Has the world gone mad? Why would there be an unnecessary endocrine disrupting chemical that is linked to early puberty, prostate cancer and breast cancer in baby bottles? Well there are, they are called BPAs (Bisphenol A), they leach from the plastic to the milk and is made worse by heating in the microwave. Canada has recently banned the chemical in baby bottles, yet it is still in many children's toys, cups and formula tin lining! Other countries are not there yet, but it is now easy to buy glass bottles again and some major brands are now fortunately feeling the heat and going BPA free.
