Bisphenol A (BPA)

April 29, 2008

Recently, I have been watching the news and found out more about the Bisphenol A.  It is present in plastic bottles. What made me feel really sick was that the chemical could increase the chance of breast and ovarian cancer cell growth and the growth of some prostrate cancer cells in animals. That means that there is an increased chance of ovarian, breast and prostrate cancer in humans.

I think that it is from our cutlery and waterbottles. At home, I use metal plates and metal cutlery and glass bowls so that is not a problem.

For an average person, their bottles are polycarbonate bottles. So, we would consume some bisphenol A. The BPA is released fast as we use bottles to store liquids. It would be even faster if we put hot liquids in.

So, sometime ago, I wanted to buy a Klean Kanteen bottle. It is a stainless steel bottle. I did not know where I could buy my bottles for I live in Singapore and did not want to waste my time shipping it over from the USA. Morever, I wanted it quick.

So, I searched the internet and found a shop, called SingHealthStore. It’s website is www.singhealthstore.com and is based in Singapore. I called and bought the product. They even delivered it straight to my house door. You could just call and they will let you buy it. You have the option of going to their office or having them deliver it to your house for a small fee.

It is on offer now so it is very cheap. So quickly, buy it!


Metal water bottles

December 10, 2007

I hate using plastic water bottles, they have that weird plastic taste and smell. Also, I heard it is unhealthy using plastic, so I always use metal bottles.

Also, plastic contibutes to global warming, so I am trying to reduce my usage of plastic. So, I advice those that are concerned on global warming to use metal instead of plastic bottles.

There is a good brand making metal waterbottles: Klean Kanteen, but is not in Singapore. Recently, they had a retailer here in Singapore- SingHealthStore: www.singhealthstore.com . They sell at reasonable prices. They aren’t open yet, but you can email or call them to buy the products. They will let you buy the products before the shop opens.

YAY! I’m going to have a metal bottle soon. YAY!!!
