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.

These scare tactics do nothing more than coerce consumers to waste money on more expensive, less effective, products.
