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!
