Watch what you pick, when it comes to plastic

on February 4, 2012

Reduce, reuse, recycle…research?  You may remember us talking about bisphenol A, commonly known as BPA once or twice.  It’s a synthetic chemical most commonly used in the production of clear, hard plastic. Unfortunately, it’s also an “endocrine disrupter” and has been shown to negatively affect brain development and fertility.  You do not want to purposefully ingest this into your body.

Sadly, it’s more and more evident that we need to pay as much attention to the container our food and drink as we do the source of our food.  But we are very thankful that there are great resources out there to help make the process easy.  Check out this great chart from Fooducate:

It doesn’t get easier than this.
