No More BPA: a call to action!

Back in December you may remember that Breast Cancer UK launched their No More BPA Campaign  to raise awareness about the dangers of BPA. As part of this campaign, Breast Cancer UK has prepared the No More BPA report, for the use of Government, the media and the public. You can download the report from here These are the recommendations which end the report:

The UK Government should end the use of BPA in baby bottles as a matter of priority by introducing regulations, similar to those already introduced in Canada and expected to be brought about in the US, in order to decrease the exposure to BPA of newborns and very young babies.

There is also a compelling argument for adequate labelling of all food contact items, including those aimed at adults. Scientific studies, particularly those that have demonstrated that BPA exposure to pregnant women can impact on health outcomes in children, warrant serious attention.

The UK Government should introduce measures to ensure that clear labelling is used on all food contact products that contain BPA to allow consumers to make informed choices about their own level of exposure to BPA, and provide advice, in particular to pregnant women and breast cancer patients, on how to reduce their BPA intake levels.

So, what can we as individuals and parents do?

Most importantly we can choose BPA-Free products for our children whenever possible.

Next we can spread awareness by informing and making recommendations to our family and friends, try using this website as a resource http://www.bisphenolafree.org/  

Finally, we can put pressure on our government to sit up and take notice. Breast Cancer UK has made this easy for us to do by including a Take Action page on their No More BPA website. If you fill in the form with your details it will automatically generate a letter to your local MP, asking them to sign the EDM 293 against the use of BPA in Baby Bottles. Simple as that!

So, come on parents! Let’s take action and make sure our government bans the use of BPA in our babies’ products!
