Congress considering bill to ban BPA from food packaging
Legislation has been introduced by Democrats in both chambers of Congress to ban Bisephenol-A (BPA) from food packaging. BPA creates what is known as EA or estrogenic activity in the body, which occurs when chemicals mimic the behavior of naturally occurring estrogen. Studies have shown that fetal, infant, and juvenile mammals have been shown to be especially sensitive to the low doses of these reactive chemicals, which have been linked to an increased risk of breast and prostate cancer, fetal development problems, heart disease, diabetes, and infertility.
