The Impact of Bisphenols in Plastics: Health Risks and How to Protect Yourself

Bisphenols, which are used in plastics, are everywhere, and they include BPA, BPF, and BPS.

It is estimated that 95% of the US population has detectable levels of these bisphenols inside their bodies.

Research has shown that those who have the highest concentrations of bisphenols inside their bodies, compared to the lowest, show an increased risk of developing the following conditions:

  • 73% higher risk of a heart attack.
  • 200% increased risk of Type II Diabetes.
  • 74% higher risk of obesity.
  • 600% higher risk of ADHD, together with a drop in IQ in children.

As I have been saying for years, the best strategy is to stay away from plastics, even if they are BPA-free.
