Health Canada to Annouce BPA Dangerous

I was tipped off by a reader (thanks!) that Health Canada is on the verge of announcing that Bisphenol-a is a dangerous substance.

Health Canada is expected to classify bisphenol A as a dangerous substance as early as Wednesday, which could lead to regulations on the increasingly controversial chemical.

The move would make the department the first regulatory body anywhere in the world to rule that bisphenol A (BPA) endangers people and the environment…

Canada has always been kind of a step ahead on the BPA issue, but this step, might be the catalyst we need to move in a BPA Free direction here in the US. The FDA is being accused of being selective over what research they chose to rely on in deciding the safety of BPA. I feel the pressure building… it makes me giddy.
