Bisphenol A：Bisphenol A，also called BPA，used to manufacture polycarbonate (PC) and epoxy resins etc. in industry. Since the 1960s BPA was used to manufacture plastic (nursing) bottle, children suction cup, inner coating of food and beverage (milk) container. BPA can be found everywhere from water bottles, medical devices to the lining of foodstuffs packaging.
BPA can cause great harm to children, especially to infants. BPA can be easily released when the child-care article, such as nursing bottle, is in heating or high temperature conditions. So there are more and more regulations about BPA, especially regulations about children’s products, such as EU, various states in US, Australia, Canada, China etc.
