BPA is made out of three highly poisonous materials. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical discovered by a Russian scientist, A.P. Dianin, in 1891. BPA is made with acetone, phenol and hydrochloric acid.

1. Acetone is a strong solvent, the main or only ingredient in nail 
polish remover.


2. Phenol, also known as carbolic acid, is an antiseptic and a caustic 
poison. During World War II, the Nazis used phenol injections for rapid 
executions in concentration camps.


3. Hydrochloric acid, or muriatic acid, is a strong corrosive mineral acid frequently used to 
clean mineral deposits in swimming pools.


 

Obviously, not a very friendly agent.....:).


Are these any products that you want anywhere near your food? I don't think so......

 

BPA = Acetone + Phenol + Hydrochloric Acid

 

The most important thing to remember is that BPA is an important 
ingredient in hard, see-through plastics and some resins. BPA is used to
make plastic baby bottles, plastic cutlery, dishes, bowls, the lining 
in food and beverage cans, dental sealants, and many other products. 


Most products that contain BPA have a 7 or 3 on the bottom

 

Most food in tin cans contains a lining, and testing shows that food in 
tin cans has higher levels of BPA than even baby bottles or plastic 
bottles.


How do I avoid it?

 

To avoid ingesting BPA avoid canned foods and eat fresh products, as 
much as possible. Purchase products in glass containers. Store your food
in glass or stainless steel containers and use glass baby bottles. 
Avoid plastic water bottles by using stainless steel water bottles that 
are also reusable. Be mindful, some of the stainless steel bottles on the market have lining.
