If you are put on trial in Canada or the United States for a crime, you are considered innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, Health Canada (and the U.S.) use a similar tactic when it comes to chemicals. Bisphenol A (BPA) has been known for many years to be toxic to humans. In fact it was known back in the 1930’s that BPA had estrogenic-like effects. It is only in the past few years that this chemical has really attracted the attention of the media. Canada has taken a huge step in being the first country in the world to declare that BPA is toxic … GO CANADA! So, many manufacturers are phasing out its use.
In the meantime:
- Avoid products with BPA: cans, plastic water bottles, packaged food, baby bottles, tupperware.
- Do not microwave anything in plastic. This has been shown to leach high amounts of plastics directly into the food. (I recommend you avoid using a microwave altogether).
- Detoxify the body of excess estrogens (find a trained health care practitioner to safely guide you through this process).
- Only use glass, stainless steel, or ceramic to store consumables.
In great health!
