Surprising Sources of BPA

Lately I’ve been seeing a steady growth in products with labels “BPA free” – from baby bottles to yoga mats. However, we all know BPA (or Bisphenol A) is everywhere. Still, I was surprised by some BPA sources on this list which I hadn’t really give much thought to previously. Here’s a few that might surprise you:

  • Receipts
  • Pizza Boxes
  • Toilet Paper
  • Beer and wine
  • Dental sealants
  • Sunglasses and eyeglasses
  • Blenders and Food Processors

So you make a fruit smoothie to take in antioxidants, you drink a glass of red wine for your heart health, you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from U.V. rays, but they all contain hormone disruptors linked to cancer? Seriously, what’s a health-conscious consumer to do? Read here for the entire list of products containing BPA and some suggested solutions.
