Before you read any further, I want you to take a moment and go walk around your kitchen. Look at the utensils, pans, plates, everything!
Did you do it…?
If so, was there a commonality you noticed between some of the objects you found? Perhaps you’ll notice that most of the objects are probably plastic…
Nowadays, plastic is everywhere. It’s hard to escape it! To give some quick backstory on the history of plastic, it was invented in the year 1907 with the end-goal of mass-producing products at a much lower cost. Well, it worked!
The matter of fact is plastic became so cheap to produce it became the default for almost any product. Now, the idea of creating plastic at the time was genius because nobody had ever seen anything like it before; however, there’s a catch…
What is Bisphenol-A… (otherwise known as BPA)?
In order for plastic to be as malleable as it is, taking on any shape desired, it needs something called Bisphenol-A- which you also may have heard called BPA for short. So, what is it?
BPA is a chemical used in plastics. It’s an endocrine disruptor- meaning it imitates the body’s hormones and interferes with the production and function of pre-existing, natural hormones. This powerful estrogen mimic gets absorbed into the body through the digestive system and the skin. Basically, when you drink from plastic bottles, store your food in plastic containers, or wash the dishes, you’re assimilating estrogens.
Why BPA is a Problem
With BPA acting as estrogen, the body is likely going to end up with too much of it… Too much estrogen alters your hormonal balance and worsens your PMS, peri-menopausal, and menopausal symptoms. Periods and menopause are already hard enough as it is… let’s not make it any harder on ourselves!
Now in stores you’ll even notice there are products that are advertised as “BPA free”, but unfortunately, some of those products still release some of the chemicals.
How to Limit Estrogen Exposures in a World Full of Plastic
As talked about a little earlier, plastic is everywhere. In fact, it’s in a lot of places that are completely out of our control! So, how do we limit our estrogen exposure in a world full of plastic?
We have five simple solutions to offer:
- Drinking water helps BPA get expelled through the urine
