Bisphenol A, also called BPA is an industrial chemical used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. These products are very useful in business, manufacturing, science, engineering and many forms of industries that help the modern human world take its course.
Plastics have played a major role in today’s fast-paced world. It’s flexibility, easy availability and economic advantage over other materials has made it the top choice of many industries; and even households.
Recent scientific hypotheses have articulated that BPA intake can lead to diabetes, cancer, nervous system disorders and other degenerative diseases. This, according to pronouncements of some health professionals, is made possible by using plastic products to contain hot foodstuff that we eat, as plastics have are said to leach BPA when exposed to heat.
Although the effects of BPA intake have not been confirmed by the Food and Drug Administration, these announcements have caused alarm especially to mothers who feed their babies through plastic feeding bottles. But no one has been more concerned about this than Playtex, although its baby bottles are BPA-free.
The alarm triggered by the BPA has made it the most widely studied chemical in the world today, yet not one has come out with solid findings to prove that BPA can cause the diseases that some professionals have connected to it. But Playtex is not depending on these theories simply because the Playtex Baby Bottle is BPA-free.
Playtex Baby Bottles are made from polythylene and is BPA free, as all Playtex products are. It is a product of the Playtex ingenuity with the sole and ultimate purpose of providing not only health, comfort and care for your baby but also peace of mind to the child’s mother. Nothing is really more fulfilling than a worry-free life.
Even if Playtex bottles are declared BPA-free, for the record, I would like to go to the extent of easing your doubts about the effects of BPA. Studies conducted by the American Chemistry Council have determined that exposure to BPA in food contact products has not been proven harmful to children or adults. A recent experiment on rats also shows that that BPA does not affect the brain or the nervous system.
