    More Bad News About Bisphenol A

    By Mark Schauss | December 8, 2008

    I know, I’m piling on BPA, but darn it, bisphenol A deserves a beat down. Every month I find yet another article in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives that shows how it affects human health but this article about BPA and chemotherapy deserves a recognition.  Seems that BPA can interfere with the effect of chemo as it stops the cancer cells from dying.

    As I’ve mentioned in the past, bisphenol A is a money making machine for industry as estimates say that it generates $100 million dollars an hour in revenue worldwide. Still, the public has to ramp up the demand to remove this product from the market. Other safer alternatives are available and industry knows it, they just have to be forced to do so before any more damage is done.

    Then again, our brilliant FDA thinks that there is insufficient evidence that bisphenol A is harmful to human health.
