Diabetes 2 possibly caused by Bisphenol A.
Arlette85 posted:
For several days, the tip of my tongue has felt burned and the mucus lining in my mouth has felt weird, almost puffy like cotton. I read type 2 diabetes may cause this burning mouth syndrome. It can also be caused by Bisphenol A (BPA). BPA also may cause diabetes. I may have greatly increased the amount of BPA in my body from drinking warm/hot water from plastic water bottles for months. If I have given myself diabetes 2, can I reverse the health damage caused by BPA exposure if I stop drinking from plastic bottles?
