The FDA claims that it’s “safe” in low levels but it adds up quickly and can be hazardous to our health.

BPA is an endocrine disruptor – a substance that interferes with the production, secretion, transport, action, function and elimination of natural hormones. BPA can imitate our body’s own hormones in a way that could be hazardous for health. Babies and young children are said to be especially sensitive to the effects of BPA. [source]

Why is this a problem? These pesky “fake” hormones can cause…

::Reproductive disorders, affecting egg maturation

::Male impotence, risking erectile dysfuntion

::Killed brain cells

… and the list goes on.

If you’re trying to conceive or are worried about your fertility, BPA is a no-no. And, babies & children are so much more sensitive to BPA.

What I didn’t know is that BPA isn’t limited to food packaging & storage. It’s in medical equipment, safety equipment, electronics, and more [source]. The scary thing? The items don’t need to be heated to transfer into our bodies. They emit BPA by just being.

There’s 1 super easy step we can all take; especially in the summer months, to reduce our exposure to this chemical… use BPA-free popsicle molds!

Here are a couple of my favorite BPA-free popsicle molds::
