    The government defines this as: “Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical produced in large quantities for use primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins”. It used to make CDs, DVDS, baby bottles, electrical equipment, cars and a variety of other products that use polycarbonate plastic. For epoxy resins, it is often used as a protective coating – especially for canned food products. However, It is rated as “some concern”, or a three,  on a five-level scale by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) for a variety of reasons that include possible effects on the human brain. It is legal to use in the US despite concerns, however, Canada has officially banned the use of Bisphenol A.
