Host: What feasible steps can I take to help with BPA?
Michael Schade: Well, parents can take simple steps to protect their children's health. The good news is that there are safer products that are out there, and for the most part, for the products that we are most concerned about it's easy for parents to identify whether or not a product contains Bisphenol A. Most plastics have a recycling symbol on the side of it or underneath of it. The number that you find inside the recycling symbol indicates what type of plastic that this is. Plastics that contain Bisphenol A have the number 7 inside the recycling symbol, and sometimes it will also say the letters PC underneath the recycling symbol.
So to identify products that contain Bisphenol A, parents want to avoid plastics that have the number 7 inside the recycling symbol and the letters PC underneath the recycling symbol. There are safer baby bottles that are out there that don't contain this harmful chemical. So for instance, you can buy a baby bottle that's made out of glass which is much safer for our health and environment. There is also safer plastics that are out there, that also don't contain this harmful chemical. For instance, baby bottles can be made out of Polyethylene Plastic or Polypropylene plastic which are the numbers 1, 2 or 5 plastics.
So parents can look for plastics that are marked in number 1, 2 or number 5 for baby bottles to ensure that they are not exposing their children to this unnecessary harmful chemical.
