A team of scientists, engineers, policy experts, lawyers and computer programmers at the Environment Working Group (EWG) have gone through government data, legal documents, scientific studies and their own laboratory tests to expose threats to the health of people as well as to the environment. These folks are also working hard to find solutions. Their research has brought to light some unsettling facts that all citizens need to know.
We have written in prior issues about the dangerous chemical BPA. Now the EWG tells us there is more shocking news. In June, food and chemical lobbyists met in our Nation’s Capitol and made plans to save this toxic plastic chemical. EWG says the lobbyists and their bosses are desperate to block state and federal efforts to regulate the $6 billion industry. Internal meeting memoranda have revealed that the industry has instituted a dangerous and unethical strategy to ensure that people keep eating and drinking from BPA-laden containers. This dangerous strategy has been formulated despite the mounting scientific evidence that exposure to even extremely low levels of BPA can have adverse health effects, particularly during infancy. Hopefully, the federal and state governments will not let these lobbyists control what happens on BPA.
