Day 78- Nutrition Bite

Maryland's Howard County Health Department has banned the use of certain plastics in food containers going to WIC participants. Health warnings have recently sounded against plastics containing the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA), which can leach out of containers when heated or washed. Howard County may be the first in Maryland to enact a BPH-free WIC policy.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
I read that frozen water bottles can also leach out chemicals. These leached chemicals are probably more dangerous than white sugar. Unprocessed foods are your safest bet, because you don't have to worry about the leaching of BPA.
