2-Why work with AMS?
While almost all existing plastics today – as well as many cosmetics,
silicones, and paper products – release chemicals with estrogenic
activity (EA), AMS PRODUCTS (organic) Free from inorganic material.
Chemicals with EA have been associated with serious health
problems, especially with reproductive functions, growth and behavior
concerns, and certain cancers. AMS developed the exclusive patents
and is the first and only

3-What is estrogenic activity (EA)?
Chemicals with EA mimic or block the actions of naturally-occurring
estrogen in the human body when these chemicals are ingested
through food and beverages, medicine or cosmetics. Some research
has shown this EA-induced hormonal imbalance can cause serious
health issues. EA is found or suspected in several thousand
chemicals, including many food and beverage packaging materials.

4-What are endocrine disruptors?
Chemicals with EA are a large part of a group of chemicals known as
endocrine disruptors. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that mimic or
block the actions of the body’s natural hormones, like estrogens (the female
sex hormones) and androgens (the male sex hormones). The endocrine
system is one of the body’s main communication networks, and is
responsible for producing the hormones that help control reproduction,
growth and development, and behavioral responses. Endocrine disruptors
upset these natural processes.

5-What serious health issues can chemicals with EA cause?
Current research shows estrogenic activity (EA) can cause a broad spectrum
of serious health problems, such as:
altered growth rates
early puberty in girls
reduced sperm count in males
altered functions in reproductive organs in both sexes
altered behaviors
obesity
Higher rates of some cancers.

6-How can you be exposed to chemicals with EA?
Almost all existing plastics – as well as many body lotions, cosmetics,
silicones, and paper products, – release chemicals with EA. Plastics
produced with chemicals with EA are commonly used in water bottles,
baby bottles, food containers, bags, linings for metal food cans,
linings for wine and beer fermentation vats, bottle caps and closures,
toys, medical devices, dental materials, and many, many other plastic
products. Chemicals with EA leach from plastics into the items we
consume or use. Exposure can happen whenever chemicals with EA
are ingested into the body, typically through food and beverages,
medicine, or cosmetics.

7-What about BPA and phthalates?
Recently, two chemicals with estrogenic activity (EA) have gotten
significant public attention: Bisphenol-A (BPA) and phthalates.
BPA is used to manufacture polycarbonate (hard and clear) plastics,
which are often used in food and beverage containers and epoxy
resins, which are typically found in dental sealants.
Phthalates are a class of chemicals used to soften polyvinyl chloride
plastics and make them more flexible.
BPA and phthalates have been highly publicized for their EA, but
they’re only two of hundreds of chemicals with EA that are commonly
used to produce plastics. So while some companies are promoting
their efforts to eliminate BPA and phthalates from their products,
they’re leaving in or substituting other chemicals with dangerous
levels of EA. Eliminating BPA and phthalates doesn’t eliminate EA, so
BPA-free or phthalate-free products are not usually EA-free. In fact,
sometimes, the material substituted to make a product BPA-free or
phthalate-free shows even more estrogenic activity than the originals.

8-How did AMS develop its Gel Fiber?
AMS spent Money and time to develop the technology and patents to
produce its Gel Fiber. Through our research, we developed ways to
avoid these chemicals in our formulations and production methods. In
most cases, our processes and formulations can be used within a
manufacturer’s with few key modifications.

9-How much would it cost for the industry to transition to gel fiber?
Undoubtedly cost the $400 billion plastics industry at this time. But
the cost of gel fiber for production will be much less.
Make systematic changes now rather than piecemeal changes over
the coming decades.
We need investors and Manufacture for
Baby Gel fiber bottle (Organic
Bottle).

10-What does will be done to ensure gel fiber is safe?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defined tests for
carcinogenic, cell death, and toxic effects for chemicals that can
contaminate foodstuffs or other products,
Tests for hormonal effects. According to the FDA itself, more than
3,000 preservatives and additives are included in our nation’s food,
but none are required to undergo testing for estrogenic activity (EA),
nor are the containers that food and beverages are packaged in.
While the National Toxicology Program (NTP), National Institutes of
Health (NIH), and other organizations have found issues to date, the
FDA is still reconsidering its position with an update expected soon.
With legislation passed banning or limiting certain estrogenic
chemicals (e.g. BPA and phthalates), public health warnings beginning
to be issued, and more legislation pending, AMS believes that the
plastics industry should be ahead of the regulatory and legislative
curve and respond to the growing concerns about the health issues of
plastics. With the easy implementation of EA-Free materials and
products, why not make the safe choice and mitigate the growing
liability of producing estrogenic products?

11-Where do I find Gel Fiber -bottled
products?

With many channel and retail products
shortly to be introduced to the public,
distribution of Gel Fiber certified
products will be widely available soon.
