Toxic BPA still being used to treat prem babies...

by , 26 March 2013

A new study out of Boston revealed that premature babies are literally awash in a chemical so toxic that it's been banned from baby bottles and sippie cups.

According to the study published in Pediatrics, the average neonatal intensive care unit uses medical devices and products manufactured with the toxic bisphenol A (BPA). This chemical has been linked to asthma, poor brain development, diabetes, prostate cancer and more. 
 
Unfortunately, the typical neonatal unit - where premature babies may spend the first several days or weeks of their lives - still uses products containing this poison. BPA is still a component of intravenous lines, catheters and even ventilators. 
 
The average neonatal baby in the study had levels of BPA in their urine that were up to 32 times higher than children in the general population. And, babies who were placed in the respirators were at the highest risk.
 
If you're in the process of choosing a hospital to give birth to your precious little baby, or know someone who is, enquire whether the hospital has sought to replace their equipment with plastic that doesn't contain BPA. 
 
You’ve been told to avoid it at all costs... But this ‘forbidden’ food could be the biggest health breakthrough of our time...
 
Your whole life, you’ve been warned that this substance can wreak havoc on your health.
 
But the bad rap could be for nothing. Because research proves this shunned food could:
  • Wash away stubborn bladder infections (often in less than 48 hours)
  • Decrease tooth decay by 80%– without having to drop any of your favourite foods
  • Reduce blood clots without the dangerous side effects of aspirin
  • Cut sinus and ear infections by 93% – you can actually feel it working in minutes
  • And you should see how it could help you drop weight!
