UltimateMama wants you all to know that the FDA recently provided an update on the issue of BPA (Bisphenol A).  Remember, this chemical is found in hard plastic bottles and metal food and beverage cans.  It seems as though the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health and FDA are concerned about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and young children. 

UltimateMama encourages you to reduce your family's exposure to BPA.  Do it for your CHILDREN!

UltimateMama wants to make you aware of the 3rd Annual Consumer Guide to Toxic Chemicals in Toys study by the Michigan-based Ecology Center and partners.  Before heading out to do holiday shopping for your children check out! These researchers worked hard to test various toys and children's products for such things as lead, cadmium,
arsenic, PVC, and harmful chemicals. Do you and your family a favor and read their research!
