Not sure why the other one got sent to the trash....heres v2.0 with some added facts and info. If you've got a problem with this thread please at least reply explaining what that problem is before trashing it.
Bisphenol A has been around since the late 1800s. It was first used commercially in the early 1900's, used a synthetic hormone to mimic estrogen.
Fast forward 20-30 years, BPA was used in plastic for the first time. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claimed Bisphenol A was perfectly safe.
The government began a program in the 70's to regulate industrial chemicals, but refused to consider BPA as harmful despite many studies showing the EPA's reasearch was plainly wrong. To silence opposition to the chemical, the gov't funded a study which showed BPA to be safe in low doses, contradicting all other research on the matter. More and more studies came out, and the gov't/EPA refused to even consider BPA was dangerous. By the 80's. the amount of BPA people were exposed to reached its highest levels.
By the late 90's it was shown that around 80-90% of baby formula stored was contaminated with BPA.
Again, the gov't tried to dispell scientific fact by orchestrating another study. They hired consultants, the only thing is their fulltime job was WORKING FOR COMPANIES THAT PRODUCE BPA.
They did this on purpose of course, how could they not have known? Nothing like a little bias to control the outcome of a study. Despite being exposed for this farce, the gov't stuck by its biased study, claiming it was fact. Between then and now, the study has been shown to contain over 300 errors.
BPA has now been shown to cause sexually dimorphic behavior in male rats and monkeys (essentially causing males to act like females) One study documented homosexuality in monkeys exposed to BPA.
The FDA and EPA resisting claims that BPA is unsafe, and refusing to provide any solid evidence to back it up. Peer reviewed studies showing BPA causes effeminate behaviour and homosexuality. A rediculously high rate of homosexuality and feminine behaviour alongside the mass consumption of BPA. Pop cans, canned food, plastic bottles, toys, so many products filled with BPA.
They know. And they've been trying to convince people otherwise for decades. Why?
