Do BPA-free plastics still leach hormones into food?

Do BPA-free plastics still leach hormones into food?

Is that non-BPA container you just purchased actually safe?

Are you avoiding BPA plastics after learning about their many health risks, that in particular impact the fetus and developing child?

GREAT!!

But…

Did you also know that non-BPA plastics could be an ever bigger risk?

All plastics are a health risk and leak xeno estrogens. Glass, wood and even metal are much better

Studies suggest that many alternatives to BPA sold in stores may still be dangerous estrogen mimickers and/or endocrine disruptors – particularly when used with hot foods or liquids.

While this does include bisphenol S (which some have already red flagged), it goes well beyond just one type to include various copolymers, forms of phthalates and other industrial plastics which still demonstrate interference with hormones in the endocrine system. In short, a range of many – perhaps even most – plastics sold for food consumption.

A study published in Environmental Health Perspectives in 2011 found upsetting conclusions about many of the commercially available alternatives to BPA – a known hormone disruptor and suspected carcinogen:

Most Plastic Products Release Estrogenic Chemicals: A Potential Health Problem That Can Be Solved (Chun Z. Yang, Stuart I. Yaniger, […] and George D. Bittner)

According to this study, the results from numerous stress tests involving high levels of UV and heat on several varieties of plastics were enough to give pause to consumer confidence, to say the least:

Almost all commercially available plastic products we sampled—independent of the type of resin, product, or retail source—leached chemicals having reliably detectable EA, including those advertised as BPA free. In some cases, BPA-free products released chemicals having more EA than did BPA-containing products.
