Healthcare cost keeps on rising. One of the contributor is intake of harmful chemicals without knowledge. These create additional strain on already stretched out healthcare system. For example, plastic containers may harm your brain. Bisphenol A (BPA), the chemical used in making plastic containers, might impair many brain functions such as learning and remembering.
The Canadian researchers fear that it could be a factor behind Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia and depression. BPA is globally used in making plastic water bottles, baby food bottles, food containers, etc. In their study, the researchers at the University of Guelph, near Toronto, found that BPA might be leaking into the solid or liquid foods kept in the plastic containers.
