I like this Butterworth. I have written too often about BPA–I think politicians should be reminded that pretending to save people is the charlatan’s pose.
Endocrine disruption is the supposed toxic effect. That’s nonsense, but it scares the beejesus out of mommies who are worried about their effeminate sons.
Studies by safety agencies in the US and Europe show no toxic effects from BPA, which is used to make plastic soft and pliable and more usable and doesn’t deserve this persecution–it’s great stuff–important for medical things, like IV lines and plastic items of all kinds.
Thanks ACSH, nice to have someone helping on exposing junky science. and panicky policy makers.
