Hello new Sarasota parents. Today’s Healthy Sarasota Children’s blog focuses on BPA. Bisphenol A (BPA), the dangerous compound used in plastics manufacturing can now be detected everywhere in our environment: in our food, clothing, homes, offices, soil, water: you name it.
‘Since at least 1936 it has been known that BPA mimics estrogens, binding to the same receptors throughout the human body as natural female hormones.’1
What does this mean for Sarasota kids? Numerous scientific studies suggest an increased risk of cancer and neurological problems.
Sarasota infants are the most susceptible to even minute amounts of BPAs. Unfortunately, most infant formula containers and plastic bottles contain BPAs and other toxins.
What can Sarasota parents do to reduce the risk of these chemicals finding their way into their child’s formula or baby food?
1) Do not heat plastic containers in the microwave.
2) Do not wash plastic containers in hot water.
3) Consider using glass bottles and containers.
These are simple steps that any Sarasota parent or day-care provider can take. Toss your plastic bottles today! For more information about children’s health issues, call me at 941-216-5727.
