can never be too careful with your babies and a new study only proves this
right. It has been found that chemicals commonly found in plastics and
fungicides may be weakening childrenís teeth by disrupting hormones that
stimulate the growth of dental enamel. For the study, the researchers examined
the effects of two endocrine disruptors -- chemicals that interfere with
mammalian hormones. Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the most prevalent, found in
every-day items including refillable drink bottles and food storage containers.
Vinclozolin is another endocrine disruptor that was commonly used as a
fungicide in vineyards, golf courses and orchards.
