The "Safe" Replacement For BPA Might Be Just As Toxic
Bisphenol-A (BPA), an estrogen-mimicking compound found in plastic, store receipts, soup cans, water bottles and other products, is potentially toxic. That has been drilled into our heads so much over the past few years that companies have scrambled to remove the compound from their products. Next time you’re in the grocery store, count the products that proudly proclaim they’re BPA-free.
There’s just one problem. Bisphenol-S (BPS), the so-called safe alternative to BPA, disrupts estrogen hormones in disturbingly similar ways to BPA. The safe alternative isn’t so safe after all.
