As we enter the sauna season in full, I wanted to share some scientific evidence with you. But first, do you know what BPA is? Bisphenol A is a compound found in a lot of plastics, like the plastic used to line most metal food cans. It also happens to be a synthetic hormone and thus an endocrine disruptor (woops).
Based on a study I found in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, it seems that “induced sweating appears to be a potential method for elimination of BPA”. They are not using a large group of people for these tests, but the results are still encouraging.
So, to all those with a heavy body burden (and that is most of us), we wish you the best of sweats this winter! Happy new year from the DS Institute.
