Ps 116 : 11 In this case , concerning what plastics are [BPA] free .
I think every Co. that makes and sells plastic containers for liquids and foods advertises that their containers are BPA free , whether they are 1, 2, 3 , 5, 7 , which is not true at all . Again , the only BPA free plastic container is the number “2”. Either they know and don’t care to lie to you , or they really don’t know or understand 2 is BPA free , which is incredible to comprehend .
My brother taught or brought it to my attention about 10 yrs ago .
Below is a statement from an article by [Balance Everyday] ” how to tell if your plastic is BPA free”
Know Your Plastics
You can pretty much assume that any opaque plastics are BPA-free. So, if you can’t see through it, that’s the first step in identifying BPA-free plastics in your home.
For any plastics that fit the description of being hard, clear (or clear-tinted) and unbreakable, flip them over and look for a recycling number. Polycarbonate plastics will have a number 7 on them, but they’re not the only plastic that gets labeled with a 7, so you’ll need to do a bit more investigating.
Look to see if the container is labeled as unbreakable or microwave-safe. If it is, that’s a good indicator that it contains BPA.
- It’s the soft dull looking plastic that is BPA free or safe , not the hard, shiny, clear plastic .
- If you can see through the plastic it’s “nooooooo” good .
It’s hard to believe that there are plastic containers numbered anywhere from 1 to 7 and hardly anyone I talk to at health food stores, supermarkets etc understands or knows that “2” is the only number plastic that you want to drink liquids from . As a matter of fact, not one person who has spring water in hard , shiny containers that I have confronted , had any realization that they are drinking from the wrong plastic . Truly unbelievable .
Here think about this point or thought . Forget everything that is in this post . Just do this experiment . Drink spring spring water in the hard , shiny, clear plastic which is usually 90% of the time the number 1 , and drink spring water with a number “2” at the bottom of the container the dull , soft plastic , and let your tongue tell you which is better tasting .
Remember, both types should be chilled or cold , not ice cold .
Consuming liquids in plastic other than the number “2” can lead to all kinds of health problems like cancer , heart problems , blood disorders etc .
