What is BPA & Phthalates and why should you choose a natural pacifier for your baby?
Bisphenol A, otherwise known as BPA, and Phthalates are chemical compounds primarily used in manufacturing of plastics. The United States government toxicologists recently concluded based on animal studies that BPA and Phthalates present concern for harmful effects on development of the prostate and brain and for behavioral changes in fetuses, infants and children. While a handful of states are taking steps in banning BPA and phthalates in children’s toys and child care items, these harmful chemicals were banned in European toys a decade ago.
