Pregnant women have been urged to avoid food and drinks heated up in plastic containers after a study found certain chemicals can increase the risk of miscarriage by 80%
Between 15 and 20 % of pregnancies end in miscarriage. While the risk increases with age, scientists have struggled to identify other causal factors. Research on animals has previously suggested that the chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) could threaten foetal survival but until now there have been limited studies on humans. BPA has previously been found to carry small risks to child development, and has been banned in baby bottles by the EU.
New findings from Stanford University suggest that high levels of contact with the chemical found in many plastics could dramatically increase the likelihood of miscarriage. The scientists behind the study advise pregnant women to avoid canned foods, microwaved food and plastic water bottles left out in the sun because they increase the risk of miscarriage by 80%. "Avoid anything that involves cooking or warming food in plastic as the chemicals leak out of plastic materials at a higher rate at higher temperatures." Also avoid unnecessary cash register receipts as they are coded with resin containing BPA. The same advice was issued to men whose partners are trying to conceive, after separate research found that the presence of similar chemicals found in the same plastics appeared to reduce male fertility by 20%.
Another study presented in Boston found that high levels of phthalates, also produced during the manufacturing of plastic and also found in many skin-care products, significantly reduced the chances of conception.

Comments from Amanprana:
All plastic contains substances leaking into food or drinks, also the plastic that has supposedly been approved for food. The migration increases in warm and oily products. Amanprana tries to avoid all plastic and chooses resolutely for glass.
