    Bisphenol A is an organic compound used in polycarbonate plastics. Polycarbonate plastics are the durable and transparent plastics used to contain so much of our food and drinks. Bisphenol A is created by the condensation of acetone, hence, the suffix A in the name. Further, it has two large phenol groups that are weakly acidic and that is the chemistry behind the name (2).
    BPA imitates estrogen, a fact that has been clearly understood since the mid 1930’s (8). A chemist by the name Frederick vom Saal reveals high levels of estrogen in the body increases the body's sugar production, which can lead to diabetes and heart disease (6). But it doesn’t end there. This is just one example better explained. Several other harmful effects have been linked to BPA but lack hard proof, so the FDA refuses to recognize it (9).

    The Dispute
    Canada has deemed BPA a toxic substance (5). Europe has recently banned it in the making of baby bottles (4). Japan has replaced the chemical with a modern film-liner to avoid contamination (9). BPA has been the center of controversy here in the U.S too, but no great things have come from it yet. California Senator, Dianne Feinstein, is a leader in the efforts to ban BPA in the U.S. This is what she has to say, “The evidence against BPA is mounting, especially its harmful effects on babies and children who are still developing. I very much regret that the chemical industry puts a higher priority on selling chemicals than on the health of infants. I will not cease in my efforts to remove BPA from products where it can harm human health, and I urge consumers to vote with their pocketbooks by refusing to purchase products that contain BPA.”

    What to do?
    With your newly acquired knowledge, STEER CLEAR of this crippling chemical. With over 80,000 chemicals being used still in limbo about how safe they are to ingest, you might not want to take the governments word for it. Another gamble is how much of this chemical are you actually ingesting? There is no way to tell. After all, the FDA approved BPA in the early 1960’s, just about the time Swanson predicted TV dinners would become all the rage.
