Have you ever heard the saying “Good Things Come in Glass”? That phrase has been around for as long as I can remember. Over the years I heard my mother say it on a few occasions and no doubt she heard that phrase when she was a child. So why are we living in a ‘plastic world’? Studies have shown that a chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA), which is in most plastics, has been indicated to impair (damage) human hormones.
Some of the glands which release hormones are the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals and pancreas. So our hormones are vital for keeping our bodies in balance. They control our metabolism (a process needed to get the energy from the foods we eat) as well as controlling our growth and development, mood and male/female reproductive system. Of course, there is more to our hormone function then the short summary I’ve put together here.
You can see though how important it is to stay away from plastics which could pose a threat to your baby’s/child’s health. Scientists have also found that BPA can cause cancer, obesity, hyperactivity and diabetes. You do not need to be a ‘Rocket Scientist’ to know that man-made synthetic toxic chemicals mutate (change) our human DNA.
Give your baby the best start in life by reducing the amount of toxic chemicals which they are exposed to on a daily basis by introducing he/she to Glass Baby Bottles with Silicon Sleeves by Lifefactory. They can be purchased from Amazon.com.
You will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the glass bottle your baby is drinking from will not leach chemicals into the liquid which it holds.
Made from borosilicate glass, these glass baby bottles are shock resistant and can withstand heat. The sleeves are non-toxic, help your baby to grip and protect your baby’s bottle if they are at that stage of hurling (throwing). Included are two silicone nipples which are non-toxic and latex-free.
