Nutritionist Melanie McGrice shares her advice
ABPA or bisphenol A is a chemical used
in the production of polycarbonate plastics, so it’s found in plastic bags, plastic water bottles, plastic cutlery and the plastic coverings on food. Although
authorities confirm that we don’t consume enough BPA to be concerned about any side effects, it’s worth reducing your exposure where possible by using glass containers
instead of plastic containers in microwaves and dishwashers, using flasks instead of plastic drink bottles
and using BPA-free plastic wrap to cover leftovers. These changes can also be better for the environment!
