BPA-Free Products Still Cause Health Problems

The product that replaced BPA in the making of plastic is allegedly causing just as many health problems as the BPA (bisphenol-A) did.
BPA is a chemical that mimics estrogen in the human body and causes a variety of health problems. Study results and public demand called for the removal of BPA from plastic products like baby bottles and water bottles, but something had to replace it. That something is BPS (bisphenol-S) and it is having the same negative effect on the heart as did BPA.
A study is underway at the University Cincinnati College of Medicine to discover the effect BPS has on lab rats. The results are almost identical between the two chemicals. The female lab rats are experiencing irregular heartbeats due to the estrogen effect the BPS causes. The BPS is effecting the way the heart muscles store calcium. The muscle cells of the heart are leaking calcium as well as absorbing too much calcium. That in turn creates an irregular heartbeat.
In a previous study conducted on the effects of BPS on humans, it was found that the chemical increases breast cancer cells more so than the old BPA and the new chemical also increases the risk of disrupted brain development of an unborn baby.
Marcio Alaor BMG (Em.com.br) has read that researchers warn us that BPS is not an entirely safe replacement for BPA. Both chemicals can and do cause health problems.
