Since earlier this week Health Canada officially labeled bisphenol-A as a dangerous chemical, I was wondering what some of your thoughts are on this topic and perhaps plastics in general.
I know the BPA debate has been going on for quite some time now and it is good I think that finally a large country has stepped up and brought attention to what could be a dangerous product to a lot of people's health, especially babies.
And yes of course the plastic companies were quick to jump all over this saying you'd have to consume something like 600kg of it in some amount of time to make a difference....but we know where they are coming from. With out bodies sometimes tiny amounts of something result in big changes and negative outcomes and when it comes to hormones and hormone disruptors - that is definitely true.
You can read one article here on this news from the Globe and Mail - however I am sure the internet is crawling with articles on this now.
