Plastic Bottle Battle in India

Plastic is good for containers of all kinds, including medication containers.

There is no evidence to support pushing glass in favor of plastic on the justification of the endocrine disrupter panicmongering.

Why is it that junk science travels so much faster than good science adn always lands on some ambitious politician’s desk?

And to top it off this is in India where they worry about plastic and still need to create safe sewer systems?

  1. We have gone to glass in our kitchen. but the thing is I am not pushing it on anyone in the blogosphere or elsewhere.

    It does not bust our budget like green energy laws or CFC light bulbs. It is a known safe product (glass) unlike miniature, plastic cars or CFC light bulbs.

    CFC light bulbs that have been foisted upon the public at the point for a gun (force of law) by the industrial-political establishment (GE/Immelt*& the Green lobby) are a real pain. I decided to buy LEDs instead of CFC. they have come down in price although they are still expensive. There cost leads to fights over buying them instead of the alternative. As if i do not already have enough fights in the household. Yes I blame the Greens for it.

    The Greens are basically writing a new Deuteronomy over what is kosher and what is not. I resent it. Very often they are wrong. Not only that many of them do not have technical degrees but rely on a few experts on their side.

    Anyway using the precaution principle We use glass. I have a number of mathematics and physics courses but only 2 courses in chemistry and they are not P-chem or organic.

    Will the endocrine disrupter theory be shown as fraud as the AGW theory will be in the next 20 years?

    • Don’t you pay any attention? There is no endocrine disruptor theory. Just punch up endocrine disruptors on the Junk Science search thing.

      These clown did such bad research that the original endocrine disruptor claims and subsequent claims have been disproven by multiple reviews here and in Europe.

      I really don’t care if you use glass, but don’t ignore what Junk Science tries to show you. decades of use of bpa and other alleged endocrine disruptors show nothing.

      Why did you get on such a goofy kick? Your opposition to the light bulb ban shows you are not brain dead.

  2. Not all glass is safe. Leaded glass containers are not safe. I would guess just from recent history that many chinese glass products may be tainted with various heavy metals and other toxins.

    • Do you really think that leaded glass is unsafe? Really, or do you just know lead is toxic and glass has lead in it.

      Dose, dose, exposure, exposure. And the precautionary principle is the rule of thumb for empty headed scaredy cats.

  3. I don’t have leaded glass or least that I know. It all depends on how good the labels are.

    I am sure I have seen stuff on BPAs in the last 2 or 3 years. Not saying that I believe it, but it is still floating out there waiting for resurrection.

    • As I have pointed out and Milloy has documented, endocrine disruption is a junk science concept and the studies on BPA and pthalates, that have been around for a long time, show no toxicity and certainly no silly endocrine disruption. Look at endocrine disruption on the search box at the home page.
