How safe is BPA-free plastic? Stainless steel, glass and bamboo kitchen products

See also

Some new studies suggests that plastic products that are labeled BPA-free may still leach other harmful chemicals into food that can cause hormone interruptions in our bodies. There is a need for more research to be done. In the meantime, you may want to consider that glass, stainless steel and other natural food storage and kitchen utensils are among the safest materials to use for food preparation, storage and drinking.

Plastics are still made from chemicals so it’s best to use your own resources and decide what products suit you best when it comes to making selections for your family needs.
