How to Lower BPA Exposure

BPA is an “endocrine disruptor” with a mounting list of potential, adverse health effects.

Here are simple steps you can take to lower your exposure to this concerning compound. Please note that a developing fetus (thus pregnant women) and young children are most vulnerable to its toxic effects.

  • Limit consumption of canned foods and beverages. Look for “BPA-free” canned goods (becoming more available) or buy things in glass or other non-metal containers.
  • Avoid plastics with recycle #7 or labeled with PC (polycarbonate).
  • Do not microwave in plastic containers or use plastic wraps in the microwave.
  • Avoid touching thermal paper cash register receipts. Opt to not receive your receipt or wash your hands after handling them.
