it's been a little over a year since BPA first made national headlines. I recall seeing a group, started by mothers, who had been compiling research & pushing the government agencies to do something about it. The biggest risk is the baby bottles.........yikes!
In our family, our reusable water bottles have now been replaced with stainless steel bottles with screw top lids.
I am a chemical engineer by traning/profession, & around the time I graduated from university in 1996, I recall stating that plastics, for the use with foods, would be banned in our lifetime. A few years ago, the warnings about microwaving fatty foods in plastics surfaced, & now BPA.
