Breaking new research indicates that manufacturers throughout the world who were using the toxic hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A (BPA), may have simply switched to an equally toxic analogue in the same bisphenol chemical class known as bisphenol S (BPS), to evade regulatory oversight and trick consumers with their misleading "BPA-FREE!" labels....
A new study reveals just how profoundly misled we are about Bisphenol A and its analogs: they are at least 100x more toxic than we previously imagined.
You know about the dangers of Bisphenol A (BPA), and hopefully Bisphenol S (BPS), but did you know that there are at least 8 toxic bisphenols in our food supply, with 75% of food samples from the US tested showing significant levels of these ubiquitous poisons?
As we reported on back in June of last year in an exposé titled, Consumer Alert: BPA-Free Goods Still Contain Toxin Bisphenol, the petrochemical bisphenol A (BPA), a ubiquitous ingredient in thousands of consumer products and which has been linked to a wide range of serious adverse health effects, has been removed by many ostensibly scrupulous manufacturers in favor of another equally toxic analog in the same chemical class, known as bisphenol S (BPS).
The Environmental Protection Agency recently removed Bisphenol A from a list of "chemicals of concern" for proposed regulations, once again siding with an increasingly deregulated chemical industry .
Packaged food eaters beware: here's a hint of just a scant few of the items that lurk beneath the label in your packaged food products. And for those who are trying to get your friends and family off of packaged foods and on to a whole foods lifestyle, here's some more ammunition!
Just when you thought it was safe to buy "BPA-free" products, manufacturers flood the marketplace with an alphabet soup of toxic bisphenols.
BPA-lined Containers Hike Blood Pressure - Immediately A recent study finds drinking from BPA-lined containers can immediately raise ones blood pressure. Did you notice the word 'immediately'?
New concern has been raised over the toxicity of dental composites, which have long been promoted as overall safer than mercury-based amalgams, to children’s psychosocial functioning. In fact, new research indicates that bisphenol-A based dental restorations may be more neurotoxic than the mercury ones they were designed to replace, resulting in even greater learning impairment and behavioral issues.
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
