BPA or Bisphenol A has been in the news recently – lots of people are getting worried about the possible effects it has on your hormones. Pregnant women and babies are felt to be especially vulnerable.
Quick identification – plastics containing BPA are labeled with the number “7” identification code, BUT not all plastics labeled with the number “7” contain BPA. The number “7” code is assigned to the “Other” category, which includes all plastics not otherwise assigned to categories #1-6. See softlanding for more on this
BPA is also found in the plastic linings of most cans of food.
