Plastics and BPA

Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical used in the lining of canned foods and in plastic products (like water bottles) has been declared safe by dozens of studies in the United States and Europe. Yet junk scientists continue to scare parents with claims that BPA is associated with heightened risk for several diseases—using statistics that are dubious at best. These scare tactics do nothing more than coerce consumers to waste money on more expensive, less effective, products.
