Bisphenol A banned in baby bottles


From 1 March 2011 the production of polycarbonate baby bottles containing the plasticizer bisphenol A (BPA), is banned in the EU. From 1 June 2011 BPA-containing bottles may not be sold. With this the EU follows the approach of individual countries of the European Union.

 

BPA is a starting material for the synthesis of polycarbonate and epoxy resins, from which a multitude of the everyday lives technical products and food containers such as water bottles, storage containers, plates and cups, but also baby bottles and pacifiers are made. BPA can be released from the plastic – so it was proven in drinks, which were bottled in synthetic coated cans.

 

The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment does not see a health problem, caused by little amounts of BPA that can be absorbed through the food. The Federal Environmental Agency, however, considers that the precautionary measures are justified. The focus lies on the hormone-like effects of BPA: "Studies have shown that it enhances the effect of female sex hormones and inhibits the male sex hormones and thyroid hormones" (Source: Federal Environment Agency).In addition, it is indicated that there is a connection between diabetes and cardiovascular disease due to bisphenol-A. Against this background, the ban on BPA-tainted baby bottles in the EU is likely only a beginning.

 

The example of bisphenol A shows: To ensure that your products can survive on the market, you must react quickly to changing requirements. The basics for this is: precise measurement results within a very short time and second, high scientific expertise together with years of experience in the analysis of products
