We need to avoid Bisphenol A or BPA and retailers need to avoid offering products that contain it.

July 6th, 2010

I was reading my July/August issue of Men’s Health and came across some more useful information that shows how concerned consumers are about BPA.

This author has posted on BPA many times and I continue to warn retailers to find suppliers that offer alternative solutions to products that use BPA.

As a reminder, Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical building block that is used primarily to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastic is a lightweight, high-performance plastic that possesses a unique balance of toughness, optical clarity, high heat resistance, and excellent electrical resistance.

 The question posed by a reader in Men’s Health Magazine was I’m freaked out by BPA. How can I cut down? According to the Ask Men’s Health section edited by Ben Court, you can take the following steps.

1. Avoid canned foods.
2. Avoid Polycarbonate containers
3. Avoid Polycarbonate and aluminum reusable water bottles.
4. Avoid Soda and Beer cans.

Be careful out there.

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
