Plastic Alert For Langley Parents

   Posted by: Phil   in Child Health

Plastic Alert For Langley Parents Hello new Langley parents. Today’s Healthy Langley Children’s blog focuses on BPA. Bisphenol A (BPA), the dangerous compound used in plastics manufacturing can now be detected everywhere in our environment: in our food, clothing, homes, offices, soil, water: you name it.

‘Since at least 1936 it has been known that BPA mimics estrogens, binding to the same receptors throughout the human body as natural female hormones.’1

What does this mean for Langley kids? Numerous scientific studies suggest an increased risk of cancer and neurological problems.

Langley infants are the most susceptible to even minute amounts of BPAs. Unfortunately, most infant formula containers and plastic bottles contain BPAs and other toxins.

What can Langley parents do to reduce the risk of these chemicals finding their way into their child’s formula or baby food?

 

1) Do not heat plastic containers in the microwave.
2) Do not wash plastic containers in hot water.
3) Consider using glass bottles and containers.

These are simple steps that any Langley parent or day-care provider can take. Toss your plastic bottles today! For more information about children’s health issues, call me at 604.943.8598.
