Baby teething rings contain BPA despite manufacturers' 'nontoxic' claims

A new study by the American Chemical Society has a warning for parents of babies and toddlers. A staggering 100 percent of the 59 most popular teething rings were found to contain hormone-disrupting chemicals. 
           
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals — namely bisphenol A, bisphenol S and bisphenol F — are banned from use in products for children due to an increased risk of cancer, heart disease and obesity. The invisible toxins are also believed to cause neurological and behavioral disorders like autism and ADHD, affect IQ and increase the risk of diabetes, male infertility and endometriosis.

However, no tests have ever been carried out on plastic teethers — until now. Shockingly, although the majority of the 59 teething rings were labeled BPA-free or nontoxic, every single one of them contained BPA.

Before mass panic ensues, it should be noted that the levels of BPA in these teething rings is low — lower than the European standards for temporary tolerable daily intake levels.

The FDA continues to assure consumers that the levels of BPA in food packaging are safe.

No wonder at all.
We are legally poisoned every day with full faith and blessing of the US gov.

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.
