contact lenses and bpa, how safe are they?

Probably not, but...: There is not enough scientific evidence to make a conclusion regarding the safe limits of bpa ingestion during pregnancy. Several nations around the world have placed bpa on lists of toxins that we should avoid and the U.S. Is now catching up! in general, if you don't have to use bpa products, don't. Also, i don't recommend heating foods in plastic or foam containers.
