Are plastics harmful to your health

Add a Comment1 Comments

Sassyfras, thanks for your question. The safety of plastic bottles has come into question over the last few weeks.

While nothing has been confirmed and the government is planning to release a report in the coming weeks about
Bisphenol A, a chemical commonly found in plastics, you may find out whether your bottle contains the chemical.

How do you do that? Turn the bottle over it and check the number inside the triangle. Any bottle with the number 3, 6 or 7 has the potential to release the chemical.

Have you heard of any other tips for identifying this chemical in plastics?
