Reading an article by Steve Boggan about chemicals in water bottles and food packaging being linked to health issues, particularly Bisphenol A and phthalates. The article claims that research has shown that these compounds can leach from plastics into the food and drinks that we consume. Apparently one of the biggest concerns about BPA and phthalates s that they act as what scientists call 'environmental oestrogens' so called because they mimic hormones in our bodies . . . I couldn't help but ponder this relative to oestrogens and endo. Interesting.
