What is BPA?
Bisphenol- A (BPA) is a chemical compound that is a key ingredient in the creation of polycarbonate plastic, a hard, clear plastic used widely in consumer products, including baby bottles and food containers.
Invented in the 19th century, BPA has been heavily used in the commercial production of polycarbonates and some PVCs for over 50 years. A growing body of scientific research suggests that the chemical may leach out of polycarbonate feeding bottles and containers, especially when the contents are acidic, high in fat, or heated. Research also suggests that BPA may act as an endocrine disruptor, a substance which mimics natural human hormones and could cause developmental and neurological problems in children such as early puberty, and attention disorder syndromes. Further studies have shown an association between BPA and heart disease, diabetes and high levels of liver enzymes, while the U.S. National Institutes of Health in September 2008 determined there was some concern about BPA`s effects on fetal and infant brain development.
In October 2008 the Canadian federal government declared BPA a hazardous substance and placed it on the list of toxic substances. At the same time large retail chains throughout Canada began voluntarily to remove polycarbonate products from their shelves. In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been lately been encouraged to re-examine its stance on BPA by the Union of Concerned Scientists.

BornFree specializes in producing smart and safe baby products. BornFree has developed a range of products that are free of the potentially dangerous chemicals bisphenol-a (bpa), phthalates and pvc. Bpa is a known estrogen mimicker that is used in the production of polycarbonate plastic. According to researchers, bpa may cause developmental and neurological problems if it leaches from plastic. Reports suggest that small amounts of bpa may leach into food or beverages stored in polycarbonate containers, especially when the contents are heated. In addition, BornFree's cups and bottles feature the unique BornFree venting system, designed to reduce colic and ear infections. We will shortly be extending our product line to include more high quality toxin-free products.

This gum brush teether is the best teether I have ever purchased. My daughter LOVES having her gums brushed after her meals and it is her favorite toy. Although I did not buy the teether at this site, I will in the future because it's cheaper here than anywhere else I've looked.
