BPA in Children’s Fillings!

BPA in Children’s Fillings!

For many years, scientists have known that BPA exposure is potentially dangerous and we’re educated to be sure it’s out of the plastics we use. Yet,  a type of tooth filling has been developed for use in children that contains BPA.

So they’ve taken BPA bottles out of kids’ mouths, and then EMBEDDED BPA in their teeth!

In a new 5 year study, children with BPA fillings were more likely to have emotional issues, including depression and anxiety. And this was just a five-year study. Many kids will have these fillings their entire lives! Just when we got the word out on Mercury, now this!
Add to that, the use of BPA fillings is growing because they’re “tooth colored.”

You can avoid BPA fillings by asking your child’s dentist about another type of filling. It’s called a “componer.” The new BPA study also included children with componer fillings. The researchers found no links between componers and behavioral problems.

Do share these important findings with everyone you know. It’s a blessing to be able to help one another.

Until next time…stay healthy, think peace, be love and see love in everyone!
