Yesterday, we reported on a big, scary study about the impact of bisphenol-A (BPA) on fish, in which the known endocrine disrupter prompted interspecies mating. But that’s not all BPA does–and it’s not just found in labs. In fact, many common household and workplace items may still contain the toxic plastic chemical. Is your home or office harboring one of these sources of BPA?
The FDA still considers BPA safe at low levels of exposure–but more and more evidence is stacking up against the stuff. And until there’s a wholesale ban on the chemical (and we’re sure it won’t just be replaced with another, equally-if-not-more-toxic substance), the best way to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy is to know where it lurks, and how to avoid it. So here’s a list of places BPA may be hiding–just to be on the safe side.
