Some chemicals are just not supposed to be in our bodies. If the U.S can be a world leader and ban BPA, hopefully other countries will follow suit.
[...] You can avoid bpa by using stainless steel and glass instead of plastic and avoiding food in metal cans which may be lined with BPA, but it’s in so many things that totally avoiding it is hard. Also if something is showing up as causing so many problems should anyone be eating it? No! That is why we must tell the FDA to ban BPA. “Over three years ago, the Natural Resources Defense Council filed a petition with the FDA asking them to ban the use of bisphenol A (BPA) as an additive. After many months of waiting, a decision date has been declared. March 31, 2012 is the last possible day that the FDA has to make a permanent decision about the usage of BPA in consumer products. The FDA has expressed concerned, scientists have expressed concern, organizations have expressed concerned, and relentless public mandate has created a serious shift in its usage within products. Not surprisingly, plastic industry lobbyists, and those benefit financially from the continued use of BPA, doubt its harm. In 2011, Maine Governer Paul LePage went so far as to claim that there “hasn’t been any science” that identified BPA as a problem, but then made the claim that there was, in fact, some talk of BPA acting as an estrogen mimic that he’d heard about, but in a worst case scenario “women may have little beards” as a result of exposure. People like this are aggressively lobbying to keep this additive alive and they will be pushing hard on the FDA.”- Plastic Pollution Coalition [...]
[...] Done? OK, back in action, team! It’s time to Ban BPA! [...]
