Protect our Babies – Ban BPA Bottles!

BPA (bisphenol A) affects the hormonal development of babies and is associated with a host of serious health problems including obesity, premature puberty, erectile dysfunction and various kinds of cancer.

With safe alternative bottles available - such as those approved by the Cancer Association of South Africa - the use of BPA in baby products should be prohibited immediately to protect the future health of our children, as it has been in countries like Canada, France, Denmark, China and Malaysia.

Please Dr Motsoaledi, do not let any attempts by retailers or manufacturers sway you from protecting our babies!

      Great news: our Honourable Minister of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi has made South Africa a safer place for babies by banning the use of BPA in baby bottles!

      Congratulations Dr Motsoaledi on taking this bold and decisive step against the insidious dangers of this hormone-disrupting chemical.

      As of Friday 28 October 2011, it became illegal to import, export, distribute or sell any baby bottle that contains BPA in the Republic of South Africa.

      Thank you to all you who registered your concern by signing our petition.

      You too have contributed to bringing a BPA-free future a little closer for all of us. Well done!
