking soda, vinegar and essential oils

    – stainless steel or cast iron cookware

    – glass blender

    I’ve just read in Washington Post that scientists from the University of Calgary conducted their research revealing that bisphenol-S, a chemical used to substitute harmful bisphenol-A in plastics, causes Abnormal Growth Surges of Neurons in an animal embryo!

    Can you believe it?!

    The manufacturers are now using this chemical in plastics, especially in our Water and BABY Bottles to claim their “BPA-Free” status! No Way!

    Here’s what the official response to the study and news was:

    “A lot of the alternative chemicals have not been adequately tested because they don’t have to be,” said lead author Deborah Kurrasch. “A compound is considered safe (by the Food and Drug Administration) until proven otherwise.”

    I’d like to quote the reaction of one of the scientists who was an author in the study:

    “Finding the mechanism linking low doses of BPA (or BPS) to adverse brain development and hyperactivity is almost like finding a smoking gun,” Hamid Habibi, one of the authors of the study, said in a news release.

    BPA is an industrial chemical found in many polycarbonate plastics as well as epoxy resins, which are used to coat the inside of food cans. Over the past few years, dozens of studies have linked BPA, which mimics estrogen, with prostate cancer, infertility, asthma, heart disease and a number of neurodevelopmental disorders. ”

    Here’s more quoting that the newspaper offers:

    “In the new study, the scientists expressed surprise that the early abnormal growth of brain cells they observed in the fish embryo specifically affected male hormones, potentially indicating why more boys than girls are diagnosed with certain neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.”

    The year 2012 was one of those memorable years when Officially all US manufacturers could not legally use BPA in producing baby bottles and sippy cups.

    Look what I found –> Last month FDA reiterated its belief that BPA is SAFE to use in the lining of canned foods and beverages. Yes, we are still getting all the lining inside the cans with those harmful chemicals.

    The best way is to NOT give our kids and ourselves canned goods. Some companies specifically tell their customers that they do not use resin lining for their canned products. But you need to find them in your local stores.

    One more fact that many may not be aware of.

    Many stores coat their RECEIPTS with BPA.

    I do not give any printed receipts from store purchases to my child EVER! Rather I quickly fold it ink facing the inside fold and tuck it away, trying to avoid my own contact with the ink, the printed side.

    Skin has an amazing ability to absorb tiny particles from that ink, and voila, we may have even more chemicals added to our blood stream.

    So, stay away from touching the ink printed on receipts!
