BPA Bisphenol-A

Let healthy and environmentally friendly consumption be your lifestyle.

Food storage, freezing and heating in usual plastic tableware containing BPA is not safe as in the course of heating some chemical compounds are emitted from plastic. Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the most common chemicals in household (industrial process by-product) which can be found in plastic boxes intended for food storage, plastic bottles and cans.

This non-natural chemical (BPA) acting like estrogen imitates the function of estradiol produced in the body, intervening in normal hormonal processes in human body.

Damage caused by this harm is mostly permanent. In full age harmful influence of BPA can be reduced by removal of this chemical from the consumpted food. Already two years ago it became known that animal testing has proven that the substance is related to breast and prostate cancer, early puberty, hormonal disbalance, changes in the brain structure, heart diseases and diabetes. Though quantities are very little, it still makes the concentration of estrogen in human body above normal.

Canada became the first country in the world which declared bisphenol A (BPA) as toxic substance which causes risk for human health and environment. All Lock & Lock products are BPA-free.
