Not that I needed any more research reports to convict me of the evils of plastic, but there is another recent comprehensive report substantiating my paranoia:
The above study shows that every major baby bottle on the market was tested for the culprit Bisphenol-A, which is well established as a cause of cancer, impaired brain development, immune system issues, obesity, diabetes, early onset of puberty - in short, BpA is a particularly harmful toxin. And as the study concludes in their testing, every baby bottle tested contained BpA and it leached into [insert your baby]'s milk when the bottle was heated or washed with a harsh detergent! Argh!!!
That's the bad news. There is no good news, but an interesting angle on this is that at least now we have a very credible piece to the puzzle of why such an alarming number of children in the U.S. these days suffer from allergies, obesity, early puberty, etc.
A more uplifting post to come, I promise.
