Posts Tagged ‘Bisphenol A’

You wait a week for a blog and then 2 come along at once… I caught the tail end of the news tonight highlighting a British study linking Bisphenol A to various types of cancers.

I’ve previously looked into the ingredient list in the limited amount of LDPE used in the construction of a carton (used to keep it waterproof) and am pleased to reaffirm that LDPE does not contain the organic compound Bisphenol A. I’m afraid the same can’t be said for those water bottles a lot of the gymns are using (apparently) so do keep your eyes open for what you drink out of.

Those who know me also know that I am not a scientist, so here’s a link to a far more scientific explanation of what Bisphenol A is which clearly states that LDPE does not use Bisphenol A in the polymerization or package forming and thus will not leach bisphenol A into food or beverages.

We’ve gone a little further lately and I hope to soon share the results of a successful carbon test we’ve had underway proving the integrity of Aquapax as a leach free package for our water in paper cartons beyond any doubt. (Just waiting for the lab to write up their report findings.)

Stay happy and remember, a little bit of paranoia never hurt anyone – all things in moderation is what I say. 🙂
