Study of Plastic Bottles and BPA

Study of Plastic Bottles and BPA

It is called bisphenol A, or BPA. The chemical is currently under much scrutiny and debate because some animal studies have suggested it can interact with the way hormones work in the body. Now, there is news from the University of Cincinnati that plastic bottles release the chemical bisphenol A faster when they’re exposed to hot water. Researchers analyzed plastic bottles and the bottles were tested over seven days to simulate normal use. The results showed that the amount of BPA released was the same for cool and room temperature water, but much higher amounts were released when the bottles were exposed to boiling water.
