New research suggests or associates (this was not released as a warning Will Robinson) that BPA exposure may increase risk of miscarriage and male infertility.
So depending on who is speaking or writing and the level of their perception, you may just get, "While there is no proof" or "There may be a connection" or "We need to do more tests" as the years go by.
Well to my readers, I say this: In a lab during my 1979 Internship I was taught the proof that only three things Do Not put carcinogens into our food and drink. I have been stating this fact on my web sites since 1995 and today EnergyHotwire stills hosts those details. Only Glass, Porcelain and Wax Paper are clean to touch food or drink. So to me the new research is a medical warning to expecting mothers and all families because we are exposed to large amounts of BPAs each day. Plastic items, beauty products, canned goods, and children's toys are all dealers of BPAs.
In addition, when you change temperatures of plastic you increase the amount of carcinogens or BPAs released. Do not leave water bottles in your car, better still, stop buying water and go to EnergyHotwire to learn a brilliant alternative. Do not put plastic that touches food or drink into microwaves, freezers or refrigerators.
Buy as much food as possible in glass jars, boxes, paper bags or containers lined with wax or wax paper. Even tuna can be found in glass jars and soup in boxes that state they are not lined with BPA. Avoid plastic with recycle numbers 3, 6, and 7 because they will have the greater possibility of containing BPAs. Use porcelain or glass lined travel mugs, you know, like the old thermos bottles we had when kids. If you dropped one, you heard the glass break inside. If you don't find any available, then use a steel lined travel mug, not aluminum, steel. Not great, but better than plastic.
So we still don't have hard proof that BPA exposure may increase risk of miscarriage and male infertility, but according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the words justifiable concern are used. So the intelligent thing to do is start avoiding BPAs more and more each day. Then when additional results are available and additional tests are done, we will not be waving our arms in the air and yelling "Danger, Danger" like Robot from that old TV show Lost In Space.
