Health: New BPA Warning

Published:

This has been going on for a loooooong time. It is finally getting some press. For those of you that don't know it, it is more than of "some concern" like they say. They've been killing us, and altering our body chemistry with this crap for awhile. Scary!!!  The FDA is nuts! Even if they have proof something is harmful, they lie and say it's not, or there's no proof. TRUST ME, I know this firsthand about the FDA! I have attached an informational video, PLEASE watch it!!!

 

Health: New BPA Warning

Jan 18, 2010 4:18 pm US/Eastern

PHILADELPHIA (CBS 3) - Federal health officials have new concerns about the safety of a chemical found in some plastic bottles, containers and thousands of household products.

The FDA has shifted its position on Bisphenol A, also known as BPA, saying it is of "some concern" and is encouraging families to limit their children's exposure.

Many plastic products, from baby bottles to cans containing food or soda, contain a hardening agent known as BPA that can seep in to what you eat or drink.

Now the FDA says based on new studies, while still considered safe, it now has some concern about the "potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland in fetuses, infants and young children."

The American Chemistry Council says BPA is safe.

"What's important to remember is the FDA indicated that the BPA has not been proven harmful to children or adults. And that if they believed it was unsafe, they would've issued stronger regulations," said Lisa Harrison, with the American Chemistry Council.

Experts say most hard plastic probably contains some BPA. There's often no way to tell for sure. 

Sometimes you'll see the number seven in the recycling logo, which means it is more likely to contain the chemical. You can buy plastic that says BPA free on the packaging.

For years many environmental groups and some scientists have warned BPA is unsafe and can lead to cancers, diabetes, and other diseases.

"I and other colleagues of mine at an NIH meeting said, with a very high level of confidence, we think Bisphenol a threat to human health," said Fred Vom Saal, a Researcher with the University of Missouri.

Researchers say there is no agreement on what constitutes a dangerous level of BPA. If you are concerned about exposure to BPA, consider using glass containers as an alternative.

Good story Lady, I heard something about this a few months ago and agree we can't trust the so-called experts. It's like the drugs they market like crazy on TV and a couple years later the lawyers are on TV wanting you to sign up to sue the manufacturers for all the deaths and debilitating sickness they caused.

When there's money to be made the public health seems to come in a distant second to profits. I don't trust any of 'em anymore (experts).

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ! THE first thing i am in life is a wife and mom i had my husband watch this with me, my first priority is their well being. i'm a firm believer that there are way to many chemicals out there. also the microwave ovens can destroy nutrients in vegetables.

You're welcome!
Yes, Sully, I know what you mean. I am a nut, when it comes to finding out the chemicals that are in everything. They say if there's anything on the label that you can't pronounce or don't know what it is, it's probably not good for you.

I wish my kids would eat more fresh vegetables. The healthiest thing to do if you don't eat them raw, is steam them, boil them, or bake them. Microwaves are quick, but "zapping" everything, kills it. If I could just get a bigger property, I could have a huge garden, or a farm, but I've had to make do with the space that I have. I prefer to know what's in the food I eat, if I can help it. I plant mostly heirloom seeds and plants, and I have a vegetable dehydrator and a vacume sealer, and I store what I can, that way, but I can't plant nearly enough to sustain us for the winter. I still have canned food, but I try and severely limit what I use of it, since I found out about all of this.

MSG is bad for you, too. It's in a lot of processed foods. Years ago, I heard about how bad it was, and started noticing things in the grocery store that said, "MSG Free", and being a bit too trusting at the time, I believed that they had banned it. Fast forward a few years, I was still seeing it on labels, and I thought to myself, "Why are they still labeling things MSG Free, when it was banned so long ago?", so I started looking it up on the internet to find that, they still put it in a ton of food! I couldn't believe it!!! In some things, it's disguised under other names, but that stuff is BAD! I will have to do a post on that in the next few days. I know I have some good info on it, just have to find it. It has done horrible things to people, yet the FDA says it's safe.
