Endocrine Disruptors and why the toxic Chemical BPA has not been banned by the FDA yet

When the FDA rejects the precautionary principle…

Why the FDA Hasn't Banned Potentially Toxic BPA (Yet)For most public-health advocates, chemicals like BPA should be guilty until proved innocent — and they feel there’s more than enough data out there to cast doubt on BPA’s innocence. That’s led to frustration with the slow pace of the FDA, which only two years ago expressed some concern over the health risks posed by BPA. It makes me uncomfortable to think that while the research and regulatory process drags on (for how many more years) consumers are continuing to be exposed, wrote NRDC senior scientist Gina Solomon after the FDA ruling. Let’s hope the FDA remembers their responsibility to public health and takes action soon. ”

BPS Highly Toxic Bisphenol S found in Thousands of Consumer Products to advertise them as BPA-Free

Manufacturers Replace BPA with Still Highly Toxic BPS

Manufacturers Replace BPA with Still Highly Toxic BPS” … BPS is actually not only within the same range of toxicity of BPA, but is slower to degrade, and therefore will be more likely to remain a persistent toxin and environmental pollutant.

Diethylstilbestrol major Cause of TransGender?

Survey: “Has this Drug changed your Life?”

Read Has This Drug Changed Your Life? (Survey)
Chameleons WA Discussion Forum

” … Should the drug DES be recognized as a major cause of transgender and should the public be educated with regard to this, then perhaps over time there may be a change towards those who are transgendered. I am sure that we, as transgendered, would still be open to a lot of prejudice but perhaps not to the extent that we are because we are thought of ‘as just men who want to wear women’s clothes’.

BPA and Plastics: why don’t our Regulations protect all of us from their massive Exposures?

Regulate BPA out the Door !

Read Regulate BPA out the DoorBisphenol-A, or BPA, just can’t stay out of the headlines these days…  … This chemical with documented estrogenic properties is manufactured at global volume of six billion pounds a year. It’s introduced into the food and water supply of the planet, and is found in the bodies of almost everyone. Exposure to this chemical is linked to asthma and other health problems.
