There is a growing number of BPA-free labels. What it means? Is it dangerous to have BPA in something?
What is BPA? And dangerous?BPA, or bisphenol A, is a synthetic organic material. They experimented with it in the mid-twenties and realized that it would be hard, resilient and translucent. Today, BPA is already available in many products, e.g. contact lenses, DVDs, and even some snacks. They say there are products that have BPA and don't seem to bother anyone, even though other products are said to be BPA-free, suggesting that it is better. The Index was trying to find out if we were afraid of BPA now or not. BPA has an interesting feature that we know from the 30's, and that is that has a similar effect to estrogen. This means that you are interfering with your hormone balance. This has also been confirmed by a number of studies. This is the intervention and its effect can be linked to a number of diseases: infertility, cancer, thyroid problems, to name but a few.Research and discussion about BPA are more about the amount of money that is really worth it. All the research that goes into making one of the most important products in a $ 400 billion industry every year, telling you how much you can use - whatever study comes out, it automatically comes with the suspicions - who does it? index article.In 2010, the EU Food Chain and Food Committee banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and restricted its use in all food contact materials. The permissible migration limits are as low as 0.6 mg / kg, and BPA is not considered a risk at this intake. So far, the European Commission has presented a draft it should be sorted. Making it happen by mid-2018.All the way it seems, if there is a BPA-free label on the bottles, it is nothing more than blank marketing, because it is true for all the bottles, not something. On the other hand, it appears that the EU only authorizes the marketing of plastic products, in which BPA is below the limits. (Chinese imports play in many shades of Chinese stuff, adds the Index right now.) We could go back here, but unfortunately we would make a big mistake. The results of a 2015 study call our attention to the Index article, which states that substances used to substitute bisphenol in BPA-free products initiate the same hormonal , where ever: there is something in the plastic that is not good for our body, and we can only trust that we bring in too little of it to cause trouble. Which is not to say that there are no long-term studies in the BPA (nor any of its marginal effects). it is advisable to pay more attention to BPA intake in adults and children, during pregnancy, in the health of the fetus or in young children.
