How to avoid BPA in your diet

Unfortunately, the major way for bisphenol-A (BPA) to get into your body is through diet. From the ways we cook to the foods we choose, we are exposed to small amounts of BPA every day. The problem is that high levels of BPA exposure has been implicated in a host of health issues, from higher rates of heart disease to diabetes and infertility in men.

If this doesn't sound like much fun to you, follow these steps to reduce the amount of BPA you're exposed to each day.

    Biphenol A, B, C, D, etc., all Hormone Disrupters. "BP-A FREE" plastic ware is being sold en masse by major supermarkets. This is a clever "Con Trick". There are many forms of this chemical, Biphenol A, B, C, D, etc., all Hormone Disrupters! Other components of this Biphenol range are being substituted. BP-S is being used in some plastic ware and just as DANGEROUS. 90 percent of CREDIT CARD RECEPTS are coated with "Biphenol S (BP-S)" the mechanical heat printing mechanism requires BP-S, with shop assistants and the public in constant skin/hand (fingers to face etc) contact. The latest estimates of C-Card skin exposure are 19 times higher than with plastic ware contact/ingestion. A majority of young people work in retail, one can assume they might later want families. Good Luck!! What are the shop assistants Union doing about it? Nothing!! The 'Money Lenders and their Health Care Controllers' continue to INSIDEOUSLY sicken the population. If its not Fluoridated water contaminated with Industrial Grade Pollutants -- heavy metal poisons (that's how they Fluoridate drinking water with “Industry waste", then its everyday BP-S Retail Receipts. Be Aware of how 'Tricky' they are!! WE ARE ALL AFFECTED – just try to avoid contact if you can! And the University boffins and the so called 'medical profession' don't utter a peep! Too busy with their retirement stocks and ripping off the system!! -- HA
