Most parents know to look out for the ‘BPA-free’ label when buying bottles, utensils and dinnerware for their kids.
But sometimes, plastic items that are BPA-free can still contain other harmful chemicals like phthalates and vinvl or PVC which have been linked to ailments ranging from allergies and asthma to endocrine disruption, developmental issues and cancer.
