What Do You Know About BPA?
More on the Big Cleanse: looking at other websites and getting ideas for gaining control of my health. Found this post on fastcompany about how to reduce BPA, which is a potentially toxic estrogen-mimicking compound used in plastic production that has been linked to breast cancer, early puberty, infertility, and other maladies. It's dangerous enough that it has been banned in baby bottles in Europe, Canada, and even China--but not in the U.S. So, how important do you think it is to reduce them in your life? Is this something I should do for the health of my family, or is it over-reacting?
