We applaud the California legislature for passing a ban on BPA, an artificial estrogen in plastic baby bottles. We only wish it were a ban from ALL plastic bottles sold.
We don’t need our BABIES or KIDS or ADULTS drinking water from plastic bottles in which BPA has leeched into the water. This especially happens when the bottles are heated, as in microwave warming, sitting in hot cars while we shop, etc.
10 states and the EU have already banned it. Hurray! All that remains is for Governor Brown to sign the bill.
We received the information from the Consumer’s Union, an nonprofit organization that looks out for the health and well being of consumers. What a concept!
Here’s a link to the CU page describing the issue and the vote of the California legislature.
We are not kidding, folks, about how dangerous the contamination of our food and drink has become. Please support this ban in your state!
