Mmmmmm… there’s nothing more refeshing on a hot day than a nice big bottle of cold Bisphenol A.
Whenever we drink from a plastic bottle, no matter what it’s carrying, a harmful chemical named bisphenol A (BPA) enters our body along with the liquid. Six months ago, the European Food Safety Authority (ESPA) stated that human exposure to the element in under safety limits and posed no health risks, however, a new research conducted by the University Of Missouri has found about 0.5mg BPA per kilo of body weight; this is about ten times the prescribed safety limits.
University researchers have stated that extensive and continuous exposure to BPA could not be dismissed as harmless. They have also stated that EFSA should not pretend that BPA is safe – rather they should try to educate people to make as little use of plastic bottles as possible.
