I can't stress enough about how dangerous bottled water can be if the plastic bottle contains BPA, better known as Bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles.
BPA is a carbon-based, synthetic compound that is ubiquitous in modern-day life. It’s used in everything from shatter-resistant plastic water bottles and food storage containers to cash register receipts and canned food and drink liners. It’s even in coffee cans and beer kegs. Despite it being literally impossible to fully avoid, BPA toxic effects are now well-documented in medical literature. And the findings are not appetizing. The science shows this hormone-disrupting chemical causes widespread damage throughout our bodies.
I try not to buy plastic items, and instead purchase glass items. Unfortunately, even glass can have BPA, so I do my best to buy our products from trusted places.
Our water can be contaminated with toxins, BPA or fluoride. There was a study about fluoride and autism. Harvard published a study in 2006 that pointed to fluoride as a "developmental neurotoxicant," and this newer study looks to over 27 additional investigations into the matter via meta-analysis. In the previous study, it was already established that fluoride consumption lowered children’s IQ scores. The left-over from industry, passed off as ‘medicine,’ obstructs brain development, and can cause a full spectrum of serious health issues – including autism, dyslexia, ADHD, ADD, and more.
I like to research information so I can understand how we can protect our family from the dangerous side effects of the neurological problems coming from the toxins in our environment. Amazon.com has many different vendors that sell quality BPA-free items.
