 Important information for new parents:
Parents who heat plastic baby bottles risk feeding their children a synthetic hormone linked with medical, reproductive and developmental problems, according to a University of Missouri study. The chemical -bisphenol A- is used in making hard ploycarbonate plastic and leaches out of the bottles when heated or filled with hot liquids, researchers said. Bisphenol A is a synthetic oestrogen that can cause feminisation in boys, an onset of early puberty in girls, prostate and breast cancer, and some forms of diabetes. ( Full report NZ Herald 11.2.08 A3) also read Plastic not fantastic NZ Herald 9th Jan 2010 by Chris Barton
