    Here we go … BPA in the news again.  I have been wanting to post something about this since I saw it on the evening news the other night.  Consumer Reports just published new findings (but none of it is really news to us) about levels of BPA in canned food.  We knew it was […]

      I was going to let this slide but I’ve heard the same few phrases a few times and now I’m thoroughly annoyed.  These phrases include things like “activist hysteria” and “BPA has been around for 60 years, don’t you think the FDA would have taken notice if it was harmful?” and “activists in the blogosphere […]

        I wrote last week about the meetings manufacturers had regarding the public view of BPA.  Since then the meeting notes we’re leaked to the Internet and many of us were fuming that companies like Coca Cola and Del Monte were discussing using scare tactics and a pregnant woman role model to change our perception of […]

          There’s been a bevy of articles floating around this week about meetings being held by manufacturers of cans and soda products.  They’re concerned because of the public concerns regarding Bisphenol-A (BPA).  Including the makers of Coca-Cola and Campbell.  If you aren’t already aware, soda cans as well as the majority of canned food is lined […]

              This is something we’ve known about and mentioned a while back, but when it comes to BPA, sometimes, it just bears repeating. Yes, there is BPA in those soft drink cans you may have been chugging.   Energy drinks, sodas, those cans of Ensure you might be downing in place of a meal, all cans […]
