Bisphenol-A free Baby Bottles

Is your baby's bottle toxic? Baby's Toxic Bottles, a study by a team of US and Canadian researchers has shown that plastic polycarbonate baby bottles leach dangerous levels of Bisphenol-A (BPA) when heated. All five brands tested,Evenflo, Dr Browns, Avent, Playtex and Gerber, leached BPA. Adults should also be aware of the dangers as popular "Nalgene" bottles and other water bottles are made of the same type of plastic.

BPA, a common component in clear plastic, is a hormone-disrupting synthetic estrogen. According to the study, even at very low doses, BPA’s mimicry of estrogen resulted in an array of health maladies including prostate and breast cancer, early onset of puberty, obesity, hyperactivity, lowered sperm count, miscarriage, diabetes, and altered immune system in animal studies.The hormone like chemical could be the reason for overall rates of lower sperm counts, faster onset of puberty, and increased prostate cancer in humans.

The good news is that you have now great alternative to polycarbonate baby bottles, Adiri Natural Nurser and Green to Grow are both free of BPA and phthalate, another chemicals suspected of lowering testosterone in men.

Stumbled upon your site. It's great. I am going with glass bottles...plastic is freaky. However, glass bottles are purt near impossible to find! I had to order online from three different sources. The other great thing about glass is that they work great for breast milk storage.

I love the Aidiri; I just received them today and they are even better than I imagined. It is so much like a breast! I can't believe no one thought of this before!
