Many plastic bottle companies today over-use the phrase “BPA Free”. But does this mean it is still safe for the human body?
Bisphenol A or in short BPA is a carbon based synthetic compound frequently found in plastics. After several studies found negative side effects on fetuses and infants via BPA, the U.S Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of baby bottles that contain BPA since 2012. Many replaced BPA with bisphenol S (BPS), not knowing that this is as harmful as BPA.
