Bisphenol A (BPAs)
Bisphenol A (also known as BPAs) are found in many plastic products. The compound is used to harden and solidify plastics, making them more durable while also keeping some softness and flexibility.
For years, scientists have been building a strong, research-backed case that BPAs are linked to hormonal disruptions and imbalances in human beings. In fact, BPAs have even been found in human blood and urine in studies on the effects of humans and long-term use of plastic products.
In 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned people about the dangers of BPAs–they were beginning to link them to hormonal imbalances and disruptions to human endocrine systems, which can cause different types of cancer.
While BPAs are one of the most common plastic additives, there are others that pose equally grave threats to human health. Often, when a product is labeled “BPA free,” it likely contains another lesser-known additive that can be just as harmful as the BPAs. Because BPAs are discussed further in health reports, this is often the one companies will remove (and then possibly replace with another chemical instead).
To reduce your risk of exposures to BPAs and other similar plastic additives, consider ditching plastic products as much as possible. For example, there are many ways to reduce the number of plastics in your life.
You can shop with reusable bags, skip the plastic straws in your drinks, carry a metal or glass refillable bottle, and use bath products such as shampoo bars rather than bottled options to cut back on your exposure to plastics. Not only will this reduce your exposure to potentially harmful plastics, but you’ll also do the environment a favor as well.
