BPA and BPA-free toxins as autoimmune triggers
While many autoimmune patients use an anti-inflammatory diet to manage their autoimmunity, you should know BPA and BPA-free chemicals have been shown to trigger autoimmunity.
In fact, I have co-authored research showing a connection between BPA and multiple sclerosis, and other studies have referenced my research to show a link between BPA and thyroid autoimmunity.
Bisphenol-A (BPA) is used in many common products such as plastics, plastic bottles, can liners, plastic coffee lids, and store receipts….BPA is absorbed into the bloodstream in just seconds of handling a store receipt.
While BPA has been linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity infertility, brain, nervous system and cardiovascular abnormalities, and other health issues, newer research shows it’s also linked to autoimmunity.
Manufacturers are replacing BPA with bisphenol S (BPS) and other “BPA-free” chemicals, but research shows these chemicals are equally risky.
The CDC reports detectable levels of BPA in 93% of subjects. If you have autoimmunity, you need to take your daily BPA exposure seriously.
In this talk and Q&A learn about the impacts of BPA and BPA-free chemicals on autoimmunity and chronic health conditions. (Zoom Webinar 05-06-2021)
