Seven years ago, in my book HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY released on July 5, 2013, I exposed the dangers of Bisphenol A (BPA) and other by-products of plastics.

On August 18, 2020, cnn.com published an article entitled High BPA levels linked to 49% greater risk of death within 10 years, study says.

In the article, writer Sandee LaMotte lists some of the exact same toxic items involving BPA that I had exposed as hazardous.
When the mainstream media publishes contents that issue justifiable warnings, it usually gets people’s attention. The BPA article’s warning raises awareness on the multiple items that are widely used on a daily basis but are hazardous to humans, animals, and the environment. 
In HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY, I have taken the matter of BPA toxicity beyond a warning and presented concrete and simple solutions to the problem. The book shows the reader every known actionable step that leads to getting BPA toxicity under control.

What is BPA?

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a synthetic compound that enters into the manufacture of plastic products. It is found in virtually all plastic items, hygiene, surgical, and medical products, water bottles, food packagings, and much more. Scientific studies on BPA have revealed its implication in countless symptoms of illness. 
Bisphenol A is considered to be a major endocrine disruptor that has been responsible for excessive and probably irreversible weight gain, obesity, erectile dysfunction, shrinking male organs, birth defects, behavioral disorders, diabetes, cancer, and multiple other serious issues including premature death.
The BPA problem particularly affects people who routinely microwave their food in plastic containers, frequently consume canned foods and fast foods, drink bottled water, and use toxic grooming products.
Essentially, the way to protect the self, loved ones, and the Planet from BPA damage is through a keen understanding of causes and effects, as I have clearly emphasized in my publications.

What are the main items that contain BPA?

As a rule of thumb, just about every item made of plastic carries BPA. If we follow writer LaMotte’s lead in her cnn.com article, just a few of the main items containing BPA happen to be:
  1. BOTTLED WATER (also listed in HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY on p. 29, p. 37, p. 40, p. 54, p. 73, p. 75, p. 96).
  2. CANNED FOOD CONTAINERS (also listed in HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY on p. 54 and p. 77).   
  4. BABY ITEMS (also listed in HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY on p. 34). The said baby items include baby bottles, seepy cups, teething rings, pacifiers, infant formula containers, rubber duckies, etc.
Just like it is for bottled water, one of the most die-hard habits that people have adopted and are rarely willing to give up is the use of known BPA carriers such as plastic cooking utensils e.g. plastic spoons and spatulas.
Science has not yet proven whether food-grade plastics are totally BPA-free.
To understand how to minimize risks of BPA toxicity and systemic poisoning, one must simply know what items release BPA and how to use safer alternatives.

Alternatives to BPA

In HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY, I encourage the reader to eliminate items with high BPA levels such as: plastic cooking spoons and spatulas, Teflon, non-stick pans, plastic water bottles, clothing and shoes made of synthetic materials, etc. I also show the reader how to replace their toxic wares and gears with much healthier alternatives.
For BPA alternatives:
1. Stop using the items known to be BPA carriers.
2. Use natural wares made of glass, ceramic, terra cotta, wood, bamboo, stainless steel, cast iron, etc., instead of plastics.
3. Avoid microwaving your food items: the plastic containers release substantial amounts of BPA into your meal.
Besides BPA toxicity, one of the biggest issues with microwaving is that the process alters the molecular structure of food. This occurrence has also been found to conflict with metabolism and may cause irreversible DNA damage.
The natural materials mentioned above have been safely used on Earth for millennia.

How do you clear your system from BPA?

This is where HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY takes the matter to the therapeutic level.
In my book, I show a large number of different processes that anyone can use to detoxify the body from BPA-based toxins. Some of the essential processes are:
1. Do a conscientious full body detox (see HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY p. 100).
2. Drink purified water (see HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY p. 102).
3. Take detoxifying medicines such as Bentonite clay water, activated charcoal, chlorophyll, lemon drinks, etc. (see HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY p. 101).
4. Use a sauna. This activity helps transport toxins out of the body through the sweat glands. (see HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY p. 101).
It is essential to take a transactional approach to the management of BPA toxins accumulated in the body. What got in and is known to be harmful must be escorted out. Once the toxic load is established in the bodily tissues, some undesirable consequences may come into effect. Even if someone curbs the use of items that introduce high levels of BPA into the body, there are probabilities that the existing load will be active for another 20 years. The evident solution to toxicity is to neutralize and excrete the toxic load by all means necessary. This is usually performed through a full body detox. 
People who have done a full body detox to eliminate excess BPA have also experienced an additional beneficial effect: the quick and easy elimination of unwanted body fat.
In my books GET SLIM EFFORTLESSLY and HOW TO DETOXIFY YOUR LIFE NATURALLY, I reveal a do-it-yourself full detoxification process.
