BPA resin replacements may be more harmful

“Ironically, earlier this year, researchers pointed out that the chemical used to replace BPA for plastic baby bottles and reusable water bottles, known as Bisphenol S (BPS), is actually a more potent “endocrine disrupter” and that the human body does not metabolize BPS as easily!”

  1. Nice. The law of unintended consequences at work again.

  2. Looks like the lobbyists and PR flacks with the BPA people are not as good as the lobbyists and PR flacks with the BPS people.

  3. Rule of thumb, Sulfur is almost universally worse for you than oxygen in pretty much any form that it’s in.

    BR, the problem was very clearly outlined. BPS is not safer in any way than BPA. There was simply less research on it, so there was less rope to hang BPS with. When all these imbeciles started demanding BPA-free everything, BPS was turned to as a substitute with explicit warnings given by everyone involved that BPS was not safer and was less studied. These warnings were ignored.

  4. BPS more harmful: that’s the point.

  5. So BPS may be more harmful than BPA, which is not at all harmful. I’m not sure ironic is the word I would use.
