Are Plastic Cups Safe for Drinking?

There is some scientific evidence that some chemicals in plastic can be harmful to people, particularly BPA and phthalates. Research has shown that bisphenol A (BPA) can disrupt hormone and reproductive system function in animals and there has been some concern about its effects on the brain, behavior and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and children. Some studies have shown that phthalates can disrupt the endocrine system and can lead to malformations in the male reproductive system in animals

There is still much debate over whether phthalates and BPA can cause health problems in humans, and if there is a connection, how much exposure is necessary to cause these issues. While all of the information is being figured out, experts recommend caution, so here are some tips for reducing your exposure to harmful chemicals in plastics:

1.    Know the number - Check the bottom of the cup or plastic item to find the recycling symbol, which is a number between 1 and 7 in the middle of a triangle of arrows. These numbers are used to indicate the type of plastic used and can provide important information about safety. Numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5 are considered safe numbers, while it is best to avoid numbers 3, 6 and 7. Plastics with 3 or 6 can leach chemicals that are harmful while number 7 includes plastics that contain BPA
2.    Avoid the microwave – Heat can cause harmful chemicals to leach from plastic at a quicker rate. Even plastics that are labeled microwave safe can leach small amounts. Although the FDA has determined that the small amounts are not harmful, if you are concerned at all, it’s best not to put your plastic cup or other plastic item in the microwave.
3.    Use it for its intended purpose – Disposable plastics are intended for single use and should be used only once. Many plastics with number 1, like disposable water bottles, should be used only once. Plastics can break down over time and are not designed to stand up to heating and cooling.
4.    Hand wash – The only plastics that should go into a dishwasher are those marked “dishwasher safe.” When some plastics are exposed to the heat of the water and drying element in the dishwasher it can cause them to leach chemicals. If you are still wary of washing those marked “dishwasher safe”, just wash it by hand or use glass or ceramic cups and plates.
5.    Do not freeze – Just like with dishwashers and microwaves, only put plastics marked “freezer safe” in the freezer. Extreme cold temperatures can cause plastic to deteriorate and leach chemicals into food when you remove the containers from the freezer.
6.    Don’t panic – While it’s a good idea to limit your exposure to harmful chemicals in plastics, other things in your life like smoking and poor diet pose a much higher risk.
