Update on Bisphenol A

Here's more update about the infamous Bisphenol A (BPA) (read my previous post about BPA here):

BPA can migrate into Polycarbonate baby bottles when microwaved.. although at very low levels, suggested a new study.

Here is the article link for concerned mothers.

Fortunately we don't use microwave. But do you think boiling in hot water also can give the same effect? You know, sometime sterilize the bottles by boiling them.

Thanks for the dessert recipe.

Thanks for your prayers, my son has been discharged from hospital this afternoon. :)

I'll make him the dessert this weekend. :)

Ah.. I'm not too sure about the boiling part dear. I've read that plastics do break down after sometime due to all the cleaning. And yes, fat content and heat are two of the contributors too. So be careful. Look for baby bottles that do not have the #7 at the bottom as BPA is used.

Was telling my mum about this BPA thingy. She said should have stuck to using glass baby bottles since my brother's time. It's much safer!

Hi Sher,

I have long ago been convinced that the food, chemical, and drug manufacturers in America are the most obnoxious types of businessmen who foist all sorts of chemicals that are harmful to the human race. These 3 industries seem to be in connivance. One makes the chemicals, the other applies it to food, and the third provide the medicines for the subsequent ailment.

Even their medicines are harmful, to the kidneys and liver. And, they rake in a lot of money and are protected by the FDA. These are the hidden monsters of the world. :-( --Durano, done!

Durano the man!!
I totally agree with you.
I am so amazed how much chemicals actually go into our food. That's why I'm calling for a Natural Food movement. Sans preservatives. No additives!
Food should taste good on its own without being dressed up to hide its goodness!
