What BPA's cause
BPA's are found in a variety of different products that people use daily. Some examples are:Plastic bottles/packaging (bottled water, soda)Feminine products (pads, tampons)Packaging on baby productsReceipts from grocery stores
The best way to avoid this toxin is to try to avoid plastic packaging. Instead of using plastic containers to store food, consider using glass. Also, use a metal water bottle instead of plastic bottled waters when possible. Look for items labeled "BPA free" when buying things like shampoo, tampons, and baby products. We need to work together to keep ourselves and our children safe!
