Source: Live Mint, Date: June , 2016

A study says harmful chemical ‘bisphenol-A’ in baby sippy cups can impact mental and physical health of children .

The study released by Toxics Link said that as a precaution many countries have already phased out the use of bisphenol-A in sippy cups.

Sippy cups for babies are unregulated and around 77% of the samples tested in Delhi contain bisphenol-A (BPA), a harmful chemical that can impact mental and physical health of children, said a study released by Toxics Link on Wednesday.

For their study, ‘Beware of Toxic Sippy Cups: An Investigative Study On Bisphenol-A In Sippy Cups in India’, Toxics Link randomly collected 13 samples of sippy cups of various brands from different markets of Delhi and got them tested at the Shriram Institute for Industrial Research (SIIR).
