BPA-Free Dental Bonding – Eco-Win?
I wrote a post a few days back about my big eco-fail, getting a mouth full of endocrine disrupting (and most likely breast cancer causing) bisphenol A (BPA) in some dental bonding work done. Eureka! I found a BPA-free brand of bonding material, so my dentist has aquired some and is going to redo the work. Good thing because women in menopause are more susceptible. Eco-Win? Oops. My dentist bought some for me and it had BPA sealed in with urethane. Eeek. We decided not to go for that. Substituting one problem for another it seemed to us. Eco-Fail.
