In case you didn’t see it this morning, the Today Show featured a segment on BPA in plastics (link to video). They mostly concentrated on plastics in water bottles, recommending that you do NOT reuse regular water bottles. They also informed viewers about which recycle numbers are best to avoid.
And they strongly recommended that you stay away from plastics with #7 in them. Now we’ve been recommending that for quite a while, so it’s good to see some big media finally letting people know about BPA and its effects on people.
They only briefly touched on baby bottles, though. We wish they had gone into more detail about how BPA is harmful to children and emphasized that parents should look at bottles, pacifiers, sippy cups, and teethers. But hopefully this will get more parents to check out the plastics in their homes.
