Dutch report shows millions of syringes are leaking BPA and BADGE

BPA is not the only bad endocrine disruptor, there are many more. Just because a plastic is BPA free does not mean it's free of EDCs (endocrine disrupting chemicals). Buying BPA free plastic products means you are substituting a known poison for an unknown poison. A Dutch report shows syringes (for shots) are leaking BPA and BADGE (bisphenol A diglycidyl ether).

The report says 1 in 5 syringes may be leaking epoxy resin, which then leaks BPA or BADGE. Since BPA and other EDCs are common in almost all plastics in the medical world, many other medical devices are likely to leak at least some EDCs.
