Bisphenol A (BPA) Dalam Botol Susu Polycarbonate

Akhir-akhir ini, timbul pula isu bahan kimia berbahaya dalam botol susu plastik polycarbonate. Bahan kimia yang dimaksudkan itu ialah Bisphenol A atau BPA yang terkandung dalam botol susu plastik polycarbonate.

Berikut dua petikan artikel dari 'thegreenguide.com' dan 'Utusan Malaysia' sebagai rujukan :

"Depending on whom you talk to, BPA (Bisphenol A) is either perfectly safe or a dangerous health risk. The plastics industry says it is harmless, but a growing number of scientists are concluding, from some animal tests, that exposure to BPA in the womb raises the risk of certain cancers, hampers fertility and could contribute to childhood behavioral problems such as hyperactivity."
