  • strategies to reduce BPA in diet

    From Consumer Reports:

    BPA alternatives may not be safer:
    One problem the food industry faces is developing safe alternatives to BPA. Dr. Megan Schwarzman, a family physician and research scientist at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, told L.A. Weekly this morning in an email: "There is a broader issue at play here as well that I think it's critical to bring into the conversation. While many manufacturers have switched out of BPA (and market 'BPA-free' products), the substitutes are often close chemical relatives such as BPS (Bisphenol S) or BPF (Bisphenol F). And there's little reason to suspect these compounds are any safer than BPA."
