BPA has been under a lot of scrutiny lately because it has been found to be harmful to the human body. How harmful? Know one is quite sure but as long term studies are underway, it has been shown more and more to be linked to numerous health issues.

Knowledge is golden and this one is a doozie. If you can avoid buying items with BPA, do so. The current studies are linking it to obesity, neurological issues, thyroid issues and some sexual issues. Many countries have started to seriously limit the amount of Bisphenol A used in the making of plastics.

If you have a baby or young children, please be aware of the harmful side effects. Since children and young adults brains are not fully developed. The more you can do to protect these developing brains the better. Not using BPA can be one of the easiest ways to protect your family. Just look for labels when you go shopping. Many water bottles and other containers now will let you know whether they contain this harmful compound.
