6 Ways to Reduce Your BPA Exposure
1. Avoid plastic water bottles. Get a high quality, BPA-free stainless steel reusable water bottle and refill it.
2. Avoid using plastic food storage containers. Opt for glass or stainless steel instead.
3. Avoid microwaving food in plastic containers.
4. If you must use any plastic, be sure it is BPA-free.
5. Stop using plastic cooking utensils. Choose renewable bamboo instead.
6. If you’re choosing plastic toys for children, be sure they are BPA-free.
5 Other Things You Can Do to Protect Yourself
1. Eat a diet high in fiber since fiber binds to toxins like BPA to help escort them out of the body.
2. Eat more beans.
3. Add a scoopful of brown rice fiber to your smoothie or as a supplement to bind to BPA.
4. Drink green tea to help burn fat.
5. Use metabolism-boosting spices like cayenne and other chilies.
