BPA Added To California’s Toxic Chemicals List Making BPA-Free Dental Products from PureLife More Attractive
Date:4/18/2013

Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

The State of California has added Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical found in many dental composites and sealants, to its list of chemicals known to cause birth defects, according to the Los AngelesTimes. The chemical is also found in many common consumer products such as water bottles, soup can linings and store receipts.

For dentists, the addition of BPA to California’s “Prop 65 List” (named after the “right to know” proposition that California voters approved in 1986) may mean that warning signs must be posted to alert patients to their potential exposure to the toxic chemical.

Fortunately, dental dealer PureLife offers BPA-free alternatives to dentists, including the Venus Diamond and the Venus Pearl composites, and the Embrace line of sealants and cements. In addition to being BPA-free, these products offer superior performance to many of their counterparts. For example, the Embrace Wetbond Pit & Fissure Sealant does not require a dry field so it’s an especially good solution for pediatric patients – exactly the audience that can be most adversely affected by exposure to BPA.

Studies have linked BPA to a range of problems, including birth defects and behavioral changes in children. A new study released just last month by the Center for Children's Environmental Health at Columbia University has also linked the chemical to increased rates of asthma in children. Nationwide, BPA has already been banned from children’s products such as baby bottles and sippy cups.

Providing a growing Green Collection of products with choices that are better for human and environmental health, like BPA-free products, is just one way PureLife makes a difference in the dental industry. From educational efforts like the animated short, The Story of Mercury, to the funding of university studies on “green” product effectiveness, PureLife is leading the industry towards better health.
