This Harmful Chemical Is Still Being Used In Popular Household Products

A dangerous chemical substance is being used in common household products. It’s been linked to myriad health issues in adults, children, and even unborn babies, and it was once approved for use by the FDA.

Bisphenol A (BPA) has been known to negatively affect fetal and infant brain development, as well as interfere with memory and the brain’s basic learning processes. Under the permission of the FDA, it was once used in several types of children’s products such as baby bottles and formula packaging.

Only in 2010 did the FDA rule that BPA could no longer be used in these products.

The FDA did not ban BPA from baby bottles until 2010.

Despite the ban on BPA in baby bottles, recent studies show that newborns are still being exposed to the chemical.

“Infants may be exposed to BPA before they were born because of the mothers’ exposures, during exposure to plastic tubing if they are in the ICU (intensive care unit) in the hospital, or  through the breast milk,” the National Center for Health Research reports. “Pregnant women and nursing mothers may want to try to avoid foods and beverages from containers lined with BPA, such as canned foods and sodas.”

BPA is found in many plastics, and has been linked to serious health issues.

Exposure to BPA is a concern because of the possible health effects on the brain and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children, the Mayo Clinic reports. BPA can affect children’s behavior, possibly prompting increased blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

According to Healthline, “BPA can bind to estrogen receptors and influence bodily processes, such as growth, cell repair, fetal development, energy levels, and reproduction,” because of its estrogen-like shape. A study in Endocrine Review further details how BPA may also interact with other hormone receptors, such as those for your thyroid, thus altering their function.

BPA is still used in the linings of some soda cans.

As Mujtaba Ellahi and Mamoon ur Rashid write in Intechopen, “in different parts of the world, BPA has been detected in human saliva, serum, urine, amniotic fluid, umbilical cord blood, and placental tissues. BPA has also been detected in human nails, hair, the dermis, breast, and in subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue. Most of the scientific studies (over 130) have reported seven harmful effects of BPA, including breast cancer, early puberty, heart diseases, infertility in males and females, as a catalyst for multiple negative brain variations, and obesity.”

With all of the serious health risks BPA presents, why is it still being used in any products at all?

Canned foods are also commonly lined with BPA.

There are perfectly safe alternatives to BPA, yet manufacturers continue to use the chemical. Click below and ask the chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions to draft legislation that would ban BPA in ALL consumer products.
