Dear New Parents--and ALL AMERICANS

Dear New Parents--and ALL AMERICANS,

As my wife and I are parents of a 6-month old, my mom sent me this article on a harmful substance that the USA has not been doing anything about: BPA.

NCC lauds Canada for declaring BPA a toxic substance
The National Council of Churches have applauded Canada’s decision to declare Bisphenol A (BPA) to be a toxic substance and called on the United States to follow suit.
BPA is widely used in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins such as water bottles, baby bottles, sippy cups, infant formula containers and food cans.
Studies have found that BPA can interfere with infant and child development and may be a factor leading to breast and prostate cancer.
“Protecting all children of God and the whole of Creation are moral imperatives,” said Chloe Schwabe, NCC Eco-Justice program manager for environmental health.
