What are BPAs?
BPA stands for Bisphenol A, which is a compound found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are most often used in food and drink packaging, while epoxy resins often coat metal packaging.1
What is the Risk of BPA Exposure?
In recent years, studies have linked BPA with type-2 diabetes, liver abnormalities, cardiovascular disease among other diseases, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). If you're familiar with BPA, you may have also heard of phthalates.
To be at risk for the negative health conditions mentioned above, the following two conditions must exist:
The act of heating and cooling repeatedly increases the risk of leaching BPA, which is why microwaving plastic containers isn’t recommended.
Consistent Long-Term Exposure:
Studies suggest that intermittent contact with BPA doesn't allow enough BPA to be absorbed to cause harm.
