Playing Your Exposure to BPAs Could Be Higher Than You Think

Are we being exposed to more BPAs than we think?

The Doctors discuss how the chemical, which is commonly found in plastics and can make its way into water and food. A study claims we are being exposed to BPA levels 44 times higher than what the FDA has deemed safe. We welcome the study’s author Patricia Hunt to explain why this such a concern and how we are being exposed.

She says the chemical can disrupt the body's hormones, especially in young people and babies, and she explains even small amounts of the toxin can have major effects. According to studies, things like the reproductive system, the brain, the mammary glands, the prostate gland, and our metabolism can be affected by BPAs. 

To reduce exposure to BPAs, Patricia says it is important to not use reusable plastic containers and bottles that are showing signs of wear and tear, as they may be leeching chemicals. She also suggests switching from plastic resuable containers and bottles to glass and metal options.
