Plastic or glass bottles
Are plastic bottles safe?
BPA bottles are no longer manufactured in the European Union and their sale is not allowed. But what is BPA? It is a chemical compound that is used to make plastics such as polycarbonate and epoxy resins.
These two substances are part of the composition of almost everything: they are in CDs, in sunglasses, in cars, in toothbrushes and, also, in baby bottles and children’s dishes, among others, and, Although they are legal, they are not innocuous because if they come into contact with food they can give off substances harmful to health.
Are plastic baby bottles safe?
Studies conducted with this substance in animals have revealed that exposure to BPA, even in very low doses, can affect the hormones of development, fertility, influence behavior and even promote the formation of tumors. More recent research has shown that BPA can also cause metabolic, cardiovascular, hepatic and diabetes-related disorders.
And if we take into account that children absorb more toxic substances and eliminate them worse, because in relation to their weight, they eat and drink three or four times more than adults, which causes them to ingest more contaminants in proportion, and that their liver and your kidneys eliminate toxins worse, protection against toxins during the first two years of life should be a priority.
So, are plastic bottles and children’s tableware safe for children? Although not all, certain types of plastic are not recommended. To get rid of doubts, look at the bottom of the bottle. If you see a number 7 inside the recycling triangle symbol, you could have BPA and you have to throw it away, but if you see a 2 or a 5, quiet, they are safe for children. However, some experts recommend using the glass bottle because it is safer for health and has less environmental impact. The “good” plastics are those marked with numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5. However, it is advisable to take a series of precautions so that their components do not pass into food or drinks and end up inside our organism. Avoid habits such as heating food in the microwave in plastic containers because heat facilitates the exchange of molecules. Always pass food to a glass container.
