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.**BornFree BPA-Free Clear Pacifier comes in Blue/Yellow and Green/Orange Due to manufacturer's restrictions, desired color may not be specified when ordering. You will receive one of these colors at random. Sorry for any inconvenience.**
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.
