German researchers have revealed the presence of high doses of Bisphenol A in blood and umbilical cord of pregnant women and mapped its presence with the occurrence of abnormalities in fetuses and newborns.
Even at very low doses causes these effects, since they accumulate in the body with regular consumption, widespread and continued for years.

Directions to avoid them
Plastic containers, even in the microwave should not be heated.
Plastic containers must not contain hot drinks.
They should not be washed in the dishwasher, the heat makes the harmful particles are shed.
Avoid canned food, the inside of the cans may contain Bisphenol a. nor cans should be heated.
Better to use glass containers or products indicating that they are “Phthalate-free” or “Free of Bisphenol A”, stainless steel…
The repeated use of plastic bottles is damaging above all if they arenot reusable, which are the vast majority.
Do I know which container I’m acquiring?
There are more than 100 types of plastics, but the most commonly used are seven, and it identifies them with a number inside a triangle to facilitate sorting for recycling.
The bottles marked with a “7″, (also called Lexan) should be avoided completely, because they emit BPA in the liquid.”
Marked with the number “3″ (polyvinyl chloride/PVC) can also shed BPA and phthalates.
Marked with the number “6 (polystyrene/PS), styrene is a potentially toxic chemical that is released from containers made of polystyrene when used to store or heat food or liquids at temperatures greater than 80° C.”You can damage the nervous system.
The bottles marked with “1″ (polyethylene terephthalate/PET or PETE) should be used only once. ”
Types 2, 4, and 5 are the safest options.
Is important to avoid the use of plastic bottles in babies and even more heat the contents on them. It is best to replace them with bottles of glass that are currently marketed and that an external protector that prevents any kind of break.
Bottles of beverages and containers of glass or stainless steel, are also practically recyclable 100% and almost as light as plastic. They are free of chemicals such as Bisphenol A BPA (), and are safe to use with hot liquids.
In the market there are currently some bottles of hard plastic whose material is Tritan, the Tritan is a safe material free of BPA (Bisphenol A) withstanding temperatures between – 20 ° and 100 °. These containers can be put in the dishwasher up to a temperature of 100 ° C.
Long ago that I use stainless steel or glass bottles, home of glass are very comfortable using, but when you have to travel, go for a walk to the field or spend a day of beach glass is not desirable first of all by its “insecurity” due to possible breakage and secondly by the weight that we are carrying… I am now very happy with my bottle of Tritan, light, resistant and with great capacity!
I found my bottle Tritan in Decathlon, in the area of the crossing at a very reasonable price €4.95, have several models and colors! on the label you indicate well in large BPA FREE…
