Most of us know – or should know by now – that bisphenol-A mimics estrogen and can thus interrupt our cells’ reception of hormones. This is called hormone disruption.
But most of us probably figure that drinking from a BPA-lined container won’t do much immediate harm, right? Such a notion is shared by many, but unfortunately, it is wrong. Drinking from a BPA-lined container can cause immediate cardiovascular harm.
The ramifications of such a presumption, if true, is disastrous. Today, bisphenol-A and its supposedly-safer version, bisphenol-S, are found in many plastic food and beverage containers along with the linings of many canned food and beverage containers.
