Last year Canada declared this product toxic. It is time we do the same in the United Sates.

Last week during their meetings in Washington DC, the Endocrine Society indicated that there is strong evidence that chemicals that interfere with the hormone system can cause serious health issues.

Bisphenol A or BPA is a hormone disrupting chemical. On May 16th this author posted again on this subject because it concerns me greatly. The post is titled “Do retail industry procurement professionals really know which products they buy contain BPA”

According to Robert Carey, President t of the Endocrine Society they decided to release their statement because these chemicals affect everyone. The report also indicated that 93% of Americans tested have been exposed to BPA.

This author continues to recommend that when buying any of the products listed above that procurement professionals ask their suppliers the specific question; do these products or the containers for these products contain BPA? If so, do you have the same product for the same price in containers that do not contain BPA?

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
